Why Does AC/DC Matter? Anthony Bozza Tells Us!

WhyACDC.MattersHC c

I’ve always been a big fan of AC/DC, but then a lot of us are.  AC/DC is the second-best-selling popular music act of all time, behind only The Beatles, with over 200 million albums sold worldwide.  Their album “Back in Black” is the second best-selling album of all time behind only Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” with over 49 million copies sold, and their latest album “Black Ice” debuted at #1 in 29 countries despite the fact that it was only available in Walmart, Sam’s Club, and via the band’s website.

The second-best tag however, also seems to apply to how critics have treated the band over the years, slagging them off as second-rate and boorish.  So why does AC/DC matter?  Well, we sat down to talk with former Rolling Stone writer and NY Times bestselling author Anthony Bozza to set the record straight and get the inside scoop on his new book Why AC/DC Matters? (William Morrow 2009)


Anthony Bozza helmed Rolling Stone’s Random Notes column for two years, and penned cover stories and features on artists ranging from Trent Reznor to Jennifer Lopez to Ozzy Osbourne and Bo Diddley.  In addition, Anthony co-authored the NY Times #1 Bestseller Too Fat to Fish with comedian Artie Lange as well as bestsellers Whatever You Say I Am:  The Life and Times of Eminem, Tommyland – the autobiography of Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, and Slash, the autobiography of Guns N’ Roses’ and Velvet Revolver’s legendary guitarist.  If you’d like to find out more about Anthony and tell him why you think AC/DC matters – check out his website.
