Editorial Reviews

Review

"An essential read for fans of the band. Most important, The Youngs gives a full portrait of just how significant a role George Young, Malcolm and Angus's older brother, played in AC/DC's development."
- The New Yorker


"It's extraordinarily well written and presents a fascinating view of the band and the people that helped make it happen... a great piece of research and magnificently presented."
- Phil Carson, former vice-president of Atlantic Records who signed AC/DC 

"A fascinating, insightful look at the brothers who changed the face of rock 'n' roll and the politics and business that goes hand in hand with the music we all know and love."
- Jimmy Stafford, guitarist of Train

"A largely untold, more controversial story... anything but a hagiography. A fresh, incisive take on the band. Though Fink's deffo off the Christmas card list, he writes passionately about a band he adores."
- MOJO (UK) ★ ★ ★ ★


"Fink's ability to overcome the Youngs' code of Scottish-Australian omertà is impressive... a cut above other AC/DC tomes, and Fink knows it."
- Classic Rock (UK) 9/10 review
