Ahead of the book’s release Brian Johnson released this statement via social media.

“I’ve had some long nights and some great nights, some bad days and a lot of good days, and during that time I’ve gone from choirboy to rock’n’roll singer, and now I’ve gone and written a bloody book about it”. 

Brian Johnson was also part of a star studded line up, performing at the Taylor Hawkins Tribute show.
