AC/DC’s former front man Brian Johnston is hosting his own show. Johnson was forced to leave the band due to health reasons. He was replaced by Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose last March on the band’s recent ‘Rock Or Bust’ tour for U.S. and European dates after he was ordered by doctors to stop touring or face permanent hearing loss. He has since been working with specialists on a possible solution. According to Rolling Stone, he met with Stephen Ambrose, an in-ear technology specialist, and is hopeful that his work will improve his hearing loss. It seem Johnson has now turned his attention to TV. Sky Arts announced the new TV series titled Brian Johnson's Life On The Road which will see the rocker interview a host of big names from the world of rock and metal, with the first episode featuring The Who’s Roger Daltrey scheduled to air on April 28.
On this day in 1969, Led Zeppelin appeared at the Bluesville 69 Club at the Hornsey Wood Tavern, Finsbury Park, London, England. The tiny venue was a function room at the back of the pub, and was so small that the stage was only just big enough for John Bonham’s drums. The rest of the group had to stand on the floor at the same level as the crowd. It was in stark contract to the massive arena concerts the band would go on to play. Page suggested that they attempt “Train Kept A-Rollin”, originally a jump blues song popularised in a rockabilly version by Johnny Burnette, which had been covered by the Yardbirds.
