AC/DC's Angus Young denies Brian Johnson was fired
AC/DC guitarist Angus Young recently talked about Brian Johnson, you can read some excerpts below.
He said: "You get a lot of rumors out there; a lot of people think Brian was fired. But that's not the case. It was mainly his hearing. He already had a very bad ear, and the good ear that he had left was dropping rapidly. I mean, it was an ongoing [issue]… all the way pretty much through the tour from the beginning."
Angus added that the decision to have Brian replaced for the upcoming tour "was out of our hands," insisting that "it was Brian's call what he felt" the best way to proceed was.
"We wouldn't win in a lot of situations because if we just stopped, there would have been a lot of people unhappy."
