AC/DC Frontman, Brian Johnson Defends Wal-Mart Decision
AC/DC frontman, Brian Johnson has recently spoke about the bands controversial decision to release their new studioalbum, "Black Ice" exclusively through Wal-Mart stores in North America.
"Maybe I'm just being old fashioned, but this iTunes, God bless 'em, it's going to kill music if they're not careful," 61-year-old singer Brian Johnson told Reuters. "It's a monster, this thing. It just worries me. And I'm sure they're just doing it all in the interest of making as much cash as possible. Let's put it this way, it's certainly not for the love, let's get that out of the way, right away."
Johnson also pointed out that Wal-Mart has been very loyal to AC/DC over the years, so the band had no problem giving the retailer an exclusive. "A lot of people were saying 'Ah man, you're going to the big Wal-Mart, you're selling out,'" Johnson said. "Wal-Mart were the only big store to stock all of our albums, every single one of them, and they've never deviated. And they sold AC/DC shirts and pajamas for kids, which we thought was really cool."
