Bon Scott To Get A True Highway To Hell

If anyone would have told Bon Scott that they would possibly be naming a street after him in his childhood home of Sunshine he probably would have laughed at you, then bought you a beer and a shot, but it could be happening.

Some devoted AC/DC  fans in Melbourne, Australia are campaigning to get a street near the house where he grew up named after him.  They would like to call it simply Bon Scott Lane.  Paul Murphy, a former Sunshine resident is the biggest proponent  of it.  He said in an interview with Brimbank Weekly:

More people know AC/DC than they do HV McKay and having a Bon Scott Lane will make Sunshine famous all around the world, Bon lived in Sunshine, went to school there and played one of his first gigs there. He would have walked down the laneway we’re looking to dedicate to him, because it was a shortcut for kids to get to Sunshine Tech and Sunshine Primary.

It sounds like a pretty cool idea to me.  I love AC/DC and would love to see one of the best front men of all time honored in his home town.  For more on the story click here.
