Stephen Ambrose, an expert in the field of audio and the founder of Asius Technologies, says that he can help Brian Johnson return to the stage after the AC/DC frontman was forced to stop touring because doctors said he risked total hearing loss.
The legendary Australian rock band postponed the last ten dates of its recent North American tour after doctors gave Johnson the diagnosis. AC/DC has since announced that it will use GUNS N’ ROSES singer Axl Rose as a “guest vocalist” when it resumes its tour this weekend, with Johnson apparently not returning to the band at all.
Ambrose, who invented in-ear monitors, an advanced earbud used by professional musicians on stages around the world, says that he now realizes that his original invention “can cause permanent hearing loss — even when used at what may be considered to be reasonable listening levels.” He says he stopped manufacturing the devices in the ’90s so that he “could make [his] invention safer.”
Johnson issued a statement on April 19 in which he detailed the hearing problems that forced him to stop touring. While he promised to continue recording, he couldn’t say whether he would ever perform onstage with AC/DC again.
Johnson said his hearing problems were interfering with his ability to perform and he added that he has continued to consult with doctors, and was told that he could not “perform on stage at arena and stadium size venues where the sound levels are beyond my current tolerance, without the risk of substantial hearing loss and possibly total deafness.”
