Manager Thought AC/DC Wanted To Fire Bon Scott

(Sub) Former AC/DC bassist Mark Evans recently sat down with Ultimate Classic Rock to discuss his acclaimed new insider account of life in the band, Dirty Deeds: My Life Inside/Outside of AC/DC (Bazillion Points). Detailing his work on five early albums including Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Evans reveals that his 1977 dismissal from the band came as a complete surprise to longtime AC/DC manager Michael Browning:

Evans says: "To the point of me being sacked from the band, when Angus and Malcolm called Michael Browning to a meeting the night before I got sacked, Michael told me the next day he assumed it was going to be Bon who was fired. These days you look back, you think that's preposterous. The way it was abrupt, that's the way the guys are-Angus and Malcolm. I don't think it's any real revelation that they can make some very strong and sudden decisions."

Mark Evans' gripping first-ever memoir of life in the classic AC/DC band includes countless tales of life on the road and at home with Bon Scott, Angus Young, Malcolm Young, and Phil Rudd, as the band rose from the barrooms of Australia to the palatial theaters of Paris, London, and Stockholm.
