Bon Scott was the original front man for AC/DC and lead them to success with hit albums like High Voltage, Let There Be Rock, and Highway to Hell. Brian Johnson took over in 1980 after Scott’s death. Johnson’s first album was Back in Black which became the second all-time best selling album worldwide according to some estimates. There are things I like about both, but I prefer the gritty sound of Bon Scott. It sounded more natural and down and dirty. Which did you like best?
Join me Friday night at midnight for the 1977 album Let There Be Rock on the 98 Rocks Album Archive. The title track Let There Be Rock, Whole Lotta Rosie, and Dog Eat Dog are just a few of the songs on this album which features Bon Scott on vocals.
