AC/DC are without doubt one of the world's biggest bands. Their appeal lies in blending the fierce energy and all-out guns-blazing attack of heavy metal with the bluesy groove and infectious boogie of the Stones.
In 2013 it will be 40 years since AC/DC were founded, and they're still rocking, still hitting the road, and still selling out stadiums, while their back catalogue – boasting classic albums like Back in Black and Highway to Hell – continues to dominate the airtime of radio stations and pub juke boxes the world over.
Acclaimed by both fans and critics, this is the definitive account of the world's greatest rock and roll band, presenting the whole story –from humble beginnings in Australia, through the sudden death of founding member Bon Scott and his replacement with Geordie singer Brian Johnson, a string of peerless albums in the '70s and early '80s, and adrenalin-soaked live performances.
AC/DC: Maximum Rock & Roll is a must-have for anyone who wants to reacquaint themselves with the world's greatest rock & roll band, and the perfect starting place for those 'about to rock...'
