Long-Lost Song By AC/DC's Bon Scott Discovered

(Classic Rock) A long-lost song written by late AC/DC frontman Bon Scott has been discovered in Australia. The music and lyrics for the track were found by a musician who played with Scott before he joined AC/DC. And according to BB Steal singer Craig Csongrady, he's been offered the chance to record the song. Csongrady tells White Line Fever: "He had a song he wrote about a woman he was living with back then. A guy in Sydney, he's got the song and it was never recorded. Bon wrote it. "He asked me, actually, 'Would you like to try and record this.' I said, 'It'd be a bloody honour.' I'd love to do that. I don't know the name of it. It's named after his girlfriend. I was at the Bridge Hotel in Sydney and he played it on piano to me and sang it rough and showed me the lyrics. It's got 'Bon Scott' as the signature on it. It's a really old piece of paper."

Blues Legend B.B. King Dead At 89

(Classic Rock) Blues great B.B. King has died at the age of 89 after being ill for some time, it's been confirmed. His lawyer Brent Bryson reported that he died peacefully in his sleep at home in Las Vegas. Born Riley B. King in 1925, he was known as one of the Three Kings Of Blues Guitar alongside Albert King (1923-1992) and Freddie King (1934-1976). His single-string vibrato style, influenced by Blind Lemon Jefferson, T-Bone Walker and others, is said to have influenced most of the guitarists who followed him. King's career began in 1943 as a guitarist with the Famous St John's Quartet in his home state of Mississippi. He later played with Bukka White in Tennessee before starting solo work in Arkansas in 1948. He was soon a regular DJ on Tennessee radio, using the name Blues Boy, which led to his onstage moniker.

Guns N' Roses Didn't Steal 'Sweet Child O' Mine' Says McKagan

(Radio.com) A few days ago, Australian website Max TV asked whether Guns N' Roses plagiarized their 1987 classic "Sweet Child O' Mine" from an earlier song by an Australian band called Australian Crawl, "Unpublished Critics," from 1981. Radio.com spoke with former Guns bassist Duff McKagan--currently of a band called Walking Papers--and asked him about the controversy. He's denying it. Completely. "A friend of mine just sent me that video," he says, which plays excerpts of both songs. "It is pretty stunning," he admits. However, he is quick to add, "But we didn't steal it from them! I swear [puts his hand on his heart], I never heard that song until a couple of days ago." But, McKagan says, he's kind of puzzled as to why, two-and-a-half decades later, the allegations are just coming to light: "How is that [information] just coming out now?"
