Author Greg Prato has always done a great job at putting together books that suck you in.  They’re always easy reads, and are usually full of people that were there telling you their side of things.  So you’re being told about events from various points of view, which makes everything that much cooler.  He’s about to release a book on the legendary AC/DC frontman, Bon Scott.  Here’s the information that was sent to us about the book:

There have been few rock singers as beloved as the late/great Bon Scott of AC/DC. After all, it was his unmistakable vocals and street-wise/sexually-charged lyrics that were a major part of such all-time classic rock anthems as “Highway to Hell,” “Sin City,” “Whole Lotta Rosie,” “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap,” and “TNT.” And it was the “Bon era” that set the stage for AC/DC to go on to become one of rock’s most universally popular and enduring bands.

But few rockers partied as hard as Bon—sadly resulting in his death at the age of 33 on February 19, 1980, just before AC/DC scored their worldwide breakthrough, with the mega-selling ‘Back in Black.’ To mark 40 years since Bon’s tragic passing, the just-released ‘A Rockin’ Rollin’ Man: Bon Scott Remembered’ has been assembled by journalist/author Greg Prato—comprised entirely of all-new interviews with renowned rockers, discussing what made Bon so special and unforgettable.

Priced at $12.99 for the paperback and $7.99 for the Kindle version, the book features vintage photos and all-new interviews with the likes of Tony Platt (engineer of ‘Highway to Hell’ and ‘Back in Black’), Simon Wright (AC/DC drummer: 1983-1989), KK Downing (ex-Judas Priest guitarist), Scott Gorham (Thin Lizzy guitarist), Bun E. Carlos (ex-Cheap Trick drummer), Michael Monroe (Hanoi Rocks singer), and Phil Anselmo (Pantera singer), among many others.

Greg Prato is a writer and journalist from New York, whose writing has appeared via such outlets as Songfacts, Vintage Guitar Magazine, and Consequence of Sound. He is also the author of several popular books, including ‘Take It Off: Kiss Truly Unmasked,’ ‘Touched by Magic: The Tommy Bolin Story,’ and ‘Iron Maiden: 80 81,’ among many others. And you may have even heard him on one of his many radio or TV appearances, which include interviews on ‘The Howard Stern Wrap-Up Show,’ ‘Eddie Trunk Live,’ and ‘The Ron & Fez Show.’ ‘A Rockin’ Rollin’ Man: Bon Scott Remembered’ is his 30th book overall.

One thought on “News: Greg Prato To Release Book On Bon Scott

  1. Dear Greg,
    Being in lockdown from virus…surfing internet found the article about how this song was written..” I Want You To Want Me”

    I wrote the main lyrics of this song when I was a women in my early 20’s. I wrote it about a broken relationship with my high school sweetheart who I still loved obsessively.

    I mailed it to a magazine who wanted poetry at that time.

    Later on possibly the next year..I am driving down the road and hear my exact lyrics being sung on my car radio…imagine the shock .. Then the amazement and pride that I had a hand in that popular song.

    I just wanted someone to know.

    Thank you for your time.
