About the Author :

Mark Evans became the bassist of AC/DC in 1975, at only nineteen years old, when they were one of the hardest working and loudest rock bands in Australia. In the next few years AC/DC recorded the bestselling albums TNT, High Voltage, Dirty Deeds Done Cheap, and Let There Be Rock, and Mark found himself headlining world tours and living the life of a bonafide rock star.

Review :

An honest and comical look at AC/DC’s rise to the upper echelons of hard rock through the eyes of the former bassist” Lick Library News

"A treasure trove of insider info and intra-band intrigue. Worth every penny." Decibel

Evans managed to render his book much like AC/DC’s iconic hard rock: lean, raw, unflinching, and heavy on the riffs.” The Onion A/V Club.

"One of my favorite reads this year." Guitar World

"As someone who was around Bon Scott, Angus and Malcolm Young and Phil Rudd constantly, he provides an interesting and unique look into their personalities ... a very interesting book." about.com

"An amazing read from the first page on, I couldn’t put it down." The Aquarian Weekly

"Fast, funny and full of insights about a notoriously closed shop group." RTÉ

"An outstanding memoir." acdczone

"Offers a glimpse at AC/DC’s studio approach and what it was like to ride the big black locomotive to superstardom in the 1970s." Premier Guitar

"A fast-moving, hair-blowing joyride, full of fantastic stories, colorful characters and wince-inducing laughs ... a richly rewarding experience." The Nervous Breakdown

Much meatier on the band’s history than Brian Johnson’s recent band/car memoir, Rockers and Rollers Houston Press

"Evans is a fascinating study in how to learn from your mistakes and how to handle the aftermath of success when you no longer have it. This book is a must-have for AC/DC obsessives and casual fans too." [5/5] Metal Army America

"Compelling and highly entertaining ... an eye-opening look into one of rock's biggest, and most secretive, outfits." MusicRadar

"A first-hand look into AC/DC's early career, and what it was like playing in a band beside Angus and Malcolm Young, Bon Scott, and Phil Rudd, an insight which has never been revealed or told before, from someone that was there to experience it first hand. This makes the book stand out over any of the AC/DC books released on the market previously...certainly a must have for any true AC/DC fan." AC/DCcollector.com

"While former AC/DC bassist Evans provides a rare 'been there, done that' perspective of touring with the group, he doesn't focus on the sultry details of groupie action or condemn the notorious dictatorial control of the band's Young brothers. Although some readers may wish for more dirt, this is the life journey of a guy who just happened to be part of the biggest rock band in Australian history. Evans's prose reads like a casual conversation you'd hear while nursing a pint on a barstool folksy, with a gentleman's dose of rock 'n' roll attitude. He paints the late Bon Scott as a kind person more worried about being a good friend than living a rock 'n' roll lifestyle, and his glimpses of Angus Young show that the uptight teetotaler guitarist knew how to let his hair down. And without the annoying flood of 'I' sentences, Evans lets us know who he is as he opens up about his post-AC/DC depression and the shock of losing his oldest daughter. VERDICT By the end of this rewarding book, readers may find themselves more interested in Evans than his former band. Great for AC/DC fans and memoir readers, this is easy entertainment with a sincere heart." Library Journal
