AC/DC singer Brian Johnson has been sidelined from the iconic band's Rock or Bust tour due to serious hearing loss, but has now shared some positive news about his condition.
Johnson has met with in-ear technology specialist Stephen Ambrose for treatment that he is hopefully will improve is hearing issues, Rolling Stone reports. Johnson said Ambrose's ADEL hearing technology -- which absorbs harmful pneumatic pressures inside your ear canal -- works and has hope it could help restore hearing to his everyday life as well as performances down the line.
Ambrose is the creator of the wireless in-ear monitor over 40 years ago and is widely used today. When he discovered that his invention was causing damage to people's hearings, he began working with scientists to improve the in-ear monitor and make them safer.
Guns N' Roses singer Axle Rose has replaced Johnson on AC/DC's tour -- to many fans' disappointment, including Ambrose.
"Brian, I introduced Guns N' Roses to in-ear monitors in 1990 and I'm a big fan of Axl Rose's voice, but let's be clear: I'm with Roger Daltrey on this, I really can't imagine anyone but you singing 'Back in Black,'" Ambrose said in the video.
