Is this for real? It has been reported that AC/DC singer Brian Johnson has confirmed the rumors that he is back with the band and currently recording a new album, this is according to the Los Angeles band Terrorizer.
It was during AC/DC’s last tour that Johnson was forced to leave because of the risk of permanent hearing loss from touring. As we now know, Johnson was famously replaced by Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose for the band’s last trek.
The rumors that he may have been going back to the band first started last summer when the band was spotted at a recording studio in Vancouver, Canada. The same studio where the band had recorded their most recent albums.
Up till now the AC/DC camp had been pretty quiet about the whole affair but the band Terrorizer shared the following message via social media this week: “We ran into Brian Johnson from ACDC at the airport today after the flight home and we asked him about the rumors of him being on the new ACDC album and he said ‘Yes’ and that he is ‘Sick of denying it’. So that was a cool surprise ending to the tour.”
Although unconfirmed, we can’t help but feel that it’s just a matter of time before we’ll be seeing Johnson fronting one of the greatest rock bands of all time.
