Highway to Hell by Clinton Walker
Book DescriptionA classic of rock writing, this is the definitive accounts of AC/DC's rise to fame, when the ribald lyrics and charismatic stage presence of singer Bon Scott, along with the formidable guitar work of brothers Angus and Malcolm Young, defined a new and highly influential brand of rock'n'roll. Drawing on many first-person interviews and featuring a gallery of rare photos, Walker traces AC/DC's career through the life of their original frontman, from the Scottish roots he shared with the Youngs right up to his shocking death in 1980.

'Wizard' Smith was an enigma. A contemporary of Bradman and Kingsford Smith, he was dumpy and shy. But when he got behind the wheel he became the Wizard, his command uncanny, the speeds breathless. In league with engineer Don Harkness he was pointing Australia toward a brighter future. Until somewhere along the line, things started going wrong.
