Watch Original AC/DC Singer DAVE EVANS Perform 'T.N.T.' On FOX SPORTS' 'Nunca Es Tarde'

Original AC/DC singer Dave Evans performed the band's classic song "T.N.T." on the "Nunca Es Tarde" show, which airs on the Fox Sports channel in Latin America. Video footage of his appearance can be seen below.

Dave recorded AC/DC's first two singles, "Can I Sit Next To You Girl" and "Baby Please Don't Go". But in October 1974, less than a year after AC/DC's first gig, Evans was out of the band.

"A lot happened in that time," Evans told Wales Online. "We had our first record, our first gigs, our first tour, three bass players, we played some of the biggest venues in Australia. It was an amazing time.

"We were always very ambitious. When you're young, you want to show the world what you've got. We were doing shows, but, basically, we weren't getting paid. The management had money but we were basically starving, so one night we'd had a few drinks and I said my piece and it all kicked off.

"I said, 'That's it, I quit.' I finished the rest of the tour and then we had a meeting where it was decided that I was out. I said 'fine' and that was that. I was no longer in AC/DC."

Evans was replaced later in 1974 by Bon Scott, who sang on AC/DC's first six studio albums and became a legend himself after his death in 1980.

Evans said he "never had a problem with Bon," adding, "He had an opportunity to take my place and become the singer for AC/DC. I would have done the same thing. Bon was a rock and roller and as hard as me... He was quite a few years older than me but we grew up tough and did the hard knocks."

Evans told Wales Online that his former bandmates have not acknowledged his role in AC/DC's early history, saying, "They like to pretend in interviews that Bon Scott was there from the very beginning. The truth of the matter is that a lot went on before Bon became involved — in fact, the band had already got through two bass players, three drummers and a handful of managers by that point... all the stuff [Bon would] later do onstage with AC/DC, like taking off his shirt and carrying Angus around on his shoulders, was nicked off me."
