1980: Brian Johnson is announced as the replacement for the late Bon Scott as the lead singer of hard rock band AC/DC. Scott had died on Feb. 19, 1980, after a night of heavy drinking. Johnson's first album with the band would be "Back In Black," which was made as a tribute to Scott. The album launched the Australian band to new heights of success and became their all time best-seller.
