    Comedian Jim Breuer is clarifying some statements he made about AC/DC's recently canceled concerts due to singer Brian Johnson's health, saying he was exaggerating and got "a little carried away."


    AC/DC Reschedules U.S. Shows as Singer Faces 'Total Hearing Loss'

    In a new episode of Breuer's The Metal in Me podcast released Tuesday (March 16), the comic described speaking with Johnson recently and said the rock star was upset over the band's decision to reschedule 10 U.S. tour dates last week due to doctors orders that he stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss. Breuer said Johnson had hoped to figure out how to perform at those shows and felt like he had been "kicked to the curb."

    Breuer continued, saying Johnson had heard that someone had already been hired to replace him on those rescheduled shows and his bandmates of 35 years haven't even checked in with the singer since he told them the news.

    He said, "All his luggage that he toured with showed up at his driveway. There's been no calls. No, 'How's your hearing? How's your health? What's going on?' Boom. Here's your shit, nice to know you."

    Breuer's podcast received a big response, prompting him to clarify himself on social media. In a Facebook post following, he said he saw his friend Johnson "withdrawn for the first time in my life" and was "simply venting as if he was a brother of mine."

    I have seen some stories circulating about my podcast. As a friend, I saw Brian withdrawn for the first time in my life. He's not a quitter, he seemed hurt by the situation of being between a rock and a hard place. I spoke as a true fan and friend, simply venting as if he was a brother of mine. I hope to see him Rock Out one more time. You have to remember I'm a comedian & a storyteller. I definitely exaggerate and sometimes I get a little carried away!! And this was one of those times!

    when ever he is on Stern I skip his interview. for some reason I don't find Jim funny or interesting. But liked when he sat in and used his Joe Pesci impersonation to mess with Eric the Midget also when he left a message for Henry Hill as Joe Pesci

    Oh, he's at 11 now. The Jim stories are just what moved him from 9 to 9.5.

    He's rarely been funny and he should apparently also avoid Twitter.

    On a side note, without Malcolm/Brian, AC/DC should hang it up.

    Twitter and social media is the undoing of many people's personal and professional relationships.
