Apparently, GUNS N’ ROSES singer Axl Rose will fill in for Brian Johnson in AC/DC says Rock 100.5 host Jason Bailey who claimed that a “very, very good source” confirmed to him that the collaboration was happening.
Everything began after AC/DC postponed the last 10 shows because singer Brian Johnson was in danger of suffering “total hearing loss.” Band promised to make up for gigs with “guest vocalists.” Axl has been spotted in Atlanta, where AC/DC is reportedly meeting with potential singers.
Bailey reported: “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 10 remaining shows.”
Bailey added that Johnson was “supposed to retire after the last tour,” adding, “They’re in town, they were auditioning people for the job, and then they flew Axl in. Again, this is from my source.”
More information will probably be available soon.
