Former AC/DC vocalist Brian Johnson returned to the stage at the weekend, joining Robert Plant and Paul Rodgers at the latter’s gig in Oxford on Sunday night (May 14).
Johnson joined the pair for a rendition of Barrett Strong track ‘Money (That’s What I Want)’. Watch footage below. It’s the first time Johnson has performed live since quitting AC/DC last year.
Johnson was the frontman of AC/DC from 1980, when he joined following the death of Bon Scott, to 2016, when he was forced to quit the band on recommendation of his doctor or risk total hearing loss. Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose filled in on the band’s remaining shows for the year.
