AC/DC Receive Another Temp Singer Offer

(Classic Rock) Howlin' Pelle Almqvist of The Hives has offered a public application to AC/DC to stand-in for Brian Johnson on a series of postponed US dates. AC/DC halted the Rock Or Bust tour last week after Johnson was ordered by doctors to stop performing over fears he could lose his hearing.

The band have vowed to rescheduled 10 US concerts later in the year - likely with a guest vocalist - and Almqvist is throwing his hat in the ring for the gig after the Swedish outfit supported AC/DC on an Australian tour late last year.

Almqvist writes on Facebook: "Very sad to hear Brian Johnson canīt do a bunch of AC/DC shows due to health problems. That man is a legend. I would like offer my sincerest well wishes and get wells, and if any help is needed, I put my foot forward and say: Here I am.

"I have many many years of experience rocking the world's biggest stages and, according to others, I am the greatest frontman in rock, plus judging from the reaction in Australia your crowd already seems to really like me. Plus, I have already been singing those songs since I was six-years-old.

"So AC/DC, please consider my application. Feel free to spread the word, fans." Read more here.
