Rocker Axl Rose wants to continue as the frontman of AC/DC after the end of their current tour.
Axl, 54, was drafted in earlier this year (16) as a replacement for the band's usual lead singer Brian Johnson, who was forced to bow out of their Rock or Bust World Tour due to hearing problems.
His hiring in place of Brian has proved controversial with AC DC fans, and he has been forced to perform from a specially designed throne after breaking his foot while playing with his reunited band GUNS N' ROSES last month (Apr16).
Despite Axl's injury troubles and future commitments with his old band, AC DC guitarist Angus Young says the singer is keen to continue as the group's frontman after their current tour ends in June (16).

Rocker Axl Rose is back on his feet after breaking his ankle just as the Guns N' Roses classic line-up reunion was taking shape.
The singer spent the first shows of the band get together seated on a throne loaned to him by Dave Grohl, who used it onstage after breaking his leg last year (15), but he proved his injury is beginning to heal by walking onstage for the encore of AC DC's 16 May (16) gig in Belgium.
Axl, who has replaced Brian Johnson as the Australian band's frontman for the remainder of their Rock or Bust tour, belted out half of Highway to Hell on his feet before returning to his throne.
He also stood, sporting a bulky metal cast, for part of the band's Riff Raff.

Lenny Kravitz and Alice in Chains will join the reunited Guns N' Roses classic line-up for its 2016 North American tour.
Kravitz and Alice In Chains will open select dates on the Not In This Lifetime tour, which begins on 23 June (16) at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan.
Alice In Chains will serve as the opening act for the first five dates. The rockers supported Guns N’ Roses when Axl Rose, Slash and Duff MCKagan performed at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas last month (Apr16).
The trio reunited onstage as Guns N’ Roses for the first time since 1993 for a show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. They have also performed a pair of shows at the Coachella festival in California and in Mexico City.
Iron Maiden's musical comeback has landed them two nominations at this year's (16) Kerrang! Awards in the U.K.
The veteran heavy metal band released The Book of Souls last year (15), marking their first offering in five years. The hiatus proved to be worth the wait after the record was nominated for Best Album by bosses at the British rock magazine.
They were also nominated for Best British Band, going up against Bring Me The Horizon, Enter Shikari, Biffy Clyro, and Asking Alexandria.
The latter two bands also scored two nods, with Biffy Clyro competing for Best Event (Edinburgh's Hogmanay), while Asking Alexandria will face off against Iron Maiden in the Best Album category for their album, The Black.

During the first headline set of the weekend at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, the rockers covered Bowie's Heroes during their set, as well as playing a snippet of November Rain by Saturday's headliners GUNS N' ROSES.

Axl Rose is to join AC/DC as lead singer, replacing Brian Johnson, for the remainder of their world tour.
The Australian rockers said in a statement on Saturday (16Apr16) that the GUNS N' ROSES frontman would be taking over duties from Brian, who has had to bow out of touring in an effort to save his hearing.
They announced last month (Mar16) that they would be rescheduling a handful of US tour dates after Brian was advised by doctors to "stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss". The rockers also confirmed today that "the 10 postponed US shows will be rescheduled and announced imminently, also with Axl Rose".
"AC DC band members would like to thank Brian Johnson for his contributions and dedication to the band over the years. As much as we want this tour to end as it started, we support Brian's decision to save his hearing," they said on Saturday.

Bach is a familiar face to G N' R fans as he has been a frequent guest at the group's live gigs since 2006, joining Axl to belt out the Appetite for Destruction track.
However, Saturday's show marked Bach's first time in the limelight with the classic G N' R line-up, featuring guitarist Slash and bassist Duff MCKagan, and he revelled in the opportunity to rock out with the iconic musicians.
