Former wife of AC/DC front man Bon Scott says drunken motorbike crash CHANGED his voice… and made him a superstar

September 30, 2014

Bon Scott is an undisputed legend of Australian music but that may have never been the case but for a terrible motorbike crash. Irene Thornton, his wife of two years and lifelong friend, has just released a tell-all book on their tumultuous time together, based on 15 never-before published letters by the rocker. On the night of May 3, 1974, he sped off on in a drunken rage and was flung from his motorbike. He very nearly died, and spent almost a month in hospital, but Irene says after the accident ‘his voice didn’t sound the same’.
