Bon Scott: Age 33 | Cause Of Death: INHALATION OF VOMIT


(b. Ronald Scott, 9 July 1946, Kirriemuir, Scotland, d. 20 February 1980)

Scott graduated from being AC/DC’s chauffeur to becoming their vocalist.  HIGHWAY TO HELL in 1979 established them as international stars. This, the band’s first album with producer Mutt Lange, also proved to be their last with Bon Scott. On 20 February 1980, after a night of heavy drinking, he was left unconscious in a friend’s car, and was later found to be dead, having choked on his own vomit. The coroner recorded a verdict of death by misadventure.       Grave Site
