New Book: Dirty Deeds: My Life Inside/Outside of AC/DC - by Mark Evans

A new book written by one of AC/DC's original bass players, Mark Evans, is due to be released in October 2011. The book, titled "Dirty Deeds: My Life Inside/Outside of AC/DC" is an honest, gripping, sometimes laugh-out-loud account of a band that lived fast, played hard and broke every one of the rules - before they broke all the records. It is also a revealing and frank memoir of a man who's had to contend with everything life has thrown at him - a rough-as-guts upbringing, lucky breaks and soaring highs, as well as terrible personal tragedy and loss. The hard lessons Mark has learned along the way will inspire any reader.

"Dirty Deeds is the first book about AC/DC written from the inside, by an insider - which is gold for any AC/DC fan."

AC/DC remains one of the top-grossing bands of all time, and Mark’s memoir is the first to reveal the band dynamic from behind the scenes, painting a portrait of five extremely hardworking, talented, and mischievous musicians who were yet culpable to the demons that drive many bands apart: sudden fame, sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll.

The 288 page book by publisher Bazillion Points will be available from Amazon.com from October 11, 2011. The book is available in Australia from August 1, 2011.

The book is available from Bazillion Points from November 2011.

Dirty Deeds by Mark Evans - Book Cover



Mark Evans joined AC/DC in 1975, at only nineteen years old, when they were one of the hardest working and loudest rock bands in Australia. In the next few years AC/DC recorded four bestselling albums, and Mark found himself headlining world tours and living the life of a bonafide rock star. His memoir, Dirty Deeds: My Life Inside and Outside of AC/DC, is the first book written by an AC/DC insider, giving fans insight into the life of not only Evans, but also singer Bon Scott, who died tragically in 1980. Rock and roll icons like George Harrison, Gene Simmons, and members of Metallica feature as well.

AC/DC remains one of the top-grossing bands of all time, and Mark’s memoir is the first to reveal the band dynamic from behind the scenes, painting a portrait of five extremely hardworking, talented, and mischievous musicians who were yet culpable to the demons that drive many bands apart: sudden fame, sex, drugs, and rock and roll.
