Scott.... well, he is a Scotsman.
Anyways, GREAT POST!
Rest in Peace Bon! I was just a little fella when you left us, but luckily my parents had good taste in music, so I grew up listening to you.
Aye that's right,like Angus & Malcolm (and myself.lol) he was born in Scotland and his family moved to Australia when he was 10.He did get his name
from his friends for being Scottish.
'Bonnie Scotland' is an expression so that's why he would have got the name Bonnie Scott or just Bon.Bonnie means more pretty,lovely or nice more
as in it's a bonnie day or a bonnie lassie
