Melbourne has been promoting its lanes, and street art therein. Given my affection for both Bon Scott era AC/DC & street art, last time we visited Melbourne, the top of my yellow post-it to-do list was ACDC Lane. “Corporation Lane (the generic name assigned to otherwise unnamed lanes in Melbourne) was renamed, in part, due to the band AC/DC’s ties to Melbourne, their status as cultural ambassadors for Australia, and the lane’s position in the city’s bar and rock district”.
By the time we got there ACDC Lane had seen better days. Perhaps the patrons of the local Cherry Bar even though supposedly music motivated weren’t fans. At least there were no posters of Brian Johnson.
Bon Scott would have celebrated his 66th birthday this week. If you ask who is Bon Scott? you may as well stop reading now. “Ronald Belford “Bon” Scott (9 July 1946– 19 February 1980) was a Scottish-born Australian rock musician, best known for being the lead singer and lyricist of Australian hard rock band AC/DC from 1974 until his death in 1980.”
It’s hard to believe Bon’s dead and even harder to believe that if he wasn’t dead, he would be an O.A.P. Even so…
Bon, you know I love you so Baby, Please Don’t Go.
