No. 6: AC/DC’s Forgotten First Singer
AC/DC are known having had two fantastic singers over their career, but did you know before Bon Scott and Brian Johnson there was another, short-lived vocalist? Dave Evans fronted the Aussie outfit for one year in 1973, releasing the single ‘Can I Sit Next To You, Girl’ before being let go due to artistic differences and clashes with management.
Needless to say, with Scott taking over the job — and Johnson several years later, after Scott’s death — AC/DC grew to become one of the best-selling rock bands of all time. Dave, ever hear of biting your tongue?
