Joe Walsh and Brian Johnson recently ( joked ?) about forming a supergroup that would also include Robert Plant and Roger Daltrey.
The old friends were chatting on a recent episode of Eagles guitarist Walsh’s Old Fashioned Rock ’n’ Roll Radio Show, where they discussed how desperate they both were to get back onstage as soon as the coronavirus pandemic allows. The chat came a year after a misunderstanding led many to believe they’d been working on a record together – something Walsh flatly denied.(Ultimateclassicrock)
“I’m not gonna go there, but maybe we should start a band,” Walsh said. “Aw, Joe, that would be good,” AC/DC singer Johnson replied. “Robert Plant, Roger Daltrey – we’d get all the boys. We can sing rock ’n’ roll harmonies.”
Comparing the idea to the Three Tenors, Johnson added, “The Three Rock Singers: That would be pretty good, wouldn’t it?” Walsh responded, “Why don’t you write some music that needs a guitar part?” “I’ve got a ton of tunes!” said Johnson.
The conversation turned to hopes they could be performing again at some point next year, with Walsh observing that he “never thought we’d not be playing.” Johnson confirmed he was in touch with AC/DC bandmates Angus Young, Phil Rudd and Cliff Williams and was looking forward to the prospect of playing live. “It would be lovely just to get out there … on that stage and just give it everything you’ve got,” he noted. “Can’t live without the music, son!”

“My higher power became vodka and cocaine,” Walsh said, until he hit rock bottom. “I burned all the bridges. Nobody wanted to work with me. I was angry. … I turned into this godless, hateful thing.”
That’s when he sought the help of Alcoholics Anonymous. There, “I met some old timers,” he said, his voice cracking at times. “Gradually they showed me that I’m not a unique individual, one-of-a-kind person. I’m just an alcoholic, and for the first time in my life I felt like I was somewhere where I belonged.”
Walsh said he chose to drop the traditional anonymity of AA members to help others, and because “most of the world knew I was a mess anyway.”
