Anthony Bozza – Why AC/DC Matters

I think it’s quaint that this book got published. Not to disparage it in anyway, because I am always (always) happy to read about AC/DC. What I meant was that it pretty much didn’t need to be written. Let’s be real here: We all already instinctively know that AC/DC matters. It’s primal. Visceral. It just IS, and thank goodness for that.

What Anthony Bozza’s book is, then, is basically a mini-biography of the band and its members, interspersed with a collection of all the ways he could think of to use and twist the English language into new ways to effuse about the band.

So, when Bozza tells us about how the band started and who the members are, and the band’s story, etc, we say: we already knew this stuff. And when he enthusiastically raves about every aspect of the band and their playing and their magic, soul and consistency, and how they play for the fans not for the money (haha erm, sure), we say: WE KNOW.

Fair play, it’s still a cool book. But it’s preaching to the choir, baby. Now turn it the hell up and get some AC/DC in yer ears! \m/ \m/

    This book sounds like it was written like a click bait article. Misleading title, the article doesn’t answer the question, full of crap you already know. I have 6 AC/DC albums in my car right now. That is what matters.

    Daft. There is no point to this stuff, the band never let anything slip to anyone – they’re too disciplined, so all you get are the same old tales.

    As you said, the point is they’re visceral.

      Hahahahahaaaaa this made my morning! I looked the dude up, and found this:

      “Anthony Bozza is the author of four New York Times Bestsellers, including Whatever You Say I Am: The Life and Times of Eminem, Slash, co-written with Slash and the #1 bestselling Too Fat to Fish, co-written with Artie Lange. Bozza was a staff writer and editor for Rolling Stone magazine for seven years, during which he profiled a diverse range of artists from Eminem and the Wu-Tang Clan to Trent Reznor and U2. He lives in New York City.”

      Four times NYT bestseller and missed making this one a one-liner on Twitter. Sad.

      Too true, Deke! Yeah I dunno what I was hoping for when I started reading this… maybe something I didn’t already know? Maybe another reason (among the myriad) to love the band? Ah well. Now I can say I’ve done that!
