In March of 2016, Brian Johnson left AC/DC after doctors told him he was facing total hearing loss if he continued to perform. In a recent interview with The Sunday Times, he said: “On stage, it was getting harder and harder to hear the guitars, even hear the keys, and I was basically going on muscle memory.”
He added, “And I’m not the kind of guy who likes to cheat. The way I look at it, I had a great run.”
After 36 years with AC/DC, Johnson had to leave mid-tour and Axl Rose stepped in to cover the remaining dates.
