AC/DC lead singer Brian Johnson, who turns 64 on Oct. 5, entered the legendary band under difficult circumstances in 1980 as the replacement for the tragically departed Bon Scott.

Not only did he fill those shoes very well right away, over the next three decades he has more than made the lead singer job his own.

With Johnson, AC/DC has released eleven extremely successful albums, with the 2008 'Black Ice' being the most recent. The band recently announced that Nov. 20 will mark the release of their first new live album in two decades, 'Live At River Plate.'
