The Hives were sad to hear the news that AC/DC’s lead singer, Brian Johnson, would be taking some time off to deal with some health issues. For Hives frontman, Pelle Almqvist, that doesn’t mean that the rock is dead.
Almqvist, aka Howlin Pelle, took to the band’s Facebook page to reach out to the rock legends to offer his services as the new frontman of AC/DC.
As Howlin Pelle stated, he already has considerable experience fronting one of the most exciting bands in rock. Spin called The Hives the greatest live rock band on the planet in 2004, and now Almqvist wants to lead one of the greatest rock bands of all time.
Is it really that crazy to think that he could lead AC/DC? He already has the schoolboy uniform, and he has been singing their songs since he was a 6-year-old.
Here’s Pelle Almqvist, with The Hives, on their track, “Tick Tick Boom”.
Do you think he has what it takes?
