Only hardcore AC/DC fans know that Bon Scott isn’t the band’s first vocalist and that they once followed the glam rock trend. Sadly, it didn’t work out for them and their frontman back then, Dave Evans, was dismissed because he wouldn’t fit their style.
Anyway, you can see them in this rare footage performing their debut single “Can I Sit Next To You Girl” written by Malcolm and Angus Young. It was released only in Australia in 1974 but it didn’t crack the Top 10.
“When our single (‘Can I Sit Next to You Girl?’) was released, we had our third bass player, third drummer, and third manager. And I didn’t get on with those guys. I didn’t know them. They were from Melbourne, we were a Sydney band. And it was morphing into something I didn’t like.” – Dave Evans
So it’s no surprise that they sounded very different from what we’re used to hearing when it comes to AC/DC. But you know what they say, everyone has to start somewhere and it’s the same for these hard-rocking boys from Australia.
