We already brought you part one of this list of facts about Brian Johnson, the replacement vocalist for AC/DC, who joined the band back in 1980. The band is, impressively, still together to this day! Here is the second part of our list of facts about the lead singer.

Number Eight: Brian Johnson Stays in Touch With His Roots

Although nowadays he lives in Florida, he hasn’t forgotten Great Britain, his homeland. He returns to England at least four times per year to visit his family and friends and catch up over a pint.

Number Seven: The Haggis Incident

In the front man’s biography, he tells of many stories. In one chapter, Johnson tried to boil haggis in an electric kettle on the AC/DC tour bus. The results ended up splattered all over the walls.

Number Six: You Have to Do What You Do

He believes that you must do what you’re meant for. Otherwise, you will die inside as he says he would if he didn’t continue with what he does. He’d have nothing.

Number Five: A Bottled Tan

When a random person asked Johnson whether his browned forearms represented a tan from California or Florida, he said it was neither. “It’s a tan from a bottle,” he answered.

Number Four: Not Dental Rock

Brian has talked about the musical style of the band and has said that it’s not dental rock. If there’s a hole, you don’t fill it. The holes are necessary to create the swing of the music.

Number Three: Thoughts on Retiring

“Well, I’m 62, but I have to sing like I was 32,” he cackles when I float the idea. “People have been talking about it, but it’s not me that wants to retire. I’ll go as long as I keep going, but I only have one gear as a singer.”

Number Two: If He Could See Himself Now…

He’s said that if he could go back in time to his 30s and look at himself now, he’d think he looked really old. He’d call for someone to remove that old man from the stage immediately.

Number One: Highway to Hell

This classic song opened up the doors for the band in America. Johnson says they didn’t promote it at all, and rather, gained popularity through playing live. Thanks for reading part two of our list!
