If Brian Johnson is ready to come back, who will AC/DC choose? — Axl, Brian or both?
Guitar World has published an article stating that Brian Johnson has reported that he is ready go back onstage after finding a solution to alleviate his problems with his hearing.
Excerpts from the article from Guitar World published today are as follows:
Longtime AC/DC singer Brian Johnson reports that he’s ready to go back onstage after testing a new in-ear monitor that delivers louder and better sound while minimizing the risk of hearing damage.
The device is based on a new technology called the Ambrose Diaphonic Ear Lens (ADEL). Developed by Stephen Ambrose, ADEL filters sounds to produce high-quality audio across the frequency spectrum. ADEL distinguishes between static pressure and sound pressure and removes the static pressure, producing a higher quality listening experience and minimizing damage.
In May, Ambrose released a video about ADEL in which he presented an open message to Johnson, inviting him to try the device. “Please don’t stop performing,” Ambrose said. “Help is on the way.”
Upon learning of ADEL, Johnson scheduled a meeting with Ambrose. The device still needs to be miniaturized, but Johnson was satisfied that it will allow him to perform again. He released the following statement on Ambrose’s Facebook page:
“It WORKS. It just totally works and you can’t argue with that. I was really moved and amazed to be able to hear music again like I haven’t heard for several years now. I can’t wait for it to be mini[a]turized so I can use it in every situation from normal communication, going out to noisy restaurants, to performing live music on stage.”
The question that remains is what does AC/DC do if Johnson is ready to come back and when Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose has done what has to be deemed a remarkable and fantastic job stepping in for Johnson. AC/DC would be placed in a difficult position of staying loyal to their long-time frontman Johnson who turns 69 in October of this year compared or of forging ahead with the much younger Rose who is only 54 years old.
