Ex-AC/DC Singer Brian Johnson Returns to Stage for First Time with Paul Rodgers and Robert Plant

Brian Johnson, formerly lead singer of AC/DC has been keeping things pretty tame since in March of 2016 he was forced to leave his long time band due to complications with his hearing. He has appeared on one or two studio releases from friends, but has done nothing substantial musically aside from that - until now. On May 14th Johnson made a triumphant return to the stage as a guest singer during a Paul Rodgers concert in Oxford, England.

To sweeten the pot, former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant also joined the fray to perform the 1959 Barrett Strong classic Money. Johnson definitely sounds and looks great. He seemed in good spirits and as much of the charismatic performer as he ever was. Plant was also sounding and looking great as well. He looked like he was having a lot of fun.

Whether or not this means Johnson will be returning to AC/DC or live performing regularly remains to be seen. Johnson is always working on more ways to get his hearing fixed. Regardless of what happens, it's great to see him still doing what he loves. The three performers definitely sounded great together. You can view most of the performance in the video above.
