Highway to Hell, Wines'n'Roses
Some people say that “Highway To Hell” was the name by which Canning Highway in Australia was known, which started where Bon Scott lived and finished at a bar called The Raffles, which was a famous rock’n’roll place in the 70s. As the road gets near the bar it starts to go noticeably downhill. So many people died at the crossroads that was at the top of the hill that it was called “Highway to Hell”.
But that didn’t stop Bon Scott and his mates from religiously taking the road every night to drink and listen to rock music. After six records, “Highway To Hell” was the first song to make the hitlist in the USA, being Bon Scott’s last song as lead singer as he died in 1980.
