Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose has found another defender for his decision to perform with AC/DC.
Alice in Chains lead singer Willian DuVall said Rose has proven his detractors wrong when he played for the AC/DC with so much passion and intensity.
DuVall recalled on the Loudwire Podcast the time he talked to Rose at a party in Chicago. “He definitely has a certain vibe, and certain magic about him. He talks like a regular guy,” he said. Alice in Chains has opened several times on GNR recent reunion tour in the US.
DuVall also praised Axl Rose for shutting down his haters. He said most of Rose haters eat their words against the rock star. DuVall added that he is happy to see that a lot of the people were willing to say that they are wrong about Rose.
The GNR vocalists received backlash prior to his first show with AC/DC. The band’s biographer Jesse Fink even called AC/DC decision as the worst decision that the band has ever made. He added that fans are upset that band is not after the money. Rose filled in as temporary replacement for AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson, who was forced to skip the Rock or Bust tour due to hearing problems.
Axl Rose has gotten good reviews for his performances in both AC/DC and GNR tours. AC/DC is set to conclude its Rock or Bust tour in the US this month. Meanwhile, Guns N’ Roses recently wrapped up their Not In This Lifetime tour in the US.
The band is scheduled to kick off their Latin American reunion tour leg on October 27. Axl Rose and the rest of GNR also recently announced their Australia and New Zealand tour. The Not In This Lifetime tour in Australia is set in February 2017.
Let’s see if Axl Rose will also receive a warm welcome in AC/DC turf come 2017.
