In recent weeks ( march 2016) Brian Johnson of ac/dc has started to lose his hearing which is horrible. Why if he can't hear he won't hear his band playing,what/when to sing ECT. I truly hope he gets better ( we need him). There has been word on a replacement for him, don't know if its short term or forever. This list is for people who would work for a good replacement to TRY( I repeat TRY) to fill Brians spot. Be aware these vocalist - try to imagine them singing AC/DC songs and what it would sound like.

Doesn't have enough roughness in his voice like Brian and Bon. He's still great though

My father had tickets to an AC/DC concert and had to get a refund because of Brain Johnson's hearing loss. He doesn't want to go anymore because he claims it won't be same. I can't help but agree. - Ku
