Book Review: AC/DC: High-Voltage Rock ‘N’ Roll

AC/DC High-Voltage Rock ‘N’ Roll is the first complete illustrated history of the band. The 224-page book is filled with many rare photos, rock posters, memorabilia and more. Author Phil Sutcliffe does a wonderful job telling us the history of the band chronologically through both pictures and words.

Some of the highlights include past tour recollections, stories of how each album was recorded and a first hand look at how the band made it through the highs and lows of stardom. The story begins all the way back with Angus and Malcolm Young’s father, when he was a member of The Easybeats and finishes with the “Black Ice” World Tour. It even includes an Afterword from Def Leppard lead singer and AC/DC fan Joe Elliott. One of my favorite things about this book is the discography which tells you everything, including songwriters, singles, chart positions and more about every album the band recorded.

This book is a must have for any AC/DC fan or a fan of classic rock music. The book was released back in October and was published by Voyageur Press. For more information, please visit voyageurpress.com.
