Críticas

Praise for The Youngs: The Brothers who Built AC/DC "Recent books [about AC/DC] . . . didn't offer much to change our perception of the band. Jesse Fink's study of the Young brothers takes a different approach . . . giving us a different version of many stories, especially when it comes to the wheeling and dealing behind the rock. Fink is clearly in love with AC/DC, but he knows the old bird has some warts under her make-up, and doesn't shy away from revelations that cast the Youngs in a less than flattering light." -- Rolling Stone "The best book I've ever read about AC/DC." -- Mark Evans, AC/DC (1975-'77) "A great job." -- Tony Platt, Back In Black and Highway To Hell engineer "I loved it." -- Jerry Greenberg, president of Atlantic Records (1974-'80)

"It's hands down the most informative look at AC/DC's golden years, 1977-80, ever." -- The Canton Repository

"Very eye opening. . . Jesse Fink has done rock fans a great service. He dispels the many myths about how AC/DC's Bon Scott lived and died, and in doing so, brings to life one of the most influential, memorable, and complex figures in rock history." -- Greg Renoff, author of Van Halen Rising

"Jesse Fink is not the first writer to suggest that there's something fishy about the official version of Scott's death and its aftermath, but no one else has offered such a plausible or exhaustively researched alternative theory. . . Vindicating old school journalistic rigour, Fink compiles a vast testimony from multiple sources and invites the reader to decide where the truth lies. . . It's a dense, tangled tale, but Fink reveals the humanity behind the myth." - MOJO Magazine

"A very powerful book." - NewsRadio KLBJ 590AM / 99.7FM

"Crossing continents and tracking key figures down, Fink's work here is impressive; his book is exhaustively investigative and engrossing . . . Bon: The Last Highway views AC/DC's final years with Bon Scott as one giant crime scene that has never been properly solved and offers fans much to contemplate." - Exclaim!

"Wildly obsessive and doggedly researched, Bon: The Last Highway sifts through the myths for the truth of what happened to Bon Scott on his last day on earth. Jesse Fink, who seemingly spoke to everyone, moves through a complex web of misconceptions, biases, and addiction-marred memories, connecting narrative strands and hitherto unknown facts. As with Hank Williams - another iconic singer who died mysteriously in the backseat of a car on a lost highway - the story of Bon Scott and his tragic demise may never be accurately known, but this one-man investigation, born of respect for the truth and for Scott as a human being, blazes a new trail." -- Joe Bonomo, author of AC/DC's Highway To Hell (33 1/3 Series)

"It was an honour to be interviewed for this book." -- Barry Bergman, AC/DC's publisher and 'surrogate manager'

"Jesse Fink's book is an interesting read and a great page-turner whether you're particularly interested in Bon himself or just a love of a great Rock and Roll story." - The Rockpit Australia

"Jesse Fink's exhaustively researched book is a revelation for fans." - Ultimate Classic Rock

"It is a fascinating portrait of a troubled man with a serious alcohol addiction. . . Fink does not claim his book is definitive, but it is a damn good effort." - Irish Times

The death of Bon Scott is the Da Vinci Code of rock

In death, AC/DC’s trailblazing frontman has become a rock icon, and the legend of the man known around the world simply as “Bon” grows with each passing year. But how much of it is myth?

At the heart of Bon: The Last Highway is a special — and unlikely — friendship between an Australian rock star and an alcoholic Texan troublemaker. Jesse Fink, author of the critically acclaimed international bestseller The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC, reveals its importance for the first time.

Leaving no stone unturned in a three-year journey that begins in Austin and ends in London, Fink takes the reader back to 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, Fink divulges startling new information about Bon’s last hours to solve the mystery of how he died.

Music fans around the world have been waiting for the original, forensic, unflinching, and masterful biography Bon Scott so richly deserves — and now, finally, it’s here.
