Brian Johnson, singer of AC/DC, is optimistic about playing music on stage down the line. The lead singer was forced to walk away from the band’s summer tour after doctor’s threatened the possibility of “total hearing loss” and was replaced temporarily with Axl Rose from Guns N’Roses.

According to Rolling Stone, Johnson met with in-ear technology specialist, Stephen Ambrose, to improve his hearing loss. Ambrose reached out to the singer via YouTube, stating: “I really can’t imagine anyone but you singing ‘Back in Black,’ or any other part of the show for that matter.”

In a press release from Asius Technologies, Johnson stated:

"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 miniturized so I can use it in every situation from normal communication, going out to noisy restaurants, to performing live music on stage."

With any luck, AC/DC’s next tour will have their lead singer back!
