AC/DC singer talks to Howard Stern about writing You Shook Me All Night Long

AC/DC’s Brian Johnson is doing some press in the New York area this week while he’s out promoting his new book, "Rockers And Rollers: A Full Throttle Memoir."

The book details Brian’s history - from teenage memories in the backs of beat-up coups to a side career as a racecar driver - Johnson shares his tantalizing life story in a memoir told through his lifelong love affair with cars.

The AC/DC singer is doing a few book-signings while in NYC, including his third and final one on Thursday:

Thursday, May 26
7:00 p.m.
211 E. Ridgewood AVE
Ridgewood, NJ 07450

Wednesday morning, Brian joined Howard Stern for a chat, and they – inevitably – got around to talking music. Stern asked Johnson how the band wrote their all-time classic, “You Shook Me All Night Long.”
