Roundtable Review of Let There Be Rock-The Story of AC/DC Biography eviewed By Tracy Farnsworth Perhaps the most personal and involving biography I've come across in some time, AC/DC: LET THERE BE ROCK delves into the renowned rock band AC/DC. Susan Masino brings an emotional feel to the book that draws the reader in from the first sentence. This book is a must-read for any music lover, especially those familiar with AC/DC. It is hard to think that there may be people out there who are unfamiliar with AC/DC, but just in case, I'll offer a summation. AC/DC are a group from the 70's forward who came from Australia. Their loud guitar riffs matched lead singer Bon Scott's perfectly. After Bon Scott died, Brian Johnson would take over as lead singer and the band continued their climb up the charts. Their albums are a staple in my household. The book covers every aspect of the band's history. From the members' childhoods to how the band really got its name, there are jewels of details popping up on every page. Some tidbits are common and others may surprise you. What the book never does is bog the reader down in overplayed information. Everything seems fresh and new. Kudos to Susan Masino for that! Also included is a lengthy discography that will appeal to both new fans and long-established fans. AC/DC: LET THERE BE ROCK is one for the keeper shelf. With great sections of photographs included, there is a lot to experience. With Christmas right around the corner, this is a perfect gift for both young and old.
