Everyone is talking about how good Axl Rose played for AC/DC including Accept’s Wolf Hoffman.
Axl Rose started to play with the Australian rock band after doctors advised Brian Johnson to take a break from AC/DC tour or he could suffer from total loss of hearing.
“I’m sure they had good reasons why they went with Axl. Quite honestly, everybody said… I’ve heard a lot of people bitching about Axl and stuff, and I thought what I heard sounded pretty damn good to me,” Hoffman told Australia’s Sticks For Stones in a recent interview. Hoffman believed Rose has proven his critics that he can still deliver the same performance that he did back in the days. Hollfman added Rose reminded him of the backlash Accept received when Mark Tornillo started playing with the band.
