Good Day Metal Dogs! After making our mandatory time lurch this past weekend, I think I am finally back on track. Daylight savings time can be eliminated anytime and I would be okay with that.
 
Has BRIAN JOHNSON been ‘kicked to the curb’ by AC/DC? That’s the claim by comedian and friend of the AC/DC singer, Jim Breuer, who says that Johnson spoke to AC/DC management and Angus Young to explain the situation with his hearing loss, that he didn’t think it’s as bad as the doctor said it is, but “literally the next day in the press, it was ‘Brian Johnson, tour canceled, he’s losing his hearing.'”
 
Breuer added that despite Johnson being in the band for 36 years, he still felt like a hired gun. Johnson also believes that Young, who is seven years his junior, wants to keep AC/DC going for another decade. “[Brian] explained how Angus is the youngest guy in the band,” Breuer said. “He’s convinced Angus wants to continue the next ten years whether it’s him or not. [Angus] wants to write another album and do one more tour. Who’s filling those shoes? How do you do that after forty years? It’s just really weird.”
 
CINDERELLA bassist Eric Brittingham doesn’t think Tom Keifer is coming back to the band, saying in a recent interview, “That is the big question. It’s, like, what are we doing? It’s been four years now that Tom’s been on his own. We’re not making any new music [and] he is, so I guess that’s probably the answer right there.”
 
Happy Birthday to TWISTED SISTER singer Dee Snider. He turns 61 today. Did you know that during the mid-80’s, before the premiere of Headbangers Ball, the first MTV program to consist entirely of heavy metal videos was ‘Heavy Metal Mania’ and was hosted by Dee Snider? Check out a short video promo of the show from 1985 below and note the cameo of a recently deceased metal legend at the :16 mark.
 
Occasionally you may hear a voice on METAL SHOP saying things like “That metal music is good for the soul and colon” or “Let’s put the fun back in funeral my friend.” That voice belongs to my longtime friend, Dan Jungle Rooster McCutcheon, who is celebrating another year above ground today. Happy Birthday Dan F!
 
Happy Birthday to Radovan Jakovljevic listening to METAL SHOP in New York.
