Brian Johnson Turns to Tech to Combat Hearing Loss

By Radio.com Staff

AC/DC’s Brian Johnson is turning to technology to aid in his return to the stage.

Stephen Ambrose, the head of Asis Technologies, a company whose specialty is in-ear monitors, reached out to Johnson via a public video on Facebook with an offer to help the singer deal with hearing loss.

Johnson’s hearing loss had forced AC/DC to postpone a run of tour dates; they eventually replaced him with Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose.

It appears his message was effective, because Ambrose later posted a statement confirming that he and Johnson had spoken, and an in-person meeting is forthcoming.

See the full statement from the official Asis Technologies Facebook page below.

From Stephen Ambrose: Happily, due to everyone’s tremendous support, Brian and I spoke yesterday! What a gracious man; He and his wife Brenda invited me to visit them next week. If anyone deserves to benefit from my research – it’s Brian – who has been giving incomparable performances for years despite increasing hearing loss. I’m going to do my utmost to see if our new hearing breakthroughs can help him, and If I am at all successful, I’m sure Brian will let everyone know; he really cares about people and would like to help. I am truly humbled and honored to meet this man, and I wish to sincerely thank everyone who helped. Fingers crossed; please pray for our success next week. ‪#‎BackInBlack‬ ‪#‎64Audio‬ @acdc
