The Hives singer, Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist, declared on Facebook that he is available to replace Brian Johnson in AC/DC. He wrote on The Hives’ Facebook page: “Very sad to hear Brian Johnson can’t do a bunch of AC/DC shows due to health problems. That man is a legend. I would like offer my sincerest well wishes and get wells. And if any help is needed, I put my foot forward and say: HERE I AM!” Pelle continues: “I have many many years of experience rocking the world’s biggest stages and, according to others, I am the greatest frontman in rock, plus judging from the reaction in Australia, your crowd already seems to really like me. Plus, I have already been singing those songs since I was six years old. So, AC/DC‬, please consider my application!”. Earlier this week ex-AC/DC singer Dave Evans also offered his services to cover the position.
