Product description

Review

"It's hands down the most informative look at AC/DC's golden years, 1977-80, ever." -- The Canton Repository

"Very eye opening. . . Jesse Fink has done rock fans a great service. He dispels the many myths about how AC/DC's Bon Scott lived and died, and in doing so, brings to life one of the most influential, memorable, and complex figures in rock history." -- Greg Renoff, author of Van Halen Rising

"Jesse Fink is not the first writer to suggest that there's something fishy about the official version of Scott's death and its aftermath, but no one else has offered such a plausible or exhaustively researched alternative theory. . . Vindicating old school journalistic rigour, Fink compiles a vast testimony from multiple sources and invites the reader to decide where the truth lies. . . It's a dense, tangled tale, but Fink reveals the humanity behind the myth." - MOJO Magazine

"A very powerful book." - NewsRadio KLBJ 590AM / 99.7FM

"Crossing continents and tracking key figures down, Fink's work here is impressive; his book is exhaustively investigative and engrossing . . . Bon: The Last Highway views AC/DC's final years with Bon Scott as one giant crime scene that has never been properly solved and offers fans much to contemplate." - Exclaim!

"With the passing of AC/DC founding member and rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young just a few weeks ago, reading about the band's original lead singer Bon Scott has become even more fitting." - BifBamPop.com

"Wildly obsessive and doggedly researched, Bon: The Last Highway sifts through the myths for the truth of what happened to Bon Scott on his last day on earth. Jesse Fink, who seemingly spoke to everyone, moves through a complex web of misconceptions, biases, and addiction-marred memories, connecting narrative strands and hitherto unknown facts. As with Hank Williams - another iconic singer who died mysteriously in the backseat of a car on a lost highway - the story of Bon Scott and his tragic demise may never be accurately known, but this one-man investigation, born of respect for the truth and for Scott as a human being, blazes a new trail." -- Joe Bonomo, author of AC/DC's Highway To Hell (33 1/3 Series)

"It was an honour to be interviewed for this book." -- Barry Bergman, AC/DC's publisher and 'surrogate manager'

"Jesse Fink's book is an interesting read and a great page-turner whether you're particularly interested in Bon himself or just a love of a great Rock and Roll story." - The Rockpit Australia

"Jesse Fink's exhaustively researched book is a revelation for fans." - Ultimate Classic Rock

"It is a fascinating portrait of a troubled man with a serious alcohol addiction. . . Fink does not claim his book is definitive, but it is a damn good effort." - Irish Times

Book Description
