In a conversation with the Eagles icon Joe Walsh on his radio show, AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson talked about the status of the band members during the lockdown days and shared an update on the guitarist Angus Young‘s state of health.
As you might recall, the members of the iconic rock band AC/DC suffered from various health problems over the course of many years. During the Rock or Bust World Tour, their frontman Brian Johnson was urged by his doctors to stop touring otherwise he could be facing a total hearing loss.
While the fans desperately waiting for a new album from the band, Brian Johnson joined a conversation with the Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh on his radio show named ‘Joe Walsh Old Fashioned Rock and Roll Radio Show‘ and revealed the current status of each member of AC/DC.
During the interview, Brian talked about how challenging the lockdown days had been for them as they couldn’t spend much time dealing with their music. Johnson also stated that he spent time with AC/DC’s co-founder and lead guitarist Angus Young and his wife Ella. According to Brian’s statements, Angus Young had been staying safe and doing well during the self-quarantine days.
Furthermore, the AC/DC icon mentioned even though he and Angus spent a lot of time together, they were mostly talking about making scones at home instead of creating new music.
Here’s Brian Johnson’s statement about the current health condition of Angus Young:
“Actually, it’s the craziest thing. Angus’s wife, Ella, she loves to cook. And that’s what we were talking about — how to make scones. It had nothing to do with music. And Angus is safe and well. And so is Phil.”
Additionally, Johnson shared information about how other members of the band spent their days during the lockdown and mentioned how much he missed creating music and performing live by stating:
“Cliff is up in the mountains of North Carolina… Cliff’s a huntin’ and shootin’ and fishin’ man. And I don’t know where Stevie is. He’s somewhere.
I think it’s made us realize how much we took for granted. When you’ve gone to a gig or something and you hear somebody hit that guitar, like your good self, and just knock the snot out of it and you just get that shiver down your back. Now when you hear a band start up, hearing the live music — I think that’s a big miss for everybody.”
