What about Marc Storace?

AC/DC singer rumor roulette continues as there appears to be another name in the mix to replace frontman Brian Johnson, who the band says faced complete hearing loss if he had continued with their previously scheduled tour commitments.
Rob Liotti, the former Honeygun singer and the actor who has been selected to portray Bon Scott in a biopic about the late AC/DC frontman, says that he has been in contact with the band about replacing Johnson, according to BraveWords.

They report that Liotti had this to say, "Yes, I will confirm that I have had contact with the band - both directly and through third parties close to the AC/DC camp, but that's really all I can say."

He added, "I received a call from a fan in France today who said he felt I was the guy for the job. He is friends with a Young family member and insisted that he was making a call to recommend me. You have to love people that dedicated."

Liotti also had this to say about Krokus singer Marc Storace, who is also said to be in consideration for the job, "Marc is a good vocalist and I personally like his work. Ironically, I know former Krokus drummer, Steve Pace, and we have jammed together. The night we met, Steve was quick to say that Marc and I reminded him of one another.

"I think I'm a bit grittier than Marc to be honest. I've had a lot more practice with the Bon Scott era stuff, but he can clearly pull that off. It's the music post-Bon that is the issue. I can do both..."

It is unclear what direct contact he has had with the band about the possible gig. He says that he has "not been contacted about an audition. They do have sound files of me singing a few of their songs. They clearly know who I am given the Bon Scott film project.

"At this point, it is up to Angus Young. If he feels like I'm the guy, I'm happy to help complete their tour dates. Hopefully they can get over the fact I'm 6'2 and American."

And another article:

Krokus singer Marc Storace says he turned down the chance to audition for AC/DC after Bon Scott passed away. Now that the band is rumored to be searching for a new singer once more, he wouldn’t mind having another shot at the gig.
“I wasn’t interested at all,” Storace said in a 2013 interview when the subject of his brush with AC/DC came up. “I was happy in Switzerland, Krokus started just to break through internationally — even in the United States. We were number one everywhere. In the band, there was this great camaraderie. I did not wanted to leave to go anywhere else. I was here at home. I am a loyal dog.”
The singer who ultimately got the job, Brian Johnson, has more than established himself during a nearly 40-year run with AC/DC. But in the wake of recent reports suggesting Johnson may no longer be able to tour due to hearing loss, Storace has made it clear he wouldn’t turn down another audition — and has even hinted that talks may already have begun.
“There’s my loyalty to Krokus, but the guys would understand if the offer came and I would certainly take it up this time and go for an audition,” Storace told BlastEcho. “Then it’s up to [AC/DC lead guitarist] Angus [Young] to decide. For me, AC/DC is Angus Young — no offense to Brian Johnson. I think Brian Johnson did a magnificent job with his special unique kind of voice. But losing your hearing is not a nice thing. It’s like losing our eyesight for a musician.”
Asked whether anyone from the band had reached out to him, Storace admitted they hadn’t, but seemed to suggest that he’d received overtures from execs at Krokus and AC/DC’s shared label, Sony. “I actually didn’t even have to call Sony. They were already on the ball,” said Storace. “This thing is not an easy thing to decide. I don’t know what’s happening and I don’t wanna ask. I’m concentrating on my life and if they decide it’s gonna be someone else, I’ll continue with my life like I’ve always [done].”

He's sitting by his phone as we speak. Periodically he yells "RING, DAMMIT!" at it.

If replacing Brian is the case, (which I don't like the idea), just get a Bon sound alike and a Brian sound alike and pay homage to both eras.

Too late, they are calling me tomorrow. LOL.

Some are saying Rob Halford is going to do the 10 shows, but I doubt that, just people making speculations, etc.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Whitfield Crane would be the choice, that guy sang a few AC/DC
songs on tribute albums and he was FLAWLESS! I'm not a huge Ugly Kid Joe fan, but Crane is the man!

I'd 2nd that nominee. He does a killer Bon Scott impression. After they tossed Dan Nelson and before Joey came back, his name was thrown around the rumor mill to sing for Anthrax. I would've liked to hear that.

There is a rumor going around that they have hired Axl Rose as the touring singer.

It's a little early for April Fool's pranks, isn't it?

Well, they have done a ripping cover of 'Whole Lotta Rosie' back in the day.



And just looking for that clip, I see that Axl and Co. have kept that in the setlist over the years.

I think most folks will call it a Train Wreck of Unparalleled Proportions or possibly the First Sign of the Apocalypse.
