What makes AC/DC’s music so powerful? Why is AC/DC the biggest rock band in the world? That was the starting point for me when I began my journey writing the book The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC. The story of AC/DC – the Youngs (brothers Angus and Malcolm), Bon Scott, Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams, Phil Rudd, Mark Evans, Simon Wright, Chris Slade, Tony Currenti, Dave Evans and a cast of other bass players and drummers – is one of the great musical stories of all time. Few bands can count both the durability and ongoing cultural relevance of AC/DC. But AC/DC’s long way to the top is as much a business story as it is an artistic one. AC/DC is an unrivalled commercial colossus in the music business. The band’s extraordinary success and inordinate wealth wasn’t achieved simply on the strength of their uncompromising music, boundless talent, monster riffs, memorable lyrics, work ethic and famous tenacity. It required the input, wisdom, expertise and support of other people at critical times: producers such as George Young, Harry Vanda, Mutt Lange, Brendan O’Brien and Bruce Fairbairn; managers Michael Browning, David Krebs, Steve Leber, Stewart Young, Ian Jeffery, Steve Barnett and Peter Mensch; engineers Mike Fraser, Mark Opitz, David Thoener, Barry Diament and Tony Platt; logo designer Gerard Huerta; record executives Michael Klenfner, Perry Cooper, David Glew, Phil Carson and Jerry Greenberg; and so many more behind-the-scenes players and supporters. AC/DC is a world phenomenon. Their music touches all of us both physically and emotionally. It’s in the gut and in the heart. But I’d argue the greatest thing about this band is the people who love them: the fans. They come from all walks of life. They all have their own stories. They buy the records and merchandise. They patiently wait years for the concerts. They get tattoos of the band’s logo or Bon’s head. They spend hours every day combing the internet for news about their heroes. They’re more loyal, dedicated and strong in number than any other fans in the rock universe. As much as the Young brothers’ guitars or Phil Rudd’s drumming, the fans are the lifeblood of AC/DC. It is for these fans that The AC/DC Family was born. I’m a member of the family and a proud one. It is an honour to endorse this great website. I salute you, AC/DC Family.
