Original AC/DC Singer Dave Evans Volunteers His Services to Front Band
Singers Bon Scott and Brian Johnson are not the only ones who have ever sang for AC/DC. When the band started in 1973 they were fronted by Dave Evans, who now apparently is offering his services to front the band once more due to Johnson's hearing problems.
In an interview with Sydney Morning Herald he acknowledges he probably won't get the call to take up the post, but he says about Johnson:
“I just thought it was sad news. It’s your lifeblood as a singer, live performances are so personal, without the crowd and the adrenaline it’s going to be hard for him. Performances are the big highs in our lives.”
Evans feels however that even though he probably won't be fronting AC/DC again, it would still be cool to do a guest performance, saying:
“It would be nice. [Former members] were all part of the band no matters what era they were from.”
I think given that AC/DC is definitely in the twilight of their career it would be kind of cool if they gave their original singer one last quick go at performing with the band on stage. Plus, it would kind of be cool for Evans to experience what the rest of his band mates were able to achieve once they had passed him up for Scott. At the very least a guest performance on one or two songs would be a good thing of them to do.
