AC/DC’s Brian Johnson Recalls Stealing Bob Dylan Album
AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson has revealed that he stole a Bob Dylan album from a store in Newcastle, England.
Speaking on the AXS TV interview series titled “Rock & Roll Firsts,” Johnson revealed that the first album he owned was Dylan’s Freewheelin’. However, he said he didn’t buy that first album, but stole it.
“The first album I bought – well, actually, I stole it, because my girlfriend at the time was in Newcastle and she worked in the record store,” Johnson admitted. “And she said, ‘You know what? There’s an album over there that nobody’s buying. It’s awful. If you nick over and stick it up your … .’ And I did, and it was Bob Dylan’s Freewheelin’.”
“I walked out of that shop with the biggest nipples in Newcastle,” he said. “That’s what vinyl did to you!”
Johnson also revealed a series of “firsts” in the interview with AXS TV, including his first car, the first concert he attended, the first band he was in and the first gig he played.
Other artists to have revealed their “firsts” to AXS include Sammy Hagar, Paul Rodgers, Nancy Wilson, George Thorogood, Bret Michaels, Eddie Money and Sebastian Bach.
