I am a huge AC/DC fan especially of the Bon Scott years. I have been so excited about reading this book and it did not disappoint. Mark chronicles his time in the band and his eventual dismissal with amazing candour. He comes across as a really likeable guy. I really loved reading about the band during his time with them, especially Bon Scott. He writes about his exploits and the adventures he has as a young musician with humour and honesty yet he does not come across as a spoiled rock star at all. Even when he details his sacking from the band, it is done without any bitterness or nastiness. His life after AC/DC is discussed and all credit to Mark for picking himself up and being a successful musician in his own right.

The personal tragedy he suffers when he loses his daughter was so heartbreaking. He is obviously a real devoted husband and father.

I would highly recommend this book. It is brilliantly written, very funny and a real insight into AC/DC. I enjoyed every word of it...just brilliant :) x

I'm a huge AC/DC fan of 30 years so I had to buy this. A great insight in to the earlier years of AC/DC from Mark's point of view and around the recording of those important albums he made with the band. Particularly liked his views on the first time they came to London in 1976. Also a candid and heartfelt look in to some of his personal life. Would highly recommend to any AC/DC fan but particularly fans of their early output.

This is one of the one best music books I've read. Evans was the bass player for AC-DC during the Bon Scott years and played on the early albums up to and including Let There Be Rock. That great bass intro for Live Wire? That's him. He gives a fascinating first-hand account of his tough early life, his turbulent career with the band between 74-77 (non-stop gigging in Australia plus their first UK and European tours), and his life after being sacked from the band. The books rolls along at a slick pace and Evans has a compelling style of writing: honest, funny and, when family tragedy strikes, very moving. The most interesting aspects of the books include the band's arrival in London during the punk Summer of '76, and the profiles that steadily emerge of Bon, Malcolm, and Angus. For diehard fans of the Young brothers, some passages make for uncomfortable reading. However, Evans is never judgemental or bitter, and comes across as a genuine, warm-hearted Aussie rocker. After I finished the book, I scrutinized my CD reissues of Dirty Deeds and Let There Be Rock. Guess what? No photos of Mark Evans. The man deserves better.

Although this covers all of the authors life, the part that interested me was his time in AC/DC as I remember those years (the 70's) quite clearly.

The book is well written and blasts along at a good pace.

Highly recommended if your and AC/DC fan, may be a bit wasted on you if your not.

I've read a number of books about the life and times of AC/DC, but I rate this as the best. It's very different. It describes Mark Evans's two years with AC/DC in a very straight, balanced and revealing way. A lot of the credit has to go to his writing assistant for nailing the tone perfectly and telling the story in a such way that I couldn't put it down.

The book is a great window into AC/DC members, their personalities and quirks at a very important time when they were just starting to make it big on the international stage. But it's a more than that as it follows an emotive and interesting journey of guy who came from a very modest background to be propelled into experiences the rest of us can only dream of.

It's very easy to relate to Mark. He comes across not as a rock star, but as an "everyday Aussie bloke" who happened to play in one of the world's biggest rock acts. Despite his grievances as to being pushed from the band, he comes across as more thankful than bitter. He's certainly had some very highs and lows. He seems to be getting there, but ultimately I hope he finds true peace.

A very good read. Thanks for telling your story Mark.

Mark Evans has produced a very well written book that is heart felt, sincere, thought provoking and humorous. It almost feels like your sitting having a coffee with him while he's telling you what happened. I thoroughly enjoyed the book.
