AC/DC moved to Britain from Sydney in 1975, and soon set up a residency at London's Marquee Club. Their short hair (including the odd mullet), loud rock and attitude chimed well with the lingering pub rock and soon-to-be punk crowd. They weren't really a band for guitar solos, and singer Bon Scott was the original bike-riding, speed-snorting, fighting man. An ex-convict he lived life fast and short; he died in February 1980, just before BACK IN BLACK, their huge-selling album, took off and the second period of AC/DC (with Brian Johnson as lead vocalist) was ushered in. BACK IN BLACK has gone on to sell 45 million copies worldwide, and as the band have become a global phenomenon so their reclusiveness has increased. Mick Wall, the don of heavy metal writing, seeks to penetrate the wall around the Young brothers, and write the first authoritative, in-depth critical account of AC/DC.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Well written but unnecessarily harsh 6. Mai 2013
Von Burst' Bucker - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As author Mick Wall points out in the introduction, his intention was not to write yet another "puff piece" on AC/DC, and in that, he has succeeded. Wall is an excellent writer and I believe he, for the most part, has excellent taste in music but in my opinion he is FAR too dismissive of the bands' post-Bon Scott albums; even going so far as to call the "Flick of the Switch" album "disastrous." Really, Mick? That's an excellent, raw album with Brian at his crazed best; and if it was a commercial flop it probably had more to do with the fact that clueless record execs were still trying to marked the boys as a metal band instead of a rock and roll band. The general negative tone aside, this is still worth reading as an AC/DC bio told from an outsider's perspective.

Haven't yet finished the book. There is a lot of details, and I am not sure if everything is as interesting. But if you want to know a lot of AC/DC this is the book for you!

I am a fan of AC/DC and of rock bios. I'm also a fan of Mick Wall as a rock journalist. I've read this band's story by other wroters, and while the material may not be fresh and new, Wall's presentation makes it seem so. While other writers of the rock bio genre fall into the trappings of myth and sensationalism, Wall does a great job of presenting the material in a fun and enlightening way, while at the same time humanizing his subjects. The best part is that it reads like a fun conversation with a learned fellow music fan. More than worthwhile to purchase and read.

Great band but the writer, Mick Wall clearly has personal problems with members of the group especially the young brothers. The constant theme is that the Youngs are clannish and suspicious of outsiders which obviously include Mr Wall.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Britain's best rock writer on the great white shark of the music biz 24. April 2013
Von N. Page - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I've been a die-hard rock music fan since 1976. One of the first bands I ever saw live was Bon Scott and Co in a small pub in Hammersmith, west London and it was quite an experience being up that close to such a powerhouse of a band. Wth punk at its height, I saw them twice on the Powerage tour during 1978 when they would open the set with 'Riff raff', one of my all-time fave AC/DC songs - I'm somewhere down the front on that youtube footage of the band at Essex University (Colchester) on 21 October 1978, a set that was broadcast on the BBC in their 'Rock goes to college' series. The album following 'Powerage' entitled 'Let there be Rock' was probably the turning point for the band and "Whole lotta Rosie" from 'Let there be rock' used to make my all-time Top 20 rock chart on a regular basis. It probably appears in millions of other fans' charts too. I must admit to not being too keen on the Mutt Lange-produced 'Highway to Hell' and by that time (1979) I was much more into other great bands such as Priest, Kiss and Rush. To be honest with their relentless boogie onslaught AC/DC weren't the most sophisticated of bands - I had taste after all - but by that time and within just two short years AC/DC had taken themselves from relative obscurity to headliner status (Def Leppard were their support on some of those 1978 gigs). The background to just how they achieved their break-through, the terrible internal politics, the wrangling, the fights and bust-ups along the way, how the Young 'clan' rode the waves of misfortune and heartbreak, even turning them to advantage whenever somebody or something seemed poised to snatch it all away from them are detailed in this remarkable account by Mick Wall. Read this book and amuse yourself by seeking out those old clips on youtube- the band's first TV appearances playing 'High Voltage'or Bon Scott with long-hair, beard, and playing recorder in his hippy-trippy days with pre-AC/DC band Fraternity. Or worse re-visit his teeny-bopping 'Bay City Roller' band 'The Valentines'- great stuff! Wall's book focuses on the Bon Scott years necessarily - after all the band have done little since - aside from the Lange-produced 'Back in Black', one of the all-time great rock albums - and nowadays it's less about the music than the marketing, the merchandise and finding ever more inventive ways of re-cycling the back catalogue. Wall of course re-visits Bon's death - and questions at length the accepted wisdom that Scott died after choking on his vomit; he quotes eminent physicians on the risks of consuming even a small amount of alcohol with heroin in the system. (Scott's long-term girlfriend 'Silver' was a well-known dealer..). The circumstances and the build-up to the death are relayed in grim and gripping detail. The band and management bear some blame too for not having Bon chaperoned or 'watched' - the guys though were more business associates than friends and moved in different circles outside of the band. The period following Scott's death is fascinating for historians of AC/DC - how they picked themselves up and moved on, discovering Brian Johnson and hooking up with producer-extraordinaire Mutt Lange. Even Trevor Rabin gets in on the story. Wall discusses the various myths and rumours about their 1981 post-Bon Scott 'Back in Black' - the album that catapulted them to the top of the superstar first division; were most of the lyrics penned by Scott prior to his death? How much of the album was Lange-inspired? Why was Lange subsequently sacked ? The 1981 LP 'For those about to rock' and the 1982 world tour showed perhaps that the band could still cut it, but Wall is harsh on the abilities of Brian Johnson - song highlights post-Scott are few and far between in the AC/DC catalogue and it wasn't long before the new vocalist even gave up lyric-writing duties, if he ever had any. Of course it must be hard playing second-fiddle to Bon Scott's burning ever-brighter legacy, having constantly to proclaim his greatness and sing his songs. As Wall makes clear, there is no happy ending to the AC/DC story. Like the great white shark of the music world AC/DC go on " it's hungry snout pushing ever forwards". Even as the Young brothers approach old age and inevitable infirmity, the AC/DC legend is cemented with every Youtube click or CDR rip or 'Best of ' or 'Re-mastered..' sale - of course not all of the back catalogue is available to download on i-Tunes or elsewhere; the success of 2008's 'Black Ice was, Wall states, in part due to the decision not to make it available for download. But that surely can only be a matter of time as the band seek out new revenue streams. Having survived the death of Bon Scott and the utterly insurmountable and unrepeatable success of 'Back in Black', last year's 'Live at River Plate' is simply the latest leg of one long victory lap. And if as his blurb states, Mick Wall is Britains's best-known rock writer and broadcaster then this book surely cements his reputation too..
