The inventor of in-ear monitors, Asius Technologies founder Stephen Ambrose, says he will meet with AC/DC singer Brian Johnson next week to review his latest upgrade to the technology that may help the rocker return to the live stage one day.
Ambrose recently posted a video message with an offer to assist Johnson over the hearing issues that sidelined him from the band’s 2016 tour lineup in March, when AC/DC postponed the remaining 10 shows on their spring US tour after the singer was advised by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss.
Now, Ambrose says the pair have spoken and plan to connect in person. “Happily, due to everyone’s tremendous support, Brian and I spoke yesterday!,” posted Ambrose. “What a gracious man; He and his wife Brenda invited me to visit them next week. If anyone deserves to benefit from my research – it’s Brian – who has been giving incomparable performances for years despite increasing hearing loss.
“I’m going to do my utmost to see if our new hearing breakthroughs can help him, and if I am at all successful, I’m sure Brian will let everyone know; he really cares about people and would like to help. I am truly humbled and honored to meet this man, and I wish to sincerely thank everyone who helped. Fingers crossed; please pray for our success next week.”
