Summary Note Malcolm Young was the founder and the driving force of AC/DC, a man who possessed what many have called 'the greatest right hand in rock and roll'. That riff-producing mitt provided the muscle behind such signature songs as 'Highway to Hell', 'Back in Black', 'A Long Way to the Top' and many others, helping AC/DC survive shifting musical trends and numerous in-house dramas to stand tall as the biggest rock band on the planet. Yet Malcolm was the most unpretentious man to ever strap on a wide-bodied Gretsch. 'I've never felt like a pop star,' he once told Rolling Stone. 'This is a 9-to-5 sort of gig.' This is the first biography to focus exclusively on Malcolm, and tells of his remarkable rise from working-class Glasgow and Sydney to the biggest stages in the world.
