AC/DC Should Just Stop Instead Of Replacing Brian Says Anthrax Star

(New Rock Times) AC/DC should either bring in Angry Anderson or simply 'just stop' if Brian Johnson is forced to hang up the mic says Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian. Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose has been heavily rumored to be at the top of Angus Young's wishlist to step in for Johnson who is reportedly struggling with hearing issues.

In an interview with Brazilian media he says:: "My personal opinion is, without Brian at this point, I think they should just stop. Why? Why? You're AC/DC. I don't think they need the money. It would be pretty hard to imagine that they still are out there working because they need money. But who am I to say? It's just my opinion. But I wish… If Brian is done, then I wish the band would stop. That's just my personal, sh*tty opinion.

"Anytime your heroes are not doing what they do anymore, it sucks," he sighs. "But I understand it too, at the same time. I don't wanna see my favorite band trying to be on stage when they're eighty years old and not being able to perform anymore. It was hard to watch Lemmy at the end. We played a whole bunch of shows with Motorhead in September of last year in the States, and then we did the Motörboat cruise with them again. And it was great to see them, but at the same time, you can't help but think, 'Lemmy really… he shouldn't be on stage anymore. He's having a hard time.'

"But you can't argue. 'Cause Lemmy wanted to be there. No one was forcing him to play shows. He wanted to be on stage; that was his life. But as a fan, you know, you just can't help but think, 'Goddamn, he should just go home and play the f***ing slot machines and just relax for a few years now. He's worked hard enough.' But that's what he loved to do, so you can't argue with that." Read more here.
