Brian Johnson is one of the latest cases of hearing loss in classic rock. Instead of performing live at loud volumes, he sites his racecar driving hobby for his hearing issues.

The AC/DC rumor mill has been thunderstruck with gossip for months now, and Hell’s Hearsay Bells are still clanging! Rock journalist and podcast host Eddie Trunk reported that a new AC/DC album is done and features recordings by the late Malcolm Young. He also confirmed speculation that Malcolm Young’s riffs will be used on the album posthumously, in tribute to their former guitarist.

Brian Johnson reportedly confirmed that he’ll be singing on a new AC/DC album. The singer of the band Terrorizer claims to have run into Brian in a Florida airport in January. He posted about the encounter on his band’s facebook page saying, “We ran into Brian Johnson from AC/DC at the airport today after the flight home and we asked him about the rumors of him being on the new AC/DC album and he said “Yes” and that he is ” Sick of denying it”. So that was a cool surprise ending to the tour.”

A trusted source here at MGK confirmed that the band was indeed in Vancouver recording, but the nature of the project still remains a mystery. Word on the hardcore fan site is that it may in fact NOT be a full-length album:

Whatever the case, it seems something is happening, and that it once again involves Brian Johnson. Hopefully it’s not a long way to the album drop, cause we wanna rock and roll!
