With sales of over 200 million albums, AC / DC is not just the biggest rock band in the world, it is a family empire built by three brothers - George, Malcolm and Angus Young. One of the most original music biographies of recent times, The Youngs - The Brothers Who Built AC / DC is unlike any AC / DC book youve read before. It tells the extraordinary story of the men behind this musical and commercial colossus through eleven classic songs, revealing some of the personal and creative secrets that went into their making. Important figures from AC / DCs long way to the top open up for the very first time, jaw-dropping revelations are made, while unsung heroes behind the bands astonishing success are given due credit. Accepted accounts of events are challenged, sensational details emerge to cast a whole new light on the bands breakout years in the United States and a cast of AC / DC insiders and musicians from bands such as Guns N Roses and Dropkick Murphys give their take on the Youngs brand of magic. AC / DCs music has never pulled its punches. Neither does The Youngs. After more than forty years, AC / DC finally has the serious book it deserves.
