AC/DC’s Brian Johnson Thinks Religion Is a ‘Waste of Time’

Redferns

“Well I don’t believe in religion let’s put it that way. I believe all religions are bad. I think they’re a waste of time. Jesus was a clever man. He wasn’t the son of God,” said AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson in a great new interview with our friends at PopEater.com.

The 63-year old Johnson is out on the promotion trail for ‘Rockers and Rollers: A Full-Throttle Memoir,’ his recently released autobiography.

When he was a young boy growing up in a working-class English town, Johnson developed what would become a lifelong passion for cars and rock ‘n’ roll. “Absolutely me darling. It’s always been the case. Look at the Jaguar 8. It’s the perfect example, it’s got the longest hood. As soon as you’re a young man even if you can’t afford a nice big car you start tarting up the car you’ve got. It’s like a peacock when it fans its’ feathers to attract the female, you flash your car and you say, ‘Hey baby, want to go for a ride?’ My line was, ‘Come on don’t be shy, your mother wasn’t,” said Johnson later on in the interview.

In his late 20s Johnson found success fronting English bar rockers Geordie, but after the band splintered in the late ’70s, the singer went back to a day job working on cars. After AC/DC’s original singer, the now legendary Bon Scott, passed away from an alcohol poisoning, Johnson auditioned and was eventually hired as the band’s new vocalist. ‘Back in Black,’ the 1980 album that marked his debut with AC/DC has since gone on to sell 20 million copies and is largely recognized as one of the best albums in hard rock history.
