State Library of Western Australia Acquires Letter by Former AC/DC Lead Singer Bon Scott
From The West Australian:
The identity of the bidder who paid $14,000 at a US auction for a letter written by former AC/DC frontman Bon Scott has been revealed.
The three-page letter — written two years before his death to former girlfriend Valerie while the band was touring the US in 1978 — was auctioned in Los Angeles earlier this year.
The letter was written on Hilton stationary while AC/DC were in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It is printed in capital letters, with several spelling mistakes and the use of ampersands rather than the word “and”.
