The Young Brothers and Bon Scott were all born in Scotland. They formed the group after moving to Australia.
Bon Scott died on February 19, 1980 after a drinking binge the previous night. A friend named Alistair Kinnear took him home, but Scott passed out in the car. Kinnear couldn't move him, so he drove home, reclined the passenger seat, and covered Scott with a blanket. The next day, Kinnear found Scott motionless and drove to the hospital, where he was declared dead. The coroner's report stated the cause as, "Acute Alcohol Poisoning and Death By Misadventure."
Three teenagers were crushed to death at their concert in Salt Lake City, Utah on January 18, 1991, when the crowd rushed to the front to get the best seats. The band did not know of the deaths, and played on to avoid further problems. They were devastated when they found out some fans were killed.
