BON SCOTT's Mother Dies At 94

Isa Scott, the mother of legendary AC/DC singer Bon Scott, died in Western Australia at the age of 94.

Born Isabelle Cunningham Mitchell, Isa along with her husband, Charles (Chick) Scott emigrated to Melbourne, Australia in 1952 with their then two sons, Ronald Belford (Bon) Scott (born 1946) and the younger Derek Scott (born 1949). It is from Western Australia that Bon Scott began his musical career as a member of the bands THE SPEKTORS and THE VALENTINES. Following some time with Sydney-based FRATERNITY (later relocating to Adelaide), Bon was introduced to Malcolm and Angus Young who at the time were looking for a new lead singer for their band AC/DC.

Throughout her life Isa Scott remained a private woman, shying away from the limelight associated with her sons involvement in AC/DC. She rarely spoke of Bon and AC/DC giving only a handful of interviews. Isa was a fan of the band, attending Perth AC/DC concerts in recent years whenever possible.
