AC/DC’s Brian Johnson reveals in memoir he ‘wouldn’t have minded’ dying at 180 mph
After a number of years of living near the speed of light, Brian Johnson returned to the earth in 1995 and drove for a number of years without a roof above his head because he could not afford an apartment.
“After years of living in a house with air conditioning, it was a relief to find an apartment with no air conditioning,” Johnson said in his memoir, Go: Back to the Future, he wrote last week.
Johnson said his daily drive through the Chicago area was a “pleasure to get to and to see.
“I would not have minded dying at 180 mph,” he told host Chris Harrison.
Johnson, who was best known for his role as the voice of the “Bruiser” in the Transformers franchise, said his first instinct when he got behind the wheel again was “to get my ass as far away from it as I possibly can.”
Johnson said he got his own apartment, but he “would not have minded getting into another car.”
“This is an exciting time in the history of the world. The world was not ready for what I wanted.”
Go: Back to the Future will hit Amazon’s Kindle store next week. Johnson is also preparing a movie based on the first film in the franchise, which also starred Michael J. Fox and T.J. Simms. In the film, a new member of the Autobots named Rodimus Prime will be introduced to the world.
“The real secret of the past was not that we sped, but that we were able to take the car into space and the past came back to us,” Johnson said in a video interview.
Johnson said he would love to do another Transformers film, “but if they’re doing something that is truly different and new and I don’t think anybody’s going to take [the first film] as being a part of the future then maybe I got a chance.”
