AC/DC Frontman Eying Retirement was a top story in July. Here it is again as we recap 2009: Nightwatcher reports: AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson is considering retirement - because, at 61, he fears he's getting too old to rock. The band's long time vocalist has revealed he planned to quit as the Aussie rockers' singer in 2010 - 30 years after he replaced Bon Scott in the group - but his bandmates have persuaded him to rock on for another nine months, to fulfill festival commitments into 2011.
Johnson tells Classic Rock magazine, "We were talking about the end of the (current Black Ice) tour and I said, 'We're finishing in May (10) - and that's me done!'
"But Malcolm (Young) said, 'What are you talk in' about? We're not gonna let you retire!'" Johnson admits he does his best to stay in shape for tours, but he's not sure he's got what it takes to carry on. - more on this story
