AC/DC legend Brian Johnson has revealed that he couldn’t bring himself to see Guns N’ Roses legend Axl Rose filling in for him at the end of ‘Rock Or Bust’ tour.
In his autobiography “The Lives Of Brian”, Brian addressed the Axl Rose topic, saying: that he has never seen any of the widely circulated videos of Rose‘s performances in the band.
“I’m told that he did a great job, but I just couldn’t watch — especially when you’ve been doing it for 35 years.”
“It’s like finding a stranger in your house, sitting in your favorite chair. But I bear no grudges. It was a tough situation. [AC/DC guitarist and co-founder] Angus [Young] and the lads did what they felt they had to do. That said, after the band released a statement confirming that I was leaving the tour and wishing me all the best for the future, I couldn’t relax or concentrate on anything. It was just always there.
I’ve had some long nights and some great nights, bad days and a lot of good ones. Now I’ve gone and written a bloody book about it… The Lives of Brian is coming this October. Pre-order your copy now: https://t.co/57hrcxliZ2 pic.twitter.com/KEi6gJdpQ6
