The short answer: Reportedly.
God, I hate that word. I "reportedly" have a My Little Pony tattoo on my right butt cheek. Anyone can report anything today. Fact: Johnson was advised by doctors to "stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss". Here's what's being "reported":
- Axl Rose could be set to fill in for Brian Johnson as the frontman of AC/DC for the rest of the tour
- The AC/DC official website confirming that the remaining dates of their US tour will be "made up later in the year, likely with a guest vocalist"
- The rumors started flying after Axl Rose was allegedly "flown in" to the US city to audition with the group
- Guns N' Roses fansite GnR Truth had previously alleged that Axl Rose was spotted in Atlanta recently, further speculating that he might have been auditioning to link up live with AC/DC
- Representatives of both AC/DC and Guns N' Roses haven't responded to inquiries about these reports
Got $12.2 mil lying around? Here's an idea! Buy Keith Richards New York City penthouse apartment. He bought it less than two years ago. Keith and his wife Patti bought it for $10.5 million. It has four bedrooms, and the best part, it includes a Sonos sound system installed throughout the entire apartment. As you can tell, the patio overlooks much of lower Manhattan. Check out more pics of the place here.
Is this a video trick? My brain just exploded.
Bad Company co-founder Mick Ralphs will not be with the band this summer on their tour with Joe Walsh. Rich Robinson from The Black Crowes will sit in for him. Mick wasn't up for the travel. Rich Robinson is fired up to play with Simon Kirke. He is one of his all-time favorite drummers. "To be able to play with Paul and Simon is such an honor." The "One Hell Of A Night Tour" starts May 12th in Dallas and runs through July 3rd in Nashville.
If you want to see this tour, you'll have to travel. Hey guys, what's up with skipping Baltimore & DC????

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Tray Walker is in critical condition after a motorcycle accident last night in his hometown of Miami. Walker was riding a Honda dirt bike with no lights and wearing dark clothing when he collided with a Ford Escape at about 8 p.m. ET Thursday. John Harbaugh said, "This is devastating news. Our prayers and hopes are with Tray and his family tonight."
An English countryside retreat where Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones died is up for sale. It's called Cotchford Farm and was the inspiration for the Winnie the Pooh books. Brian Jones used to vacation there, and drowned in the pool on property in 1969. "Death by misadventure" was the phrase on his death certificate.
Keith Richards called it the "Winnie-the-Pooh's House," has said that the property manager Frank Thorogood confessed to murdering Brian Jones on his deathbed. Janet Lawson, the girlfriend of the Stones' then-tour manager, said the same thing to London's Daily Mail in an interview.
Wanna buy it? Ya better be ready to shell out $2.8 million. In the eerie video below, you can see footage of the property, the pool, all while listening to the great Stones song "No Expectations". Honestly, it freaks me out a bit and I'm not quite sure why.
