(New Rock Times) For today's wild rumor mill report: The rumor linking Axl Rose with the temporary frontman of AC/DC has been circulating rock n' roll circles now for some weeks. Atlanta Radio 100.5 DJ Jason Bailey let the cat out of the bag on his radio show that he had received intel from an unnamed source that Axl was all but confirmed to front the band for the rest of the tour.

On his radio show Jason Bailey said: "This is what I'm being told, Axl was meeting with the AC/DC group, because it's all but a done deal that Axl will front AC/DC for the 10 remaining shows. All 10, including Atlanta."

"From what I was told, this was all kind of new inside information to me, Angus is a very black and white guy. He's like, Brian, for health reasons, can't continue fronting the band.

He continued: "He was supposed to retire after the last tour, so they wanted to continue going out on the road and continue making music, so if you can't do it, we appreciate your services, but the show must go on.

"They're in town, they were auditioning people for the job, and then they flew Axl in, again, this is from my source." Read more here.
