The death of Bon Scott is the Da Vinci Code of rock. As the legend of the man known around the world simply as 'Bon' has grown with each passing year since his untimely death, AC/DCs trailblazing frontman has become a rock icon. But how much of it is true and how much is myth?

At the heart of Bon: The Last Highway: The Untold Story of Bon Scott and AC/DC's Back In Black is a special - and unlikely - friendship between a Scottish-born Australian rock star and an alcoholic Texan rebel. Jesse Fink, author of the critically acclaimed international bestseller The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC, reveals its importance in Bon's story for the first time.

Leaving no stone unturned in a journey that begins in Austin in 1977 and ends in London in 1980, Fink takes the reader back to the end of the '70s, a legendary era for music that saw the relentless AC/DC machine achieve its commercial breakthrough but also threaten to come apart.

With unprecedented access to Bon's lovers, newly unearthed documents, and a trove of never-before-seen photos, Fink divulges startling new information about Bon's incredible life and his final hours to solve the mystery of how he died.

Music fans around the world have been waiting for the original, forensic, unflinching, masterful biography Bon Scott so richly deserves and now, finally, it's here.

'The most extensively researched book on AC/DC ever ... it's outstanding. This is as close as anyone is ever gonna get to the complete truth behind the legend, warts and all.'
- B. J. LISKO, Canton Repository

'This one-man investigation, born of respect for the truth and for Bon Scott as a human being, blazes a new trail.'
- JOE BONOMO, author of AC/DC's Highway To Hell (33 1/3 Series)

'Jesse Fink has done rock fans a great service. He dispels the many myths about how AC/DC's Bon Scott lived and died, and in doing so, brings to life one of the most influential, memorable and complex figures in rock history.'
- GREG RENOFF, author of Van Halen Rising

Review

Praise for Bon: The Last Highway by Jesse Fink:

'Wildly obsessive and doggedly researched, Bon: The Last Highway sifts through the myths for the truth of what happened to Bon Scott on his last day on earth. Jesse Fink, who seemingly spoke to everyone, moves through a complex web of misconceptions, biases, and addiction-marred memories, connecting narrative strands and hitherto unknown facts. As with Hank Williams - another iconic singer who died mysteriously in the backseat of a car on a lost highway - the story of Bon Scott and his tragic demise may never be accurately known, but this one-man investigation, born of respect for the truth and for Scott as a human being, blazes a new trail.'
- Joe Bonomo, author of AC/DC's Highway to Hell (33 1/3 Series)

'The most in-depth investigation into what happened to Bon Scott on the night of his death you'll ever read.'
- Rich Davenport, Rich Davenport's Rock Show

'The most extensively researched book on AC/DC ever... it's outstanding. The stories, the crazy attention to every detail ... it's pretty clear this took years to do. It is clearly the mother of all AC/DC books. By a mile and then some. It's killer. This story gets more incredible by the chapter. If you thought you knew Bon Scott, think again. This is as close as anyone is ever gonna get to the complete truth behind the legend, warts and all.'
- B.J. Lisko, Canton Repository, Ohio

'Very eye opening... Jesse Fink has done rock fans a great service. He dispels the many myths about how AC/DC's Bon Scott lived and died, and in doing so, brings to life one of the most influential, memorable, and complex figures in rock history.'
- Greg Renoff, author of Van Halen Rising

'Fink leaves no stone unturned in this deep biography of Bon Scott, the original AC/DC front man.'
- Publishers Weekly

'It was an honour to be interviewed for this book.'
- Barry Bergman, AC/DC's publisher and 'surrogate manager' at Edward B. Marks Music Corporation, 1976-79
