BRIAN JOHNSON Can't Answer Any Questions About AC/DC's Future

"I've been told not to by everybody. It's the official line."

Brian Johnson

AC/DC vocalist Brian Johnson refused to answer any questions about the future of the band in a December 19 interview with Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk. When asked if he and AC/DC will ever get back together on stage, Johnson answered "I'm not answering that. Why should I? First of all, there's five members in this band, and to ask one member isn't fair."

Trunk then asked Johnson if he'd like to get back on stage with the band for the first time since 2016, to which he responded "Eddie, I cannot answer that. I've been told not to by everybody. It's the official line."

Johnson has not played a show with AC/DC since February 2016, and was replaced by Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose for the remainder of that year's tour. AC/DC went on hiatus at the end of 2016 and eventually, quietly reunited with Johnson for the 2020 album Power Up.

Trunk then changed gears to discuss the possibility of another AC/DC record, and Johnson wasn't having it. "It's gettin' tabloidy here," he said. You're gettin' tabloidy."

"If I say one thing, it'll be blown out of all proportion. You just can't afford to talk now. There's too much blabber on the Internet. And I'm not on any kind of Face-thing or social media at all — never have been. It's just gossip."

The other major change AC/DC underwent in the past decade was the departure of guitarist Malcolm Young in 2014. Young would eventually pass away due to complications from dementia in 2017, and has been filled in for by his nephew Stevie Young.

Obviously Johnson's silence doesn't really mean anything. It could just be that the band has a statement coming up and they don't want anyone saying anything prior, or he's just not the guy that's allowed to talk to the press about the band. Who knows. Though one thing is for absolute certain – if it does turn out that AC/DC is done, could we have asked for anything more than what they've given to rock?
