Original AC/DC Singer Offers To Reunite With Band

(hennemusic) Original AC/DC singer Dave Evans says he is willing to step in for Brian Johnson following word that the frontman has been advised by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss.

"When I perform around the world the fans love my music and my performances and I hear what they tell me," Evans explains to the Sydney Morning Herald. "They're pretty appreciative of my vocals and performances."

Evans was part of AC/DC's original lineup when it was formed by guitarist brothers Angus and Malcolm Young in Sydney, Australia in November of 1973; also included were bassist Larry Van Kriedt and drummer Colin Burgess.

The singer was featured on the band's debut single, 1974's "Can I Sit Next To You, Girl", and performed live with AC/DC until his dismissal in September 1974, when he was replaced by Bon Scott.

Evans and his fellow original lineup members are often overlooked in the history of AC/DC, failing to even be mentioned on the group's official website.

Maybe that's why the singer is not counting on a call from Angus Young. "It'll never happen," he says, "but it would be nice to do one guest performance. Former members were all part of the band no matter what era they were from." Check out the single featuring Evans and his live performance of "Highway To Hell" here.
