Nighttime 10at10: 4/17 1980

April 17, 2014, 11:00 pm

In February of 1980, AC/DC lost their lead vocalist Bon Scott to acute alcohol poisoning. It’s hard to imagine that it only took six weeks to find their next lead vocalist Brian Johnson, but he clicked and the group had their biggest selling album three months later with Back in Black. Rumor has it that before his death Bon Scott told the band about this amazing singer named Brian Johnson.

Back in Black -AC/DC
She’s So Cold – Rolling Stones
Hell is For Children – Pat Benatar
Hungry Heart – Bruce Springsteen
Driven to Tears – Police
Comfortably Numb – Pink Floyd
Alabama Getaway – Grateful Dead
Boulevard – Jackson Browne
Babylon Sisters – Steely Dan
Ah Leah – Donnie Iris
