Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen recalls taking Bon Scott to Mexican restaurant

The Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen said in an interview with that he has a beautiful friendship with AC/DC members and was the first person to take the late singer Bon Scott to an Mexican restaurant. Cheap Trick will release on April 9 their 20th studio album “Another World”.


Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen recalls taking Bon Scott to Mexican restaurant:

“I had Angus and Malcolm, and Cliff (Williams) came to my house in 1979. I was the first guy to ever take Bon Scott have Mexican food; he had a taco and Scotch. They were sweet guys. I mean, we loved them. They were just the ultimate. There’s a version of us doing ‘Johnny B. Goode’ with Robin (Zander) and Bon singing and Angus playing with us.”

“The last time I saw those guys was right before Malcolm had died,” he revealed. “I went to see them on their last show of the tour; it was in Nashville. And the friend that I flew down with and myself were the only guys they allowed backstage. I walked in, and they said, ‘Hey, Rick, you’re still living in Rockford?’ ‘Yeah, I am.’ [Laughs] They’re sweet guys.”

In an statement, singer Robin Zander talked about the band, saying:

“This band is held together by music. It’s the super glue that keeps us writing and putting records out. The reason we started the band in the first place was to tour and write songs and put records out. If all that went away, there would be no point then, would there?”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
