Hives frontman Pelle Almqvist may as yet be disappointed, because the rumour going around at the moment is that Axl Rose has signed up to replace Brian Johnson as AC/DC’s frontman.

As previously reported, the band postponed their remaining US tour dates earlier this month after Johnson was told that he risked “total hearing loss” if he did not stop performing with immediate effect. The band then promised to rescheduled the missed dates, saying that it was likely that they would work with a replacement vocalist in order to do so.

Rumours that Rose is being lined up to step in started circulating last week, and on Friday the Guns N Roses frontman and AC/DC guitarist Angus Young were photographed separately emerging from the same rehearsal studio by TMZ.

It was also reported by Alternative Nation last week that Ross Young, son of former AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young, actually confirmed the news in two now deleted Facebook posts.
