    Quick Read while you're on the Highway to ...

    Fun dialog about the transition of the Young boys from high school drop-outs to notorious stardom to the near present (late '90s). Focus is on Macolm and Angus and Bon and Brian. Not much on the bass and drummers. Recounts antics at gigs and the history of their many tours and album productions. Paints the boys as straightout lovers of R&R, drugs and alcohol didn't play well with them except for Bon who died from the affects of alcohol. This book has a lot of newspaper and tabloid references which flavor it with news reports and critics reviews and add to the authors chronological pace. As I said, it's a quick read. Buy this for fun, I laughed many times. This book may surprise you. I was expecting gutter clutter but AC/DC doesn't destroy, it just lives rock and roll.
