AC/DC is the greatest band in the world. Period.
So, you can imagine how exciting it was to see them live at the Tacoma Dome on February 2, 2016. It was amazing and easily the best concert I have ever been to.
But, upon hearing today that lead singer Brian Johnson can no longer perform because he will go deaf was heartbreaking. Not AC/DC. Not the greatest band ever.
What made me angry was that the band is looking for a new singer. Let’s get this straight: Hiring Johnson to replace Bon Scott was a fluke. It doesn’t happen that a and finds another great singer that can leave his own legacy.
AC/DC finding a new singer at this point in their career will alienate fans. I, for one, don’t think I can get behind a new singer. Any other band but AC/DC.
This leaves only one option: It’s time for AC/DC to retire. Malcolm Young is already out of the band, and Phil Rudd is too (although Chris Slade is a better drummer). That leaves only Angus Young and Cliff Williams from the 1980-present lineup.
AC/DC needs to end their career before they destroy it and lose their identify.
