Brian Johnson Pays Tribute To Bon Scott
"I think he embodied everything that was fun, everything that was like 'never say die, live life to the full,'" Brian Johnson tells USA Today. "And he had a terrible thing happen to him when he passed on. He wasn't a wild, wild, wild man — he was just as wild as the other boys were. He was just unlucky. We've all done stupid, dumb things where we're young, but we got away with it. He didn't. It was just one of them stupid things that shouldn't have happened, and it was accidental and it was stupid. And I just won't have a bad word said against him. We still talk about him like he's a member of the band in the dressing room."
Brian's comments came during a book-signing stop last week in the New York area, as he promotes his new book, "Rockers And Rollers: A Full Throttle Memoir," which details Johnson's history and lifelong love affair with cars.
