If you’re worried about Brian Johnson staying busy after leaving AC/DC, don’t; he’s doing just fine, and this video proves it. Johnson, 70, was spotted in Maui this week hanging out at Fleetwood’s On Front Street, a restaurant owned by Mick Fleetwood (yes, that Mick Fleetwood). He wasn’t just there to dine and dash, though – not by a long shot!
One lucky fan managed to catch a glimpse of what Johnson’s been up to in the two years since leaving AC/DC, filming him as he hit the stage with Fleetwood for a rousing rendition of “(Get Your Kicks On) Route 66” and surprising an audience full of fans who’d only expected to see Mick.
Though you’ll likely never see him with AC/DC again, this is a pretty good indication of where Brian’s headed these days. The last two years have been well spent in the studio with friends and have even included a few brief live performances like this, as if to remind us that he’s still here and doesn’t plan on going anywhere, any time soon.
What exactly does the future hold for Brian Johnson? Only time will tell. In the meantime, though, we’re happy to relive his magic in performances like the one just below this video. Enjoy!
