Ronald Belford "Bon" Scott (July 9, 1946 - February 19, 1980) was a Scottish singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist best known as the lead vocalist of hard rock band AC/DC from 1974 until his death in 1980. Scott provided lead vocals for AC/DC's first seven studio albums, most of which have become commercially and critically successful.
Scott is widely considered to be one of the greatest hard rock frontmen of all-time. In the July 2004 issue of Classic Rock magazine, Scott was rated as number one in a list of the "100 Greatest Frontmen of All Time" ahead of Freddie Mercury and Robert Plant, and Hit Parader ranked Scott fifth on their list of the 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Vocalists of all time in 2006. He was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of AC/DC in 2003.
