From his early days with The Valentines, through to the rise of AC/DC, Live Wire gives us the real story of what it was like to be Bon Scott's friend, tour with him, and be part of the close-knit world out of which one of biggest bands of all time emerged. With Bon, there was always sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll, but this deeply personal insight also shows the humor, intelligence, and warmth of the man. From dilapidated apartments in inner Melbourne, through to the legendary early years of AC/DC, Live Wire is a revealing portrait of Bon, told by three of the people who knew him best. John Darcy was Bon's roadie and mate. Gabby is Darce's wife and was a close friend of Bon's. And Mary Renshaw was—as AC/DC's former bass player Mark Evans called her—Bon's soulmate and companion. As Bon said, it's a long way to the top. And Mary, Darce, and Gabby were with him every step of the way. They lived with him, they loved him, and this is how they remember him.
