Might as well fuck it all up at this point, yes.

Fuck Angus for shitting all over AC/DC. Dude's worth $50 million & is 90 years old, is he afraid of falling on hard times in his old age?



A couple websites have Angus Young at $140million net worth...

Bon had seen Brian perform with his band Geordie and gave a great review of his performance to the rest of the band. Even though I prefer the Bon Scott era songs Brian couldn't have been more perfect as a replacement for Bon. He stepped up to the microphone and the band was bigger than ever. Other than the drummer Phil Rudd leaving the band in 83 and rejoining them in 94 the rest of the band was the same up until Rudd left again in 2014.


Well said. There's a few mentally ill individuals who think they should've called it a day after Bon died, but that would be incredibly retarded. Not only were they at the peak of their form, Highway to Hell had just put them over the top, as you stated. Why the fuck would they throw THAT away.

Not only that, Brian has always been very respectful of AC/DC's history before him, while forging his own path.

There's two major mistakes replacements do - either shit all over the history of the band before them, or act too obsequious and become enslaved to that history. Brian did it right from the very start.



I've read Bon Scott idolized Brian Johnson's performing. It only made sense to give Johnson a go.

One of the things he liked about Brian's performance that night was him lying on the stage rolling around like he was in agonizing pain. It wasn't part of the act. He had appendicitis.

I got that from Brian's wiki page.
