Pash Cashmere of Australia's Noise11 says in no uncertain terms that "chemistry between Axl Rose and Angus Young has inspired Angus to start planning another AC/DC record."
The report has been couched by Ultimate Classic Rock as an "unconfirmed rumor," which notes that at no time has either AC/DC or Rose mentioned any sessions or plans of sessions between them.
Rose took over frontman duties in AC/DC in 2016 after Brian Johnson abruptly left the band over concerns for his damaged hearing.
Young and Rose spoke throughout the tour of their mutual admiration for one-another, but never mentioned working on new music together under the guise of AC/DC.
“Axl Rose fronting AC/DC was controversial,” the younger Cashmere said, “and if you didn’t like that combination, you will be horrified to learn there is an album on the way.”
Guns N' Roses has touring commitments throughout 2017, meaning Rose and Young likely wouldn't be able to work together until much later in the year, if at all until 2018.
