40 Year Itch : The Bonnie Prince of Hard Rock

On October 24, 1974 the heavy-drinking, big time womanizing Bon Scott grabbed the mic and performed  his first gig with AC/DC, replacing the original singer Dave Evans. Within four years the Australian bar band would be one of the world's biggest grossing rock groups.Within six years Scott would be dead. But what a party his life must have been!  Bon Scott probably upset a fair number of parents in his day. It wasn't a bit out of character for him to write a song about his ex-wife called "She's Got Balls".

She's got balls my lady 
Likes to crawl my lady 
Hands and knees all around the floor 
No one has to tell her what a fella is for
