Dave Evans originally arrived in Australia from Carmarthen Wales, aged five, and settled in North Queensland with his family. After forming his first band in session in charters towers when he was seventeen he moved to Sydney, where he formed a band (no name yet!) with Malcolm Young, Colin Burgess and Larry Van Kriedt - a week later Malcolms younger brother Angus joined. Malcolm and Anguss sister-in-law Sandra came up with the name AC/DC - to signify power and energy - and so one of the greatest rock and roll bands ever was born.
After parting ways with AC/DC, Dave Evans moved to Newcastle just north of Sydney and joined up and coming hard rock outfit Rabbit in early 1975. Rabbit were already the number one rock band in Newcastle and the surrounding area and Dave had seem the performing at Chequers Nightclub in Sydney and was impressed with their confronting stage presence.
Rabbit, originally "The Cherries", was an Australian hard rock band from Newcastle, Australia. The band was formed in 1973 by Mark Tinson (guitar, vocals), Phil Screen (drums) and Jim Porteus (bass). Vocalist Greg Douglas joined in 1974 and was replaced in October of that year by Dave Evans, formerly of AC/DC. The band played a mixture of originals and covers by artists such as Alice Cooper, The Who and The Sweet. Two early singles were followed up by a self-titled album in 1975. David Hinds joined as rhythm guitarist in 1976.
The band was described as frenetic and violently hedonistic, and their second album "Too Much Rock n Roll" was released in October, 1976 after the release of another two singles. Tinson and Screen then left the band. Barry Lytton joined as drummer and Tinson was not replaced.
A version of The Raiders' "Let Me" appeared as a single in early 1977. Rabbit split up that same year when both Evans and Porteus left. Tinson, Porteus and Screen then formed Heroes who released an album in 1980. Hinds joined Finch. Tinson and Screen also worked together in Swanee and The Tex Pistols. Dave Evans went on to a string of other bands
