Don Coleman, Canada's Premiere AC/DC Vocalist, has recorded a song to celebrate the life and spirit of Bon Scott former frontman for AC/DC. The song 'Women, Whiskey & Rock'n'Roll' has been airing daily in Australia on the Rebel FM Network (40 stations is Queensland / NSW ) plus two stations near Fremantle, Western Australia - where there was a concert to unveil a statue of Bon Scott - PERTH 107.3 FM and 89.7 FM (still airing on Pippa Kidman's show) on weekly shows. Each day there are more Australian, Canadian, European and American FM Stations coming onboard to air the song.

The song launched on WRUW FM 91.1 in Cleveland, Ohio ( home of the R&R Hall of Fame) complete with an on air interview with Don Coleman, on a show dedicated to the memory of Bon Scott. Also on the show where 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 both love the song. The song aired on the Newcap FM Network on K-Rock 105.5 in Charlottetown, PEI, along with an interview with Don, as well as FM Stations in St. John 98.9 FM (morning and afternoon 'drive time' programs), NB and Moncton 106.1 FM, NB, Canada. Most recently it aired on C103 FM Moncton on their "Indie Files Show", In Toronto Canada on thatradio, plus several Internet FM Radio Stations. It has just received requests to air in Scotland, Ireland and England plus stations in Louisiana and Minnesota. The song will also be part of a compilation CD to help raise funds for the Australian Cancer Council. The song along with the 'homage' video is also now on AC/DC's website - www.acdc.com/fromtheboys . Don will be doing more media interviews with various Music Magazines & Stations in the coming weeks.

Other notable reviews came from Vince Lovegrove ( former bandmate of Bon's in the 'Valentines'), Aussie Legend - Kevin Borich, 'Angels' drummer Buzz Bidstrup who performed at the Fremantle concert to unveil the statue, in their re-formed band the 'Party Boys'. They all think the song is a 'ripper'. I received a request for the song from longtime friend of Bon and longtime bassist for Ozzy Osbourne, Bob Daisley who thinks Don did a great job on the song.

Don has been receiving many offers from : England, Scotland, Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the USA, to front many bands and to tour. One such offer came from the original frontman for AC/DC, Dave Evans who also performed in Fremantle.

You can listen to the song by visiting the dedicated site at www.myspace.com/doncoleman . You can also see the video that goes with the song by going to YouTube and searching "Don Coleman". There's also performance footage of Don's AC/DC Tribute material.

I like the older AC/DC era much better although Brian Johnson is still a good singer, Bon Scott was waaayy better!!! People always compare Bon and Brian only because Brian took over after Bon died to sing in his former band, it's not like they'd be compared if Bon was still alive and singing with AC/DC. They're just too different. Bon is just better... he's a legend, he had more character and spunk (even though Brian Johnson is still a good singer)not to mention I can actually understand him unlike when Brian is singing!

yeah i agree, brian is good, however bon scott was better. His vocals were better and his stage presence was one of a kind. Yet another legend that left us way to soon.
