Brian Johnson became the third singer of AC/DC in 1980 after the death of Bon Scott.

He saw the band inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006 and toured with them all over the world. However, in 2016, Johnson was forced to step down from live performances with the band after fears he would suffer "total hearing loss".

The new autobiography will chart the Geordie rocker's remarkable journey from growing up in Dunston, to becoming the lead singer of one of the biggest bands of all time, to his shocking 2016 diagnosis and his triumphant return to the band to release their 2020 Power Up record.
