AC/DC Quotes:
"I've seen Bon drink three bottles of Bourbon straight off...even though he did like to drink and have a crazy time, he was always there when you needed him to do his job"
Angus Young

"I was annoyed that Bon wasn't given the respect due when he was alive."
Brian Johnson

"We saw more of [Bon] than his family did, especially us three. It was always me, Bon & Malcolm. We hung out together. Go to clubs together, get thrown out of clubs together..."
Angus Young

"One second he was there, you could see him in the booth then the next second he was down! The guys doing the recording kept asking Bon to do the line one more time, and every time he kept givin' his all, but in between takes you could hear him drinkin' down whiskey, (if you listen really close you can hear it on the album!) it was like: With a bullet in his back... Guzzle, guzzle, guzzle... With a bullet in his back... Guzzle guzzle guzzle. And finally on the last one (the one we used on the record) he just gave it everything he had and passed out, we all kinda went around and just seen him there on the floor"
Angus Young

Have you got any kids?"
"My wife says I'm the only one"
Angus Young

"I'm sick to death of people saying we've made 11 albums that sounds exactly the same, Infact, we've made 12 albums that sound exactly the same"
Angus Young

"I've been on the road for fifteen years and I had no intent to stop. We meet a lot of people, we drink lots of stuff and have lots of fun"
Bon Scott

"I was in a band called the valentines and they broke up last week. -laughs"
Bon Scott

"We never care about labels such as punk, psyedellic or whatever else."
Bon Scott

"Style, I didn't think we had any! I just plug in and hit the thing really hard. That's my style...or lack of one!"
Angus Young

"I just go where the guitar takes me."
Angus Young

"I'd like to do a whole string of concerts headlining as big as this one is today. The more people they can give us upfront the harder we play."
Bon Scott, Newsbeat 1978

"We'd been drinking in the airport bar for about ten minutes when I says, 'don't you think it's time we caught our plane?' and she says, 'What do you mean our plane? Im staying here.' I runs back and the f*ckin' planes gone. Anway she takes me to this black bar and she's Mexican-and I starts drinkin' and playin' pool. I had a goodnight, beatin' every bastard. After about two hours playin' this big titted black chick and beatin' her too, I happen to look and the bar is goin', 'Grrr.' I think, 'Uh oh Bon,' I gives her another game and lose nine to one. 'Anyone else want to beat me?' I says. So I escapes with me life, only barely-and I made it to the gig in Austin."
Bon Scott

"Punk and all that was just an image that ripped people off. Johnny Rotten's a wanker, and that's all there is to it."
Brian Johnson
