(Rock News Desk) AC/DC singer Brian Johnson says he began wearing his trademark cap because he didn't want to be recognized doing a day job after he fell from fame in 1976.

Four years before he replaced Bon Scott in what would become the biggest rock band in the world, Johnson found himself broke and unemployed following his departure from Newcastle outfit Geordie.

The band had enjoyed four top-twenty hits including All Because of You, which reached number six in 1973 so when Johnson found himself working as a windshield fitter he didn't want anyone to connect him with his previous success. more on this story
