Description: This is where AC/DC lead singer and rock legend Bon Scott was found unconscious after a night's heavy drinking on the night of February 19th 1980.

After leaving London club the Music Machine at 3am, Alisdair Kinnear drove Bon back to his flat here at Ashley Court but upon arrival, he couldn't move Bon so he left him in the car.

Almost correct Description. Bon lived in Ashley Court which is still there south off of Victoria street just west of Westminster Cathedral. He and Kinnear had been to a party on the 18th and Kinnear drove him back home to Ashley court but by that time Scott had passed out and Kinnear couldnt lift him out of his car, so Kinnear took him back to Overhill Road in East Dulwich and had the same problem there so left him in his car to sleep it off. Scott was found on the 19th in the evening,dead. (timmo)

There is a rare AC/DC song called Carry Me Home which is nearly an exact description of Bons last night alive, the simple truth is Bon knew he was going to die this way (vinnie)

what wonderful friends he had, leaving him unconscious and alone in a car on a freezing night. taken way too soon, he still had so much left to give. (Misty)

R.I.P. Bon. Im pretty sure he went out drinking on the 18th, and was found dead on the 19th. Not the 19th and 20th as it says here. Pic of this location: http://www.crabsodyinblue.com/acdcbon190280.htm (sapphire)
