Maybe some of you remember that today it’s been 40 years since we left a great rock personality.
Of course, I mean Bon Scott.

Quote:
Scott formed his first group, The Spektors, in 1964 and became the band’s drummer and occasional lead vocalist. He performed in several other bands including The Valentines and Fraternity before replacing Dave Evans as the lead singer of AC/DC in 1974.

AC/DC’s popularity grew throughout the 1970s, initially in Australia, and then internationally. Their 1979 album Highway to Hell reached the top twenty in the United States, and the band seemed on the verge of a commercial breakthrough. However, on 19 February 1980, Scott spent a night of partying in London. Aged only 33 at the time, he passed out after drinking heavily in a London club. …


There is a lot of information. For those who are interested – here is a one of the good sites:

Yes 40, but they pass so fast, believe me… Facepalm

I checked on random sites for “top 100 hard rock songs” and more than 70% (approximately) of the songs are over 40 years old. If you add the next 10 years, you will reach almost 100 percent.

sparkyDK, вecause, you have a good sense of music according to my understanding, you should know that. Beer Beer Beer

Hi Bonham,

I’m back on the forum after a long break…
With reference to Bon Scott, I live about 10km from the port of Fremantle, Western Australia where Bon grew up.
In honour of him they commissioned a statue of him in the harbour. We often went there for fish and chips but that all ended with the virus scare. I used to work with an old guy who was one of the top drummers in the local 60’s bands. He knew Bon well and used to give him drumming lessons.
Here is a link:

I don’t remember seeing that statue in 1997, though i did venture out back from the little hotel / B&B i stayed on for 2 days, then turned left along Riverside RD and followed it towards the harbor.
But i hope to be back in style soon and then i will see the statue as i will have plenty of time to explore AU, and not just a day and a half waiting for the ship i engaged May 8 1997 ( my first time as engineer on a ship )

Actually i hope to be back, and never leave again, but the whole matter are up to the lotto gods, otherwise i am not going anywhere a tank of gasoline cant take me.

Don Henley – Boys of Summer

I have been trying to contact atbglenn for some time now. A Google email returns a reply that the recipient’s inbox is overflowing and the message cannot be received.
Our last contact was from June last year.
I hope everything is ok with Glenn and he’s among us again.

Been listening to quite a bit of synthwave recently. This particular one weaves in elements of #metalwave and #metalsynth into it…

It’s not exotic, just a good old tune …
The Egles – New Kid In Town


Some more link
“New Kid in Town” takes on two meanings. The literal interpretation involves the experience of a band becoming famous and being treated differently in society, because they are now seen as celebrities. As time passes by, another up-and-coming band becomes more popular than them, causing them to fade away into history.

The song can also be applied to a break-up in a relationship, where a person leaves because they found someone better.

“New Kid in Town” won the Eagles a Grammy Award for Best Arrangement for Voices in 1977.

Dear friends and lovers of older music.
I’m sorry to have to tell you, but this is real life.

About our friend atbglenn:

“Glenn passed away in July 2019…”

and a few of Glenn’s memories:

A rare tune written by Bill Wyman from The Rolling Stones sung by Mick Jagger. A great tune I must say.

Thanks djmcconn and Robowski for the respect of the Glenn! The bass guitar was his great weakness and love, as far as I know…
