Could Axl Rose Be AC/DC’s New Singer?

Axl Rose was spotted in Atlanta over the weekend, and according to MSL from GNRTruth, he was there for rehearsals, but not for Guns N’ Roses. While MSL’s tease on GNRTruth doesn’t specify what exactly Rose is rehearsing for, it has led to rampant speculation that the legendary Guns N’ Roses frontman could be one of AC/DC’s guest singers for their upcoming concerts.

AC/DC released the following statement earlier this month: “AC/DC are postponing the remaining dates of their U.S. tour because of lead singer Brian Johnson’s possible hearing loss. The band says in a statement that doctors have advised the ‘Back in Black’ singer to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss. The group’s shows beginning Thursday in Atlanta through April 4 in New York are being rescheduled for later in the year — likely with a guest vocalist. The group’s lone stop in Florida would have been Friday at the BB&T Center in Fort Lauderdale. AC/DC opened the most recent U.S. leg of its ‘Rock or Bust’ tour Feb. 2 in Tacoma, Washington.”

Do you think Axl Rose should front AC/DC at one of their upcoming concerts? If not, who would you like to see? Let us know in the comments section!

Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose took a photo with a fan outside of Atlanta hotel yesterday, and when the fan wishes him luck at his upcoming reunion shows in Las Vegas and California, Rose had some big news for the fan. Rose said, “Thanks man, but we’re gonna do a whole tour.”

The fan also said that in person, Rose was looking in great shape. “I don’t want to speculate or spread rumors but it really looked like he’s been working out a lot. His arms looked muscular.”

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan said he ‘hopes to’ see Guns N’ Roses’ 2016 tour, which will feature the reunion of original members Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan.

When asked if he was surprised, Corgan said he saw it coming.

“No. I said five years ago it’ll definitely happen. It’ll just be when and where.”

He added, “I just think the band, however you want to quantify it, broke up, or the original lineup didn’t endure past a certain point, and the world has changed a lot since then. The band is so great and the music is so great, and the chemistry is such a part of what people love — including me — as a fan. It would seem a crime to not be able to enjoy and appreciate the accomplishment in this era.”

Former Guns N’ Roses manager Alan Niven has revealed the rumored payday for Guns N’ Roses’ four upcoming North American reunion shows at the Coachella Festival and in Las Vegas next month. He also said that the Guns N’ Roses reunion isn’t legitimate without Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler. Niven told the New Rock Times, “Unfortunately, all things considered, I can only assume that its only for the money. How else to explain the lack of statements about creativity, or even who the band is? “How else to explain a ticket price of $1250 for row H.”

“For that matter, without Izzy and Steven can it be called a Guns n Roses re-union?,” he asks.

“Without them it’s really just Velvet Roses. Why aren’t those two included? Maybe there is not enough money to go around – after all, rumour has it that AEG are only paying $26,000,000 for two Coachella shows and two shows in Vegas.”

Niven believes it is a ‘financial decision’ to leave Stradlin and Adler out of the reunion.

    I could see this. Axl taking a break from his own tribute band to be the guest vocalist for now another tribute band. Because any time you need a guest vocalist for a veteran outfit or do a reunion-for-profit with only half your original members in tow, you’ve officially jumped the shark into tribute band country.

    • Badbadbad

      Axl’s “tribute band” includes Slash and Duff McKagan if you don’t know

      • venusinfarse

        He knew. He’s terrible at math and standard definitions.

      • Felonious Punk

        I also know that Izzy and Steven Adler aren’t in the band, so it’s essentially a tribute band only reuniting for a big payday.

        • venusinfarse

          You are clearly reliving high school on the internet. Do you go around calling Adele, Meatloaf, Nancy Wilson, Johnny Depp, John Goodman……. fat all the time? Every insult you make on people who never did shit to you, tells of your bitterness that other people are admired. If you don’t like Axl, you don’t have to be so hateful.

          • Felonious Punk

            Axl let me down when he continued Guns without the rest of the band. He’s a fat wanker who can’t sing anymore. More than enough reason to bash.

          • venusinfarse

            You didn’t answer my question? Curious if you you call any of your friends fat too? You can’t see your life moving on without Axl? You are truly owned. I’d guess you have nothing to offer the world so you bash people who do.

          • Felonious Punk

            I actually do tell all my fat friends that they’re fat and they’re grateful for it

            “I know it’s something I need to work on, so thanks for bringing it to my attention, Felonious…”

            So, like you said, just calling out the negatives to help people change.

          • venusinfarse

            Being overweight isn’t hurting anyone, being rude is mean and bullying. I read the post of you bullying this other poster. Your friends should tell you to stop being so miserable that’s if you have real friends. They should have kept you banned here but they must like that you spend hours here weekly. Tool!

          • Felonious Punk

            Are you seriously going to lecture me on bullying when you’re supporting a frontman who’s been known to beat up on women and incite riots over a camera? That’s got to be one of the funniest things I’ve heard all month. I’m totally laughing here.

          • venusinfarse

            Yes. A lot happened 20 +years ago. Even if he was a criminal and did his time, you shouldn’t bring up someone’s past as justification to bully him. You are not here fighting for victims, you are bored. I saw how you bullied that other poster mentioning his child. You sound like a serious sociopath. I see why they banned you.

          • Felonious Punk

            Haaaaaahahahaha

            For one, I never said anything about Jimmy’s kid. Jimmy took something I said to another poster entirely and just wanted to complain because he was still asshurt over having a derogatory remark he posted about Pink Taco removed

            I was banned for all of five minutes once because one of the mods here jumped the gun because I didn’t support Cage the Elephant like he did. A quick e-mail to the site owner inquiring as to why I was banned fixed that right up.

            So here you are STILL clutching at straws, talking about shit you don’t have a clue about, and yet me bringing up Axl the domestic abuser and his riotous past is considered out of bounds? And *I’m* the sociopath here? lolololololol

          • venusinfarse

            I read the comment you said referring his kid. It’s not your place to bring up his kid. That’s out of line.

          • Felonious Punk

            That’s funny. I thought Corndog deleted the post in question after Jimmy cried like a little girl about it.

          • Corndog

            I did.

            EDIT – Unless it was saved before i deleted it of course.

          • Jimmy Intense

            So not only are you homophobic but also sexist. That says a lot about you if you see no issue making fun of the disabled.

          • venusinfarse

            He is admitting to being a sociopath. People like this that go unchecked can be very dangerous to others.

          • Felonious Punk

            I’m homophobic now? Since when?

            Oh…since Jimmy Snitch the sissy little girl said so. That’s right.

          • Jimmy Intense

            So I guess defaulting to calling someone a ‘choadmonger’ isn’t the least bit homophobic. It’s quite fun to watch you bury yourself.

          • Felonious Punk

            Tl:dr

          • Jimmy Intense

            Proven wrong yet again. You were saying about predictability?

          • Felonious Punk

            Tl;dr

          • Jimmy Intense

            Exactly. Thanks for perpetuating proof that you’re just a troll with zero ability to tell the truth.

          • Felonious Punk

            *yawn*

            Tl; dr

          • Felonious Punk

            Tl:dr

          • Corndog

            You were banned? I don’t remember that. What did you do?

          • Jimmy Intense

            He was banned by some other site which I proved on that PJ Deep Cuts thread:

            https://disqus.com/home/discussion/alternativenation/given_to_fly_honoring_25_years_of_pearl_jam/#comment-2569516386

            Can’t say I’m surprised that someone grew tired of them. You even up voted my post ^

          • Corndog

            Don’t remember that one. I think i must have upvoted it by accident.

            To be honest man i just want all this bickering to stop. It’s just bringing the whole place down. I would also like to say that i am trying to stay as neutral in the midst of it all as possible, as you will hopefully have seen today when i deleted a post making disparaging remarks about your kid. Taco’s reasoning was that it was retaliation for what you said about his mom, and whereas i can see where he is coming from, i cannot agree with that reasoning because if we’re doing ‘an eye for an eye’ we’ll all be blind before long. Hopefully he has got it out of his system now, and i think i deleted the post before many people would have read it.

            Peace people! All i want is a little peace:)

          • Felonious Punk

            I have two or three Disqus accounts, if you really must know. FP is just the one I use here. I sometimes troll the AV Club with the Demonomania handle (named after one of my favorite Misfits songs)

            Mike Mazeroni banned me for like five minutes one time because I called him out on some erroneous facts he published in an article about Caged Elephants, or whatever the fuck the band calls itself. So he banned me with no warning. I assumed it was Brett, so I logged in with my Demonomania name and told Brett it was a dick move and I was going to go on other sites and tell them what pro-censorship dicks the guys at AN were. I probably wasn’t serious, but who knows.

            Then Brett emailed me and said it wasn’t he who banned me, and that it was unnecessary for Mike to do so, and he reinstated me after about 10 minutes. I thanked him, apologized for being catty, and that was that.

            Until about a week ago when JI got painted into a corner for snitching and decided he could resurrect the whole thing as a means of oneupmanship. It was lame then and it’s even lamer now, but like I said…I’m long over it.

            You asked why I was banned and had another Disqus handle, and there’s the gist of it. It’s really not the epic saga that some are so desperate for people to believe.

          • Corndog

            Shows what I know. Until you said it, I didn’t even realise there was more than one disqus account. I thought ‘felonious punk’ got banned, and was just curious as to when/why.

            Cage The Elephant are shite in my opinion.

          • Felonious Punk

            Felonious did get banned for a hot minute. I used the other one to log in and voice some discontent. Then Felonious was allowed to come back in the house.

          • Corndog

            I blame the bear. It’s like that creepy doll from The Conjuring.

          • Felonious Punk

            I can get admittedly overbearing around here. I’m man enough to acknowledge it. Might be time to streamline the snarkiness a bit. Nobody should be having a cow about it.

          • Corndog

            It’s your thing. So long as you’re not calling people cock juggling thundercunts i don’t see an issue.

          • Felonious Punk

            Cock-jugglin’ thundercunt…I’m going to use that one, thanks!

          • Jimmy Intense

            Get the facts straight. You’re the one clutching at straws if you seriously thought I was “asshurt” (real original btw…copying someone else’s style?) by my comment being deleted. It deserved to be deleted, big deal. I took issue with you casually taking aim at the disabled. Obviously Corndog agreed so that doesn’t exactly make me a snitch/bitch as you continue to claim. At least I didn’t personally email anyone or claim (rather pathetically) that someone was ‘aping my style’. Joke’s on you, bud.

          • Felonious Punk

            Wow…so just because Corndog deleted something you requested to be deleted, that automatically nullifies your snitching? Nice try, but no. You’re a snitch, Jimbo. That’s after you essentially call the guy a bitch for working for Brett.

            Stop trying to kid anyone; you are CLEARLY still asshurt over last week’s beatdown. That’s why you continue to call me out after you claim to the entire site that you’re done associating with me. You just can’t help yourself, and it’s obvious.

          • Jimmy Intense

            Show proof that I called Corndog a bitch. You’re delusional. Clearly much is wrong in your life to feel the need to prove how awesome you are as King Shit of Fuck Mountain. I mean really. Your parents should be proud of the little scum sucker they’ve raised.

          • Felonious Punk

            Tl:dr

          • Jimmy Intense

            Just as I thought. You’re always full of shit. Thanks for playing along. Everyone can see how pathetic you are.

          • Felonious Punk

            Tl; dr

          • Corndog

            In fairness, I am a little bitch.

          • Felonious Punk

            But are you Brett’s little bitch? ; )

          • Corndog

            Depends. Is he going to buy me dinner first?

          • Felonious Punk

            I would think so. Brett’s a pretty stand up guy 😀

          • Corndog

            Well shit man. Brett’s a good looking guy. Sign me up!

          • venusinfarse

            You didn’t answer my question? Curious if you you call any of your friends fat too? You can’t see your life moving on without Axl? You are truly owned. I’d guess you have nothing to offer the world so you bash people who do.

        • Badbadbad

          YEAH. The original members were the same in 1992-1993 and I didn’t see stadiums packed with people complaining and probably you didn’t complain

          • Felonious Punk

            lol probably

          • Corndog

            How the Fuck do you look at a packed stadium and be able to tell if they’re complaining or not? That’s like a herculean feat of lip reading right there.

          • Felonious Punk

            I guess all those riots GnR incited back in the day were out of joy at the band being professionals and Axl always showing up on time.

          • Corndog

            Maybe he’s called Axl because the circus keeps going round and round?

            You see what I did there? Yeah? No?…….I’ll get my coat.

          • Felonious Punk

            I lol’d

        • venusinfarse

          Let’s see your picture and imagine you at 54. Not pretty I bet if you live behind a computer. If you were happy with your life, you wouldn’t be so critical of others.

          • Felonious Punk

            Says the guy criticizing me? Speak for yourself there, bub.

            I’m perfectly happy in life. Great job, physically fit, and plenty of laughs. That reverse psychology bullshit isn’t going to work here, I’m afraid.

          • venusinfarse

            I don’t believe any of that. I am critical of negative people so they change. I wouldn’t criticize your overall looks but I noticied you didn’t applaud yourself there. lol

          • Alan Russell

            That is terrible…he was never good. Now he just needs to stay in his trailer..

          • Felonious Punk

            lol I don’t give a shit what you believe. I’m supposed to brag about my looks so you can not believe me and try to tell me otherwise? How much sense does that make?

          • venusinfarse

            Yes since you pretend you life is so great why not go all the way?? I never met a healthy mind that lives to criticize people. Since you certainly cannot control it and never are going to stop obsessing about this band…..see you around!!

          • Felonious Punk

            Okay

          • Felonious Punk

            lol k bye

          • venusinfarse

            See you on the next GnR post. That will prove all it’s all b.s. about you losing interest. Axl owns you. You can’t stay away!!!!

          • Felonious Punk

            Agreed. I just can’t refrain from trashing Fat Axl and his band of hired guns for profit. Hope to see you there!

          • venusinfarse

            Do you work for free? Certainly you are not a confident guy with social skills. I promise you that all the bullying you do going forward will come back threefold. Guarantee. All bullies have the same end. Don’t respond.

          • Felonious Punk

            Or…maybe I was bullied for years as a child, grew some confidence, and now extract my revenge pissing off guys like you and others over things as minute as GnR and Pearl Jam.

          • venusinfarse

            Really sorry to hear that. I would believe that’s true and the best way to deal with your past is to break the cycle. Good luck.

          • Felonious Punk

            lol OF COURSE you’ll believe that.

          • Jimmy Intense

            Hahahahaha I had a feeling you were some wimpy keyboard warrior. What a loser!

            I Hate my life, hate my job and the only exercise I get is pushing the clutch pedal in. Other than that, I’m all good:)

          • Jimmy Intense

            Don’t waste your time on the AltNation troll. You’ll just be given childish insult after homophobic remark.

          • Felonious Punk

            Jesus…you’re *still* bitter about that assbeating I dished out on you last week? Get over it.

          • Jimmy Intense
          • Felonious Punk

            Look, everyone! Jimmy’s trying to start another fight again! This time he’s just using random posts that have no relevance to anything in this thread to ignite another flame war.

            I think I hear your wife crying because you’re not spending enough time with her again.

          • venusinfarse

            Stop talking about his family. Be a man if you know how.

          • Felonious Punk

            lol knowing Jimmy, I’m sure he doesn’t need today’s daily MYGNR visitor at Alt Nation swooping into his rescue. He could always just go snitch to Corndog if he feels I’m hitting a little too close to home.

          • venusinfarse

            I’m not on that site. You have a lot of hate for strangers, that makes you a verifiable sociopath. You take it too far and people shouldn’t just ignore you.

          • Felonious Punk

            I have a general dislike for choads like you who just show up for a day or two and chest-beat, and then vanish off the site. If that makes me a sociopath, so be it. Not hurting my feelings any. I’ve been called way worse by much better.

            Assuming Jimmy Snitch is going to continue this lame, ongoing flame war he’s revived yet again, I’m sure he wouldn’t mind you sticking around and coming to his aid like this.

          • venusinfarse

            Time for you to get a life OFF the internet now you’re totally tripping out. This isn’t fun to watch.

          • Corndog

            A little. Not as bad as Taco’s comment, but still kind of unnecessary. Don’t talk about the man’s wife. Fair enough?

            I can’t believe this shit is still going on.

          • venusinfarse

            And he shouldn’t be talking about his kid. This guy is really disturbed. Why does he get to attack Axl and other people all day long?

          • Corndog

            Folks can say what they like about the celebrities all they want. If people put themselves in the public eye they i’m sure that they expect a certain amount of that, and i am also sure that they would not care about the opinions of posters on a site like this. I don’t think that makes Felonious disturbed. I’ve had a few choice words to say about people like Courtney Love or Davel Grohl myself on this site over the years. If you think that is bad, you should see some of the nutballs we get on the Cobain murder conspiracy articles.

            My concern is with how the posters on the site treat one another. I try to make sure that this is a nice place to visit, and that folks can express their opinions without fear of people being unnecessarily rude and obnoxious to them. Any posts like that, blatant name calling or talking shit about peoples families are not welcome, and will be deleted as and when i come across them. If we all stick to talking about the articles, and not one another, that shouldn’t be an issue.

          • venusinfarse

            I agree with you. I think his persistent hard-on for Axl is related to his accusing me of being on mygnr (I am not) which tells you he is in a fight with that website and taking it out on Axl fans. He even said he enjoying fans being upset by his insults. It’s not good for this site to have his agenda here especially now.

          • Felonious Punk

            I can’t either. I just wanted to make it personal and give Jimmy the snitch a taste of his own medicine. Naturally, he couldn’t swallow that pill, even though it’s perfectly acceptable for him to pull that shit with others. He’s as predictable as the night is long.

          • Corndog

            Let it go man, seriously.

            God damn it! Now I have that stupid fucking ‘let it go’ song going round and round my head!

          • Felonious Punk

            I’m perfectly fine with — and capable of — letting it go. I did so last week as soon as you stepped in and told us to stop. The reason? None of this is anything more than mindless entertainment to me.

            I just hope you can see Jimmy’s bullshit stance on all this. Nobody was even talking to him and he shows up trying to start shit. He shouldn’t be surprised when he gets backhanded for such shit. The guy constantly bitches about Brett’s articles, claims he can’t stand this place, says anyone who contributes to the site is Brett’s bitch, and yet he can’t stay away from this place. Doesn’t take a genius to see the guy is completely full of his own shit. Hence why I don’t take anything he says seriously or personally.

          • Corndog

            I honestly don’t know WTF happened. All seemed like something in nothing. Certainly nothing worth getting bent out of shape over.

          • Felonious Punk

            Agreed. Like I said, I’m done with it.

          • Jimmy Intense

            Tl; dr

          • Pink Taco

            Jimmys a daft cunt. When I hollered inappropriate for his comment on fucking my mom – he made jokes. Later, someone made fun of his drooling retard kid – he was not such a big man anymore and he was crying. Talk about pot and kettle type bollox.

          • Corndog

            Not cool man. Comment deleted.

          • Pink Taco

            because I pointed out the hypocrisy, mate?

          • Corndog

            I didn’t like the comment about Jimmy’s child.

          • Pink Taco

            I didn’t like him talking about me mums gash. I think I was allowed one back at him.

          • Corndog

            The comment about your mum was also deleted (at your request) because, just like the one you have just made about his child, it was crass and unpleasant, and i found it offensive.

          • Pink Taco

            sorry about that Bruv. I wasn’t trying to offend you. I was hoping I could offend him.

          • Corndog

            I have a child that has some minor issues, so i always find comments like that offensive.

            Far as trying to offend Jimmy is concerned, i can understand if some of the folks here don’t like one another, that’s fine, but really, we’re all adults here (at least i’m assuming we are, i don’t actually know anyone’s age) so we should be able to just avoid the people we don’t like and not go out of our way to antagonise them? I don’t think that is too unreasonable a request, right?

            Fair enough, but be advised that any other comments such as that one or the one about your mother that come to my attention will be deleted.

            Just wondered, as your choice of language made you sound very English. I’m from Ireland myself.

          • Jimmy Intense

            I can only assume you were trying to get a rise out of me by bringing my disabled child into the conversation as some kind of cheap attempt to ‘get me back’. So congratulations, you’re a loser. People like you deserve to be sterile or better yet to have a child with a disability so you can understand how pathetic people like you truly are.

          • Corndog

            I think we can all agree that talking about peoples children or their mothers is not cool?

            The only exception is if you’re talking about France Bean’s mom, or Courtney Love’s daughter. In that case, have at it:)

          • Pink Taco

            your weak hypocrisy as it were you daft cunt. now bugger off while I can’t be arsed.

          • Jimmy Intense

            As in can’t be arsed to make any fucking sense. Nice attempt to one-up me there, Jr. Felonious.

          • Pink Taco

            bollox. such a bore.

          • Corndog

            Ok, enough already!!

            Any additional posts that are nothing more than continuing this argument will be deleted.

            Haaaahahaha WOWZERS

            You have said some shameful, embarrassing stuff in the past few weeks, but this takes the proverbial shitcake.

            Sorry Corndog, I just can’t resist with this one. Dude has been crying like a bitch for more than a week, bringing his sick child into the argument as a leverage means, then turns around and wishes for someone else to have a sick child?

            Holy hypocrisy, Batman. Class up the ass, and then some. And proof positive that JI’s squealing for justice about the mental retardation remarks were complete bullshit.

            *drops mic, walks away*

          • Corndog

            I give up. Clearly nothing I say is going to make any difference until the 3 of you get this out of your system.

            Anything I think is going too far, like comments about people’s families, I’ll delete. Otherwise I’m not getting involved any more. It’s taking all the fun out of commenting.

          • Felonious Punk

            It’s out of my system, and I’ll let it go now. I had my parting shot and it was a fatal one. JI has been playing the victim all week with his ridiculous assertion that we were mocking his sick kid, and then turned around and exploited it by wishing the exact same thing on PT.

            Really nothing left to say or prove on my part, because that about says it all. I’ll just skip over JI’s posts like I’ve been doing and he’ll most likely continue to stew in his animosity about being outed as a bottom-feeding lowlife on AN, and continue to take lame potshots that have zero relation to what’s being talked about at things I post. I can live with that. Much easier than engaging and watching him continuously prove he can make an even bigger ass of himself than the day before.

            Moving on..

          • venusinfarse

            I’m disgusted by Felonious Punk. He hates mygnr and I bet it is mutual. I told him above,”It’s pretty clear what Jimmy meant. If you had a disabled child you would see how really unfair the world is and try to be a force for good instead of being a sarcastic bully with a childish ego. You sound like a guy who is mad at the world for the mere fact that people aren’t interested in anything you are doing or saying. You live to destroy and don’t know how to build. Going nowhere in life while other people mature and grow.”

          • Corndog

            I think that you’re taking this a little bit too far. He said Axl was fat, it’s not the end of the world. I’m reasonably sure Axl wouldn’t care a bit if he had read it. We are all critical of celebrities; be it their looks or whatever output they have -music, films or whatever. I’m also sure that it is not illegal to hate a particular forum, if he indeed does. I have on personal opinion of it as i have never been on mygnr but just by way of example, i hate the comments section of Youtube and i would not expect anyone to care if said as much.

            If i see a post like the ones mocking peoples families i will delete those, but this is a music fan site, and folks are going to have a few choice words to say about the musicans listed. If it was a movie site, people would talk shit about the directors or the actors. It’s human nature. Try not to take it so personally. If Felonious really bothers you that much, might i respectfully suggest that you just ignore him? If he or anyone else makes a comment about you specifically (not about the bands or individuals covered) that causes you distress or bothers you, then let me know and i will review it and if necessary delete it.

            I honestly don’t want to seem like i am brushing you off here, that is not my intention at all. I have already addressed the mother/child posts with the people that posted them, and also deleted them, but i don’t see that there is any issue at all with Felonious speaking about Axl. As said, that’s fair game. If i was to get bent out of shape every time someone on this site was talking shit about Eddie Vedder i’d be pissed permanently. I understand that you have an issue with him calling the guy fat, and that’s fair enough, but instead of arguing with that point, try talking to the guy about the main point. Tell him why you think that Axl is still a good singer (or whatever) and he will reply in kind, and i’m, sure you will see that he can be quite an intelligent and articulate poster if you engage him. He can also be a right wee cunt at times, and i have no problem with posting that here where he can read it as i know he would be the first to admit it. In fact i think he did so somewhere in this very thread.

          • venusinfarse

            His bullying extends beyond Axl. He admits he might be a sociopath. What do sociopaths do? They cozy up to certain people that might be able to help them with fake comradery. If I see him continuing to go after Axl and PJ fans since he has a vendetta with being ousted of mygnr or wherever, I might reveal myself and write Brett to take a look at his posting history.

          • Felonious Punk

            HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

          • Corndog

            Brett is well aware of Felonious, and as far as i know quite likes him.

            Sure, Felonious can be a bit or an arse at times, but he is hardly a bully, and as for sociopath, come on man. It’s the internet. People talk shit on the internet all the time. It’s not like he singled you out and came after you. You had an issue with him calling Axl fat and made it known to him. Try not to take it do personally. Just relax and enjoy the site.

            The first time i ‘met’ him online he was a wee gobshite to me (still think he thought i was someone else) but i didn’t take it personally. I laughed it off, gave as good as i got, and now we’re buddies. Seriously, try talking to the guy instead of about the guy.

          • venusinfarse

            My friends know Brett and I told them. Is Brett aware at the level of trolling he is doing? He seems to be a guy banned from Mygnr and others??? and trying to upset your readers who like these articles. He accused me of being someone else from Mygnr and went on the attack. Now I see he posted crying memes on my posts since he had to get the last work in like a kid. He has an agenda here to disrupt. I know you think it’s harmless but I bet he has been doing this for years elsewhere.

            Felonious Punk wrote above to another guy:

            By author, are you referring to Brett?

            Because all he’s doing is reposting a rumor that was started by some choad named MSL over at a place called GNRTRUTH, of all names.

          • Felonious Punk

            lol

          • Jimmy Intense

            No they weren’t bullshit at all but feel free to keep grasping at those straws. Sometimes jackasses like you and Pink Taco deserve to know what it’s like to support a child with a disability. Perhaps then you wouldn’t be so quick to make fun of people like that. Then again, you have no regard for anyone but yourself so I doubt you’d even ‘get it’ then.

          • venusinfarse

            He’s a deranged guy. He posted crying memes on my posts here and a “boo hoo”. He’s like a like kid trying to antagonise. My friends said he is Magisme who was banned from Mygnr and Pink Taco is Len Bastard from Mygnr. They run guns nf roses or something like that.

          • venusinfarse

            It’s pretty clear what he meant. If you had a disabled child you would see how really unfair the world is and try to be a force for good instead of being a guy with a childish ego. You sound like a guy who is mad at the world for the mere fact that people aren’t interested in anything you are doing or saying. You live to destroy and don’t know how to build. Going nowhere in life while other people mature and grow.

            I’m disgusted by Felonious Punk. He hates mygnr and I bet it is mutual. I told him below,”It’s pretty clear what Jimmy meant. If you had a disabled child you would see how really cruel and unfair the world is and try to be a force for good instead of being a sarcastic bully with a childish ego. People who deal with special needs kids could even age faster by the mere amount of extra work required as a caretaker.

            Thank you. I have no respect for people that bully the disabled even in passing. It’s disgusting and shows a lot about their (lack of) character.

          • Felonious Punk

            I’m more of a “search and destroy” kinda guy, lol

          • Jimmy Intense

            It was relevant to your claim that I was handed an ass beating last week. Your dreams sound a little…you know…desperate 😉 so my link wasn’t irrelevant at all to where you were attempting to direct the thread.

            The only tears we’ve shed over here are from laughing too hard at your expense as you continue to unravel.

          • Felonious Punk

            Unravel how? Like letting some random poster on the Internet ruin my week, to the point where I need to take a break from the site and complain to the moderator that posts need to be deleted?

            Keep swinging and missing, Jimbo. Watching you land on your face never gets old.

          • Corndog

            From this point on I’m just going to delete any posts that continue this pointless argument. Said the same to jimm and Taco.

          • venusinfarse

            Thanks for sharing that. He is a serious sociopath. His Axl hate is disturbing. He is on one of those GnR forums, he is obsessed. See below, he won’t stop.

          • venusinfarse

            Here’s come his response!!!! You really are one of those people who everyone hates in person, aren’t you? Aren’t you?

          • Felonious Punk

            *Here comes

            you mean

          • Felonious Punk

            lol nice try, but I have never once been a member of any shitty Guns forum. Guns haven’t been relevant since 1992, so why would I go to the trouble of making an account on a Guns forum when I could just heckle the shit out of them here…and get choads like you to come contribute to the site, as well.

    • ITURBIDE

      LOL…I read all this post responses eating chips and drinking beer like watching a UFC fight…

      Would I have to feel bad about it?

      • Felonious Punk

        lol I did that last week when me and Jimmy were bickering. Shit’s funny…especially when it’s over something stupid like Fat Axl.

        • ITURBIDE

          man, he is so….intense.

      • venusinfarse

        I wouldn’t laugh at his bullying. He and his friend Pink Taco (slang for vagina as you may know) really are misogynists and bullies and post non-stop of Guns N’ Roses forums claiming they hate the band. These aren’t fun guys with any ideas, creativity, or charisma. You’ll see it’s the same insults and ass-kissing ad nauseum and when you bring up a man’s wife and disabled kid (both did) then it’s crossing a line.

        • ITURBIDE

          Well, the way I see it he just post a comment and the usual rogues are like flies to honey. You can´t blame the man for posting something that he know in advance will have a response that will result in a fun series of comments. Most of the time he doesn’t response other people´s comments, he just post and wait for answers. This is the internet. If you or somebody else didn’t want “bullying” then don’t answer to him. simple. The world its too damn politically correct now. They go to GNR forums to claim they hate the band? So what…I´m a GNR fan and I have the most expensive ticket for the concert in Mexico…Do I give a damn what they post or feel bad for buying a ticket to a GNR concert? absolutely not….to this day I can freely choose what fucking music I listen or not and I´m free to post whatever the fuck I want or answer to anyone I want. You can too, but be prepared for the ride…You take this shit too serious. Have fun, enjoy the anonimity and please don’t tell me what I should find funny or not.

          • venusinfarse

            He admitted he hasn’t liked the band since ’92. I’ll say this, he needs to get a healthy hobby besides calling Axl fat. A lot of kids that want to die because people make fun of their weight. It’s serious business to know the difference between an admitted sociopath and a guy trying to be playful. These guys make fake accounts to bully people. You are fine with it. I am clear now.

          • Felonious Punk

            I wonder if guys like you and JI sit there at the end of the day and think “Damn…I spent all day/week getting clowned on the old Grunge Report site by guys named Felonious Punk and Pink Taco.”

            I’d probably want to off myself too, if that were the case. And Guns n’ Roses still fucking suck.

          • venusinfarse

            Life has been pretty cruel to you and you have over 2500 posts of rambling nonsense on this account alone to prove how important your time is.

          • Felonious Punk

            Guilty of everything, lol

          • Jimmy Intense

            If anything, I have contemplated just how truly pathetic an existence you must have to make this site and your status around here seem so important. Again making fun of the disabled and proving you’ve been banned and are rocking 2 (or is it 3) Disqus profiles shows the depth of your egoism. Joke’s on you hahahaha

          • ITURBIDE

            he didn’t like the band since 1992…so fucking what? do you care?…he calls Axl fat…big deal…Im sure Axl must be in home depressed eating ice-cream, crying and wishing death because some dude on a website about bands who hasn’t been relevant in two decades calls him fat…please, give me a break. maybe he needs to start calling Axl “over-weight american”…its that ok for you?

            besides, how many bullied kids do you think read this site? your arguments are ridiculous. You call him misogynist…dear lord, have you ever heard “one in a million” or “I just to love her” ? do you think GNR needs your protection? you are upset just because someone is more clever and makes fun of you. Again, if you don’t want to be “bullied” then don’t answer him.

            finally, you can’t say what I’m fine or not. As far as you know, I could be a man, a woman, an alien or a bunch of people. Im not fine with suicidal bullied kids you moron…the way you put together two different things is ridiculous and over reacted.

          • Felonious Punk

            Obliged, dude.

            Venusfarce is just some MYGNR troll who likes to argue and play pseudo-psychologist on Alt Nation. As you so easily spotted, the mere notion that he’d criticize *anyone* of being a bully or a mysogynist when he’s supporting a guy who is the poster boy for both says it all.

            Next he’ll be accusing us of thievery right after he’s plunked down $2,500 to tour his favorite band’s catering area before their Vegas circus show..

          • venusinfarse

            Young people read the comments. I think celebrities do get hurt by it and more so that people allow it. You seem to think I am stuck on the fat comments but I see him attacking everyone and everything and not liking anything except to kiss up. He commented again on all my poss and thinks I’m from Mygnr but I do not have an account there nor am I not interested in making friends on a forum. Some told me he was banned from Mygnr as Magisme. He is truly disturbed.

  • scott allen

    AC DC should do the right thing and bow out gracefully. without Brian, you are no longer the band paid to be seen. I wonder if they would have continued if it was Angus on the outs?

    • ITURBIDE

      They don’t because Angus owns AC/DC

      • Alan Russell

        Angus already said that he has a relative named Angus that will carry on for him when he decides to retire. Probably in 10 years from what I hear.

  • blrghh

    This is ridiculous. MSL is a total troll and you’d have to be high on paint thinner to believe this for a second.

  • ITURBIDE

    I like a lot of bands, but I love AC/DC. Without Malcolm Young, and now apparently without Brian Johnson…I don’t know…I have mixed feelings.

    Bon Scott was only 6 years with the band…Brian Johnson have 36 fucking years singing for the Youngs…and some people still calling him “The new guy”.

    Can AC/DC survive to a new singer again? I don’t know…perhaps a parade of big names could work live…but that sounds to me more like a circus show and less a rock concert.

    maybe is just me that deep inside I refuse to see one of my bands die without haven´t seen it in a concert.

    If I’m forced to throw names…Chris Robinson from The Black Crowes, Justin Hawkins from The Darkness, the guy from Jet or the guy from Airbourne.

  • Pink Taco

    Shame on Angus. Really. They’ve got tons of money and they don’t need to do this. Hopefully this is just gossip fodder.

  • Badbadbad

    Your website’s sources are horrible journalism. You guys basically go to a GNR fan forum and catch whatever bullshit conjectures people are making up and then report it as news.

    You think MSL is an insider and he’s got nothing but good writing skills.

    Pathetic.

    • Corndog

      Yet here you are eating it up like everyone else. Mission accomplished. Enjoy:)

    • Felonious Punk

      Actually, GNRTRUTH and MYGNR reportedly “make” Guns n’ Roses news up just so we’ll post it and spread the word. And Alt Nation, being an all-for-one-one-for-all news site in the name of rock music, is happy to help out.

      You can’t even legitimately fault Brett or Alt Nation for this shit because they’re not the original authors; they’re just picking up on a news story that was created elsewhere. So if you have a gripe, you’re barking up the wrong tree completely.

  • JMUP

    he can’t even manage to be Guns N Roses singer these days never mind AC/DC’s

  • Rocco

    Brian Johnson is as much AC DC as Angus Young and respectfully I go to their shows over 50 since 1983 for Brian as much as Angus…they sort of pulled it off without Malcom but once Phil was out, the sound is noticeably different. Angus is slower and the rhythm section is faster. While Malcom and Phil are as close to irreplaceable as you get, Brian is definitely irreplaceable. I am not going without Brian. Can’t believe Angus would treat a band mate this way. Very disappointed. Fingers crossed Brian is back.

  • Chris Bradbury

    No way. The only guy I can think of to do real justice to AC/DC’s songs is Phil Campbell from The Temperance Movement.. Still up and coming so would not eclipse the band… All this talk about Steve Tyler and Axle Rose is a joke. Let’s just be honest, it’s time to let go and enjoy the memories…

  • Nick Wilkins

    no way

  • Nick Wilkins

    want to throw some names iggy pop, alice copper or sammy hager but not axle please

  • Junior Moore

    Been Away Too Long was pretty “AC/DCish”. If we’re tossing around names, this would be light work for Cornell.

  • john zunich

    They make really good ear plugs for shooting where you can hear people talk but baffles loud noises. I cannot see doctor’s advising him to quit immediately. Teaser article. LOL

  • randy

    No mal,no Phil,no Brian.acdcless..go save your money go see a tribute band.. Oh throwing out names why not Donny Osmond

  • Raj

    As a guest singer it’s fine but as a permanent replacement for AC/DC I don’t think there would be a fit there. He’s 14 years younger so maybe Angus is taking that into consideration. After the GNR reunion tour is over maybe that’s what Axl will do next or retire if you believe the rumours.

  • Thaddeus lovelock

    Does that mean he would join AC/DC ?, that would be funny.

  • Thaddeus lovelock

    I don’t they keep playing for the money, I think money is not that important after a certain point. I think it’s more the thrill of performing.

  • pissed off

    Hell no just give me my money back love AC/DC just wouldn’t be the same

  • Moxyrocks

    Seriously!?! Come on, I’ve been a dc fan since 1980 and I’ve loved every minute of it. Times change, and fate unfortunately deals bitter blows.
    As much as I hate to say it, if it’s time to hang up the boots then that’s it. Don’t parade the band we fell in love with around to satisfy shows and figures. For god sake go out with some sort of dignity. We don’t want or need any other singer.

  • dakotablue

    “New singer” and “guest singer” are two different things.
    Maybe AC/DC should finish the tour due to commitments, but how many times can they replace their lead singer? They lucked out with the Bon Scott/Brian Johnson shuffle. What are the chances of getting another singer who can sound like that?
    Oh, and btw I think I just read most of these stories already.

  • Johnny Roger

    This author is a stupid asshole. A really stupid asshole who knows absolutely nothing about anything dealing with Guns N’ Roses or Axl Rose. The fact that these articles of his pop up as news articles in Google when searching for Gn’R news is an absolute joke. Shame on you, you’re an asshole.

    • Felonious Punk

      By author, are you referring to Brett?

      Because all he’s doing is reposting a rumor that was started by some choad named MSL over at a place called GNRTRUTH, of all names.
