AC/DC's Future With Phil Rudd Uncertain

(Classic Rock) AC/DC have stopped short of ruling out a return for drummer Phil Rudd - but say he won't take part in their upcoming shows in his home country New Zealand.

He was replaced by returning sticksman Chris Slade in the aftermath of his arrest in November. He later pleaded guilty to charges of threatening to kill and drugs possession, and faces a jail term of up to seven years when he appears for sentencing next month.

The band's tour manager has addressed rumors that Rudd would be behind the kit when their Rock Or Bust world tour reaches New Zealand in December.

Garry Van Egmond tells the Bay Of Plenty Times: "Chris Slade will be on drums. He replaced Phil when he left the band some years back." But he adds that there's "no confirmation that Phil has left the band permanently" and continues: "All I can say is that Phil will not be playing the New Zealand concerts." Read more here.
