When I’m buying a bottle of wine, my decision is based purely on the look of the label. I would never go on a wine tasting tour but I would probably go on a wine bottle label looking tour.
I just roam down the aisles until something jumps out at me and I buy it.
So today I think I had my best ever wine bottle label moment.
Have I ever mentioned how much of a Bon Scott fan I am?
Australia, ACDC, the seventies – well you had to be there I guess. I know they went on to bigger and better things after he died and they brought in the Scot wearing the stupid cap to replace him but for me ACDC just ain’t the same without Bon.
So even though 2011 has been a pretty shit year for me, this just about evened it out. Awesome way to end the year at 5pm in a busy shopping centre on new years eve.
This was my final selection for the night
So it’s just a couple of hours now until midnight here and I’m sure when I wake up in the morning I’ll still be the same person and everything else will pretty much be the same. So I’ll end the year with a quote from Bon.
“It keeps you fit – the alcohol, nasty women, sweat on stage, bad food – it’s all very good for you.”
— Bon Scott (when asked about touring)
He was a funny little guy but he sure did have charisma. I think I’ve said before that I would have tapped that nasty boy but of course I was only 12 years old back then.
Happy New year people be you family, in the flesh friends or internet friends. I love you all.
