Today 1980, Brian Johnson Gets That AC/DC Gig

It wasn't officially announced till April 1st, but today March 29th in 1980, Angus & Malcolm Young told Brian Johnson he was in, as AC/DC's new lead singer. Bon Scott had died just 2 months earlier and the guys had considered breaking up the band. But Brian Johnson must have given one helluva performance during his audition, because Angus & Malcolm decided to keep on going, with this new guy from Northern England, Brian, who sure could scream convincingly.
