The definitive book on AC/DC, this edition is fully revised and updated, with two new chapters, just in time for the Australian leg of the AC/DC world tour in November. Two hundred million albums ago, AC/DC were delivering unforgettable performances on ABC TV's 'Countdown' - Bon Scott dressed as the schoolgirl from hell on one occasion, Angus Young somewhere inside a gorilla costume on another. In the 40 plus years since, the band has been the soundtrack for sexual encounters, drunken adventures, fights, weddings, births, funerals, new cars and new tattoos of literally millions of lives from Brussels to Brisbane, Montreal to Manchester and all points between. Not only did the band manage to emerge from Bon's tragic death in 1980, but in a bittersweet irony, their fortunes and status skyrocketed around the world with his replacement, Brian Johnson, and the album Back in Black. Despite all the odds, AC/DC show no sign of slowing down and are more an institution than simply a rock band. Try to imagine a world without them. 'Engleheart and Durieux tell the story ... pressing their faces as close as anyone has to the famous dome of silence that surrounds Australia's biggest rock export' The Age 'The AC/DC story has been told before ... but never as well' Classic Rock 'This is the nuts and bolts chronicle for blokes' Mojo
