Author Susan Masino traces the band's roots, from their beginnings in Sydney, Australia, in the early 1970s to trailblazing the U.S. mainstream, to the devasting death of lead singer Bon Scott in 1980. After that tragedy, the band pulled together and rebounded to the top of the charts with new frontman Brian Johnson and their watershed album Back in Black. Through it all, AC/DC continues their quest to build a legion of new fans into the 21st century. Compiled from over 30 years of interviews Susan did with the band, as well as dozens of new interviews with other musicians and friends of the band, the real story of AC/DC is revealed.
