Hammer Down For AC/DC Singer

Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton and AC/DC front man Brian Johnson share a passion for great cars.  Johnson has just released a new book that tells tales of his life-long love of fast cars.  Rockers and Rollers: A Full Throttle Memoir recounts some of his favorite rides and the moments that made them special.  The AC/DC vocalist says his fascination with cars probably came about because they were rarely seen in the remote UK village he grew-up in.  The first new ride Johnson bought after joining AC/DC was hardly exotic - a 1981 Chevy Blazer, but it remains one of his favorites.  He now owns nearly a dozen vehicles, including four race cars, and says he has owned around 60 over the years.  His all-time favorite? His 2007 Rolls-Royce Phantom, the ultimate combination of luxury and performance - a plush car that still manages to clock-in 0-60 at 5 seconds.  His top driving tune?  Low Rider by War.
