Of course I don't know how "ready" anything could be (especially if Slash n' Duff would have to add their parts), but maybe (just maybe) it's easier for Axl to record for another band, in which he won't have to deal much with the record company guys etc. (assuming that Angus & his management would be doing all this)...

I definitely think it is easier. With AC/DC I suppose Angus will do all the writing and Axl can just focus on singing. It is also such a distinct and simple style of music; with GN'R Axl seems to have to push boundaries. With AC/DC he can relax a bit and enjoy the simplicity.

On a "closing note" for this "side project" of Axl, I just found this article:

https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/13038559/axl-rose-saved-acdc/amp/

GUNS N’ ROSES hellraiser Axl Rose has proved to be the saviour of AC/DC, who have reunited and recorded a new album.

Four years ago the singer offered his services after the Aussie stadium superstars lost vocalist Brian Johnson to hearing problems midway through their 2016 tour — with many fans fearing the worst for the band.

But despite Axl’s wild reputation, he proved a positive influence, prompting their reunion after a four-year hiatus — and unexpected new album, Power Up.

It’s a record many feared would never materialise, but as lead guitarist and co-founder Angus Young explains: “We’ve had our fair share of ­tragedies. Back in 1980, we lost our lead singer Bon Scott and that was a very dark patch for us. But it was my brother (Malcolm) who contacted me at the time and said that instead of moping about, we should just keep on doing what we had been doing before.

“In 2016 it looked very difficult again. We were at another unknown juncture because with Brian’s hearing problems we didn’t know what would happen.

“There was a real risk of him going deaf if we carried on, and none of us wanted that.

“So we had to cancel the rest of the tour with no idea what would happen next, but we were lucky enough that Axl Rose stepped in to help us out. It wasn’t planned like that — he got in touch and we’ll be forever thankful and grateful he did it.”

But Axl came with a ­reputation for hard partying and unruly behaviour, and teetotal Angus adds: “I’d heard a lot of things too. But I talked to him one-on-one and he was very respectful to me and the others.

“He would listen. We said, ‘OK, we’ve got to get some rehearsals to get this happening’, and he fully committed and went about it very professionally.

“I don’t know if I can say we tamed him, but I can only say that when we were on the road he was there with us.

“He was very respectful. If we were there to do the show, he was there, and he was there at the same time as us, ready to go.”

But despite the excitement of    reviving the band, Angus admits they still miss Malcolm.

He adds: “I feel him there, even when we were in the studio – I’m still looking for him. He had such a ­character too and you always felt his presence.

“I always looked to Malcolm as the guy who would say ‘No Angus, do better’. I trusted his judgment. Now I have to put on his hat and think, ‘How would Mal want it?’ ”

Angus explained: “Brian has had serious hearing problems but had been keeping us updated while he worked with a specialist. He’s had some technology implanted – it has really changed the game. He’s so happy with the results.

“We did a rehearsal and Brian wanted the full stage on with our amps and the equipment – and he couldn’t believe the results.”

POWER Up is their 17th studio album and comes six years after their last release, Rock Or Bust, which went to No1 in 12 countries.
