AC/DC to Put Out New Album with Axl Rose?
When Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose stepped up to fill in for long time AC/DC singer Brian Johnson after Johnson's forced retirement due to hearing problems, he had some big shoes to fill to say the least. Not only did Rose manage to do the job, but he did it so well that he won over countless naysayers. Now it is rumoured that Rose will be working with guitarist Angus Young to write and record a new AC/DC album.
According to an unconfirmed report written by Paul Cashmere for Noise11, the chemistry between Rose and Young is undeniable and has made Young want to keep going, saying:
“The chemistry between Axl Rose and Angus Young has inspired Angus to start planning another AC/DC record, but Guns N’ Roses’ touring commitments throughout 2017 will make it difficult to finalize the project.”
So far neither AC/DC's nor Rose's camps have confirmed or denied this report. Personally I think it would be cool to hear an album put out by such a collaboration, but I wouldn't call it AC/DC. Not any more since Young is the only original/classic member of the band left in it. Everyone else has since retired or died. Sadly though if it does happen it probably will get the AC/DC moniker just so that record companies can cash in on the name due to marketing ploys. We'll just have to wait and see, I guess.
