AC/DC Singer Call Humbled Airbourne Frontman


(Classic Rock) Airbourne drummer Ryan O'Keeffe says his brother Joel was "humbled" when some fans wanted him to front AC/DC. His name was mentioned as a possible replacement for frontman Brian Johnson, who was forced to step back from AC/DC or risk going deaf earlier this year.

His place was eventually taken by Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose for the remainder of their Rock Or Bust tour - and while Joel never got the call, Ryan says he would have done it in a heartbeat if the opportunity arose.

He tells The Metal Voice: "He wasn't officially approached but he was humbled by a lot of comments with some people saying he should do it.

"He said, 'If that ever happened, the first thing I'd do is call Brian and get his permission and the second thing I'd do is call a cab to the airport.'" Read more here.
