Axl Rose, lead singer of Guns n’ Roses and current guest vocalist on the AC/DC tour, has been an icon of rock since GnR first emerged in the mid-1980’s. His vocal talent – mixing a distinctive falsetto with hard rock vocal traditions – defined the bands first album, Appetite for Destruction, which at over 18 million copies sold, is the most popular debut album in US history. The record is regularly ranked by critics as one of the the greatest hard rock albums of all time.
When AC/DC’s Brian Johnson had to pull out of the band’s 2016 tour, Axl was invited to take his place. Performing with a broken foot, Axl has received excellent reviews for this 2016 pairing of rock legends.
