Axl Rose Spotted at Same Studio as AC/DC Members
The hot rumor going around is that Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose will be singing with AC/DC when the band returns to the stage. And while nothing is confirmed as of yet, TMZ has a photo of Axl Rose emerging from an Atlanta studio on Friday (March 25), along with another photo of AC/DC members Cliff Williams, Chris Slade and Stevie Young also leaving the same building.
The photos, seen here via TMZ, could be used by some to connect the dots, as AC/DC recently had to shut down their tour when frontman Brian Johnson was advised that if he didn't stop touring immediately he risked total hearing loss. At the time of the announcement, the band stated that they expected to return to make up the lost dates later this year, perhaps with another singer. Check out a tweet below from TMZ that also shows Rose leaving the studio.
The rumors began when Atlanta-based DJ Jason Bailey stated that he was being told that Rose was meeting with members of the band and that it was "all but a done deal" that Rose would front the group on the final 10 dates. A rep for AC/DC later stated, "Nothing official to announce. Will update you if that changes."
Though the photos seem to suggest that Rose is working with AC/DC, it's also possible that he's rehearsing with Guns N' Roses in Atlanta and that they're at the same studio that AC/DC is using. Just last week, Guns N' Roses announced the cities for a full-fledged summer tour, and their previously scheduled six spring dates are fast approaching.
