(Classic Rock) Cinderella singer Tom Keifer says he'd have been "humbled and honored" if he'd been asked fill in for Brian Johnson in AC/DC - but he doesn't think he'd have taken on the job.

Before the job was given to Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose, Keifer's was one of the names linked with the job once AC/DC revealed Johnson had been ordered to stop touring or risk going deaf and that they'd be continuing with a guest singer.

Keifer tells Zoiks! Online: "I've seen my name brought up online, and I just wanna say - I guess this is the first time I'm publicly saying this - if I were asked, I'd be very humbled and honored, but I would not leave my solo band. I love my band, and we're having a good time out here. This is my home.

"I just don't know that anyone can fill those shoes. Or if it's somebody who's known, it's kind of weird - then it's not AC/DC. It was so cool when they found Brian, because he wasn't really known. And then he became known and then he became the voice of AC/DC. They're one of the few bands who have been able to pull that off. I don't wanna even touch those shoes." Read more here.
