The book also features an introduction by Def Leppard front man Joe Elliott.

This edition features a special black laminated cover and is personally signed by AC/DC's Brian Johnson.

BIG BALLS. In 1976 AC/DC came to the UK for the first time to begin the “Lock Up Your Daughters” tour of small venues, sponsored by Sounds magazine. Photographers Dick Barnatt and Michael Putland worked closely with the band in the UK at this time, extensively shooting them onstage and off. A collection of pictures from The Nashville Rooms and the Marquee kickstarts this beautiful, limited edition, coffee table book of images from 1976 to 1981. Photographers Dick Barnatt, Michael Putland, Fin Costello, George Bodnar and Martyn Goddard have opened their archives to provide these amazing visual essays of the band between 1976 and 1981, culminating in the headlining performance at the second Monsters of Rock festival at Castle Donington in front of a crowd of 85,000 fans. 

Renowned rock journalist and fan Howard Johnson provides an extensive essay of the bands rise in the United Kingdom during this formative, explosive period of AC/DC’s amazing career.

Both books perfectly compliment each other and are presented here in a beautiful black aluminium slipcase.
