AC/DC Retirement Home
AC/DC's Brian Johnson says he is contemplating retirement. "We were talking about the end of the tour and I said, 'We're finishing in May and that's me done!' But Malcolm Young said, 'What are you talkin' about? We're not gonna let you retire! It's not me — it's just my age. I try to keep myself fit, and I love it being in this band. But it's not just me — Cliff [Williams, bassist] is knocking on a bit more than the others. The other lads are in their early 50s. I'm the old dog in the regiment. It's a purely selfish thing. I don't want to look a prat if I try to push it too far. I don't want for people to see me on stage and say, 'Oh, poor old f--ker, the band's carrying him!'"
