Rockers and Rollers: A Full-Throttle Memoir
Rockers and Rollers: A Full-Throttle Memoir (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 days
By night, Brian Johnson sings in the biggest rock 'n' roll band on the planet. But by day, AC/DC's frontman drives balls to the wall.
When he was a young boy growing up in a working-class English town, Brian developed what would become a lifelong passion for cars, trolling junkyards and even pretending to drive the family car. From there, he steamed up the windows of his old Mini Cooper as a teenager, spent untold time in hygienically challenged tour buses, was chauffeured in leather-trimmed limos, and raced cars to a checkered flag.
Featuring guest stars Cliff Williams, Malcolm and Angus Young, and many, many others—even Arnold Schwarzenegger—Rockers and Rollers is a tribute to Brian's obsession with four wheels. By turns surprising, poignant, funny, and maybe a little bit bawdy, these are the stories of a man who drives as hard as he rocks.
About the Author
Brian Johnson was born in Dunstan in Gateshead, England. After working various jobs in Tyneside and fronting local band Geordie, he joined AC/DC in 1980. He lives in Sarasota, Florida, and Rockers and Rollers is his first book.
Praise for Rockers and Rollers: A Full-Throttle Memoir…
“It’s surprisingly refreshing that Johnson’s lively memoir basically has little to do with writing about life with AC/DC--it’s really all about cars.”
