Is AC/DCís still-unconfirmed hookup with Axl Rose messing with your head? Iím feeling pretty good about it, though some of the math confuses me.

Letís assume itís actually going to happen.

Axl Rose will do an excellent job fronting the band; he is a gifted and almost historically charismatic vocalist whose skills have not significantly dimmed with time. Now, in purely musical terms he might not be the ideal singer for AC/DC and their grinding, stuttering, riffing, rasping and grimacing material. Both Brian Johnson and Bon Scott had a chesty bottom to their strangulated yelp that Axl lacks, and when/if you hear those AC/DC classics without that distinctive mixture of cat-yowl and dog-woof that both Johnson and Scott excelled in, youíll hear how odd it sounds (which is not a criticism of Axlóhe has a pure and bold high-end, somewhere between a tenor sax and an air-raid siren, that any singer would envy).
