Axl Rose Is AC/DC's New Frontman


Earlier this year, AC/DC were forced to reschedule tour dates after frontman Brian Johnson was forced to stop touring on doctor's orders (or risk "total hearing loss"). It's now been confirmed that Axl Rose is the new frontman of AC/DC. An official statement from the band reads: "We are dedicated to fulfilling the remainder of our touring commitments to everyone that has supported us over the years, and are fortunate that Axl Rose has kindly offered his support to help us fulfill this commitment."

This won't be the first time Axl has been at the helm of AC/DC. In 1988, Axl Rose took over for a few songs after Brian Johnson burned his hand. The world still went on.
