AC/DC auditioned a tribute band singer to replace Brian Johnson

A frontman for an AC/DC tribute band had an audition to replace the actual AC/DC’s Brian Johnson.

Lee Robinson, a construction worker and singer for AC/DC tribute act Thunderstruck, reportedly tried out for the chance to replace Brian Johnson in a two-hour audition which took place in Atlanta last month.

According to TeamRock, Robinson was discovered by AC/DC bassist Cliff Williams on YouTube and was flown to Atlanta to audition after a call from the band’s management firm.

He said: ‘Once they started playing I was just excited and was just standing there like, ‘what the hell. I’m playing with AC/DC’.

The audition apparently saw the band play with Robinson for almost two hours, testing the singer to the max with nearly every song on the Rock Or Bust tour set list.

‘They didn’t want a Brian Johnson copy. They wanted someone who could make it their own,’ he added.

AC/DC were left a frontman down after Brian was ordered to stop touring halfway through a string of US tour dates at risk of hearing loss. It was then confirmed last week that Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose will replace the singer to finish the current world tour.

But the real question is, would he have been a better choice than Axl ‘always bloody late’ Rose?

Judging by the tribute bands’ cover of Shoot To Thrill – if you closed your eyes, you might even mistake him for Brian Johnson himself.

What they say

Awesome band. would never know they are a cover band. They have so much heart and spirit and it truly shines through in every performance.

As a lifelong fan of AC/DC, I tend to be a pretty tough judge of tributes... but when I saw Thunderstruck, they really impressed me!  Whether they're covering classics from the Bon Scott era or songs from the Brian Johnson catalog, Thunderstruck nails it!

Whatever happens, you've got a hell of a voice.
