Axl Rose replacing Brian Johnson in AC/DC?
Atlanta Radio 100.5 DJ Jason Bailey made the shock reporting earlier this week in his show the claim that Axl Rose, Guns N' Roses frontman, is replacing Brian Johnson on all ten rescheduled AC/DC's US dates this year.
Quoting “a very very good source”, Bailey said: "This is what I’m being told, Axl was meeting with the AC/DC group, because it’s all but a done deal that Axl will front AC/DC for the ten remaining shows. All ten, including Atlanta.
"From what I was told, this was all kind of new inside information to me...Brian, for health reasons, can’t continue fronting the band."
According to Alternative Nation, 20-year-old Ross Malcolm Young later shared an article about Axl Rose on his public Facebook page and when someone accused him of “opening a can of worms”, he responded: “It’s true."
When another questioned Rose’s credentials for singing for AC/DC, as Alternative Nation reports, Ross simply said: “He can and he will.”
Ross has since deleted the posts, however, Alternative Nation have taken a screen grab of the share that you can see here.
AC/DC and Axl Rose have so far remained tight-lipped about the rumours abounding online and it’s currently unclear whether AC/DC’s dates in Manchester and London this summer will be impacted.
As everybody knows Brian Johnson was told by doctors earlier this month that he risks permanently losing his hearing if he continues to tour.
Adding fuel to the rumour mill, AC/DC said they were rescheduling their ten North American dates and “likely with a guest singer.”
Let's see what happen...!
