Crikey! Rolling Stone!

The July 2008, Aussie issue of Rolling Stone Magazine contains a feature on the Bon Scott Project, and some quotes from my “At the Cemetery” publication.

Which reminds me, I haven’t featured “At the Cemetery” on the blog yet. Will do so tomorrow… (it’s a little book with a hand-printed cover available at the exhibition, and maybe soon, online!)

Fireside yarns from a laid-back Fan

Just don’t call me a “die-hard”, OK!

Cos I’ll take you to task live on radio (albeit in my own rather gentle way) as I did in this roooooolly laaaaaid baaaaack interview with Shamin from 2ser Radio Programme “The Fourth Estate”.

Sheesh, it sounds like we’re yarning over the first cup of coffee of the day – or rather, mine hasn’t quite arrived yet, I’m on half-speed but still trying to sound intelligent.

Have I become so confident in my new-found fandom that I’ve hit a plateau of complacency?

If you haven’t already seen the artworks in the Bon Scott Project Exhibition at Fremantle Arts Centre, the ones I refer to in this interview are Nat Paton’s self portrait, Stuart Bailey’s Merchandise Stall, and Cecilia Fogelberg’s little soft sculpture of Bon.

Listen to the interview here [mp3 file, 6mb, 6 min]

Phew, I think that’s nearly all the media coverage so far. There are a few more trickling through, notably a TV interview Katie Dyer and I did on Channel V. I’ll keep youse posted, when I next get outta bed…

The Age Shall Not Weary Him…

(Apologies for the terrible pun.) Rock-guru Patrick Donovan has written about Bon Scott, and this humble lil blog, in the Age Newspaper today. (Thanks Andrew for the heads-up!)

Read his article here.

That amazing photo above is by Rennie Ellis, a legendary Aussie photographer. Look at the adoration on the faces of those cuties in the front row!

I’ll be posting up some more shots from the Rennie Ellis archive soon. They are amazing, and most of them haven’t been published before! Watch this space.

PS: here’s a scan of the article as it appeared in the real newspaper (Thanks Gabby n Darcy for sending it thru!)
