AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson discussed health issues he has had throughout his life in a new Dan Rather interview, including being told he may die from pneumonia, and a doctor later telling him he suffered lung damage singing with AC/DC. Alternative Nation transcribed his remarks on AXS TV. Brian Johnson made a disturbing cancer remark yesterday.
“The next thing I knew I was getting injections on the backside. We had a wonderful doctor, I remember that night I was lying there and my Mom and Dad were on the bed, so I knew it had to be something bad.
He leaned down, and he knew I was a car fanatic, and he said, ‘If you are a good boy and you make it through the night, I’m going to take you for a ride in my Rover.’ I dreamt of driving one of them, and he did, he kept his promise. It took two months to get back on my feet. It was a shaky time.” Brian Johnson broke his silence on AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd a couple of days ago.
He later discussed performing with Angus Young in AC/DC, who he is rumored to reunite with for a new album and tour next year, “I found out that I had an inner strength that I didn’t think I had. I was short, but I was fast, and kind of good at sports. Even right through the time with AC/DC, where I was singing these long concerts, I always suffered from lung damage, but I never thought about it. Not to get too poetic, but it helped to fight through. I just knew I could do it.” Brian Johnson’s status as AC/DC singer was revealed a few days ago.
