Fans of heavy metal band AC/DC have something to keep them busy - the group's frontman, Brian Johnson, recently released his autobiography, according to Titled "Rockers and Rollers: A Full Throttle Memoir," the book not only reveals details about his personal life, but also gives insight into a little known passion of Johnson's - cars.

The book is told in vignettes primarily, most of which deal with his love of all vehicles. He covers such topics as his first driving test and his passion for vintage automobiles.

"I just love cars," he told the website. "It's probably because we were born with no money, and it was always something you dreamt of when you saw it driving past - 'I wonder what it would be like to have one of them?' But it went beyond that. I just loved these things, these motor cars, these things that you could get in and do anything. You could go anywhere. It becomes personal, you know?"

Some music fans may have guessed that Johnson liked cars just by listening to the band's music - after all, one of their biggest hits was "Highway to Hell."
