AC/DC singer Brian Johnson (75) can no longer do anything with modern music. In an interview with the news magazine "Der Spiegel" he presents himself as an old rocker who no longer has access to current trends. Instead, he is certain: "Rock will always remain."
In his new book, he wants to describe what it used to be like, "so that young people can learn how it all started." However, the biography "Brian's Life" is mainly about the time before he joined AC/DC in 1980 as a singer. "I would like to read the story from 1980 onwards myself, but I would never want to write it. Never! Only the musicians who have been around longer than me can do that," says Johnson. He doesn't want to write about people who are still alive and have better memories than he does.
Johnson was also able to clear up a rumor about himself in the interview: the shape of his pool. "It's awful, sometimes I'm sitting in the garden and I hear the announcements from the tour boats that go by: 'And this is Brian Johnson's house, he has a guitar-shaped pool!'" says Johnson. And further: "What the fuck? The pool is beautifully curved. It was never a guitar."
