JEALOUS OF AXL ROSE
“I was jealous that I didn’t get a chance, ’cause I can fuckin’ sing AC/DC pretty fuckin’ good too” Sebastian Bach

 

 

Blabbermouth — Sebastian Bach says that he was “jealous” when he first heard that Axl Rose landed the gig as the touring vocalist for AC/DC.

AC/DC postponed the last ten dates of its North American tour more than two years ago after doctors told singer Brian Johnson he faced a total loss of hearing if he did not stop touring immediately. AC/DC completed the tour in the summer of 2016, with the GUNS N’ ROSESfrontman as a “guest vocalist” and Johnson seemingly not returning to the group.

Bach, who has been friends with Rose since 1989, spoke about Axl getting the AC/DC job during a recent interview with “Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon”.

Asked what his reaction was when he first heard that Axl was going to be replacing Johnson on the road, Bach said: “I was jealous that I didn’t get a chance, ’cause I can fuckin’ sing AC/DCpretty fuckin’ good too, and I’m not just saying that. [Laughs]

“So, at first, I was, like, ‘Fuck, man!’ I was jealous,” he continued. “But then, of course, I understand, obviously, why he would ge the gig — because people don’t know how to sing anymore; it’s like a dying art.”

Bach went on to lament the lack of great new vocalists in rock, saying: “Maybe I haven’t heard any, but where is the new Jeff Buckley? Or where’s the new Steve Tyler? Okay, GRETA VAN FLEET — there’s the new Robert Plant; that’s for sure right there. But there’s a lack of original-sounding heavy metal vocalists. Unless I’m not hearing any. But I don’t know.
