Veteran rockers AC/DC are set to pay tribute to former lead singer Bon Scott 30 years after his death. Scott died of acute alcohol poisoning on February 19, 1980 after he passed out following a night of heavy drinking in a London nightclub. He was aged 33.

The group considered disbanding but signed current frontman Brian Johnson as Scott's replacement - and Johnson is adamant a music tribute will be in place to mark the memory of his predecessor. He tells New Zealand rock radio station Voxy, "We're trying to think of something to do that's not morbid."

"We hate it when people try to use the anniversary as a sensation-seeking thing, so we want it to be respectful. His two nephews and his brother will be in Perth, and we'll see his mum. I'm sure the fans will be out in force with Bon paraphernalia and we welcome that because he's still a part of the band, he's still a part of us."
