AC/DC "High-Voltage Rock ’N’ Roll The Ultimate Illustrated History" Book Due October 15th
Available from Voyageur Press, “AC/DC: High-Voltage Rock ‘N’ Roll: The Ultimate Illustrated History” by Phil Sutcliffe follows the band from its roots in Sydney, Australia, to its most recent releases and sold-out world tours. No stone is left unturned, from the band’s formation and early gigs on the club circuit Down Under, to the 1980 death of singer Bon Scott and ultimately astounding worldwide success. Jam-packed with more than 400 illustrations—from handbills, posters, backstage passes, and vinyl from around the globe, as well as rare candid and performance photography—this massive contribution to the AC/DC library gives fans a all-access visual tour through almost four decades of unadulterated rock mastery. Additionally, sidebars and essays from top rock scribes examine all studio releases, document the band’s numerous personnel changes, and delve into the guitar gear of the Young brothers, while musicians past and present comment and reflect on the band’s lasting influence.
Complete with a specially commissioned band history and discography, an afterword from Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott, and a complete index, this book brings fans as close to the band as possible without a ticket.
For those who can’t get enough of the boys from Sydney, AC/DC: High-Voltage Rock ‘n’ Roll salutes you!
