It's official, after the fiasco of Brian Johnson is going deaf, no he's not, etc, etc, AC/DC (read Angus Young) announce that Axl Rose is now the lead singer.
For me basically the story is that Angus Young was displeased with the falling numbers of fans attending the part II of the Rock Or Bust tour. Why did Angus decide on a part two? $$$, that's why.
With a 70-year-old Brian Johnson unable to perform more than 3 concerts a week to bring in the bucks Angus decided on jettisoning him and bringing in a big name rock star to try and shore up his losses.
I have no doubt that Brian was "kicked to the curb".
Angus Young has gone against the spirit of AC/DC. He has been ruthless and calculating. The reason why Angus has been able to pull this off is, very simply, one word, one man: Malcolm. Malcolm Young, the founder of the band is no longer around. It was always his band. With his retirement due to dementia Angus finally managed to emerge from the giant Malcolm's shadows only to fall into the abyss of greed. Ladies and gentlemen: AC/DC is dead. Behold The Angus Young Band.
