Original AC/DC Singer Interested In Filling In For Brian Johnson

Ever since AC/DC announced that a guest vocalist would likely fill in on their rescheduled U.S. tour dates, many names have been bandied around, but one singer has officially thrown his hat in the ring.

In an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald, original singer Dave Evans expressed interest in taking up the task and said fans “love my music and my performances” and “They’re pretty appreciative of my vocals.”

While Evans isn't holding his breath on fronting AC/DC again, he said "it would be nice to do one guest performance."  So far, no guest vocalists have been announced.

Evans was in AC/DC in from 1973-1974 and recorded one single (“Can I Sit Next To You, Girl”) with the band, which was later re-recorded with Bon Scott.  If you never heard the Evans version, take a listen to it below.  It is night and day compared to the version recorded with Scott.

Johnson was ordered to stop touring or risk total hearing loss, which in an interview with Howard Stern, he said was the result of racing cars without ear plugs and not from music.
