"The thing I loved most about Bon Scott, was his almost unique self honesty. What you saw was what you got, he was a real person and as honest as the day is long. To my mind he was the street poet of my generations and of the generations that followed." -The Valentines, Vince Lovegrove(former bandmate) Bon Scott - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
