AC/DC by Ethan Schlesinger

What chance does a band have to succeed when one of its premiere musicians wears a costume? A 100 percent chance if the musician is Angus Young! Malcolm Young, Cliff Williams, Phil Rudd, and first Bon Scott and then Brian Johnson found themselves sometimes overshadowed by a 5'2" powerhouse-Angus Young-dressed in a school uniform that became his signature. But they didn't complain.

AC/DC tells the story of the group's sometimes rocky road to legend status. It's not easy to become a rock superstar, and it's even harder to become a rock legend. But the Australian group AC/DC found the key to success in the music world, and they have been a driving force in rock music for more than thirty years. Bon's death and personnel changes challenged the group, but the other band members rose above the difficulties to become true rock legends.
