Insider AC/DC Book On The Way

Former bassist Mark Evans pens his autobiography

DIRTY DEEDS: My Life Inside/Outside of AC/DC, by Mark Evans is remarkable as being the first book to be written by a member of the band from their early days.

Evans played in AC/DC from 1975 - 1977 and appeared on High Voltage, TNT, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Let There Be Rock, and the '74 Jailbreak EP.

The book gives insight into the struggles and camaraderie that fueled the rise of hard rock’s most successful band. His perceptive stories capture the energy and essence of Malcolm Young, Angus Young, Phil Rudd, and the late Bon Scott. Rock and roll icons like George Harrison, Gene Simmons, Alice Cooper, Ronnie Wood, and members of Metallica feature as well.

"The aggressive attitude that AC/DC had towards Australian bands continued when we shifted overseas. The world's bigger bands became our new targets. Who the fuck did these pricks think they were? We saw a few of the so-called headline acts and straight away knew that we had nothing to fear."

Dirty Deeds is released on 11 October
