Either way it's a great shame how AC/DC appear to have come to an end (Are you going to be happy having paid £85 to see guest singers?).

Saw this on the FAQ.

More speculation:

A source close to AC/DC has confirmed comedian Jim Breuer’s recent allegation (later retracted) that the band have parted ways (kicked to the curb) with long time singer Brian Johnson under dubious circumstances.

“Everything Mr. Breuer originally said is basically the truth, in a roundabout way,” said the source.

The informant, speaking out only under the condition of anonymity, says it’s his loyalty to Brian Johnson as to why he’s risking his job by speaking out. “Jonna’s [Brian] a fab guy and has been treated like shit. He does have hearing issues but not as serious as they’re saying. This was just an excuse to fire the guy, basically.”

The insider denied claims that Krokus singer Marc Storace was contacted by the band’s record label to possibly replace Johnson. “No, Marc was never considered for the gig or contacted by management.” The band is reportedly holed up in a secret location, auditioning singers to finish the remaining U.S. tour dates and beyond.

The source said lead guitarist (and sole remaining original member) Angus Young has narrowed the search down to two or three guys, all relative unknowns outside of their respective countries, putting to rest rumors of a possible mashup of classic rock royalty. “They’re not well known names. The band never considered any big name vocalists to replace Brian. I think they wanted to find a fresh new talent.”

“The plan is to decide on the singer within the next couple of weeks, maybe sooner, reschedule the tour and get back out on the road as if nothing’s happened.” Asked if the band plans on retiring after the tour, the informant is confident the band will carry on. “No, no, part of this audition process has been working on new song ideas. I think Angus wants to get back in the studio after a much shorter break this time. It’s no longer a band anymore but a brand, similar to KISS I suppose, which is a bit nauseating honestly.”

While casual fans will be happy to learn the band has no plans on slowing down, die-hard AC/DC fans are saying they would rather see the group go out on a high note, rather than tarnish their legacy by employing a karaoke singer. “It’s been hard enough losing Malcolm Young and Phil Rudd,” says AC/DC fanatic Steve Wilkinson, “now to see Brian go, well, how can you even call yourself AC/DC anymore? I don’t want to see them playing county fairs like Lynyrd Skynyrd, that would be pathetic.”

Johnson replaced original AC/DC frontman Bon Scott back in 1980, and later that year released one of the biggest selling albums of all-time, Back in Black. AC/DC was formed in Sydney, Australia, in 1973 by brothers Angus and Malcolm Young and have sold over 200 million albums worldwide.

Agreed that this may all be BS and and until Angus/Brian make a comment publicly it remains nothing more than rumour.

However theres no smoke without fire and something is definintely going on within the AC/DC Camp.
