AC/DC Bon Scott-era mobile app released

A mobile app chronicling the Bon Scott-led era of AC/DC has just been released.

The first in a series of apps produced by North American rock radio series In The Studio, “AC/DC: The Bon Scott Era” is an interactive experience chronicling the legendary band's long way to the top...narrated by Angus and Malcolm Young themselves.

In over an hour of in-depth discussion, the Young brothers take you on a journey through this classic era in the AC/DC story, from their migration to Australia in the early 1960s to the tragic death of their iconic frontman in 1980. As you progress year-by-year along a full biographical timeline, the memories and insights of the Young brothers are brought to life through rare photographs and memorabilia.

The App allows users to stream interviews as you make your way through the band’s story, listen to them sequentially in a playlist, or download them to your device for offline use.

“AC/DC: The Bon Scott Era” also features the Redbeard-produced Bonfire radio documentary, originally broadcast in 1997, an expansive quiz to test your knowledge of the band and a gallery of rare AC/DC photographs.

AC/DC recently completed recording a new album without founding member Malcolm Young, who remains in hospital to address some health issues.
