THE LIFE OF BRIAN
AC/DC singer Brian Johnson has signed a deal with Penguin Books to release a collection of thoughts and anecdotes he has jotted down over the years. 
“I like humor a lot,” he said, “and cars have been a big part of my life. I’m lucky enough that I’m able to buy some of the exotic ones. Instead of doing drugs, I did motorcars. I’m not sure which one is more expensive.”

Thumbing through his 300-page manuscript, he recounts his first Concorde flight and his first auto race.
“There’s one story about me buying my first car, a Ford 100E,” he said. “It was a rust bucket, obviously. I got in the car and drove about 100 yards and the seat went through the floor. I sat there on the road, and the guy who had sold it to me said ‘(Bleep), you’ve just fallen through the (bleeping) floor. Ahhhh, you should’ve checked that before you took it, me son.’ That was me first hard lesson in motorcars.”

More hard lessons would follow.
