Don Coleman Tribute Song To AC/DC Vocalist Bon Scott Airing On Radio Stations

Don Coleman, Canada's Premiere AC/DC vocalist has recorded the song "Women, Whiskey & Rock'n'Roll" to celebrate the life and spirit of Bon Scott. You can listen to the song by visiting the Coleman's MySpace page.

The song has been airing daily on Australia's Rebel FM Network ( 40 stations in Queensland / NSW) plus has been airing weekly on PERTH 107.3 FM and Twin Cities 89.7 FM on specific shows (more coming on board everyday). The latter two stations are close to Fremantle, Western Australia where there was a concert last weekend to unveil a statue of Bon Scott. At this concert, one of the bands performing was the re-formed Party Boys. Members of the band, Vince Lovegrove (former bandmate of Bon in The Valentines), Aussie Legend - Kevin Borich and Angels drummer Buzz Bidstrup, all think this song is a "ripper" (Aussie slang for fantastic). Also on the list of great responses came from Susan Masino, published author of "Let There Be Rock" ( a book on Bon and AC/DC) and President of the Bon Scott Fan Club, Doug Thorncroft who loved the song. Don, Susan and Doug were on WRUW 91.1 FM last week to do on air interviews, on a show that was dedicated to the memory of Bon Scott, and to launch the song in the USA. Last w/e, Don did other radio interviews when the song aired on Newcap FM Net station K-Rock 105.5, Charlottetown, PEI., Canadian Broadcasting Corp's 106.1 FM, Moncton, NB and 98.9 Big John FM , St. John, NB.

Don has been receiving offers from England, Scotland, Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the USA to front many bands and to do tours. One such offer came from the original frontman for AC/DC, Dave Evans who also performed in Fremantle at the concert. Don has also received a request for the song from long time friend of Bon's and long time bassist of Ozzy Osbourne, Bob Daisley.

Only Bon Scott and Brian Johnson can be Bon Scott and Brian Johnson but this guy does a wicked tribute to both singers. Any one who has the balls to get up on stage and pay tribute to these great singers and pull it off this well deserves a lot of credit.
Good on him! I checked out his song about Bon and was very impressed. Looks like this Coleman guy is right on the mark.
