  1. Fantastic band but after selling 200 million albums and various sell out tours I think that estimate on their wealth is a bit low.

  2. Actually Bon Scott passed away February 19, 1980, Brian was hired in April 1980, Back In b Black was released in Oct 1980.
    Malcolm passed a few years ago.
