The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC is unlike any AC/DC book you've read before. Less a biography, more a critical appreciation, it tells the story of the trio through 11 classic rock songs and reveals some of the personal and creative secrets that went into their making. Important figures from AC/DC's long way to the top open up for the very first time, while unsung heroes behind the band's success are given the credit they are due. Accepted accounts of events are challenged while sensational new details emerge to cast a whole new light on the band's history—especially their early years with Atlantic Records in the United States. Former AC/DC members and musicians from bands such as Guns N' Roses, Dropkick Murphys, Airbourne and Rose Tattoo also give their take on the Youngs' brand of magic.Their music has never pulled its punches. Neither does The Youngs. After 40 years, AC/DC might just have gotten the serious book it deserves.

With sales of over 200 million albums, AC/DC is not just the biggest rock band in the world. It's a family business built by three brothers: George, Malcolm and Angus Young. And, as with any business, some people prospered while others got hurt along the way. The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC is unlike any AC/DC book you've read before. Less a biography, more a critical appreciation, it tells the story of the trio through 11 classic songs and reveals some of the personal and creative secrets that went into their making.

In the early hours of 19 February 1980, Bon Scott, lead singer of the rock band AC/DC, left The Music Machine in Camden, London, with a man called Alistair Kinnear, whereupon he lost consciousness and was left to sleep in Alistair's Renault 5, parked outside Alistair's East Dulwich apartment. That evening, Bon's lifeless body was found, still in the car. He was pronounced dead on arrival at King's College Hospital. Less than two months later, far away in the Caribbean, recording began on Back In Black, AC/DC's tribute to their fallen bandmate. Worldwide, it would go on to become the biggest selling rock album of all time.

What a great read. The last chapters really got to me - so sad.' Herm Kovac, bandmate and lifelong friend of Malcolm (and co-founder of TMG) Malcolm Young was a legend: the founder and the driving force of AC/DC, a man with what many have called 'the greatest right hand in rock and roll'. That right hand provided the instantly recognisable riffs and muscle behind such timeless songs as 'Highway to Hell', 'Back in Black', 'A Long Way to the Top' and many others. Malcolm was instrumental in ensuring that AC/DC survived shifting musical trends and numerous in-house dramas to stand tall as the biggest rock band on the planet. Yet he was the most unpretentious man to ever strap on a Gretsch guitar. One of eight children, Young was always destined for a life in rock and roll: his elder brother George was a key member of The Easybeats and was also a vital early mentor of AC/DC. And Malcolm stood alongside his younger brother Angus in AC/DC for the best part of 40 years. Malcolm lived hard and fast, enduring incredible hardship when the band started out in the mid-1970s, surviving the terrible loss of Bon Scott in 1980, and suffering numerous personal demons, including alcoholism. Yet without Malcolm Young, there would have been no AC/DC. As the band's former bassist, Mark Evans, wrote of Malcolm: 'He was the driven one, the planner, the schemer, the behind the scenes guy, ruthless and astute.' This is the first biography to focus exclusively on Malcolm and tells the riveting story of his remarkable rise from working-class Glasgow and the Villawood migrant hostel in Sydney to the biggest stages in the world. It includes rarely seen photographs and is essential reading for any AC/DC fan. 'Thank you, Malcolm, for the songs, and the feel, and the cool, and the years of losing control to your rock and roll.' Dave Grohl

From Jesse Fink, the author of the acclaimed Laid Bare: One Man’s Story of Sex, Love and Other Disorders and The Youngs: the Brothers Who Built AC/DC, comes a gripping piece of football writing, World Party: the Inside Story of the Socceroos’ Greatest Campaign, published exclusively for the first time in digital form and in celebration of Australia’s campaign at Brazil 2014. Fink was on the ground at Germany 2006, following the Socceroos up close and interviewing major figures in the team’s odyssey from qualifying in Homebush to crashing out in Kaiserslautern: Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka, Tim Cahill, Frank Lowy, Graham Arnold and many more. What he delivers is a book full of the sort of astute observations, big-picture views and fearless opinions that saw him become Australia’s most read and most controversial online football columnist between 2006 and 2011. First published as a print book in 2007, revised and abridged for this special World Cup edition, World Party is now regarded as a modern classic of sportswriting. As The Australian raved, ‘Fink certainly knows how to cover a major sporting event … the end result is a series of narratives culminating in the goals now seared into the memories of most Australians … Fink can take a moment and turn it into a vivid experience.’ Whether you’re staying at home to watch the greatest sporting event on earth on TV, or packing for your trip to Rio, World Party is essential reading.

Over three decades and more than 150 million albums, AC/DC has established itself as much more than just a great rock band. For millions of fans spanning several generations across the world, they are an ear-bleedingly loud, sweat-soaked religion, courtesy of such classic albums as Highway to Hell and Back in Black. Now, in a book of astonishing breadth and scope, comes, for the very first time, the complete story of AC/DC. Everything you ever wanted to know and plenty more you never dreamt of is all here, the ultimate balls-out adventure, laced with sex, drunken escapades and brawls. It's a journey that started in the suburban Sydney, Australia, bedrooms of brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, boys who could wreak havoc with their guitars. Over their power chords were the lyrics and voice of Bon Scott, who would lead them higher and higher—until his tragic death in 1980. The bittersweet irony after his death was that not only did the Youngs manage to hold together without him, but the band's fortunes and status skyrocketed with his replacement, Brian Johnson, and the album Back in Black. Five long years in the making, AC/DC: Maximum Rock & Roll is sourced from more than 1,300 interviews the band has given over the past thirty years combined with in excess of 75 of the authors' own interviews with those who worked with AC/DC both in the studio and on the road—many of whom have never spoken about the band publicly. It's topped off with stunning, never-before-seen photos to create the ultimate portrait of the ultimate rock band.

Formed in 1973, AC/DC became one of the most popular and bestselling bands in rock history with their no-frills approach to loud, heavy, and sweat-drenched blues-based rock music. This new book from prolific rock journalist Martin Popoff pays tribute to the band’s discography by moderating in-depth and entertaining conversations about all 16 of AC/DC’s studio albums, every page illustrated with thoughtfully curated performance and offstage photography and rare memorabilia. Popoff gathers 20 rock journalists and authors who offer insights, opinions, and anecdotes about every release. Together, the conversations comprise a unique history of the band, covering everything from early lineups; the role played by the Youngs’ older brother, George; the songwriting and legendary antics of original vocalist Bon Scott; the mega tours undertaken in support of the LPs; the debut of singer Brian Johnson on the band’s mega breakthrough, Back in Black; the band’s fallow 1980s and 1990s resurgence; and later difficulties, such as Malcolm’s onset of dementia and the legal problems of drummer Phil Rudd.

Australian rock giants AC/DC have sold more records in the U.S. than Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith, and than the Rolling Stones, yet have always been undervalued and unappreciated by mainstream rock music critics. In Why AC/DC Matters, former Rolling Stone staff writer and New York Times bestselling author Anthony Bozza addresses this inequity, penning a just tribute to these monsters of rock. Brimming with fascinating stories and insights from musicians, fans, music scholars, and the author himself, Why AC/DC Matters is an overdue homage to arguably the greatest rock and roll band of all time.
