Brian Francis Johnson (born 5 October 1947) is an English singer and songwriter.

He and the rest of the band were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. In March 2016, Johnson stepped down from touring on the Rock or Bust World Tour due to hearing problems. On 20 May 2016, Johnson stated in an interview, "I've had a pretty good run" in AC/DC and implied that he might not be returning by saying, "I'm just thankful, really, that I came out of it in one piece.


People are famous for being famous and for nothing else. And good luck to them, because it lasts about a year and then they're nothing again.




I used to have the Range Rover LR3, which I loved very, very much.




I have my 1973 Citroen DS 23 Pallas. I drive it all the time. It's still the most beautiful shape in the world.




Where I lived, it was a cold mining place, a village called Dunston. The only time you saw a Rolls-Royce was when somebody died.




When I was in school, I used to look out the window and see the big red double-deck buses driving by. It just looked so free.
