AC/DC singer hosts Alzheimer’s benefit in Tennessee

AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson and his Fifty Plus Racing team hosted an Alzheimer’s research fundraising event in Chattanooga, Tennessee on Friday.

The Chattanoogan reports the team donated $100,000 at their Endures for a Cure Alzheimer’s Benefit.

The Fifty Plus Racing team launched the “Highway To Help” campaign to raise support and awareness for Alzheimer’s research.

Johnson’s bandmate – guitarist Malcolm Young – retired from the group earlier this year after being diagnosed with dementia.

"He was the man that started the band, he was the one that was behind AC/DC,” said Johnson. “He was our spiritual leader. He was our spitfire."
