    Default Dead Rock Stars

    Found this hilarious.....What would happen if Bon Scott was still alive.

    http://www.shoutmouth.com/index.php/news/22680

    AC/DC's career is exactly as it is now, since they somehow managed to find the one other guy on Earth with the same voice as Bon Scott. However, Brian Johnson went on to take over as lead singer for Van Halen when David Lee Roth left and the tight, cohesive unit became one of the most successful bands in history - in terms of fans, album sales, tour revenue and critical acclaim. With free time on his hands, Sammy Hagar is an alcohol kingpin, dealing in tequila, rum and vodka, but he remains virtually unknown in the music world for anything other than the song "I Can't Drive 55" - however, without his high profile from being in Van Halen, his anguished pleas for higher speed limits would go ignored, and commutes take that much longer. Also, every NASCAR driver would now have a different favorite song.

    This one sentence says all you need to know about this retarded story:

    "AC/DC's career is exactly as it is now, since they somehow managed to find the one other guy on Earth with the same voice as Bon Scott."

    WHATEVER, I guess they don't know really know what Bon Scott sounds like if they think he sounds anything like Brian Johnson.

    Why are we keeping this open again?

    Okay then.

    I didn't know Brian Johnson could have been the glue to hold it all together.

    What if Leslie West had worn shorts and a funny hat? Would Angus be the guitar hero that he is today? Doubtful!

    I also didn't realize that Brian Johnson took over after Dave left.

    I think that story was an attempt at humor. I think.



    Let's see if we can get every thread on Main locked. We're pretty damn close.

    It was supposed to be funny. I found it and thought it was actually kind of humorous. This is why I just lurk. Everyone on here is too uptight.
