NOTE ADDED 15 JULY 2008:
THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE SHOWN INTEREST IN THE BON SCOTT CROTCH APRON.
HOWEVER, IN ORDER TO RESPECT A FRIENDLY REQUEST FROM BON’S FAMILY, I HAVE DECIDED TO WITHDRAW THE APRON FROM SALE.
PLEASE EMAIL ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THIS WITHDRAWAL FROM SALE.
-CHEERS, LUCAS FROM BON SCOTT BLOG…
[PS: THE ORIGINAL BLOG POST ABOUT THE APRON FOLLOWS – FOR YOUR INFORMATION ONLY. HOWEVER, YOU WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO PURCHASE THE BON SCOTT CROTCH APRON.
July 9th, as you all know, is Bon’s Birthday. Amazingly, the rocker would be youthful 62 this year!
Well, the Bon Scott Blog is happy to announce a new gift for that Bon Scott Lover in your life who’s “got it all”…
The Limited Edition Bon Scott Crotch Apronâ„¢, as modelled so fetchingly above by Alyssa.
The apron was hand-silkscreened by print guru Alyssa and myself in the dying days of my artist-in-residence in Fremantle. You can see photos of the printing in progess here.
The apron is designed to sit snugly over your hips, creating the illusion, for as long as you wear it, that you have acquired the well packaged groin of Australia’s greatest rocker. To boot, you get the deliciously hairy belly and a bit of microphone on the lower right hand side…
The drawing featured on the apron is the same one I used as an iron-on for my Bon Scott Crotch singlet when I went to the big concert. It was done by my friend Hana Shimada. Very adept with a lead pencil, that Hana.
The screen was kindly prepared for me by West Australian printing maven Susanna Castleden from Curtin University.
The aprons themselves were custom made in Melbourne, of the finest cotton drill, and supplied by Australian ApronMakers. Athol Kelly, the dad of my friend Deborah helped me out by getting the aprons to me in record time and at a good price.
To top it off, every apron comes with a hand-sewn, gold-on-black Bon Scott Blog tag (just like grandma used to fix onto your clothes so you didn’t get ’em nicked at school). Many of these tags were sewn on by my girlfriend Lizzie while she watched television.
So folks, as you can see these aprons are a labour of love from the sweatshop of Bon!
Now, this is a very limited edition print run – only 50 of these aprons are available, so get in quick!
A bargain at only AUD$55 dollars plus postage and handling! For obvious reasons, I am restricting sales to one apron per person. If you want an apron, email me now: lucas[at]bonscottblog[dot]com and we’ll work out all the payment and postage options…

Sensational…way too good for the kitchen.
Do you read spanish? in case not, the important bit of the above says: I don’t like to cook, but if I had one of these aprons surely I’d be the greatest chef in the world.
what I really came here for though was to check out the apron- cool! funny! brilliant!
erm, but I don’t know if my dad will get it.
Haha that’s great Deborah, thanks for the Pablo-translation. Ya gotta love Pablo.
Perhaps I shall send your dad an enlargement of a photograph of the apron so he can put it on the wall of his office at Australian Apronmakers…
Must have one! I just sent you an email per instructions. I still want a singlet though. Evil aren’t I? Yes, Bonny’s 62nd bithday – haven’t decided what I’m gonna do to celebrate, probably in a small way, but meaningful to me and Bon’s spirit.
I want one!!
Gracias Deborah cuando tenga ese delantal en mi poder vos vas a ser la primera persona a la quien cocine y bueno lo vamos a invitar a lucas tambien si estas de acuerdo ….gracias abrazos a todos feliz cumple Bonny

I’m sure el pastel turned out great, but I’ve got to believe todos (comida y otherwise) es mejor con the apron. As you would say if you were in my part of the world, abrazos de California.

Pablo, no te preocupes como su English, comprendemos tu mensaje! Sabemos que tu love Bon! Lo siento que mi espanol no es mejor. Tu ingles es mas mejor que mi espanol, no?
Back In (the) Black (Market), eh.
how amusing, Mickie…
“A Whole Lotta” kitchen/bedroom/etc. opportunities will be missed now that the apron isn’t available, but you’ve got to respect Bon’s family for sure.
Rock on Bon! 😛
SEEMS IRONIC THAT LUCAS “DID THE RIGHT THING”……… WHEN THE SCOTT FAMILY REQUESTED HE DID NOT PROCEED WITH THE APRONS…
BUT WHEN THE “FREMANTLE HERALD” REQUESTED THE SCOTT FAMILY TO MAKE CONTACT IN REGARDS TO ME…. THE SCOTT FAMILY “””DID NOT DO THE RIGHT THING”””
MAKE THE APRONS I SAY!!!
P.S— TO ANY OF THE SCOTTS WHO READ THIS….
LOOK AROUND YOU… AS EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT ME NOW!!!
