Former AC/DC Bassist Mark Evans Book Release

Former AC/DC bass player Mark Evans, who played with the band from 1975 through 1977, and appears on the albums “T.N.T.”, “ High Voltage”, “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap”, and “Let There Be Rock” (and the “74 Jailbreak” album) is releasing his very own memoir titled “Dirty Deeds, My Life Inside/Outside of AC/DC”. The book has already been released in Australia this August, and the North American edition of the book is slated for release in November.

The book is now available for pre-order through from Bazillion Points books

One day in 1975, 19-year-old Aussie rocker Mark Evans walked into a local bar to check out a band. Within days, he played his first show as bass player of AC/DC. A week later he was on national TV, alongside devious schoolboy Angus Young and the wild singer Bon Scott-dressed as a pigtailed, cigarette-smoking schoolgirl and waving a mallet. In the next few years Mark toured internationally, and appeared on the groundbreaking and platinum-selling AC/DC releases High Voltage, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Let There Be Rock, and the '74 Jailbreak EP.

'Dirty Deeds: My Life Inside/Outside of AC/DC' brings the gripping, laugh-out-loud tale of a band that lived fast and played harder than anyone else. The first bio by a band insider during the early years, the book details the struggles and personalities behind the rise of hard rock's most successful group; with guest spots by rock n' roll icons like George Harrison, Gene Simmons, Phil Lynott, Rose Tattoo, and members of Metallica. In his honest and revealing memoir, Mark Evans contends with life's many turns: A rough-as-nails upbringing, lucky breaks, soaring highs, and terrible personal loss and tragedy. It was a long way to the top...and he was just getting started.

"The aggressive attitude that AC/DC had towards Australian bands continued when we shifted overseas. The world's bigger bands became our new targets. Who the fuck did these pricks think they were? We saw a few of the so-called headline acts and straight away knew that we had nothing to fear."
