The episode airs on October 13, in the United States. A video published by the channel, however, shows a little bit of the show and some of the conversation between the two music legends.
“You have to remember, our musical roots were so much more at AC/DC, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin. We were much more about blues and rock. We started playing a little faster as we progressed [in career].”
“Playing with you on this tour in 1991, which was the last time we actually opened for anyone, was like being in paradise, having a chance to be around you and watch you every night for six weeks.”
In the next few episodes, Johnson will still receive names like Pink Floyd’s Nick Manson, Joe Walsh, Paul Rodgers and Mick Fleetwood.
“Well there’s literally nothing you can do about it, it’s like being shot on the battlefield, it’s just your turn. The lonely feeling, a lot of it is self-inflicted. For me, I’ll be quite honest with you, I went in my office and buried my head in a bottle of whiskey, good whiskey.
At the time, in 2016, the musician explained in a press release at the time that it was the threat of “total deafness”, not his former bandmates, that forced him out of AC/DC.
After receiving the news, Johnson revealed that he had exaggerated in whiskey.
