Axl Rose replacing Brian Johnson as the new front man of legendary rock band AC/DC is "all but a done deal," according to a report from Atlanta Radio 100.5 DJ Jason Bailey on his show.
"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," according to a transcription from Alternative Nation. "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."
