Monochrome Monday (homage)

Q.   Who would have thought that putting bagpipes with electric guitars would result in a rock hit?

A.   Ronald Belford "Bon" Scott (RIP) and his fellow Scottish expats, Angus and Malcolm Young of the Oz band AC/DC, when they recorded "It's a Long Way to Top (If You Want to Rock n Roll)" 36 years ago.
What a crazy journey from Sctotland to Freemantle Prison to international fame and then back to "Freo" cast in bronze. Not many rockers can claim that. That's Bon above, still attracting the birds in Freo, 30 years after his death.

"Ridin' down the highway 
Goin' to a show 
Stop in all the by-ways 
Playin' rock 'n' roll 
Gettin' robbed 
Gettin' stoned 
Gettin' beat up 
Broken boned 
Gettin' had 
Gettin' took 
I tell you folks 
It's harder than it looks"
from AC/DC "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Want to Rock n Roll)" 1976
