“If The Coop asked me to guillotine my own head off for him, I would,” says Airbourne frontman and guitarist Joel O’Keeffe. “I have the utmost absolute respect for the rock ‘n’ roll pioneer!”
While it was hardly off with O’Keeffe’s head, he did perform with the rock legend in Melbourne. Watch it here.
“Bloody hell, I’m still buzzing my brains out from ‘School’s Out’ with The Coop! He’s so gutsy, I’m in awe of him every night just trying to learn as much as I can from his rock ‘n’ roll Masterclass he’s been slaying Australia with. So when he asked me to jump up, naturally I said, ‘Hell bloody yes. I’d be honoured, mate!,’ whilst trying to hide the fact I was exploding with white hot nerves of fear to not let The Master down.I just said to myself ‘Joel, if you fuck up even just one note, your head’s coming off in his guillotine.'”
Airbourne will be touring the U.S. this spring, hitting major festivals like Sonic Temple All dates are here
