Fireside yarns from a laid-back Fan

Just don’t call me a “die-hard”, OK!

Cos I’ll take you to task live on radio (albeit in my own rather gentle way) as I did in this roooooolly laaaaaid baaaaack interview with Shamin from 2ser Radio Programme “The Fourth Estate”.

Sheesh, it sounds like we’re yarning over the first cup of coffee of the day – or rather, mine hasn’t quite arrived yet, I’m on half-speed but still trying to sound intelligent.

Have I become so confident in my new-found fandom that I’ve hit a plateau of complacency?

If you haven’t already seen the artworks in the Bon Scott Project Exhibition at Fremantle Arts Centre, the ones I refer to in this interview are Nat Paton’s self portrait, Stuart Bailey’s Merchandise Stall, and Cecilia Fogelberg’s little soft sculpture of Bon.

Phew, I think that’s nearly all the media coverage so far. There are a few more trickling through, notably a TV interview Katie Dyer and I did on Channel V. I’ll keep youse posted, when I next get outta bed…

  1. I beg to differ, Lucas, a person can become a die hard Bon Scott fan in the blink of an eye. I did. Somewhere else in this blog I contributed my little Bon awakening, so I won’t repeat it. Suddenly I HAD to know everything I could about Bon. Since I’m a reference librarian in an academic setting, I had a blast ferreting out bits & pieces of Bon lore. And I’m still enchanted with everything Bon. It’d be heaven to be there and be able, as you are, to meet some of Bon’s friends and hear about their Bon escapades.

  2. interesting! thanks susann. yes, i suppose i had an “epiphany” too, an awakening as you call it, at the big concert where they unveiled the bon scott bronze statue.

    how long ago did you have yours? can you point me to your story on this blog (i guess it would have been one of your early posts, but there are so many now!)

    thanks for your thoughts, i’m really enjoying the dialogue between you and Carolyn…
