Publisher's Summary

Over three decades and more than 150 million albums, AC/DC has established itself as much more than just a great rock band. For millions of fans spanning several generations across the world, they are an ear-bleedingly loud, sweat-soaked religion, courtesy of such classic albums as Highway to Hell and Back in Black. Now, in a book of astonishing breadth and scope, comes, for the very first time, the complete story of AC/DC. Everything you ever wanted to know and plenty more you never dreamt of is all here, the ultimate balls-out adventure, laced with sex, drunken escapades, and brawls.

It's a journey that started in the suburban Sydney, Australia, bedrooms of brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, boys who could wreak havoc with their guitars. Over their power chords were the lyrics and voice of Bon Scott, who would lead them higher and higher-until his tragic death in 1980. The bittersweet irony after his death was that not only did the Youngs manage to hold together without him, but the band's fortunes and status skyrocketed with his replacement, Brian Johnson, and the album Back in Black.

Five long years in the making, AC/DC: Maximum Rock & Roll is sourced from more than 1,300 interviews the band has given over the past thirty years combined with in excess of 75 of the authors' own interviews with those who worked with AC/DC - both in the studio and on the road - many of whom have never spoken about the band publicly.

    "Long but worth it."

    A true testament of how four boys, Malcolm, Angus, Phil and Bon took on the world in their own way and left it screaming for more. This is a great book that is well overdue. A little too long due to the many, many, many show stories that could have been cut down, this made it a bit much at times but the shear story does keep you engaged. A great listen even if you aren't a fan of the band.

    "What a fan-bloody-tastic listen..."

    I have just finished this title and am very glad I purchased it. Having to date been an 'on the fence' ACDC fan, not an obsessive one, I wasn't sure if I should listen to this or not. So glad I did! I didn't realise how much the boys were 'before their time'. How driven and focused (Malcolm and Angus) had been from their youth towards their goal of creating 'real rock'. The behind the scenes info and background on their ups and downs, only makes you realise how incredibly hard they worked for their sucess, with many losses on the way. RIP Bon Scott! What a talent you were (and remain). I have been busy buying up a few more of the back cataloge albums that I didn't have, and enjoying the tracks with a new appreciation, knowing the the stories behind the songs now. If you like rock music, you need to hear this one!! You will only increase your respect for this fan-bloody-tastic band.

    "Boring and uninteresting"

    This book is boring and lacks any kind of interest, the problem lies in two areas firstly it would be a great improvement if the narrator could actually speak english and secondly the lead into the book is boring and lacks any form of interest to fans of such an iconic rock band
