9780857986498: The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC

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. 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 perspectives 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 got the serious book it deserves.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

With sales of over 200 million albums, AC/DC is not just the biggest rock band in the world. It's a family empire built by three brothers: George, Malcolm and Angus Young. One of the most original music biographies of recent times, The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC is unlike any AC/DC book you've read before. It tells the extraordinary story of the men behind this musical and commercial colossus through 11 classic songs, revealing 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, jaw-dropping revelations are made, while unsung heroes behind the band's astonishing success are given the credit they are due. Accepted accounts of events are challenged, sensational details emerge to cast a whole new light on the band's breakout years in the United States, and a cast of AC/DC insiders and musicians from bands such as Guns N Roses and Dropkick Murphys give their take on the Youngs brand of magic. AC/DC's music has never pulled its punches. Neither does The Youngs. After 40 years, AC/DC has finally gotten the serious book it deserves.

Revue de presse :

The best book I've ever read about AC/DC. --Mark Evans, former AC/DC bassist and author of Dirty Deeds. Recent books [about AC/DC]... didn't offer much to change our perception of the band. Jesse Fink's study of the Young brothers takes a different approach... giving us a different version of many stories, especially when it comes to the wheeling and dealing behind the rock. Fink is clearly in love with AC/DC, but he knows the old bird has some warts under her make-up, and doesn't shy away from revelations that cast the Youngs in a less than flattering light. --Rolling Stone. An excellent writer and storyteller--The Daily Telegraph. Fink can take a moment and turn it into a vivid experience. --The Australian By tracing the lives of 11 songs from the band's 40-plus-year career, Fink charts the history of the band's success and examines the recording process behind each song. - Publisher's Weekly This thought-provoking book definitely breaks some new ground. This one's a must-read for fans. --Library Journal
