Torien recently voiced his admiration for Axl Rose’s commitment and hard work throughout that performance. He notably mentioned how the singer went above and above while playing the band’s difficult songs in 2016. Managing AC/DC’s repertoire, according to the BulletBoys frontman, was not an easy task; yet, Axl successfully accepted the challenge and put his heart and soul into it. Marq summarized his feelings towards Guns N’ Roses frontman by saying: “I’m so proud of [Axl] for doing what he’s doing out there.” He performed with AC/DC on their 2016 tour. He was there every night, giving it everything he had, and those songs aren’t easy, my brother. That’s some difficult singing… I commend him.

Hats off to my brother, and best wishes to Axl Rose.” During the interview, the musician’s insights provided a new perspective on Axl Rose’s time with AC/DC. His focus on Rose’s determination to tackling the difficult task of performing with the famous band not only highlighted the musician’s passion, but also presented a fresh side to him from the BulletBoys vocalist’s perspective.
