AC/DC Drummer Pleads Guilty to Death Threats and Drug Possession

Phil Rudd, world-known as drummer of group AC/DC had pleaded guilty to charges accusing him of possessing methamphetamine and marijuana, and threatening to kill an employee. Last year his story was different – he said to the judge that he was innocent. He is due to appear in a New Zealand court on June 26 when he will be sentenced. According to sources, his lawyer will then dispute the conviction.

AC/DC’s publicists offered no comment on the development of the story. The band’s guitarist Angus Young said last year that the band was “shocked” by charges brought against Rudd, adding, however, that the band had problems with him before. “When we were recording, it was quite difficult to just get him in the studio,” Young said. “When we were in London when we were starting up to do the video shoot and stuff and it was the same then. He didn’t show, you know? That’s something we’ve got to resolve. Phil’s got to sort himself out.”

At the end of last year, Rudd said he was eager to join the band again. “I’m going back to work with AC/DC and I don’t care who likes it or who doesn’t,” Rudd said. “I want my job back and I want my reputation back.”

Rudd did not appear in the last few performances by AC/DC, namely at the Coachella festival and at the Grammy Awards Ceremony.

ow that he has pleaded guilty to charges, Rudd could be sentenced to up to seven years in jail.
