Phil Rudd Hopes For AC/DC Return Following Home Detention: AC/DC News
"I've got a lot to think about now," Rudd tells 3 News. "I've grown up, but not grown old. I hope there's a difference. I still want to play the drums. I've got a lot of game left and I reckon I'm just starting to f***ing get cleared up. So I just want a chance to get back in with the boys and just carry on from there. This last tour bulls**t, you know, sure. Last tour, AC/DC will never retire, Angus will never retire."
After Rudd recorded "Rock Or Bust" with AC/DC in Vancouver last year, the band hired former member Chris Slade to handle drum duties in his place for the group's world tour, which launched on April 10 at Coachella.
"Slade! He's a good drummer, mate," says Rudd. "Chris Slade's a good drummer but I've got no idea what he's doing up there. Trust me, I know what I'm talking about. I got nothing against Chris. It's just he hasn't got a permanent job. I hope! That's all."
In April, Rudd entered a guilty plea to one count of threatening to kill, possession of methamphetamine and possession of cannabis stemming from a series of incidents in 2014. Read more here.
