Publisher's Summary

By night, Brian Johnson sings in the biggest rock 'n' roll band on the planet. But by day, AC/DC's charismatic, flat-capped frontman gets to indulge his passion for all things automotive. Cars and rock 'n'roll - they were made for each other.
Car racer, car collector, and all-round car enthusiast, Johnson is an incurable, certifiable petrolhead who can't remember a time when four wheels didn't feature as large in his life as music.
Starting, as a young boy growing up in Tyneside, with an old steering wheel and his imagination, a lifelong passion took root early. And through cramped teenage fumbles in an old mini and clapped-out, hygienically challenged tour vans, to chauffeur-driven, leather-trimmed limos and a sideline as a successful racing driver, it's been there ever since.
By turns, surprising, joyful, poignant, and usually laugh-out-loud funny, Rockers and Rollers is the story of man with an insatiable appetite for life and a glimpse into the extraordinary world of AC/DC, set soon to overtake the Beatles as the biggest-selling band in history.
Packed with hair-raising anecdotes and revealing a God-given talent for comic writing on every page, Brian Johnson has written the most unique, entertaining autobiography of the year. And essential reading for car nuts and rock fans. Well that'll be most of us then....

Critic Reviews

"A fast, fun read. In each of its 90 short chapters, Mr. Johnson recounts a memory relating to cars or transportation in some way. As a boy, he dreamed of becoming a racer, not a rock star.… Enriching his narrative are recollections of a childhood spent in England’s gritty industrial northeast. Mr. Johnson’s gifts for storytelling and humor shine in colorful anecdotes about self-loathing co-workers from past jobs and in obscenity-laced rants about the British car industry."

A great book

This book was excellent. Strongly recommended for the car guy and rock and roll enthusiast. Learned a lot about Brian and his racing, and his passion for cars. Very entertaining, and informative. If you love ac dc, Cars, race cars, and rock and roll you will not be disappointed. Brian does an excellent job throughout the book. Very impressed.

What’s He Saying ?

I thought he’d write about the band days and why he had to quit singing. Lucky it only a four hour listen. A lot of short story’s about cars. At times funny. Hey Brian I’m not asking for a refund. That should count for something !
