Phil Rudd: "I'm a changed man, but I'm still every bit the rock drummer I was"
The former AC/DC drummer has a new Job, but he clearly still misses his old one
The rock world looked on in disbelief when in late 2014 AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was arrested and charged with attempting to procure a murder, threatening to kill and possession of drugs. As the band severed ties with him, and eventually re-hired Chris Slade for the following year’s AC/DC world tour, Angus Young was a master of understatement a when he remarked that Rudd had “got himself into a bit of a pickle”.
Having served eight months of home detention and insisted his life is changed, the drummer continues rehab with a club tour to promote a solo album that’s called, perhaps appropriately, Head Job.
