This was one of Brian Johnson's last shows with AC/DC:

You can tell that he isn't well.

Wow. Goddamn. He is in no shape to be singing. Axl took him to school big time on Thunderstruck. The AC/DC fans bitching about Axl joining must have been more deaf than Brian is.

I could sing that better than him and I cant sing worth a shit.

1:42- 2:02

Tour should've stopped right after that.

I don't think Brian sounds too bad there, really, for his age and circumstance. I will give him the benefit of the doubt until the end because there is no guarantee he didn't just have an off night. No matter how he sounds, 20 000+ real fans would show up, so it's moot.

But, I'll tell you this, when I saw AC/DC in Winnipeg in September, 2015, they were fucking on spot amazing.

I think Axl is kicking ass fronting Ac/Dc but lets not start taking shots at Brian he was already deaf when that video was taken and he has been amazing for decades now.

The man is also FOURTEEN YEARS older than Axl.

Tell me how Axl will go singing it in 2030 ?

This is how Brian did at the start of the tour when he was the age axl will be in 1.5 decades from now or so

He sounds better in that Grammy video than a lot of the 2009 River Plate show. Seems he has had plenty of ups and downs over the years, regardless of age.

Axl is the same way. Ups and downs. Wouldn't surprise me if a 67-68 year old Axl sounds better than he did with some of the Mickey Mouse disasters in the Chinese D touring era.

Yeah guys, like I said, Brian was awesome in Winnipeg September of last year. Let's pay respect instead of digging graves. There's enough of that out there. We're supposed to be those who appreciate the ol' boys and are better than that.

Axl should have retired at Rio, 2011... Come on James, you know better than this. Brian usually always delivered for the past 36 years.

I did not post that video to mock Brian but rather to showcase how his lack of hearing and subsequent pain was clearly starting to affect him.

It is a crying shame. I feel very sorry for him.

The guy is a living legend who deserves a better ending than the one he has seemingly been given.
