The latest RUMORS about Axl Rose joining AC/DC are everywhere. With GnR and AC/DC you have two bands that are notoriously tight lipped about anything, so that leads to it really not taking much at all for these things to pick up steam. As I have often said the current “media” today is truly insane. One person can say anything without crediting one real source and the social media world makes it fact. The last thing I read about this was.. “a source out of Atlanta said..”. WHAT? Okay so how about this; “a source out of NJ says Eddie Trunk is the new singer in Led Zeppelin”. Anything wrong with that? I mean that literally has as much of a real source attached as these current Axl to AC/DC rumors. It’s unreal and driven by the fact that we have the perfect union of two bands that don’t talk for the most part, and have the most incredibly rabid fan bases. It is the perfect gossip online storm!

Now I am NOT saying I know ANYTHING about this one way or the other. It could be true! But the way it is being treated as anything more than a rumor by credible outlets is stunning, especially when there is not ONE real official source yet anywhere. Could Axl do it? Sure. But to me it would be a strange move on the cusp of a massive commitment and relaunch of Guns. I would think every bit of focus to make that as good as it can be would have to be there? I got one for you. How about AC/DC and Guns co-headline stadiums and Axl sings both sets? Insane right? But that’s how easy it is to start a rumor and have it get traction these days. And before we forget Brian Johnson, does anyone really care about what his story is and what really happened?? I do! I mean the guy put in 36 years! But on all fronts I will wait for REAL info from REAL CREDITED OFFICIAL sources. Until then I need to practice for my new gig fronting Zeppelin…

  1. lets see i am a huge fan of ac/dc, bought tickets at the arena day of sale,have looked forward to the show that would have been in four days and now I hear of a possible replacement. What i want is for them to step back and see if brian can get better or not first. if not cancel all the US and Europe dates, actually do try outs for a new singer and carry on from there. I for one will not go see that clown axl rose butcher songs that mean so much to me. Refund here i come.

  2. I think this is just another stunt by Axel to make him self more relevant. He will have enough trouble getting thorough the GNR dates let along any ACDC dates. I do not think that Angus and ACDC fans will put with Axel and his divaness at all on toiur. Angus should take his time, refund the $$$ for that lost dates, and find a replacement.

    1. Agree totally. Axel is a horrible idea. Let him do his GNR reunion and have the shows start 3 hours late. ACDC fans would not put up with that foolishness. One thing I always admired about ACDC is their workmanship and that they honestly feel when they take the stage they are going to work and are going to give everything they have to their fans. Love the 1 or 2 great records GNR made but IMHO they cannot hold a candle to the career AC/DC has had. Give Brian a chance to sort out his medical issues. If it’s not to be start over with a search for a new singer. Can’t imagine it would take that long for them to find a replacement singer for one of the biggest rock bands ever.

  3. eddie,brian isn’t taken your calls???eddie you are the guy I go to in theses matters,and I do want to know brian johnsons side of it.ac/dc is huge in the hard rock scene,one of me favorites,saw the show in nj over the summer,had tickets to msg,nyc.is rock dead,hell no,but all this crap,is killing i.eddie roll the bones.i want my ac/dc back,with brian,he was great in nj over the summer,i did not see this coming at all.if it ended,i would be ok,but all this,hell no

  4. wow, talk about killing two birds with one stone … this, if it’s true, will be an absolute disaster for both bands involved. I would much rather have the Eddie-fronted-Led-Zeppelin play my birthday party than spend 15 seconds at an Axl-fronted-ACDC show. Now that I’m thinking about it, I would actually rather cut my eardrums out with a rusty pocket knife and replace them with eardrums from a rented circus monkey. I hope like hell this rumor is not true.
