The iconic member of AC/DC, Brian Johnson made a new statement on his own TV show from AXS TV this week.
As interviewing with a famous American journalist, Dan Rather, Brian admitted that he felt terrible because AC/DC was popular in Newcastle.
Here is his statements, transcribed by Alternative Nation.
“So I was living with my Mom and Dad, and they didn’t have a record player. So I went oh my god, and I phoned one of the boys from the band I was in, Derek Rootham, who was a guitarist in Geordie too, and I said, ‘You better come down, I’ve got this new album that we did, it’s called Back in Black.”
“He went, ‘Alright, is that nonsense not finished yet? We’ve got to get back together again.’ Me old band, and I felt terrible, because we were popular in Newcastle. So I took it down to him, and he went and put it on, and Hell’s Bells was the first one, and I started singing, and he went, ‘No, no, no. It’s too high, they ruined you.’
He said, ‘Oh come on, let’s go for a pint.’ And that was all I hear of it, and I thought oh jeez, everyone is going to hate it, and it’s going to end up being the complete opposite. But it was my first reaction I got from someone else, ‘Nah, it’s too high.’ We’re too high, that is.”
