Could Axl Rose Be The Guest Vocalist For AC/DC Replacing Brian Johnson?

Before you get all worked up, keep in mind, this is all a rumor as of right now.

The rumor is Axl Rose, who is in the midst of a Guns N Roses reunion, will step into the vocalist spot for AC/DC. A radio announcer for Atlanta radio station Rock 100.5 was the first to report the rumor as transcribed by Alternative Nation:

“This is what I’m being told, Axl was meeting with the AC/DC group, because it’s all but a done deal that Axl will front AC/DC for the 10 remaining shows. All 10, including Atlanta.”

“From what I was told, this was all kind of new inside information to me, Angus is a very black and white guy. He’s like, Brian, for health reasons, can’t continue fronting the band. He was supposed to retire after the last tour, so they wanted to continue going out on the road and continue making music, so if you can’t do it, we appreciate your services, but the show must go on. They’re in town, they were auditioning people for the job, and then they flew Axl in, again, this is from my source.”

Just when you think this is a ridiculous idea, here’s Axl totally nailing “Whole Lotta Rosie” a few years back. 

The last we heard was, AC/DC was locked down in a top-secret location auditioning new lead-singers. Could Rose have been one of them?
