AC/DC Cancels Shows As Johnson Is Felled By Aging Rock Star Curse

    It’s been a tough year for titans of eighties pop metal. Tommy Lee and Steven Tyler have both missed time due to injury this year, and Bret Michaels was the subject of a Phantom of the Opera worthy accident at the Tonys (which he was at why exactly?). The latest to be felled is singer Brian Johnson of AC/DC. The band was forced to postpone shows in Las Vegas, Louisville, Kansas City, Des Moines and Milwaukee so Johnson can recover from an unnamed medical procedure. This is of course the most idle of speculation, but is wrong to wonder if he finally just popped a hernia after all those years of belting out “Hell’s Bells?” Get well soon, Brian! [Rolling Stone]
