DEE SNIDER 'Just Saw' BRIAN JOHNSON, Says AC/DC Is Working On Album Using Tracks From Late MALCOLM YOUNG

Dee Snider says that Brian Johnson is doing “good,” nearly four years after the the AC/DC frontman was forced to leave the band mid-tour due to a dangerous level of hearing loss. He was eventually replaced on the road by GUNS N’ ROSES vocalist Axl Rose.

Earlier today, the TWISTED SISTER singer revealed via Twitter that he “just saw Brian” and addressed Johnson‘s health issues, writing “he’s good.”

Snider was responding to Twitter questions regarding his earlier comment that the surviving members of AC/DC were working on a new studio album which will reportedly be dedicated to late AC/DC rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young.

Dee tweeted: “[Malcolm] died. RIP Malcolm Young. But all four surviving members have reunited WITH tracks recorded by Malcolm while he was still alive. Malcolm‘s nephew Stevie Young is replacing him (he’s done this a couple of times before). It’s as close as you can get to the original band. @acdc”

It is unclear when Snider last saw Johnson, but a November 9 tweet from the TWISTED SISTER singer suggests that it might have been a month ago. At the time, he wrote: “Had a private dinner with three of the biggest rockstar frontmen in the world and our ladies last night. It was pretty amazing. #Imnottellingwho”

More than a year ago, Johnson and AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd, along with guitarists Angus Young and Stevie Young, were photographed outside Vancouver’s Warehouse Studios last August. Based on the pictures, the assumption was that AC/DC is in the midst of making — or at least planning — another album, with Rudd and Johnson both back in the lineup.

Ever since AC/DC completed the tour cycle for its 2014 album “Rock Or Bust” three years ago — a turbulent trek that weathered the forced retirement and eventual death of co-founder Malcolm Young, plus the departures of Johnson, Rudd and bassist Cliff Williams — fans have wondered whether sole remaining founding member Angus Young would keep the band going or decide it was time for AC/DC to pack it in.

This past February, a photo surfaced on social media suggesting that Williams has also returned to AC/DC and will appear on the rumored comeback album which is expected to be released in the coming months.
