AC/DC's BRIAN JOHNSON On Upcoming Tour: 'At 61, This Could Be My Last Shot'

AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson recently spoke to Edna Gundersen of USA Today about the band's forthcoming tour in support of the "Black Ice" album.

"At 61, this could be my last shot," Johnson said, but he added that the run-throughs "have been smooth as a gravy sandwich."

"I try to look after my health," he said. "I don't do a 6-mile jog. I might do a half-hour on a bike in the morning."

Johnson expressed amazement at the band's enduring appeal and credited much of its longevity to chemistry and an obsessive focus on music.

"People talk a lot about Angus and Malcolm, but that's not fair," he said. "There's more than two brothers. There are five. Malcolm, our spiritual leader, always told us to be a rock band first and a celebrity way, way after that. Stay below the radar, don't get involved in politics, stop covering yourself in glory on the stages of the world."
