In a recent interview with Eonmusic, formed AC/DC Drummer Chris Slade explained his thougths about Axl Rose’s performance with AC/DC.
He said that “I couldn’t believe the notes he hit; it was staggering”. Here’s the statement:
“Angus [Young, guitar] was running around like a schoolboy, you know?! It did reinvigorate the band. Brian is great, as we all know; he’s a great personality and a great guy.
Axl brought his voice to it. Like, I couldn’t believe the notes he hit; it was staggering. And I actually had no hope at all. When I heard that Axl was going to be in the band, I thought, ‘Oh, what?!’
Because I’d only ever heard that Guns N’ Roses voice, but all great singers, they can change the timbre of their voice, and wow, he hit notes that dogs can only hear.
It was unbelievable! I thought he did an amazing job. I could hear him very clearly because I use in-ear monitors, and it’s the best I’ve ever heard the band.”
A month ago, a canadian journalist claimed that AC/DC is working on a new studio album with Brian Johnson as lead singer.
