Brian Johnson, Mick Fleetwood Together On Stage

Brian Johnson (AC/DC) joined Mick Fleetwood (Fleetwood Mac) on stage recently at Fleetwood's On Front St. on Maui. Mick owns the restaurant.

I've eaten at Fleetwoods and seen live music there. The stage is open air and it's very nice and not large. I can't imagine how cool it must have been to see both Mick and Brian live together in that intimate environment.

Here's the duo performing "(Get Your Kicks On) Route 66." If you're ever in Lahaina, definitely make sure to eat at Fleetwoods. It's always busy, so make a reservation. There's lot of music memorabilia in the bottom portion of the restaurant and merch if you're into that sort of thing.

Best comment: "You got some lungs on you, lass."

Seems like a great, relaxed, time. For the performers. And a treat for the patrons. I don't normally go for the "food at the famous" sorta' meals. But I would gladly pick this over any Cabo Wabo or Vince Neil venture (even given how creepy Fleetwood can be).

Johnson is a class act as far as I am concerned (and you can cross apply this with my recent post on AC/DC). Seems truly humbled that he fell into such a great gig after Geordie. And never talked smack when his hearing when to crap on account of his other passion, cars. To say he had "a good run" is an understatement. To say he handled his departure from AC/DC with grace is also an understatement, even if he was always going to be "the guy who replaced Bon" to a lot of people.

Don't get me wrong. Those Bon-era albums are the best in my opinion. But to have a second act with such a great showman (for what he does/did) is luck. So they were lucky to have him. And Johnson seems grateful for it too.

A nice guy in rock. Plain and simple.

Johnson sounds great; totally laid-back and enjoying the groove and the moment. and, whatever you may think of Fleetwood as a person, damn that dude can still swing his ass off behind the drum kit. His blues band outside of Fleetwood Mac is awesome. they do a lot of the early Peter Green-era Mac tunes, and even venture sometimes into the stuff that he did when he was in John Mayall's band.

Good point, Bob. My creepy comment had more to do with how MF acts than how he plays.

Seeingand hearing Brian Johnson on stage and performing with various other musical acts recently leads me to believe there was a lot more than his alleged hearing issues that led to his dismissal from ACDC. Had to have been a falling out with Angus, which is sad. Especially in light of the current state of the "band".

Love Brian. That was freaking awesome. Everyone just stays in the pocket that Fleetwood creates. 😎😎😎
And I for one tend to agree with what Jeff said about the whole AC/DC thing.
