AC/DC : Hell Ain't a Bad Place to be, Paperback

AC/DC : Hell Ain't a Bad Place to be Paperback



Mick Wall penetrates the closed world of Aussie rock legends AC/DC. AC/DC moved to Britain from Sydney in 1975, and soon set up a residency at London's Marquee Club.

Their short hair (including the odd mullet), loud rock and attitude chimed well with the lingering pub rock and soon-to-be punk crowd.

They weren't really a band for guitar solos, and singer Bon Scott was the original bike-riding, speed-snorting, fighting man.

An ex-convict he lived life fast and short; he died in February 1980, just before BACK IN BLACK, their huge-selling album, took off and the second period of AC/DC (with Brian Johnson as lead vocalist) was ushered in.

BACK IN BLACK has gone on to sell 45 million copies worldwide, and as the band have become a global phenomenon so their reclusiveness has increased.

Mick Wall, the don of heavy metal writing, seeks to penetrate the wall around the Young brothers, and write the first authoritative, in-depth critical account of AC/DC.
