Revue de presse

“It’s surprisingly refreshing that Johnson’s lively memoir basically has little to do with writing about life with AC/DC--it’s really all about cars.” (Publishers Weekly)

Présentation de l'éditeur

By night, Brian Johnson sings in the biggest rock 'n' roll band on the planet.But by day, AC/DC's charismatic, flat-capped frontman gets to indulge his passion for all things automotive.Cars and rock 'n'roll, they were made for each other.

Car racer, car collector and all-round car enthusiast, Johnson is an incurable, certifiable petrolhead who can't remember a time when four wheels didn't feature as large in his life as music.

Starting, as a young boy growing up in Tyneside, with an old steering wheel and his imagination, a lifelong passion took root early.And through cramped teenage fumbles in an old mini and clapped-out, hygienically challenged tour vans, to chauffeur-driven, leather-trimmed limos and a sideline as a successful racing driver, it's been there ever since.

By turns, surprising, joyful, poignant and usually laugh-out-loud funny, Rockers and Rollers is the story of man with an insatiable appetite for life and a glimpse into the extraordinary world of AC/DC, set soon to overtake the Beatles as the biggest selling-band in history.

Packed with hair-raising anecdotes and revealing a God-given talent for comic writing on every page, Brian Johnson has written the most unique, entertaining autobiography of the year.And essential reading for car nuts and rock fans.

Well that'll be most of us then ...

Sans être fan de voitures, on entre facilement dans cette compilation de souvenirs savoureux et très bien racontés où l'on croise de ci de là les membres du plus grand groupe du monde.
Très clairement Brian Johnson est un raconteur d'histoire de talent.

Un bon niveau d'anglais est requis.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hilarious, even for the non fan 5 juin 2011
Par William G. McCown, Ph. D. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I am not an AC/DC fanatic, by any means. I've seen them live a couple of times in their early incarnation with Bon Scott and a few times after. I still like them, but what more could I learn? So when Brian Johnson came on the Stern show a few weeks ago, I was almost ready to tune to the Grateful Dead channel. Glad I didn't. The interview was incredibly funny, subduing even the perplexed and occasionally dumbfounded Stern. The book surpasses the interview in its rollicking accounts by a factor of five, at least. I won't ruin the specifics for anyone, except to say that you'll find yourself muttering "I can't believe that he did that!" every couple of pages.

Unlike other books in this genre, Johnson writes sincerely, without a mean spirited ax to grind and without enemies (except for British car markers, whom he justifiably loathes!) The major butt of his humor and crude language is himself, first, and his lovable, though chronically irresponsible band mates second. However, despite more than a few stories of the road, the book is largely a celebration of Johnson's affinity with cars and racing. While not a surprise to most AC/DC fans, the depth of influence of cars on Johnson's life is still remarkable. His earliest peak experiences, to borrow a psychological term, involved motor vehicles, in the same way others of us tie our peak memories to music, sports, or relationships.

Regardless, it is enjoyable to read a rock memoir of a person who does not take himself too seriously. Johnson comes off as a guy you'd like as a neighbor, or a drinking-buddy, if you are oriented in that direction. The book, which apparently is not ghost written, does not follow strict chronology. This adds to its informality and authentic feel. It's 90 or so chapters read like discussion over a couple of Newcastle Browns in an English pub. It's a quick read. But unlike a discussion over Brown ale, you'll remember what was said.

If you like rock and roll, cars, or for that matter, like to laugh at impossibly strange situations, buy this book or download TODAY.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sounds just like Brian 4 novembre 2011

Heard parts of the book before it was published read by the author himself. It is a hilarious account of all the cars he's owned and his dream of wanting to own the "next prize car", in his opinion. What you read is how he speaks...to the point, no punches pulled...a real man with a sense of humor and no airs about his accomplishments. Enjoy...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Brilliant Book 28 juillet 2011
Par Geordie Dad - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Before I start to review this book let me say that I grew up on Tyneside in the 60s and 70s and even worked at Parsons for 10 years (where Johnna "served his time"). So I can probably relate to many of the events, situations and locations described a lot more than most readers.
The style of the book is really off the wall and works so well because of that. There is no timeline or plot. Just a bunch of chapters describing various cars and how they've affected Brian's life. In many cases he uses cars as a vehicle (groan!!) to describe his feelings for various family members, friends and acquaitances. Although his style appears to be haphazard it works really well. The main thing I took away from the book was that Brian is a really cool guy who certainly hasn't lost sight of where he came from (unlike a certain ex-teacher from Wallsend that I could mention). He appreciates the breaks that he's had (joining AC/DC) and has made a great life for himself. He cerainly doesn't come off as the big shot rock star who gets to drive fast cars.
His recollections of North East England in the 60s and 70s are spot on and while he may stretch some of the tales to get a punch line, his stories ring true and many of the characters in them are for-real.
If Brian ever does an audio version of this book I'd buy it in a heartbeat, but it would have to be the full unexpurgated Geordie version - not the English translation!

I heard Brian talking about this book and relating some of the stories in it on the Howard Stern show 2 weeks ago. Brian's delivery is so funny I hope he does the audio version himself, and not some bland-voiced reader. Brian has a heavy accent, but I love it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brian is the rock n roll version of Jeremy Clarkson. Very funny 12 avril 2013
Par Colin Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com
A friend bought me this book as a gift last Christmas and it's just been sitting in a pile of unread books since then as I'm not a big AC/DC fan. It came to the point that I had read all my outstanding books that I really wanted to read and so picked this one from my "If you have nothing else to read...." book pile. What a mistake that was. I should have read this the instant I received it.

As a lot of people will be aware, Brian Johnson is the front man for AC/DC. My initial instinct was, what does a rock front man know about cars? This is just going to be a few short stories about the porsches and Ferraris and other exotics that only people of Brians stature can afford. How wrong could I be?

This book is a hilarious memoir about the cars Brian has owned from his very first to his most recent (as at the time of publishing). A lot of these cars people here in the states have probably never heard of, however since I grew up and lived in the UK for years I knew a lot of the cars mentioned. Brian is a definate gearhead and his passion for cars shines through, especially for older (60's and 70's) cars. As well as giving a history of the cars owned, there is usually a short accompanying story with each one and almost every story is a complete hoot. This is genuinely a raucous belly laugh out loud book (which does get you some weird looks whilst you are sitting at an airport terminal waiting to board a plane).

The book is a very easy read with each chapter usually only lasting a page or two, so is easy to just to pick up and read when you have a spare 5 minutes. As well as Brians car history, you also get a history of Brian himself as well, so it's really a memoir in a way as well.

Brian's writing style is excellent. It's as if he's sitting next to you in a pub talking to you and as such there is liberal use of language in this book (so be warned).

Given his passion, knowledge and writing style, I would love to see Brian write a regular column for a publication (Top Gear Magazine maybe?) as I would certainly read it. Brian is the rock n roll version of Jeremy Clarkson.

This book appeals three audiences, those that like cars, those that like AC/DC and those that like a good heartfelt laugh. You don't even need to like cars or AC/DC to enjoy this book.
Very highly recommended.
