"One of the boys is a little sick and I can't say anything, but he's getting better," Brian tells Mike “Cowhead” Calta of “The Cowhead Show.” "He's doing wonderful. Full recovery fully expected."
Johnson is hopeful that the group will be able to reconnect and hit the studio sometime this year.
"It's a wonderful thing when we get in a room,” says Brian. “Whenever the boys get back together, I get all excited. The boys, after a while, pick the guitars up, Phil [Rudd] will make his way to the drums, Cliff [Williams] will pull his bass out and then all of a sudden this noise comes out and I sit there with just this big old grin on my face."
Johnson will reportedly undergo wrist surgery following his drive in the 50th running of the Rolex 24 endurance race at Daytona International Speedway, which happens over the 28th and 29th of January; the event will be broadcast on SPEED and SPEED HD.
Johnson is driving the Rolex 24, and other races, on a mission: to not only win, but to raise $1,000,000 for pediatric cancer through his “Highway To Help” text campaign.
