“I’d love to do that,” the singer told Rolling Stone. “But I’d want the blessing of Brian [Johnson]. I wouldn’t go there as a slap in the face to him. But if he said, ‘Go ahead,’ I would do it. And I’d donate the money to somebody. They’re AC/DC. People want to hear those songs. Sure, they want to hear them with Brian. But if Brian isn’t there, they can get someone else. I don’t know what else to say, but I know I’d be heartbroken if something happened to me and I couldn’t sing in Cheap Trick.”

AC/DC was recently forced to re-schedule ten shows of their U.S. tour after Johnson had “been advised by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss.” In the same statement, the band promised to make up the dates in April, likely with a guest vocalist.

Then on March 15th comedian Jim Breuer dropped a bombshell on his podcast, saying that Johnson believed the band had unceremoniously moved on without him. Rumors have swirled that Axl Rose will replace Johnson, at least for the re-scheduled dates.
