New information has surfaced recently, which claims that Brian Johnson was “kicked to the curb” by AC/DC. Johnson said that his hearing loss was blown out of proportion.
The new information comes by way of comedian Jim Breuer who is a longtime friend of Brian Johnson. During the latest episode of his podcast, he spoke about the situation between Johnson and AC/DC.
Breuer spoke about a conversation he had with Johnson “He said that he called and let [the band] know, ‘Hey this is what the doctor said, but let’s try to figure this out.”
He continued “Johnson didn’t say he wanted to quit. He didn’t say he was done. He called with that information, and two days later, he read in the papers and heard on Twitter and everywhere else.”
Breuer spoke about how Johnson was disappointed with news reports “Brian Johnson going deaf, canceling tour.’ then a day later, and it was ‘Oh, we’re gonna have guest singers.”
All the more worrying is that according to Breuer, AC/DC didn’t contact Johnson after they heard the news. Breuer said “There’s been no calls. No, ‘How’s your hearing? How’s your health? What’s going on?’ Boom. Here’s your shit, nice to know you.’”
