AC/DC’s Brian Johnson to release career-spanning memoir

Posted by on April 15, 2021


AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson has announced that he will be releasing a new memoir. The Lives of Brian is set to hit shelves on October 26 through Harper Collins‘ Dey Street Books. 

“I’ve had some long nights and some great nights, some bad days and a lot of good days, and during that time I’ve gone from choirboy to rock & roll singer, and now I’ve gone and written a bloody book about it,” said Johnson in a tweet announcing the book. 

Reads a synopsis of the book:

“Brian Johnson’s memoir from growing up in a small town to starting his own band to ultimately replacing Bon Scott, the lead singer of one of the world biggest rock acts, AC/DC. They would record their first album together, the iconic Back in Black, which would become the biggest selling rock album of all time.” 

This is Johnson’s second autobiography. In 2009 (in the UK, 2011 internationally), he released Rockers And Rollers, which chronicled his life through his love for automobiles. 

After taking a leave of absence from AC/DC in 2016 due to hearing loss, Johnson returned to the fold in 2018 for the recording of the band’s 17th studio album, Power Up, released in 2020. The album debuted at number one in the US and several other countries. 

The Lives of Brian is available for pre-order now. A short trailer for the book can be seen here.
