As the legend of the man known around the world simply as 'Bon' has grown with each passing year since his untimely death, AC/DC's trailblazing frontman has become a rock icon. But how much of it is true and how much is myth? At the heart of this book is a special - and unlikely - friendship between a Scottish-born Australian rock star and an alcoholic Texan troublemaker. Leaving no stone unturned in a journey that begins in Austin in 1977 and ends in London in 1980, Jesse Fink takes the reader back to the end of the '70s, a legendary era for music that saw the relentless AC/DC machine achieve its commercial breakthrough but also threaten to come apart. With unprecedented access to Bon's lovers, newly unearthed documents, and a trove of never-before-seen photos, he divulges startling new information about Bon's incredible life and his final hours to solve the mystery of how he died.
