If AC/DC opening for GN'R with Axl singing for both bands turns out to be true, then hot drat, I am in rock heaven.

They're two of my favorite bands of all time, so it's pretty simple math.

Sure, and I could understand calling an AC/DC & Guns N Roses show with Axl fronting both bands "rock heaven" if it were 1991 and Axl could still sing..

You know what would make it rock heaven?

If AC/DC gives Axl some reggae.

Yeah this is like a weird time warp finding out that anyone in the world still gives a poo poo about Axl. I feel like AC/DC should just save face and hang it up. They've had a good run but it seems that any time I hear about them anymore it's just "this guy or that guy who has been in the band for decades is being retired" and it makes me wonder how long until Angus' number comes up.

He's the only member who's been at every show since 1973, and he's the second youngest member after Stevie. He also doesn't drink or do drugs. He is a chain smoker though, but the fact that he's been doing it so long but can still put on his high energy act leads me to believe that he's got the best constitution of all the members.

The review you had on "Shark Sandwich", which was merely a two word review, just said "Shit Sandwich".



It's really sad Angus would hire some rando to sing when the band is in its home stretch. Like a couple of other posters said, it's the kind of mercenary crap I never associated with them.

gently caress it, I don't think Axl sounds all that bad. Of all his contemporaries I think he's taken care of his voice pretty well. Granted, its usually based on the show, but if he cares then you're in for a good time.

He can sing his own songs fine. But he has neither the heart of Bon nor the power of Brian. I suspect that the European crowds will not be pleased with his performance.

However, the worst part about this is that Axl's personality clashes with AC/DC's. AC/DC is laid back and lighthearted, whilst Axl Rose is a stuck up prick.

Interesting unsourced rumour. Based on the timing of recent events and other rumours, this one actually speaks to me...

quote:

Things haven't been good between Brian and Angus for a few years. Brian didn't want to tour arenas, basically because it adds more dates to a tour and pays less than stadiums. Angus is 100% AC/CD, writing and touring, that's all he wants to do. Brian wanted (not unreasonably) to take it easy and spent more time racing, and enjoying the fruits of his labours; this caused friction. Brian also didn't want to learn and add more Bon era songs to the set list. Angus became more and more frustrated at what he perceived as laziness and a lack of commitment. He was supposed to retire after Black Ice but decided to stay on, but as his enthusiasm continued to wane and moaning increased, Angus had enough and couldn't wait to replace him.

Apparently the hair that broke the camels back was an issue relating to 'time off work' and 2 first class plane tickets.

it'll all come out eventually, I'm sure.

HERE ARE THE FUCKING TOWELS

Yeah, I can see that - Brian is 68 years old and is probably well-set as far as money goes, I'm sure he's ready to retire. I'm pretty sure I read an interview with him after Black Ice where he sounded about ready to hang it up.

But fuckin' Axel Rose? His voice is okay, but he's like the epitome of an ego-fueled wanker.

I can't see it lasting very long, though, Axel's reliability is pretty poor.

I was never enjoying it. I only eat it for the nutrients.


How they landed on Axl Rose and not Steve Souza from Exodus has got to just be a matter of name recognition. Dude's got a great voice for the part, a shitload of touring experience over the past 30 years and he has an AC/DC tribute band on the side

Finally, Angus sets the record straight:

There could be more to Brian's leaving than just his hearing, but I think this clearly shows that there is no internal strife. IMO, pretty much all the rumours up to this point can be safely discounted.

New interviews with Angus, Cliff, & Axl:

nme.com posted:

So what happens after these shows – does the band continue in this format? Do you get another singer? Does Brian come back?

Axl: “Whatever they’re doing with Brian, that’s not my place to talk, that’s their business. Anybody else, I will slowly poison them!”

What’s the latest with Phil [Rudd, former drummer who was arrested for threatening to kill a former employee last year]?

Angus: “Phil I haven’t heard from. He’s been very quiet of late.”
Axl: “I’ve talked to him about these other singers, though!”
