3.0 out of 5 stars Controversial, 21 July 2013
This review is from: AC/DC: Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be (Hardcover)
Seems to be a rather good and informative book, although much of the information in this book can be found in other ac/dc books, especially the Highway to hell Bon Scott book. I get the feeling that this author doesn`t like the Young brothers, especially Malcolm. The author praises Mutt Lange, the producer of the 3 ac/dc albums highway to hell, back in black and for those about to rock. The author claims that these are ac/dc`s best albums, where most would disagree. I think ac/dc`s best albums are the first 5 George Young Harry Vanda produced albums. No way is For those About To Rock better than Let There Be Rock or Powerage. The author does touch on a few controversial topics such as who really wrote much of the lyrics to the Back In Black album. He claims Bon did. I don`t suppose we`ll ever know the truth about who did write the lyrics but it wouldn`t be suprising if Bon did write the lyrics to that album. Bon did have a note pad where he did write down many of his lyrics for songs. That note pad did disappear after his death. I have also seen an interview with angus where Angus says that sometimes Bon would struggle to write lyrics and he had to get George, Angus`s brother, to help Bon with the lyrics. So maybe Bon`s notepad of lyrics had both his and george`s lyrics written in that book. And when the time came to put words to the Back In Black album, the band maybe didn`t know which lyrics were Bon`s or which lyrics were George`s in that note pad. The most controversial topic in this book is the story about how bon died. I have to agree with the author here who claims that we`ve not been told the full story about how Bon died. It`s now pretty well known that the "chocking on his vomit" was a cover story. The author in this book claims that Bon had snorted heroin that night and actually died from snorting the heroin. The author also claims that alister Kinnear, who last saw Bon alive, was a heroin dealer as was bon`s live in lover at the time, Margaret Silver. I do believe that there`s more to the story of bon`s death but whether he died of a heroin overdose, i don`t know. If this story about bon`s death is true then alister Kinnear will, and rightly so, end up being the most hated man in the history of Rock`n`roll.
