Also, make a Facebook group. (you might need someone to do it for you) For some reason some ***** lap that shit up. The thing you've got going for you is AC/DC fans enthusiasm, so the more enthusiasm you show for it, the more excitement you'll generate from them. Imagine 10,000 fans of The Deece marching on Overhill to see a blue plaque.

Well I meant someone who doesn't keep a secret facebook account which is the only explanation to why I've not been added.

I fucking HATE facebook. The only reason I've got an account is because my Dad was ill in hospital and the only way my cousins would communicate was by facebook. Honestly! Fucking facebook! So I played ball, now I can't get rid of the fuckers and all these people I thought I'd left for dead are trying to 'add me as a friend'. It's a nightmare.

I realize I'm probably over-simplifying things, but couldn't you just NOT GO TO FACEBOOK?

Do you wanna do it, NWoD? That way you'll definitely have to be there for the unveiling with Angus and Malcolm.

I've joined. There seems to be approx a million Bon Scott Facebook pages - is there a quick and easy way to spam them with a link to the memorial group?

I haven't a clue. I HATE facebook. I don't find it easy to use.

I'm totally with you on Facebook and what a chore and a load of bullshit it is. My mum said recently 'now you're on facebook, we can keep in contact regularly' - I mean, what about letters mum? What about the postal servive? What about a fucking phone mum? What about email? No, it's come down to fucking Facebook for my mum to communicate to me after 28 years. Shoop de woop. Even then she just tries to superpoke me.

Oh I've just added myself. You should get a decent description of the plaque, sort of explain that you want the council to get a plaque done, the address and that the members who join really need to email that address. Perhaps a picture of the place too or most people will just cruise on by. Tell them you're going to melt down thousands of metal records that don't feature Bon Scott on and make them into a vinyl statue.

If we email that address what are we supposed to put? Full details of where we want the plaque or just that we want to nominate Bonn Scott?

Um... I sent a longish email nominating him a while back. They're a bit vague about how much detail each email needs... I imagine once Bon Scott's on their radar every subsequent Bon Scott vote goes in the hat.

Cool, just sent them an email with a brief summary of what we're after and why. I'll see if I can drum up any further support from my metal minded friends and colleagues.

Natch I am in and have joined the facebook group accordingly.

Incidentally a bit of trivia for you - Gary Holton, the guy who played the West Ham supporting Wayne from Auf Wiedersehen Pet was offered the job of front man of AC/DC after Bon's death, but turned it down as he thought it would get him back onto the smack. Silly boy thought acting would keep him clean - it didn't and he died from an OD.

We should perhaps compose some copypasta on the facebook group and encourage people to use that.

You realise also BM that if this works out it will be the second internet campaign you've pulled off for great justice?

It's almost up there with the 4chan rigging of the time person of the year vote which has been entertaining me recently.

I bulked that up a bit Barry with a pre-written letter. Adjust until you are content.

Thank you for making your nomination for a blue plaque. You won't have to do anything further regarding the nomination.
The short list of nominations will be available on the Southwark website later on in the year.
Thank you again for taking the time out to make your nomination.

Awesome.

Speaking of AC/DC, I had a ticket to go and see them last night, but didn't bother in the end. Let my friend's wife have it instead.

I'll never forget the look on my neighbour's son's face when I gave him my tickets for their show at the Astoria. That must've been back in feb '79.
I wouldn't have minded going but I had a bit of work to do on the car so had to let it pass.

I would have gone if it was a standing ticket, but being seated up in the rafters just sounded like an exercise in frustration.

The campaign got a mention in the AC/DC article in the back pages of today's Time Out!

Woot!

I'm awaiting the inevitable torrent of emails with bated breath.
