Abstract:

From their formation in Sydney, Australia in 1973 by brothers Angus and Malcolm Young, AC/DC have made the most visceral and single-minded rock, and it has served them well, with more than 200 million records sold. The basic blueprint that AC/DC laid down on their early albums with Bon Scott-hard, no-nonsense, riff-driven rock-n-roll has sustained them all the way through to their latest album, 2014's Rock Or Bust. Angus and Malcolm held AC/DC together after the death of singer Bon Scott in 1980. And now, so many years later, even without Malcolm around, Angus doesn't look like he's about to give up on the band. Illustrated with rare and unseen photographs, this handsome biography from an acclaimed rock biographer is a fitting salute to rock's royal family.
