On February 19, 1980, Bon Scott was drinking heavily at the London club Music Machine (now called KOKO). He was placed in a Renault 5 (a supermini car) by his acquaintance, Alistair Kinnear, at this address.
The next afternoon, Kinnear found a lifeless Scott in the car and alerted the authorities. He was brought to King's College Hospital in Camberwell where he was pronounced DOA. Pulmonary aspiration of vomit was the cause of Scott's death, and the official report listed "acute alcohol poisoning" and "death by misadventure."
After Scott's death, the band's next album was Back in Black. The album has sold 50 million copies to date, making it the 2nd highest-selling album of all time.
