AC/DC Singer To Guest On 'Caffeine Bomb'

AC/DC singer Brian Johnson will guest on next week's edition of "Caffeine Bomb". Tune in at 7:00 p.m. EST on Monday, May 7 to 91.7 FM WHUS in Eastern Connecticut, also streaming at whus.org/listen-live.

"Caffeine Bomb" is hosted by Roger Lotring, an author and freelance music journalist whose work has appeared in the pages of Metal Hammer, Metal Edge, Classic Rock, Prog, Revolver, Shock Wave, Zero and Burn!!! magazines, and at ESPN.com and CMJ.com.

Roger is the co-author of "Full Metal Jackie Certified: The 50 Most Influential Heavy Metal Songs Of The '80s And The True Stories Behind Their Lyrics". He is also the author of various CD liner notes, including the MÖTLEY CRÜE box set "Music to Crash Your Car To, Volume 2".

91.7 WHUS is a commercial-free college and community-based radio station broadcasting from the University of Connecticut.

Johnson recently stated that he was hoping AC/DC would return to the studio later this year to begin work on the follow-up to the hugely successful 2008 album "Black Ice".

During a January 2012 appearance on "The Cowhead Show", the American radio program hosted by Mike "Cowhead" Calta, Johnson revealed that health issues were affecting one of his bandmates, which may have put new album plans temporarily on hold. "One of the boys is a little sick and I can't say anything, but he's getting better," Brian said. "He's doing wonderful. Full recovery fully expected."

The singer added, "It's a wonderful thing when we get in a room. Whenever the boys get back together, I get all excited. The boys, after a while, pick the guitars up, Phil [Rudd] will make his way to the drums, Cliff [Williams] will pull his bass out and then all of a sudden this noise comes out and I sit there with just this big old grin on my face."
