So, have you ever heard of a company called Asius Technologies? If not, you can expect to as this company may just save AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson’s career. Recently, after testing a new hearing device that could potentially allow him to reunite with AC/DC Johnson said he was “amazed.”
The revolutionary device is the brainchild of Asius Technologies founder Stephen Ambrose, who invited Johnson to test it. Check out this Facebook posting:
The device works by removing static pressure and filtering audio until it is of a higher quality that is less likely to cause audible damage. Johnson’s statement on the device was this:
“It WORKS. It just totally works and you can’t argue with that. I was really moved and amazed to be able to hear music again like I haven’t heard for several years now. I can’t wait for it to be miniaturized so I can use it in every situation from normal communication, going out to noisy restaurants, to performing live music on stage.”
So this now begs the question; if the Asius device does indeed work is Johnson back in AC/DC? In our opinion, as we pointed out in a prior blog, Johnson deserves the job; simply put, he’s earned it. However, consider a recent report from NME.com where they stated that AC/DC’s current frontman–Axl Rose–is asking about possibly doing more shows beyond the current tour.
To be clear, we don’t think that the band should have moved on from Johnson so quick. The reaction to Johnson’s hearing issue appeared immediate whether it was meant to be so or not. But now, it would be nice to see the band redeem themselves of sorts and extend an invitation back to where Johnson belongs; fronting one of the greatest bands in the world.
Our friends in the NFL sometimes call situations like this a “quarterback controversy.” We don’t see it that way; instead, we know who the starter should be. Hopefully, things play out that way here for Johnson and crew. Angus, any thoughts?
