Bon Scott (9 July 1946 – 19 February 1980) was born in Forfar and brought up in Kirriemuir, Scotland, before moving to Melbourne, Australia, with his family in 1952 at the age of six.
New Year’s Eve and Times Square. Movies and popcorn. The moon and stars. Baseball and peanuts. Shrimp and grits (for those folks wishing they were in the Lowcountry today).

I bring this up on this Tuesday because the first thing off the MrSEC.com iPod this morning is probably the single greatest example of hard rock guitars mixed with wailing pipes. And if you’re thinking a Scottish band paired the two sounds you’ll have to guess again. Credit the Australian band AC/DC for 1975′s “It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘N’ Roll).”
“Gettin’ old. Gettin’ gray. Gettin’ ripped off. Underpaid. Gettin’ sold, secondhand. That’s how it goes playin’ in a band.”
Too wild for you in the AM? You can always go back and re-click yesterday’s kickoff song from Adele. Yeah, you might say the MrSEC.com iPod has an eclectic mix of songs on it. As eclectic as, say… heavy metal guitars and bagpipes.
