Brian Johnson fronted the band Geordie before joining AC/DC. If you’re not very familiar with Geordie, Johnson’s YouTube channel has offered up some help.

Three performance clips of Geordie were recently uploaded for your viewing pleasure showing off some highlights from Johnson’s early career. Embedded below, those clips include:

-“Goodbye Love” (Live on the West Germany program Pop ’75, September 27, 1975)
-“All Because of You” (Live TV performance from 1973)
-“Blue Suede Shoes / Long Tall Sally” (Featuring Fogg from a March 1975 performance on the TV series Geordie Scene)

Johnson’s vocal power was evident long before joining AC/DC, but it is very weird to hear him sing glam and disco-inspired tunes. Oh, and the wardrobe is simply classic!
