THE gravesite of Bon Scott, the legendary lead singer of veteran rockers AC/DC, has become one of Australia's most treasured cultural icons.

More than 26 years after Scott's death, the National Trust of Australia has decreed his grave in Fremantle cemetery important enough to be included on the the list of classified heritage places.
The listing, traditionally reserved for heritage buildings and homes, confirms the cultural importance of the site, which is one of the most visited sites in Fremantle, attracting thousands of fans every year.

Kim Haynes, the National Trust's WA heritage officer, said Scott's place in the annals of Australian and international music meant his final resting place deserved recognition.

If you can get your hands on a dvd of 'akker dakker', watch it. Bon Scott had the perfect voice for their band.

Bon Scott was an amazing singer and full of talent. Very tragic what happened to him. AC/DC should have crumbled from there, but if there was anybody in the world that could have replaced Scott with the justice he deserved, it was deffinately Brian Johnson.

These guys had 2 distinct sounds, and you can't help but love both of them. I have the AC/DC - Hells Bells dvd that was released not that long ago full of alot of their performances, including their first live set. They dressed up as school girls..

No band in the world would ever put on a better performance than these guys.
