Phil Rudd Hoping For Return To AC/DC


(Classic Rock) Former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd believes the band still have a future and he wants to be part of it. He was dismissed last year after being charged with threatening to kill and drugs possession, and wound up serving eight months of home detention in New Zealand. The Aussie giants replaced him with returning member Chris Slade.

Since then frontman Brian Johnson and bassist Cliff Williams have left the band, with mainman Malcolm Young having bowed out previously. But Rudd - who recently stated his "hellraising days are over" - remains optimistic that guitarist Angus Young will return, and he wants to take part.

Rudd says via the Belfast Telegraph: "I'd dearly love to play on anything that Angus does. Anything that might be - it's never over. I have great stories with all the guys from AC/DC.

We've gone through a lot together. Done a lot together, done a lot of damage together. I have great memories with AC/DC. Even though some of us might not be very well, we're not dead yet."

He reports that his former colleagues were "supportive and encouraging" as he struggled with his legal and addiction issues, and says that he feels like a new man after suffering a heart attack last year. here.
