He messed up Whole Lotta Rosie, but hey, it's a different band. Just listen to what the lineup that recorded Back In Black did to Back In Black one time...

Axl Rose and AC/DC plan new record

Axl's voice has been poo poo on the recent leg of the GNR tour, so I hope he snaps out of it before this gets recorded

That statement comes from another site that didn't give a source.

FWIW, back before we knew the name of Black Ice, multiple sites reported as news that it was called Strap It On, a name coined by a (literal) shitposter on the "armpit of the internet" Rising Power forum.

I will always love AC/DC and Angus, but please for the love of god, let that be false. There isn't ANYBODY ELSE he can find to lay down vocals? Why can't Brian come back for studio work? Do him and Angus hate each other that much now?

Ok, now THIS is a bad sign:

Axl Rose makes a guest appearance with Billy Joel, and performs an AC/DC song instead of one of his own or one of Billy's? One can only hope it was Billy's idea... -_-

Really cool read. I can't imagine how rad it would've been to be in the studio with them using all of that classic recording equipment.

Angus is the image, but Malcolm was the sound.

To celebrate his life and legacy, while there are songs that better showcase his playing talents, I'm picking the song that defines the name AC/DC:

Brief recent interview with Brian, mostly about cars, including a small bit about his hearing:

quote:

In 2016 Johnson was forced to step down as AC/DCs frontman after doctors told him to quit or go deaf. On stage it was getting harder and harder to hear the guitars, even hear the keys, and I was basically going on muscle memory. And Im not the kind of guy who likes to cheat. The way I look at it, I had a great run.

Sounds like he's pretty sure he's not going to do any kind of serious performing again.

Also, an interview from August about his TV show, Cars That Rock.
