Every year AC/DC tribute band Bon But Not Forgotten tours the music of AC/DC to pay homage to the Bon Scott on his birthday month.
This year, he would have turned 77.
This tour promises a high voltage set at the Koala Tavern on July 14 and features the best of the best.
Guitarist James Morley (formerly from The Angels) said every tour often featured a different album and different artists featured in the band.
These have included former AC/DC members as well as musicians from Screaming Jets, Rose Tattoo and The Angels.
This year, Bon But Not Forgotten’s line-up features Skenie (The Poor) on vocals, Dario Bortolin (The Baby Animals) on bass, David Kirby (The Chantoozies) on drums and Eddie Santacreu on guitar.
Special guests are Poundcake: The Van Halen show and Quintessential Queen, featuring The Voice finalist, Virginia Lillye.
Morley said he had been a fan of AC/DC since first hearing one of the albums at age eight.
“I have been hooked since then and a mad, mad fan. I moved to Australia (from England) at age 12 and because they were Australian, they became a presence – almost omnipresent – in my life,” Morley said.
“I started playing a tennis racquet in front of the window. But then I was privileged to play bass for The Angels and it grew from there.
“There is so much to choose from when we pick our set list, but we can’t play for five hours.”
Morley said his favourite AC/DC song was Gone Shootin’ from the Powerage album.
“There is something raw and honest about it. When it was recorded the band was on fire,” he said.
“They’d been touring and gelled 100 per cent as a unit and so did the songs.”
