Brian Johnson Is 65

Poor Brian Johnson! Even though he is in part responsible for the second best-selling album of all time, he will still be, to a certain set, "not Bon Scott." But you know what? I bet he's made his peace with it. Also, he is probably not actually poor. Anyway, happy birthday Brian Johnson. Is it terrible of me to admit that this is my favorite song of AC/DC's not Bon Scott era? Probably. (Also of note: Both Dr. No, the first real Bond movie, and "Love Me Do," the first Beatles single, were both released today fifty years ago.)

"For those about to rock! Put a nice comfy cushion on the chair, first."

And "Whole Lotta Rosie," with Bon, is the winner here.

Do we all know about his musical theater career?

And, I humbly nominate "Flick Of The Switch" as his best. I don't play the "Bon vs Brian" game, because they are/were both great. I'm just glad that AC/DC was able to keep going with an excellent singer after Bon's death.
