AC/DC's MALCOLM YOUNG: BON SCOTT Has Never Left The Band

March 6, 2003

Late AC/DC singer Bon Scott, who died in 1980 after a drunken binge, is being inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame posthumously, and guitarist Malcolm Young says the flamboyant frontman will certainly be in the house — in spirit, at least.

"[Bon]'s never left the band," Malcolm explained. "That's just the way that we are, you know? We're very tight as a unit. He's always there, you know, as far as we're concerned. You just never forget, you know? There's so many stories, it creeps in every day--and if it's not one of the band, it's a fan, you know, so it's great for us. It just shows you how popular and how long back it remains so popular, you know? And the more time passes, the bigger that Bon gets, in a way."

The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony takes place at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City on Monday, March 10. In addition, AC/DC will play a free show in the city on Tuesday (March 11) at the Roseland Ballroom.

An edited version of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony will air March 16 on VH1.
