Ultimate-Guitar recently assembled a list of replacement musicians that fans didn’t care much for. I originally thought Gilby Clarke would have made the list, but surprisingly Axl made the list instead. Axl Rose who replaced AC/DC singer Brian Johnson during the Rock or Bust Tour in May of 2016. the status of AC/DC is currently unknown but rumors seem to indicate that the band will be releasing a new album and touring with Brian Johnson. My take is that I don’t think AC/DC will be touring with Brian Johnson, but will definitely release a record as a tribute to deceased member Malcolm Young
AC/DC – Axl Rose
Some count him as a regular, official member. Some say he was just a touring vocalist. Be it as it may, rock ‘n’ roll world was blessed by yet another unexpected combination when Axl Rose stepped in to sing in AC/DC instead of Brian Johnson. The band got somewhat of a mocking nickname “Axl/DC” but it’s still interesting we all got to see and hear Angus Young and Axl Rose performing together. Besides, Axl was very professional and respectful during the tour, so we shouldn’t really pay attention to the naysayers.
When it was first announced that Axl was going to be fronting AC/DC many fans refunded their tickets with a lot of venues giving fans the same option. The media reported the fan outrage by saying thousands of fans had returned their tickets resulting in some nervous Axl fans, but in the end the outrage by AC/DC fans was shortlived and Axl won over quite a few people. However, there were a few people including singer Roger Daltry who criticized Axl by saying that AC/DC without Brian Johnson is just “Karaoke.”
