Slow Leak…

bill leak To the literally dozens of people who sent me email and text message heads-up about the “Bill Leak Paints Bon” show on ABC TV tonight, a thousand thanks! It’s great to know you’re all looking out for me!

But you know what? I turned on the telly at five to eight, and there was no reception. Sigh. Something’s wrong with the antenna, but I can’t work it out. I tried the thing with the coat hanger connected to the back of the TV but to no avail. (It’s been years since I cared enough about a TV programme to do that!)

So I’ve been hanging out waiting for the ABC to vodcast it, but it’s still not on their site yet.

Anyone watch it and have any thoughts, while I continue waiting?

  • I SEEM TO BE THE ONLY PERSON STILL POSTING ON YOUR BLOG LUCAS;
    IM STARTING TO THINK YOUR BLOG MAY HAVE STEPPED ON A FEW TOES…

    FOR ME I REALLY ENJOYED THE START OF THE PROGRAM…
    HOW BILL STATED HE WOULD NORMALLY MEET UP WITH THE INTENDED PERSON HE PLANNED TO PORTRAIT IN ORDER TO GET A FEELING OF WHO THEY WERE…
    BUT WITH BON; ALL HE HAD TO GO ON WERE SOME OF HIS OLD MATES… AND ONE FAN.

    BUT THEN AS IT WENT I FOUND THEY SEEMED TO CONCENTRATE ON THE SEEDIER SIDE OF MY FATHER…
    DONT GET ME WRONG THOUGH AS I DID LIKE THE OVERALL EFFORT; IT WAS JUST THINGS LIKE WHEN THEY REPEATED THINGS FROM HIS LETTERS THEY USED QUOTES THAT WERE ONLY EVER… SUPPOSED TO BE FOR THE RECIPIENT…
    I TOO ENJOY HAVING ACCESS TO THOSE WRITINGS BUT IM NOT SURE IF BON REAL MATES WOULD LIKE SEEING THEM SPLATTERED ACROSS THE NATION AT 8PM…

    PERHAPS BON WAS TOO GOOD AT PLAYING “THE BAD ASSED ROCKER”… BUT TRULY YOU WONT GET TO THE HEIGHTS HE DID IF YOU WERE TRULY A BAD BEHAVING PERSON…
    AND I THINK THERE WAS A SIDE TO BON THAT PERHAPS THOSE TO DATE…. WHO HAVE SPOKEN PUBLICLY; REALLY DID NOT GET TO MEET…

    FOR ME THE PAINTING WAS A SHOCKER…HAHA IF I DIDNT KNOW BETTER I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT WAS DONE AFTER A WILD NIGHT AT CHERRY ROCK BAR…HAHA

  • Some wonderful person put this up on You Tube and I watched it yesterday. It was absolutely incredible to observe his process and also to get new insights into Bon Scott’s personality. Highly recommended!
