Meet The Author

A few days after his nineteenth birthday, rock and roll lover Mark Evans wandered into his local to check out the band – and his life would never be the same again.  Two days later he was playing his first show as bass player with AC/DC; within a week he was on Countdown, rocking out next to wildman Bon Scott, who was dressed as a pigtailed cigarette-smoking schoolgirl – and waving a mallet – and Angus, who was, of course, decked out as a schoolboy.  And all for the princely wage of $60 a week!

Then came nearly being burnt alive on the video shoot for ‘Jailbreak’, and working with legends Vanda and Young on the massive album TNT, on which the take-no-prisoners basslines anchored such immortal hits as ‘TNT’ and ‘It’s a Long Way to the Top’.  Within a year, the band had relocated to London and were on the road to rock and roll stardom, mixing it up with such legends as Black Sabbath and making the most of all that life had to offer.

Dirty Deeds is the first book about AC/DC written from the inside, by an insider.  It is an honest, gripping, sometimes laugh-out-loud account of the band that lived fast, played hard and broke every one of the rules – before they broke all the records.  It is also a revealing and frank memoir of a man who’s had to contend with everything life has thrown at him – a rough-as-guts upbringing, lucky breaks and soaring highs, as well as terrible personal tragedy.  The hard lessons Mark has learned along the way will inspire any reader.
