AC/DC : maximum rock & roll

You know the library is a cool place when they have books like AC/DC : maximum rock & roll!

Authors ... well, music journalists, Murrary Engleheart and Arnaud Durieux write from personal experience with the band as well as information from more than 1300 interviews. This is the first complete story of AC/DC and includes trvia, anecdotes, answers to well known myths, and never-before-seen photos to create the ultimate portrait of the ultimate rock band.

AC/DC was started by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young in Sydney, Australia and debuted their first album in 1975. From the tragic death of frontman Bon Scott, through their height of popularity in the 1980s, up to an album in 2000 this book has it all. It includes a discography of albums, compilations, singles of interest, videos, and an index. This was one of the first major rock bands that I listened to in my youth (and still do) and their sound had a major impact on my music choices since then!

To make reading this massive book even more enjoyable don’t forget to check out Brand Library’s CD collection including several of AC/DC’s best albums!
