Angus Young and Bon Scott, hand-drawn in Camden, London, England in August of 1979 to promote their AC DC album “Highway To Hell”.
Highway to Hell is the sixth studio album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, released on July 27, 1979.
Recording commenced at the Roundhouse Studios in Chalk Farm, north London in March 1979; the band spent three months there, writing and recording.
The band’s lineup: Bon Scott, Angus Young, Malcolm Young, Cliff Williams and Phil Rudd.
Highway to Hell became AC/DC’s first LP to break the US Top 100, eventually reaching number 17, and it propelled the band into the top ranks of hard rock acts.
It is the second highest selling AC/DC album (behind Back in Black) and is generally considered one of the greatest hard rock albums ever made.
The opening guitar riff of “Beating Around the Bush” has been referred to by journalist Phil Sutcliffe as “almost a tribute … a reflection, I hesitate to say a copy” of “Oh Well” by Fleetwood Mac.
The album was the last album featuring lead singer Bon Scott.
On the evening of February 18, 1980, Scott had visited a London club called the Music Machine and got heavily intoxicated.
He was left to sleep in a Renault 5 owned by his friend Alistair Kinnear, at 67 Overhill Road in East Dulwich. Later the next day, Kinnear found Scott lifeless, and alerted the authorities.
Scott was taken to King’s College Hospital in Camberwell, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The official report of the coroner concluded that Scott had died of “acute alcohol poisoning” and classified it as “death by misadventure”.
Others contend that pulmonary aspiration of vomit was the cause of Scott’s death via a suspected heroin overdose.
He was 33.
