About the Author
Brian Johnson was born in Dunstan in Gateshead, England. After working various jobs in Tyneside and fronting local band Geordie, he joined AC/DC in 1980. He lives in Sarasota, Florida, and "Rockers and Rollers" is his first book.
“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.”
