The joining of rock ’n’ roll royalty took place at Fleetwood’s restaurant, named Fleetwood’s On Front St. in the drummer’s home of Maui, Hawaii.
After Fleetwood introduced the AC/DC singer to a surprised crowd, Johnson took to the mic to say it was a “a big honour” to join his idol on stage. Mispronouncing his name as “Flick Meetwood”, Johnson joked that he was “breaking these teeth in for a friend”.
The pair then played the 1940s track to the lucky, intimate audience.
Last year, Brian Johnson was forced to retire from touring due to hearing problems. Guns ’N Roses’ Axl Rose then joined AC/DC as a guest vocalist – though it was reported last month that he’ll continue touring and recording with the band.
Malcolm Young died in November last year, after suffering from dementia. The illness had caused him to retire from working with AC/DC in 2014.
Meanwhile, Fleetwood Mac were recently honoured as MusicCares Person of The Year. They were the first band to receive the award.
During the ceremony, the band took to the stage to perform the classic ‘Rumours’ track ‘The Chain’ with Harry Styles – while Haim, Lorde and more paid tribute with covers from their decade-spanning back catalogue.
