The wild frontman for AC/DC, as his friends and loved ones knew him

Live Wire is a revealing portrait of Bon Scott, told by three of the people who knew him best. John Darcy was Bon's roadie and mate. Gabby is Darce's wife and was a close friend of Bon's. And Mary Renshaw was—as AC/DC's former bass player Mark Evans called her—Bon's soulmate and companion. As Bon said, it's a long way to the top. And Mary, Darce, and Gabby were with him every step of the way. They lived with him, they loved him, and this is how they remember him.
