Happy Birthday, Brian Johnson (AC/DC)

When AC/DC's Bon Scott died, in early 1980, no one, even the band, thought he could be replaced. When the surviving members decided Bon would've wanted the band to continue, they auditioned Brian Johnson, who quickly allayed any fears. Two months later, with Johnson in tow, they decamped to Nassau, Bahamas, to world-famous Compass Point Studios. The resulting album, "Back In Black" would go on to be the second-highest selling album of all time, second only to Michael Jackson's "Thriller". The decision to carry on with Bon Scott seems like a pretty good one.

And how to pay triute to one of the most powerful vocalists, ever? Don't sing! Trombone Shorty provides the cover. Sorry for the audio/video quality.
