AC/DC frontman, Brian Johnson has announced an upcoming autobiography titled, The Lives of Brian, arriving October 26th. Pre-order here. 

The longtime hard-rock frontman took over lead vocal duties in the band following the untimely death of Bon Scott in 1980. His upcoming memoir will tell his life story from growing up in a working-class town in England to his journey to becoming the voice of one of the world’s biggest rock bands.

“I’ve had some long nights and some great nights, bad days and a lot of good ones,” Johnson said in a statement.  “I’ve gone from choirboy to rock’n’roll singer, and now I’ve gone and written a bloody book about it.”

 

A synopsis explains: “For over a decade [Johnson] tried to make his mark with a succession of bands. He appeared on Top of the Pops, toured Australia and yet the big time looked out of reach.” 

“Then he was invited to London for an audition for one of the world’s biggest rock acts. AC/DC were a band in crisis following the tragic death of their lead singer, Bon Scott, but with Brian on board, they would record their masterpiece: Back in Black. It became the biggest-selling rock album of all time. The tour that followed played to packed-out arenas. Quickly embraced by the band’s fans, the new boy had earned his spurs.”

“It’s been a rollercoaster of a life, throughout which Brian’s kept his feet firmly on the ground, never losing touch with his roots.”

You can pre-order The Lives of Brian here.

AC/DC’s first new album in six years, Power Up was released in November last year. Read more, here.
