On what would have been Bon Scott's 72nd birthday, we're celebrating his life, music and legacy at KISW. Here are 5 things we absolutely LOVE about the late AC/DC vocalist.


1. He was a vocal powerhouse, and many would argue that he's one of the greatest rock singers of all time.


2. The music he made decades ago is still enjoyed to the fullest today, and right here on KISW.


3. There is an annual a music festival held in his name in his hometown in Scotland.

We can't wait for this amazing line up! #bonscott #acdc #bonfest #chrisslade #massivewagons #wholelottavoltage #philcampbellandthebastardsons #bontheacdcshow #gerryjablonski #dirtydc #emeraldsunday #restlessnatives #kirriemuir

4. He was a multi-instrumentalist - he could play the drums, too!


5. He could rock a denim vest like no other. 


AC/DC continues to be a core artist at The Rock of Seattle, and the contributions and talent of Bon Scott will forever be remembered. Join us in celebrating what would have been his 72nd birthday!


Happy Rocking,
