Malcolm Young’s dementia prevented him from recording Rock Or Bust with the fellas…and ultimately, from continuing on as a member of AC/DC. But these rockers are a band of brothers, blood or otherwise – and Brian Johnson recently proved it.
Johnson reached out to a British dementia charity, offering support – and gave the staff a HUGE surprise. “It’s an absolutely amazing boost for a charity run by two people to receive a phone call from the singer of a group that has sold more than 200 million records worldwide,” said charity director Tony Jameson-Allen.
The charity, Sporting Memories Network, “uses sports stories to engage older people, and in particular men, suffering from dementia, and involve them in groups which improve their physical and mental wellbeing” (via Metal Hammer).
Johnson’s gesture won’t go unappreciated; the charity is currently in need of funding.
Rock Or Bust drops December 2nd and features the lead single “Play Ball.”
