AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson heads to Metallica HQ in San Francisco for a hard-hitting sitdown with the band’s iconic drummer, Lars Ulrich, in an all-new episode of AXS TV’s globetrotting music series Brian Johnson’s A Life On The Road—airing Sunday, October 13 at 9pE/6pP.
In this exclusive first-look, Ulrich recalls going on tour with AC/DC in the early 90s as Metallica was starting to take the world by storm. AC/DC was a primary influence not only for the band, but for Ulrich himself, and the chance to watch his heroes in action left a profound impact on him. “You gotta remember, our musical roots were in [AC/DC], Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin,” Ulrich explains. “Playing with you guys on that run in 1991, which was the last time we really sort of supported anybody, we were in heaven getting a chance to be close to you guys and watch you every night for six weeks.” Check it out here.
Brian Johnson’s A Life On The Road airs every Sunday at 9pE/6pP, only on AXS TV. Next week, Brian sits down with Pink Floyd percussionist Nick Mason on October 20.
