            Malcolm Young: The Man Who Made Ac/Dc

            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 T...op' 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. One of eight, Young always seemed destined for a life in rock and roll: his brother George was a key member of Australian legends The Easybeats and was also a huge early mentor and supporter of AC/DC. His brother Angus, the oldest schoolboy in the world, stood alongside Malcolm in AC/DC for the best part of 40 years. Malcolm lived hard and fast, enduring incredible hardship when the band first started out in the mid 1970s, surviving the terrible loss of Bon Scott in 1980, and suffering numerous personal demons, including alcoholism. It was a series of severe health problems that led to his death, aged just 64, in 2017, from complications arising from the dementia with which he'd been diagnosed in 2014. Yet without Malcolm Young, there would have been no AC/DC - it's as simple as that. As the band's former bassist, Mark Evans, wrote of Malcolm: 'He was the driven one, the planner, the schemer, the behind the scenes guy, ruthless and astute.'

            The Book of Daniel: From Silverchair to Dreams

            When Silverchair shuddered to a halt in 2011, there was no swan song, no farewell tour, just a brief statement and then they were gone - after more than fifteen years of brilliant music, five hit albums, legions of fans, millions of record sales, scores of awards and the odd cont...roversy. Three teenagers from Newcastle had taken the world by storm within the time it typically takes most bands to record their first single. Over their stratospheric career, Daniel Johns developed into a performer and songwriter with few peers in modern music. After the end of his marriage to Natalie Imbruglia and the break-up of his band, he became the focus of sordid headlines and whispers of wayward behaviour. People feared what might happen next. But at the same time a new Daniel Johns emerged. His debut solo album, Talk, appeared to rapturous reviews in 2015 and raced to the top of the Australian charts, and then 2018 saw the advent of DREAMS, his long-awaited collaboration with Luke Steele,. This was a vastly different Daniel Johns to the grungy, guitar-blazing teen of the 1990s. His new sound and image were sophisticated, brilliant and sexy as hell. It was a remarkable creative makeover, perhaps the most ambitious ever undertaken by an Australian rockstar. Former rockstar. The Book of Daniel documents how the reclusive Johns also battled many personal demons, including life-threatening anorexia and crippling reactive arthritis. Drawing on more than fifteen years of documenting the life and times of Daniel Johns, author Jeff Apter has brought his story to life, revealing the struggles and triumphs of one of Australia's most distinctive and dazzling talents. The book also includes a collection of exclusive photographs of Johns by eminent rock photographer Tony Mott.

            To rattle off the hits of Neil and Tim Finn reads like a checklist of recent pop history. And to think it all began in sleepy rural Te Awamutu - a town whose name had a 'truly sacred ring', as Neil would famously recount - where Brian Timothy Finn fell in love with the Beatles, a...n obsession that would work its way into Neil's DNA.
