9780061133923: AC/DC: Maximum Rock & Roll: The Ultimate Story of the World's Greatest Rock-And-Roll Band

AC/DC are without doubt one of the world’s biggest bands. Their appeal lies in blending the fierce energy and all-out guns-blazing attack of heavy metal with the bluesy groove and infectious boogie of the Stones.

In 2013 it will be 40 years since AC/DC were founded, and they’re still rocking, still hitting the road, and still selling out stadiums, while their back catalogue – boasting classic albums like Back in Black and Highway to Hell – continues to dominate the airtime of radio stations and pub juke boxes the world over.

Acclaimed by both fans and critics, this is the definitive account of the world’s greatest rock and roll band, presenting the whole story –from humble beginnings in Australia, through the sudden death of founding member Bon Scott and his replacement with Geordie singer Brian Johnson, a string of peerless albums in the ’70s and early ’80s, and adrenalin-soaked live performances.

AC/DC: Maximum Rock & Roll is a must-have for anyone who wants to reacquaint themselves with the world’s greatest rock & roll band, and the perfect starting place for those ‘about to rock…’

Product Description:

Who knew when the Young family emigrated from Glasgow to Sydney in the early sixties that the family′s youngest lads would go on to lead one of the world′s most loved and respected rock bands? Who knew that some of their biggest fans would end up being their own heroes, The Rolling Stones? That streets in Melbourne and Madrid would be officially named in their honour? That they would play to two million people at a single concert in Moscow? For the first time, Murray Engleheart along with Arnaud Durieux tells the full story of Australia′s greatest and loudest rock n′ roll export. Not only did they manage to emerge from the tragic death of legendary singer, Bon Scott in 1980, but, in a bitter-sweet irony, the band′s fortunes and status skyrocketed around the world with Scott′s replacement, Brian Johnson and the album, Back in Black. More than 25 years on, AC/DC show no sign of slowing down and are more an institution than simply a rock band.

Review:

"Interesting unknown facts and meticulous research makes this the best book yet on the subject." (Amazon)

"Five years in the making, journalist Engleheart and leading AC/DC expert Durieux have crafted the definitive biography. So faithful to the spirit of the band it could leave readers' ears ringing, this book is required reading for any serious fan of rock music." (Publishers Weekly)
