It’s nice to see something good has come out of all the setbacks AC/DC has faced over the last couple years.
First, guitarist Malcolm Young left the band because of dementia. Then drummer Phil Rudd quit amid criminal charges. Recently, singer Brian Johnson had to quit touring because of hearing loss, replaced with G’N’R frontman Axl Rose. Adding insult to injury, fans and critics alike shared their displeasure with the change in singers.
But after his first show last night in Lisbon, Portugal, Axl showed how great of a fit he is with Angus & company.
Here’s a clip of Axl with AC/DC performing “Shoot To Thrill”:
Axl may still be ailing from a fractured foot suffered last month during the first Guns N’ Roses reunion gig. But I’d say the vocal chords still work fine.
