Guns N' Roses Axl Rose Speculated to Record Album With AC/DC

Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose is expected to perform on ACDC's next studio album according to a recent unconfirmed report. This report of Noise11 by journalist Paul Cashmere, outlines that AC/DC are preparing to enter the studio not with Axl as a guest artist, but as the lead vocalist of the outfit.

The report read as follows:

" With Guns N' Roses dates running through until September, it is expected that the next AC/DC album with Axl Rose won't be ready until 2018. The chemistry between Axl Rose and Angus Young has inspired Angus to start planning another AC/DC record but Guns N' Roses touring commitments throughout 2017 will make it difficult to finalize the project. As all of the AC/DC shows were filmed it is possible fans may be treated to a live album with Rose from the 'Rock or Bust' tour prior to the new studio album. Despite the departure of Johnson and the retirement (at age 66) of bass player Cliff Williams after 40 years with the bands, Angus has vowed that AC/DC will continue".

Axl has been a steadfast stand in for Johnson since his departure from the band. Joining the band on tour last April, Axl has accompanied the band on tours that have spanned the expanse of the globe and has since been praised for his electrifying live performances. With other members of the band having departed for a myriad of different reasons, Axl's contribution to the band has become more and more involved throughout his occupation. Malcolm Young, the band's longtime rhythm guitarist announced that he would be leaving the band in 2014 due to the onset of dementia , whereas drummer Phil Rudd parted ways with the band after he was convicted of threatening to kill a former employee whilst also possessing drugs.

Whilst high speculative and under wraps, the album is expected to be ready for release around 2018.
