    Book with to many sections to it.

    I read the book but it was hard to follow along. There are to many sections to it so it made it hard to follow along. I really like the AC-DC part though because i think they are a awsome band. The book is manley about how bands got started and how they come up woth songs and all sorts of stuff about it. The part that I decided to write about is the AC-DC section. They started out just asking them how they got started. Then they talked about how Angus (Lead Guitar) is so small, so he needs small guitars that still look big at him. He is olnly about 5 foot tall. The next thing they talked about way when Bon Scott died they needed to find a new lead singer. They held try outs and fround Brian Jonson. When they first introduced song they got a title of a punk band, and they got upset by that. Then they got a title of a hevy metal band, they appreciated the punk rock name betterthen heavy metal. They also talked about how they got some ideas of songs. Thats about what the section was about.
