Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott Doesn’t Agree With How AC/DC Handled Brian Johnson’s Hearing Problems

Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott has criticized the way in which AC/DC handled the hearing problems that led singer Brian Johnson to leave the band, comparing the situation to how his band had to deal with drummer Rick Allen losing an arm in 1984.

AC/DC postponed 10 shows of their Rock or Bust world tour in 2016 after Johnson was told that he faced complete deafness if he didn’t stop performing immediately. He’s since been pursuing a number of solutions and made a handful of stage appearances.
