According to Jim Breuer, Brian Johnson of AC/DC was “kicked to the curb” after reports surfaced that he’d be unable to complete their current tour.
During an edition of Jim’s The Metal in Me podcast, he said he visited with Johnson. “From what I gather, and I don’t have all the information, I only hear certain sides here. He said that he called and let them know, ‘Hey this is what the doctor said, but let’s try to figure this out. Let’s see what’s going on here, I don’t think it’s as bad as he said it is.’ Literally the next day in the press, it was ‘Brian Johnson, tour canceled, he’s losing his hearing.’”
Breuer continued, “Then he’s like, ‘You know what? I would really like to finish and do some shows. I think we can knock this out.’ Then all his luggage that he toured with showed up at his driveway. There’s been no calls. No, ‘How’s your hearing? How’s your health? What’s going on?’”
What do you think is going on? Was Brian Johnson mistreated by AC/DC? I doubt it.
