This was obviously an April Fool's gag. For the full list of our 2016 jokes, head here.

There have been some rumors circulating recently that Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose has been tapped to finish out the postponed dates of AC/DC‘s North American tour. TMZ - as reported earlier this week - have photographed Axl Rose and members of AC/DC emerging from the same rehearsal studio in Atlanta, GA this past weekend.

Today both bands have made a surprising official joint statement, announcing Axl Rose as permanent new AC/DC frontman and revealing also retired Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil as Guns N’ Roses' new vocalist. The move comes as a result of AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson being forced to stop touring by his doctor or risk permanent hearing loss.

Vince Neil will be already performing with Guns N’ Roses on the band's upcoming 2016 Summer Tour. AC/DC's North American Tour will be rescheduled and new dates announced next week.

Read all details about Guns N’ Roses' and AC/DC's official joint statement now on TMZ HERE.

TMZ also revealed in a separate article that Motley Crue will recruit Wes Scantlin from the now defunct Puddle of Mudd as he is the only one who can hold his liquor as well as the rest of the band. Plus he will bring an extra bar stool to prop up Mick.

GNR changes via VN will include actually starting the set on time and frequent use of the tit cam. May be an improvement.

Has anyone else noticed that the older Axl and VN get, the more they resemble Sam Kinison?

Yeah right. What's next? Gary Holt permanently joining Exodus to stay in Slayer and someone replacing him in Exodus? That would suck if that actually happens.

according to metal injection, adlers appetite, the side project featuring steven adler, they have been in talks with brian johnson to do a few shows together since these rumors began, johnson whos is legally deaf will have to use a karaoke type of teleprompting device to know when to sing and when the chores's are to be able to be in sync with the band during live shows.

Rumour also has it that Nuno Bettencourt will be making a guest appearance on next Beyonce triple album, whilst Beyonce will return the favor by taking Hurtsmile as an opening act on her forthcoming Balkan tour (including Moldova as a bonus country). Also Kim Kardashian is supposely going to jump the last train from Armenia to make guest appearance on that extra show. Where is the connection with Neil? Well, I guess he boned them both in the VIP lodge while Axl was desperately trying to catch that middle section note on Sweet child o mine. I dont see the AC DC connection here so that does puzzles me a bit...

^^^That's utter horse sh!t. No way Beyonce would ever release a double album, let alone a triple. She will release them one at a time and make triple the money each time.

I'd prefer Vince Neil with AC/DC.
Anyway, this is less April's fools than you think.
Axl Rose may become the permanent singer of AC/DC.

Blindgreed... you are underrating Beyonce! Well it's true that she might only speak of releasing an album and the record companies will pay her triple that amount in advance but...she is an artist with big A and she wants to release a cohesive, tight and thematic A(lbum) that will last forever! And that was the main point of my comment. You are definetely not serious!

You want serious on an April Fool's story? lmao

I did get a chuckle out of your comment. Beyoncé is indeed an Artist with a big 'A', and she might release something cohesive, tight and thematic out of said 'A'. I doubt it will last forever though.

(Autocorrect automatically put the tilde on Beyoncé's name... interesting)
