Former AC/DC bassist Mark Evans spoke about his book, “Dirty Deeds: My Life Inside/Outside AC/DC”, on the latest edition of “Heady Metal With Jeff Olson”, the Internet radio show hosted by original TROUBLE drummer and current RETRO GRAVE mainman Jeff “Oly” Olson. You can listen to the chat using the audio player below.
Evans joined AC/DC in 1975 and remained with them through their barroom days, their first international tours, and the majority of the Bon Scott-era albums: “High Voltage”, “Dirty Deeds Done Dirty Cheap”, “T.N.T.”, “Let There Be Rock”, and the U.S.-only ’74 “Jailbreak” collection-recordings that have since sold in excess of 10 million copies in the U.S. alone.
At nineteen years old in 1975, Evans joined AC/DC, one of the hardest-working and loudest barroom bands in Australia. His memoir, “Dirty Deeds: My Life Inside/Outside Of AC/DC”, dubbed “a rare ‘been there, done that’ perspective of touring with the group” by Library Journal, is a rich bounty of insight into the struggles and camaraderie that fueled hard rock’s most successful group. Evans‘s likeable stories capture the energy and essence of Malcolm Young, Angus Young, Phil Rudd, and the late Bon Scott. Encounters with rock and roll icons like George Harrison, Gene Simmons, Phil Lynott, BLACK SABBATH, Ahmet Ertegun and METALLICA also feature.
