Classic Rock  |  December 2017  

Bon Scott’s death is arguably to rock music what the JFK assassination is to American political history: the great unsolved mystery of our time. The players involved contradict each other, pieces of crucial information are missing, and very little of what has been presented as fact stands up to rigorous scrutiny; all of which fuels the various conspiracy theories. Much of the generally accepted version of events has been built around the testimonies of Alistair Kinnear, Joe Fury and Silver Smith, three people all allegedly associated in some way with heroin; the tight-lipped members of AC/DC; and a Japanese girl, Anna Baba, who had only recently been dumped by Bon after a casual relationship that lasted less than four weeks and wasn’t actually with him on the night of his death. So the questions remain, exactly when, where and, especially, how did Bon Scott die? Thirty-seven years after the event, and twelve years after Classic Rock discovered mysterious events and possible dirty deeds, still no one knows for sure. In his new book, Jesse Fink throws intriguing new light on a dark story.
