Original AC/DC singer Dave Evans ready to replace Brian Johnson
Original AC/DC singer Dave Evans was recently interviewed by The Sydney Morning Herald, you can read some excerpts below.
He said that his fans would want him step in for the band's current frontman Brian Johnson, who has been advised by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss. "When I perform around the world the fans love my music and my performances and I hear what they tell me. That's what they all tell me. They're pretty appreciative of my vocals and performances."
He continued: "A lot of people make jokes about going deaf from listening to loud music. It's never been a problem for me. I just thought it was sad news. It's your lifeblood as a singer, live performances are so personal, without the crowd and the adrenalin, it's going to be hard for him. Performances are the big highs in our lives."
Evans added that his return to AC/DC will probably never happen: "It would be nice to do one guest performance. Former members were all part of the band no matters what era they were from."
Evans also said that he though AC/DC could continue, even without Johnson. "So long as Angus Young, is there in his uniform... it's a branding thing now, the name AC/DC is almost bigger than the members of the band itself. It's a massive thing all over the world."
