In 1967 Bon Scott’s star was rising while his son was adopted out after a brief encounter with a young girl in the Victorian town of Ballarat. Dave Stevens was adopted out to a loving family in Geelong Victoria living a normal childhood while his real father was taking over the world with his band AC/DC. Dave Stevens strangely started playing the drums just as Bon had done early in his musical career but Dave and Bon soon found new callings, Dave as Bass Player and Bon Ruled the world for a time as arguably the greatest rock singer that ever lived.
From very early on Dave was obsessed with Music and worshipped the Beatles especially John Lennon and was not a huge fan of his father’s band AC/DC at that stage. A tale of two careers began with Dave growing up in the suburbs of sleepy hollow “Geelong” and Bon being worshipped all over the world while neither of the two knew they had any connection. It was not until two years after Bon’s death that Dave would find out from his long lost biological mother that Dave was, in fact, the prodigy of the legend Bon Scott.
Years past while Dave wrestled with the reality and occasional, sideways glance he would get from people who had heard the rumours. Dave was entrenched in his music and was hell-bent on making a name for himself in spite of having such famous blood line. Not until now has Dave Stevens been able to put all drama behind him and make a choice to celebrate his heritage and perform some of the classics that his famous father had written and sung that are so etched in the minds of people all over the world. Songs like “TNT.” “LET THERE BE ROCK” and “LONG WAY TO THE TOP” just to name a few.
Dave has put together a hard hitting rock show laced with hits from the AC/DC “Bon years” along with some tunes that helped shaped the son of Bon Scott. A ninety-minute show of hit after hit and stories that few have ever heard, relating to what it was like to be the son of a world-famous superstar, after the fact. Dave will also share some stories that were told to him by close friends of Bon’s who have to now befriend Dave as they see the similarities between the two that leave no doubt that the bloodline did not finish on a fateful day in London. The aptly named show “If You want Blood” is a ninety-minute power charged punch you in the face experience that will have you coming back for more!
