Axl Rose is now the hardest working man in show business. The Guns N’ Roses singer is to join AC/DC as lead singer, replacing Brian Johnson, for the remainder of their world tour. Brian was advised by doctors to “stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss”.
Axl got some practice as the band’s new frontman during Guns N’ Roses Coachella headline set on Saturday, as AC/DC’s guitarist Angus Young joined the band onstage for AC/DC’s hits Whole Lotta Rosie and Riff Raff. Axl, who broke his foot on the first show of his tour, sat on a throne that Dave Grohl gave him, and sang from there.
THE THING IS … people who like AC/DC don’t all necessarily like GNR, and conversely. Some people think this is a great idea. Others not so much. What do YOU think? Yeah or nay?
