On the 19th of February, 1980, a drunk-as-ever Bon Scott died by choking on his own vomit. No one had money on the band producing a follow-up to the recent explosive success of the more than perfect Highway to Hell. The shorts-wearing Angus Young and his band, however, found the strength to find a replacement, Brian Johnson, who quickly came to impose his strong high-pitched singing style. What’s more, in only two months they put together an album of epic proportion: Back in Black. The album broke down the boundaries of hard rock, a genre which experienced its moment of glory in the early 80s as the band set themselves up to top the charts with every new release.
