Why is the main picture outdated?[edit]

The current picture shows an outdated lineup from 2009. Malcolm Young, Brian Johnson, Phil Rudd, and Cliff Williams are no longer members of the band. The picture should be replaced to show the current lineup of Angus Young, Axl Rose, Stevie Young, and Chris Slade. Wikitam331 (talk) 03:40, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

The photo is of what might be regarded as the "classic" AC/DC line-up (Bon fans will disagree). Photos with the appropriate licensing from the Rock or Bust tour could be used in the article, but I'd still prefer a "classic line up" for the main pic. MaxBrowne (talk) 05:52, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
Seriously? Too right, Bon fans will disagree. I'm just surprised that any AC/DC fans would not consider the line-up prior to Bon's death to be the "classic" line-up! As for a current line-up, surely it's now Angus & whoever he wishes to recruit, if there is even to be any more AC/DC. Gwladys24 (talk) 13:16, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
Best leave it until we get more news, which could be months, years or never. Flat Out (talk) 05:24, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

It's also good to keep in mind that this page is to discuss issues regarding the main page and not a fan page forum to discuss your personal opinions on what constitutes the "classic line-up" or what your personal preference is for the main pic. That's irrelevant here. Please stay on topic. (Sellpink (talk) 03:12, 3 August 2017 (UTC))

Putting my two cents here. I've seen the image change over the years bouncing back and forth from Bon Scott to Brian Johnson led AC/DC. "Classic AC/DC" is too opinionated to justify the use of an image. The image should reflect the band in it's current state as much as possible unless the band has been disbanded for quite sometime with a more notable image of the band used properly. Since AC/DC was active relatively recently with several new members the image should reflect the Axl Rose led AC/DC.Acdcguy1991 (talk) 17:23, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

Who is the lead singer of the group?[edit]

It's been attempted in many recent edits to restore Brian Johnson as the current lead singer. However, this is both unsourced and inaccurate, according to this blabbermouth article written on July 30, 2017, where it is stated that Johnson is apparently not returning to the group. Claiming that the article is outdated should be accompanied by a reliable source, otherwise these edits are simply introducing incorrect information, and could be interpreted as vandalism. -- Radiphus 14:12, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

I havn't heard any changes since Rose was announced as the new frontman. I could be out of date - FlightTime (open channel) 14:44, 20 August 2017 (UTC)
As far as i know, there has been no announcement of a new lead singer. They may keep bringing in guest vocalists for future projects. We need to decide on either putting Rose with the other past members, without replacing him with anybody else (definetely not Johnson), or just leave him there with the other current members of the group until further notice. -- Radiphus 15:01, 20 August 2017 (UTC)
