‘A revelation…the most perceptive book written about an Australian rock figure’ Sydney Morning Herald

When Bon Scott died in London in 1980, AC/DC were on the brink of becoming the world’s biggest rock band. As the lightning bolt of lyrical inspiration behind their songs and frontman for their high voltage live performances, Bon was already a legend. In death, he became the ultimate Australian rock icon.

Highway to Hell tells Bon Scott’s story in two-fisted prose drawn from deep research and scores of interviews. It charts the long way to the top for a larrikin lad from Fremantle who rose out of the rubble of a primitive pop scene to become the voice of a generation – the raucous howl and mischievous glint in classic songs like ‘TNT’, ‘Jailbreak’, ‘Let There Be Rock’, ‘Dirty Deeds’ and ‘Whole Lotta Rosie’, which are still finding new fans to this day.

Since it was first published to worldwide acclaim in 1994, Clinton Walker’s Highway to Hell has endured as the definitive book on Bon Scott and AC/DC. It stands as a moving and vivid tribute to the redemptive power of rock’n‘roll and to a unique man who gave his life in pursuit of a wild, beautiful dream.

‘Great reporting, scholarship and storytelling’ Rolling Stone (US)
