Bon the best by a long way - Brian fine rock vocalist but o a lower rung

Bon the best front man - a lizard who would seduce the front row - Brian would vomit on them.

Bon best all the way

Sorry I personally like Brian Johnson's voice better, (He has 9 octaves in his voice) but I think that Bon Scott was a better songwriter.

I like Bon better, but Brian has done extremely well to fill his shoes. Tough one.

Both have a lot of respect for each other, especially the respect Brian had for Bon, but Bon told Angus and Malcolm that if anything happened to him that they should hire Brian as the lead obviously Bon respected him.

I agree, hard decison. I started by saying Bon all the way, but then instantly reconsidering. It's messed up because AC/DC was destined to Live Forever. Rock And Roll!!!!!!

Back In Black was incredible. Black Ice is pretty good too.

Yeah, true. What about Let There Be Rock, Powerage, High Voltage, mighty Highway to Hell...? Bon is one of the most charismatic rock icons ever and clearely better. Anyway great, great thanks also to Brian for everything.

Bon best hands down... Brian does great job, as long as he doesn't try too sing Bon's songs. Bon was a singer fast or slow, Brian just a good screamer. Don't take me wrong, AC/DC still my number 1 band period. Shoot to thrill and Rock n Roll train my two fav's, Bon's are too many to list :)
