Is Axl Rose about to pull off some rock n' roll double duties?
Not only is the enigmatic frontman set to rejoin Guns 'N Roses on their upcoming reunion shows, according to a report, he's about to take over vocals for one of the biggest and most successful rock bands of all time - AC/DC.
Jason Bailey, a radio DJ from Atlanta, claims that a "very very good source" told him that Rose will join the band for the remainder of their tour after being "flown in" to the city to practice with the Aussie veterans, according to Alternative Nation.
"It's all but a done deal that Axl will front AC/DC for the 10 remaining shows" in the U.S., Bailey said on his show on rock station WNNX.
Representatives for AC/DC would not confirm the report, telling NME that there was "nothing official to announce. Will update you if that changes."
AC/DC's regular frontman Brian Johnson, who took over from previous singer Bon Scott in 1980, had to pull out of the "Rock or Bust" trek after doctors notified him that he needed to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss.
Meanwhile, Guns N' Roses will reunite for the first time since 1993 with most of its original lineup -- including guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan -- next month for the Coachella music festival in California, and prior to that, warm up concerts in Las Vegas.
