Comedian Jim Breuer was talking about AC/DC frontman, Brian Johnson, on his podcast, ‘The Metal In Me,’ recently. Breuer, who is a friend of Johnson, said that Johnson felt ‘kicked to the curb’ and that his hearing issues were being exaggerated. Breuer is now saying that he was storytelling and he sometimes gets ‘a little carried away.’ Read his Facebook post below where he tries to clear things up.
“I have seen some stories circulating about my podcast. As a friend, I saw Brian withdrawn for the first time in my life. He’s not a quitter, he seemed hurt by the situation of being between a rock and a hard place. I spoke as a true fan and friend, simply venting as if he was a brother of mine. I hope to see him rock out one more time. You have to remember I’m a comedian & a storyteller. I definitely exaggerate and sometimes I get a little carried away!! And this was one of those times!”
Blabbermouth.net reported on Breuer’s original statements (‘exaggerations’) as well as his explanation. You can read that article right here. It also contains some audio from Breuer’s podcast.
The whol things reminds me of a great bit Breuer did years ago about how awesome AC/DC is. Check it out.
