AC/DC Singer BRIAN JOHNSON Photographed With Wife In Florida

Author and concert promoter Daniel Hartwell has posted a brand new photo of AC/DC singer Brian Johnson and his wife Brenda Johnson. In the picture, which can be seen below, Brian is holding a copy of Hartwell's fictional novel "Saint John Lennon", co-written with Roseanne Bottone.

Daniel wrote in a caption accompanying the photo: "Its not everyday that you catch the singer of AC/DC reading your book! Thank you for reading my novel Brian Johnson! I have been a big fan of yours FOREVER! What an honor! I am THUNDERSTRUCK!"

When a fan asked Daniel if Johnson said something about AC/DC or the new album, Hartwell — a resident of Delray Beach, Florida — replied: "Good question. He mainly talked about being a Beatles and John Lennon fan! We have invited him to The International Beatles On The Beach Festival! He lives here in Florida now!"

Rumors of Brian's involvement with a new AC/DC record have been circulating for several months, ever since he and drummer Phil Rudd, along with guitarists Angus Young and Stevie Young, were photographed outside Vancouver's Warehouse Studios. Based on the pictures, the assumption at the time was that AC/DC was in the midst of making — or at least planning — another album, with Rudd and Johnson both back in the lineup. Online reports have also indicated Angus Young will dedicate the new AC/DC album to his late brother.

Ever since AC/DC completed the tour cycle for its 2014 album "Rock Or Bust" more than two years ago — a turbulent trek that weathered the forced retirement and eventual death of co-founder Malcolm Young, plus the departures of Johnson, Rudd and bassist Cliff Williams — fans have wondered whether sole remaining founding member Angus Young would keep the band going or decide it was time for AC/DC to pack it in.

Johnson was forced to leave AC/DC mid-tour due to a dangerous level of hearing loss, and was eventually replaced on the road by GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose, while Williams decided to retire at the end of the cycle.

Its not everyday that you catch the singer of AC/DC reading your book! Thank you for reading my novel Brian Johnson! I...
