It’s the first of our weekly Jim Kerr Throwback Thursday interview series!
Brian Johnson visited Jim and Shelli on May 24, 2011 to discuss his autobiography, Rockers and Rollers: A Full-Throttle Memoir.
Johnson’s lifelong passion for automobiles is the only thing that rivals his love of rock. Johnson tells the story of how a mysterious phone call at his auto specialty garage in the late ‘70s would change his life forever.
After so many adventures with AC/DC and beyond, the cars involved seem to be the one thing Johnson can remember in detail! Brian get into the specific classic cars he loves as well as the transcendent first time he ever won a race.
Brian is a blast here- very animated as he recalls the international characters he’s encountered. Plus there are some sweet recollections from his childhood, a side we don’t often see from him. The entire time he keeps it completely clean too- no curses! Listen to the whole conversation below.
