Brian Johnson pales in comparison to Bon. I like Johnson but AC/DC got soft when Bon died.
Look at the output of Bon Scott era AC/DC compared to Johnson's. There's no comparison.
Let There Be Rock, High Voltage, Highway to Hell, If You Want Blood etc. Albums like Fly on the Wall, Ballbreaker or even Razor's Edge and Back in Black are pretty tame compared to Bon's stuff.

Who is on the cover and what month issue? We get Classic Rock and others late here in the US.

Strange, Mercury was a greater frontman than Bon Scott I think.

Second place is NOT good enough for our Fred! He could outsing Bon Scott (God rest his soul) anytime and in any guise. Even with a sore throat!

Bon Scott was the original singer in AD/DC. And a great one too! Unfortunately he drowned himself in his own pukes after drinking to much. (Have we heard it before!?) But, Fred is of course no 1.

Ok. Thanks for the info. It's funny that Freddie was beaten by a guy that so many people don't know.

On the other hand, most people's answer to the question "Who is Freddie Mercury?" is unfortunately "That's the gay that died of AIDS" :-(

Who the hell is Bon Scott? on my part aswell. And Jagger should be in top 5. Freddie is the most entertaining performer ever. Should be numero uno

So many people *here* don't know... this place is full of closed-minded Queen fans who can't even entertain the fact that someone may have been as good or better than Freddie Mercury at anything...

I know who Bon Scott is. I even know his real name. As should any rock fan. I also know the only Australian was the drummer.

Bon Scott was cool but so is the guy who replaced him, but his name escapes me at the moment.

Anyone know what month issue of Classic Rock that's in? :?

Ha Ha Guitar Hero its a Queen Message Board if we weren't Queen fans we probably wouldn't be here! But I have to say having seen Freddie and Bon Scott Fred pissed all over him in fact Angus was/is more of a focal point for AC/DC whereas Fred didn't have that much competition for Stage space with Queen although Brian could do his Guitar God impressions very well! lol

For the record Dave Vanian is a brilliant frontman as well and still going strong! Like a fine wine he gets even better with age although he has to be brilliant to crab attention from Captain!
