Def Leppard's Joe Elliott Rips AC/DC on Handling of Brian Johnson

AC/DC postponed, then ultimately rescheduled a number of shows last year after singer Brian Johnson was forced to exit the band due to serious hearing issues. The band would enlist the help of Guns N' Roses' Axl Rose to take over lead vocal duties to finish the tour, but AC/DC's future is now up in the air.

Def Leppard's Joe Elliott voiced his opinions on the chain of events surrounding AC/DC during a recently released interview on the Life in the Stocks podcast. 

In the interview, Elliott says:

I wouldn't have done it like that. I can't speak for Angus and his team as to what their reasons were for doing what they did but considering that we had a drummer lose an arm and we waited for him, the way they dealt with it was not the way I would have done it, put it that way.

Although he may have disagreed with Young's decision to continue the tour with Axl Rose, Elliott thinks Rose did a fine job filling in, saying, "I saw some stuff on YouTube and I think he did a pretty good job actually."
