AC/DC lead singer Brian Johnson hosted hundreds in Chattanooga, Tennessee Friday night (November 21) for an event at the Embassy Suites for the Alzheimer’s Federation Of Chattanooga. The disease hits close to home for Brian Johnson as founding AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young is diagnosed with dementia and is being treated in an aged care facility in Sydney.
“He was the man that started the band, he was the one that was behind AC/DC. He was our spiritual leader. He was our spitfire,” Johnson tells NewsChannel.com.
Rock or Bust will be the band’s first album without founding member and rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, who left the band in 2014 for health reasons. His replacement on the album and the band’s upcoming world tour will be Stevie Young, nephew of Malcolm and Angus Young.
