AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson has completed an autobiography, due out this fall.
The Lives of Brian: AC/DC, Me and the Making of Back in Black is due out October 26 via Dey Street Books.
"I've had some long nights and some great nights, bad days and a lot of good ones," Johnson said in a statement along with the book announcement. "I've gone from choirboy to rock 'n' roll singer, and now I've gone and written a bloody book about it..."
Johnson joined AC/DC in 1980, months after the tragic death of his predecessor Bon Scott. His first album with the Aussie rockers was the iconic Back in Black record — one of the biggest-selling rock albums of all-time.
He's appeared on every AC/DC record since 1980 — 11 total — including the band's acclaimed latest album, PWR/UP.
Johnson has also branched out to other industries in recent years, including auto racing and TV hosting. His Brian Johnson: A Life on the Road series launched in 2017. The series finds Johnson traveling the world getting nostalgic with his peers in rock 'n' roll — interviewing icons like Robert Plant, Billy Joel, Sting, Roger Daltrey, Joe Walsh and many others.
