Classic AC/DC Bassist Mark Evans Announces DIRTY DEEDS Memoir; First Insider Account of Formative Bon Scott Years

07-08-2011 09:29 AM CET | Arts & Culture

Press release from: Bazillion Points

Bazillion Points Books has announced the North American release of DIRTY DEEDS: My Life Inside/Outside AC/DC, by Mark Evans, bass player in the classic 1970s AC/DC lineup. Evans recorded countless rock anthems with the band on the groundbreaking releases High Voltage, TNT, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Let There Be Rock, and the '74 Jailbreak EP.

The book's release is scheduled for November 2011. For more information, visit: http://www.dirtydeedsbook.com

At nineteen years old in 1975, Mark Evans joined AC/DC, one of the hardest-working and loudest barroom bands in Australia. In the next few years AC/DC recorded a string of bestselling albums, and Mark found himself headlining world tours and living the life of a bona fide rock star. His memoir, Dirty Deeds: My Life Inside/Outside of AC/DC, is the first bio written by a band insider during the early years, giving insight into the struggles and camaraderie that fueled the rise of hard rock's most successful group. His likeable stories capture the energy and essence of Malcolm Young, Angus Young, Phil Rudd, and the late Bon Scott. Rock and roll icons like George Harrison, Gene Simmons, Phil Lynott, Alice Cooper, Ronnie Wood, Ahmet Ertegun, and members of Metallica feature as well.

"The aggressive attitude that AC/DC had towards Australian bands continued when we shifted overseas. The world's bigger bands became our new targets. Who the fuck did these pricks think they were? We saw a few of the so-called headline acts and straight away knew that we had nothing to fear."

It was a long way to the top... and Mark Evans was there.
