To say a big THANKS to all the fans we have met, photographed, or written about, photographer Bec Dagnall and I are putting on a slideshow night at the Billy Weston Pool Hall in Scarborough.

Bec and I have taken hundreds of shots during our time working on the Bon Scott Project. Only a small amount of them can be featured in the exhibition at the Fremantle Arts Centre, so we decided to bung ’em all on a DVD and beam them up on the big screen!


It’ll be a meeting of the tribes…

The details:

The Slides: running from 8pm onwards (but you can show up earlier to have drinks, the pool hall is open all day!) If you have more pictures you’d like to include in the show, email them to me [] or bring along a CD with them on the night! The whole thing will be really informal, we’ll just have the pictures on a loop, no need to sit down and politely clap or anything. But hooting, cheering, and the shouting of drinks are of course most welcome!

The Drinks: Danny from Billy Weston is providing special priced drinks!

The Address:
Billy Weston Pool and Snooker
64 Scarborough Beach Rd
(08) 9245-3939

Bec will have her snazzy camera on hand, so if you haven’t had your special Bon Scott photoshoot yet, maybe now is the time. To arrange it, call her on 0404973126 or just show up in your finest Bon regalia.

Bec the photographer picked me up at noon. As she arrived I was just putting the finishing touches on my new Bon Scott Singlet, in preparation for the big concert. My mate Hana did these great Bon Scott Bulging Crotch and Mischievous Face drawings for me, and I turned ’em into an iron-on transfer. Although there are a gazillion AC/DC shirts for sale, they all tend to be a bit “samey”. But it’s safe to say that nobody else in the world has this particular piece of merchandise yet!

Bec was taking me to Hamilton Hill, a suburb ten minutes out of Fremantle, for a photoshoot with an AC/DC family. That’s right, a whole family. This was not just one or two diehards. We’re talking twenty six fans in an extended, three generation clan, gathered together to prepare themselves for the Bon Scott statue unveiling concert. They had discovered Bec’s advert in a local milk bar, and invited her to come along and shoot their pre-concert ritual. And I was lucky enough to go along for the ride.
