Book Report: ROCKERS AND ROLLERS: An Automotive Autobiography

In ROCKERS AND ROLLERS: An Automotive Autobiography, AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson shows just why cars and rock ‘n’ roll were made for each other.

By night, Brian Johnson sings in one of the biggest rock ‘n’ roll bands on the planet.

But by day, AC/DC’s charismatic, flat-capped frontman gets to indulge his passion for all things automotive.

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

In ROCKERS AND ROLLERS: An Automotive Autobiography, Johnson shows just why cars and rock ‘n’ roll were made for each other.

Johnson shares thoughts on cars, racing experiences and celebrities including:

• Racing against (and eventually defeated by) Paul Newman in the 1992 Cleveland Celebrity Grand Prix;

• His final touching and hilarious conversation with music legend and Saab enthusiast, Jerry Wexler;

• His great love and first race car: the Lotus Cortina Mk1; and

• Why he thinks “Pimp my Ride” is the most ridiculous TV show ever made.

From teenage memories in the backs of beat-up coups to a side career as a racecar driver, Johnson shares his tantalizing life story — a memoir told through his lifelong love affair with cars.
