Listen to Jim Breuer and Brian Johnson’s New Song, ‘Mr. Rock n Roll’
The song premiered on Rolling Stone, where Breuer noted, “To me, Brian is the most powerful voice in rock and roll. He is also the funniest and most generous man I have ever known. I am still in awe of how he recorded the song and forever thankful.”
You can listen to the song below.
Breuer’s friendship with Johnson goes back a while, and the former Saturday Night Live cast member tested it in March when he told his Facebook fans that the singer was “kicked to the curb” by AC/DC after Johnson was forced off the road due to hearing-loss issues. (The band has since resumed its tour with Axl Rose on the mic.) Breuer later said he regretted speaking out of turn on the subject.
The comedian has also been a longtime fan of hard rock music, and he told Rolling Stone that “Mr. Rock n Roll” was written as a tribute to fans everywhere. “Don’t ever underestimate someone’s ability to live for the moment,” he said. “At the end of the day, everyone has a ‘Mr. Rock n Roll’ in them.”
Breuer’s first music album, which is credited to Jim Breuer and the Loud & Rowdy, comes out on May 27. In addition to “Mr. Rock n Roll,” Johnson appears on another track, “My Rock n Roll Dream.”
