Back cover copy

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.

Review quote

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. --Publishers Weekly"
