Cheap Trick's Robin Zander Offers To Sing For AC/DC

(Radio.com) Cheap Trick's Robin Zander has offered to fill in for AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson. AC/DC was recently forced to re-schedule ten shows of their U.S. tour after Johnson had "been advised by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss." In the same statement, the band promised to make up the dates in April, likely with a guest vocalist.

"I'd love to do that," the singer told Rolling Stone. "But I'd want the blessing of Brian [Johnson]. I wouldn't go there as a slap in the face to him. But if he said, 'Go ahead,' I would do it. And I'd donate the money to somebody.

"They're AC/DC. People want to hear those songs. Sure, they want to hear them with Brian. But if Brian isn't there, they can get someone else. I don't know what else to say, but I know I'd be heartbroken if something happened to me and I couldn't sing in Cheap Trick." Read more here.
