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…

    • Eddie on

      Do you honestly think I haven’t called and tried to reach him…?

    The only way to salvage the 10 dates without everyone going for their refund is to try to hope that a bunch of attendees are also Axl fans and wont ask for a refund.

    Great idea to save their ass as ac/dc concerts are only half full of diehards that would want their money back ( unless they are extremley diehard Angus fans)
    The other half are people that probably only own their greatist hits . Probably the same people that may go to see ac/dc in the future when Angus finds a permanent replacement .
    It will be interesting to see if they will play arenas in the future or theaters.
    I know I wont be there ever again

      how about “pay as you exit” a la the little rascals?

    This will most likely be awful. Why do this before all the upcoming G N R dates? Weird.

    Feel the pressure rise
    Hear the whistle blow
    Bought a ticket of her own accord
    To I dunno
    Packed her heart in a travellin’ bag
    And never said bye bye
    Something missing in the neighbourhood
    Of her cryin’ eyes
    I stirred my coffee with the same spoon
    Knew her favourite tune
    Gone shootin’
    My baby gone shootin’

    Wrapped herself around
    Like a second skin
    Backed her favourite nag
    But she could never win
    I took an offer in another town
    She took another pill
    She was runnin’ in overdrive
    A victim of overkill
    She never made it past the bedroom door
    What was she aiming for
    Gone shootin’
    She’s gone
    Gone gone gone

    Gone shootin’
    My baby’s gone shooting’

      My favorite song on my favorite AC/DC record. Can listen to Powerage start to finish, any day. Have to say Bon Scott was an incredible lyricist.

  • Jeremy Halbert on

    I’d really like the band to give Brian a little bit of time to figure out what is best. And if they have to have a guest singer “in my own opinion” I believe Jesse James Dupree would be a great stand in. Anyway Eddie thanks for keeping us all informed and entertained love all the shows and have listen to all the podcast at least 3 times from the very beginning. You ROCK \m/
