AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson has said he would be “open” to writing new music with the hard rock legends.
Johnson has not performed live with the band since 2016, when he had to abandon his ‘Rock Or Bust’ tour due to hearing problems, but they released a new album ‘Power Up’ in 2020.
In a recent interview, the frontman said his bandmates told him “not to” talk about AC/DC’s future plans, but he discussed his hopes for the future in another interview with Cleveland.com.
“I would love to do music again, as a guest or playing live with the boys,” he says.
“I’ve heard a million times the phrase ‘hell freezes over’ and people say ‘I’m not going to do it again’. But I want to be willing. I think everyone hopes to do more music. But I think it is now. The next thing I want to do is get on my race car, put on my helmet and go running”.
Add Johnson: “It’s a bit like music, a bit like the start of a show: put the flag down and the nonsense stops and it’s just you and the group of people trying to go as fast as you can. I think that he’s always liked it. that element of danger.”
In a previous interview with Eddie Trunk on SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation, Johnson revealed that he is prohibited from talking about what would happen in the future. When asked if he would play with AC/DC again, he replied, “I’m not going to answer that. Why would I? First of all, there’s five members in this band, and there’s no question only fair.”
Trunk then asked him if he would personally like to get back on stage with AC/DC, to which he replied, “Eddie, I can’t answer that. Everyone told me no. That’s the line official.”
Power Up” was AC/DC’s first album since 2014’s “Rock Or Bust.” In a four-star review, NME wrote: “While far from reinventing the wheel, ‘Power Up’ is a joyous celebration . It has served them well for almost 50 years and, we can hope, will be successful in the future.”
