Brian is the best replacement AC/DC could have found for Bon. He is incredible in his own right. That being said, no one can ever replace Bon. I think he was the greatest frontman of all time.

Brian Johnson forever - nothing against celebrating mythical frontmen but anybody saying Bon Scott was the better frontman just ain't got no idea!'Back in Black' was THE statement a band could make after the demise of one of its members and without Brian Johnson the band could never have pulled off what they did post-1980, becoming THE most popular Rockband ever; heck, the band wouldn't even still be around had Bon Scott remained frontman.

Ya know I grew up listening to Brian Johnson and I think he is the best, but the more I listen to and watch Bon Scott on video I like him more and more. I think he was a bad ass. However I don't think AC/DC would be the band it is today without Brian. They both are awesome but I think Brian edges Bon out by a bit.

Bon Scott...Bon Scott...Bon Scott. It can't be said enough. Obviously Johnson is the choice of people today but most likely because the people commenting on the subject never saw Bon, not that I have, but in his hey-day he was the $*IT. As for him not putting out something as big as back in black, well you try dying at the height of your career. How does everyone know that Bon Scott wasn't going to go on and make the best album in heavy metal history???...As a closing statement, Anything Bon Scott ever made is about ten steps above "Fly on the Wall."

I agree with that statement as well but if you want to find the real brain and heart behind the band it would have to be Malcom Young who's always been able to back up the entire band while Angus danced around the stage and around the fretboard. So without Angus "and" Malcom the band would be nowhere.

Bon bought AC/DC's sound to the world and shook the rafters of many a bar before Brian took it to the stadium. As stated earlier it's hard to judge when we only got 5 or so good years from Bon and a good 25 from Johno.. They both rock as does ACA DACA but there can only be one BON RIP from your spiritual home in Sydney..Riding on the Highway!

thats a cruel question,*cries* i think that is unfair to ask because they are just as good as each other...Bon rocked and was
absolutely fantastic and brian has done the same and kept the band going so... u know if we didnt have brian we wouldnt have AC/DC still going now "(if that makes any sense at all )please dont yell at me....
