AC/DC TO CARRY ON WITH AXL ROSE AND RECORD NEW ALBUM
AC/DC TO CARRY ON WITH AXL ROSE AND RECORD NEW ALBUMGuns N’ Roses is Down Under, touring Australia on its lengthy Not In This Lifetime reunion tour.
Since last year, Guns singer Axl Rose has also been fronting legendary Aussie rock band AC/DC, ever since that band’s lead guitarist unceremoniously fired popular singer Brian Johnson after 36 years with the group (Johnson developed severe hearing problems and Young opted not to wait for Johnson’s treatment to succeed).
Last weekend, Young joined Rose and Guns N’ Roses onstage at a trio of Guns gigs, two in Sydney and one in Melbourne. At each show, Young, Rose and Guns showcased a pair of early AC/DC rockers, “Whole Lotta Rosie” and “Riff Raff.”
This comes after Young has vowed to continue not only performing with Rose, but Noise11 reports that a new AC/DC album will be recorded with Rose handling the vocals.
Angus Young joined Guns N Roses at the two Sydney shows last week but did not play with the band at the first Australian show in Brisbane.
The union of Angus and Axl makes sense as Young is working on a new AC/DC album with Axl on lead vocals although a release date is not known.
Young joined Guns N Roses to perform ‘Whole Lotta Rosie’ and ‘Riff Raff’ at the Sydney shows.
