Legendary rocker Alice Cooper has told RollingStone.com that he is excited by the news that Axl Rose will be fronting AC/DC on the next leg of the latter band’s upcoming world tour. “I just think that’s such a unique combination,” Alice said. “Whoever has tickets to that show has got the golden ticket, because who doesn’t want to see that?

Cooper said that he heard about the pairing a while ago, but didn’t believe it at first. “At first I thought it was an April Fool’s thing,” he said. “I went, ‘Oh, come on.’ Then I started thinking about it and said, ‘You know, his voice is absolutely perfect for that band. That might just work.‘”
