Overview

A tour through the formative years of Australia’s rock scene adds to the detailed account of AC/DC’s rise to fame in this definitive biography of front man Bon Scott. Following the singer from his reluctant teen pop star career to his shocking death in 1980, the book traces the band’s trajectory through the life of their original front man. Littered throughout are stories of drunken escapades, throngs of women, and life on the road that prove that the term “sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll” is much more than merely a catchphrase. The book features interviews and rare photographs and covers the period when Scott’s ribald lyrics and charismatic stage presence combined with the riffing of guitarists Angus Young and Malcolm Young to define a new, highly influential brand of rock music.

Una gira por los años formativos del mundo del rock en Australia ensalsa la historia detallada del camino a la fama del grupo AC/DC en esta biografía definitiva de su líder Bon Scott. Siguiendo al cantante desde su renuente carrera adolescente como estrella de música pop hasta su muerte sorprendente en 1980, el libro examina la trayectoria del grupo a través de la vida de su líder original. A lo largo del relato se incluyen historias sobre aventuras borrachas, multitudes de mujeres y tiempo pasado de gira que demuestran que la frase “sexo, drogas y rock and roll” es mucho más que un simple eslogan. El libro provee entrevistas y fotografías raras y describe la época en la que la letra procaz y la presencia escénica de Scott fueron combinadas con los riff de guitarra de Angus Young y Malcolm Young para crear un nuevo estilo influyente de música rock.
