Brian Johnson of Ac/Dc just wrote an open letter to Ac/Dc fans through Guitar World’s website. Is Brian Johnson’s singing career just about over? Not entirely. He says he’s not retiring yet. Brian says he’s okay to sing in the studio but he won’t be able perform live on the stage for a while. Brian also admits that he may never be able to perform on stage at all depending on his hearing on whether or not it improves.
Sucks for Brian but I have a feeling that his singing career may be over for good but we’ll see, though.
I know how some people are upset that Ac/Dc continues on with Axl Rose but it’s only temporary. Axl is not in the band full time. Like they all say, the show’s gotta go on right? A lot of people want to be upset at Axl taking over lead vocals in Ac/Dc but I want to defend that a little bit.
I think Axl Rose is a good choice to sing for Ac/Dc. Axl is almost like a crossover of Bon Scott & Brian a little bit. If you listen to Guns N’ Roses cover Ac/DC in youtube, you would see that Axl is the perfect fit. I think Axl sings well for Ac/Dc, in my opinion so I think he should pull it off fine. Like I said, it’s only temporary. Axl is not a full time member. I’m sure the guys in Ac/Dc auditioned for other singers but they found that Axl was the perfect fit. Axl’s voice fits Ac/Dc, that’s just my opinion.
If Brian is forced to retire ’cause of his hearing loss, I think Axl would be a perfect replacement as a full time singer for Ac/Dc and I mean that too. Axl sounds great singing Ac/Dc, in my opinion.
Ac/Dc has always been one of my favorite rock bands and they still are. I love both Bon Scott and Brian.
