You gotta love Brian Johnson. Plucked from (relative) obscurity by AC/DC in 1980 to replace Bon Scott (R.I.P.), Johnson and the band then recorded Back in Black, the second most successful album in history, just behind Thriller by What's His Face. Johnson – who maybe stands five feet five inches tall – also hasn't changed his shirt, taken off his hat or had to learn a new song in nearly 25 years. What a life.
On this week's Star in a Reasonably Priced Car, Jezza puts Johnson through the usual paces before we quickly learn that Mr. Gets Knocked Out By American Thighs is a serious gearhead. How serious? He drives a 1920s Bentley 4.5-liter to get the newspaper. That's class. And once in Moscow he micturated on Sputnik. That's a different sort of class. Oh, and it turns out that Mr. Johnson is quite a talented driver. How talented? You're going to have to jump and find out.
