AC/DC fan-favorite Brian Johnson rolls into Oyster Bay, Long Island to catch up with groundbreaking entertainer Billy Joel at his motorcycle shop in an all-new episode of AXS TV’s globetrotting music series Brian Johnson’s A Life On The Road—airing Sunday, October 27 at 9pE/6pP.
In this exclusive first-look, the two friends reminisce about performing the AC/DC hit “You Shook Me All Night Long” together on stage in front of a sold out crowd at Madison Square Garden, during The Piano Man’s historic 2014 residency at the world-famous venue. “You had a room backstage that was designated your room,” Joel says, “and ever since you did that, it is still to this day known as The Brian Johnson Room. Even when we’re not there.” Johnson offers up his own charming anecdote from the night, as he remembers stumbling upon Joel while the chart-topping legend was unwinding backstage. “They said, ‘Brian, Billy’s in here’,” Johnson recalls. “They took us down this corridor, and I went, ‘Where?’ And they said, ‘He’s in this room.’ And there still wasn’t anybody there. And I was going, ‘Well, where is he?’ And then there was a curtain to the shower, and Billy was sitting behind it… having a ciggy, and he went, ‘Over here!’” Check it out here.
Brian Johnson’s A Life On The Road airs every Sunday at 9pE/6pP, only on AXS TV. The globe-trotting music series finds the rocker going above and abroad to catch up with a slate of fellow icons, hearing their priceless stories from their time on tour and taking viewers to the places that helped define their legendary careers.
Next week, Brian sits down with rock trailblazer Joe Walsh on November 3.
