Metallica, Led Zeppelin, The Who Members + More to Guest on AC/DC Legend Brian Johnson’s ‘Life on the Road’ TV Show
Though Brian Johnson is no longer on the road with AC/DC, he’ll be sharing his own Life on the Road with a TV show premiering later this month. Brian Johnson’s Life on the Road will show the rock legend interviewing guests like Metallica’s Lars Ulrich, Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant, The Who’s Roger Daltrey and many more!
The show will debut on British channel Sky Arts on April 28 with Roger Daltrey will featured on the first episode. A description reads, “While on the road, The Who were second to none in terms of rock and roll mayhem — it was a non-stop carnival of drugs, groupies, and wrecked hotel rooms. Brian and Roger's conversation turns to The Who’s 1969 album Tommy and subsequent tour — and how it transformed The Who from a quirky, antagonistic art-rock band into stadium-filling rock gods.”
Episode two will feature Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, filmed from Metallica HQ in San Rafael, Calif. The episode will answer questions like, “How do you deal with fame on the scale that both he and Lars have achieved? How do you come down after playing a gig in front of thousands (or millions) of fans? What are the routines and rituals that become part of your daily life on the road? How important are the road crew and the management in making sure that the shows run as smoothly as possible or in some cases not?!”
Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, Sting, Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and Robert Plant will round out the remaining four shows currently planned. There are no current plans for an American release for the show, but we’re sure you’ll be able to find them somewhere online shortly after the April 28 debut.
