During a conversation with Galaxy 107 FM, original AC/DC singer Dave Evans talked about being copied by former AC/DC singer, Bon Scott, after he was replaced in 1974.
“You’ve gotta remember that Bon Scott did a lot of the songs that I already did – like ‘Baby, Please Don’t Go,’ we already did that.
“That’s the song that I got Angus [Young] up, on my shoulders, and, of course, he used to watch us doing our show, so he copied that.
“I understand that he copied what I was doing. And the songs too, and re-recorded them and re-wrote the lyrics to some of the songs that I had already put down.
“But he was told to do that. I know that he was under instructions to do this, so I don’t really hold it against Bon Scott for that because when he joined the band, he was washed up at the time, and he got a great chance to do something, and he did too.
“He did a great job, but his lifestyle just let him down.”
