It Works Both Ways - AC/DC's Angus Young Joins Guns N' Roses at Coachella

by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

AC/DC’s Angus Young has performed with his new employee Axl Rose at Guns N Roses show at Coachella.

Young joined Rose for two AC/DC songs, Whole Lotta Rosie and Riff Raff during the AC/DC set.

The collaboration comes just hours after AC/DC announced they had employed the services of Mr Rose to replace the services of former employee Brian Johnson who was dumped when he told his boss that he was suffering a hearing issue.

Rose will join AC/DC for the European tour in May and then complete the remaining live dates with the band across North America later this year.

Guns N Roses are expected to tour Australia early 2017.
