AC/DC Finally Get Respect
When it came to writing the glowing liner comments, Bozza says he'd "been wanting to say that stuff for a long time." "I used to be the kid at Rolling Stone who would always say, 'Why aren't you putting AC/DC in the "Greatest Guitar Players of All-Time" issue?' and all that stuff," he told Ultimate Classic Rock.
"They would say, 'Would you just shut up with the AC/DC,' but I wouldn't," he added. " So, [with the liner notes and the book] I finally was completely given the chance to make the argument I've been wanting to make for a very long time."
In Bozza's eye, music critics never really respected AC/DC until now. "It just changed recently," he said. "One of the things that I wrote about in the book, on the eve of the Black Ice tour, they were suddenly getting all of that stuff. Before, they were always begrudgingly accepted." more on this story
