Brian Johnson Readies for Daytona
As Brian Johnson readies for Daytona, he and his team were out in force today rallying support for their cause, and it's a good one - for Brian is hoping to raise $1m for the families affected by pediatric cancer.
Earlier today he had a cracking interview with WYGM-AM - 740 the Game's 'Open Mike' whereby host Mike Bianchi and Brian Fritz asked Brian if AC/DC would consider performing at the Super Bowl. Johnson replied that AC/DC had been approached however, AC/DC would not perform unless the show was performed "live" and could last for one hour.
Johnson was also asked what he thought about Steven Tyler's recent performance of the National Anthem at the New England Patriots game to which Johnson responded that he would not himself consider undertaking such a performance.
When asked about AC/DC, Johnson said that he missed the guys and that he hoped to be in the studio to record AC/DC's next album before the summer.
However, in a later interview, Brian said that one of the band members is or has recently been sick, although he was unable to say anymore, except that a full recovery was expected.
To donate, call the fundraiser which is called "Highway to Help," and is a takeoff of AC/DC's iconic "Highway to Hell" song.
Throughout the race, which starts at 3:30 p.m. Saturday January 28th, fans may text "ACDC" or 2232 to 501501 to donate $10 to the Austin Hatcher Foundation.
The race team has set up a Facebook page at hatcherfoundation.org/highwaytohelp and a Twitter account, @austinhatcherfo, to keep fans updated as the race progresses.
Brian is doing four stints during the race with his first starting at around 7-8pm on Saturday. Good luck Brian! oooooaaaaargh....
