During a recent conversation between former Queen singer Paul Rodgers and AC/DC singer Brian Johnson, Paul has revealed the special advise he got from AC/DC’s late guitarist Malcolm Young.

Brian Johnson said:

“It takes a man with big cojones to turn to Queen and say: “Yeah, I’ll take it on, come on bring it on.” How did that feel? Was it tough or did you just have a ball and just say: “I’m not gonna do what Freddie [Mercury] did?””

Paul Rodgers responded:

“Well it was all of the above but we had a ball as well. You know and going into it I had read an interview that you had done actually, when you had first joined AC/DC.”

Brian:

“Yep.”

Paul:

“You said you were very nervous the first show.”

Brian:

“Yes I was.”

Paul:

“Malcolm [Young] had said to you: “Look, just go on there and be yourself.””

Brian:

“Yep.”

Paul:

“I read that and I thought: “That’s so wise that’s the best advice anybody ever gave anybody.” I took that to heart actually when I did the Queen thing because that’s the only thing I could do – was be myself. I wasn’t gonna try and be Freddie.”
