Brian Johnson

"And talking of Brian Johnson. Best wishes to Brian."

"AC/DC have had to cancel their US tour because Brian's hearing is in such a bad state that he's in danger of losing it permanently. Which is every musicians worst nightmare."

"I spoke with Brian on the phone. Both Leppard and AC/DC were in Australia about two or three months ago. He was gonna come down and visit but doctors said no, you can't be near any loud noises for a couple of weeks. So it's been an ongoing situation but let's really hope that it's a temporary one and he's back with AC/DC real soon."
