Brian Johnson has commended Axl Rose for doing a “fantastic” job filling in for him at the end of AC/DC‘s “Rock Or Bust” tour.
In a new interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, Brian Johnson spoke about Axl Rose doind a great job with AC/DC on ”Rock Or Bust” tour. He said:
“He jumped into a tough, tough vocalist gig. You’ve got to be on top of your game for that. There’s not many resting places. You’ve really got to go in full chop, all of the time. And for him to do that at such short notice was pretty fantastic. I’ve got a lot of respect for what he did, you know. A lot of respect.”
AC/DC‘s North American tour ended in Philadelphia in September 2016, and despite initial fan trepidation, Axl got generally good reviews for his performances.
Guitarist Angus Young said at the time:
“I mean, under the situation that we had, it was very good that he volunteered and said, ‘Hey, if I can help, let me try.’ So he’s been very good. And he had to learn a lot of songs very quickly, and he’s done a great job.”
