The Lives of Brian Brian Johnson Michael Joseph RRP $40

Reviewed by Daryl Crimp

You don’t have to be an AC/DC fan to enjoy this book—or even a lover of rock or celebrity. For a genre specific book, this is one of the rare exceptions where I’d put money on a bet that it will appeal to all walks. Why?

Because it’s a cracking good read, a page turner, captivating and a bloody good story. Brian Johnson, lead singer of the perennial ageing rock band and host of his autobiographical TV series Brian Johnson’s A Life on the Road, is a natural yet masterful storyteller with a delightful turn of phrase.

While this is autobiographical, covering his early years through the euphorically serendipitous catapult into rock folklore, it contains all the elements of a good novel: triumph over tragedy, rags to riches story, the underdog element, joy, euphoria, fear, frustration and sheer grit laced with determination—all grounded in working class tradition.

It’s an inspiring feel good read that will leave you wanting more and likely make you an AC/DC fan—if you are not already one of the millions.
