AC/DC's Phil Rudd Done Raising Hell, Releasing Album

Phil Rudd

(Classic Rock) Former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd says the lifestyle that led to his dismissal from the band is in the past. And he's aiming to put his career back on track with the re-release of solo album Head Job next month.

Rudd, who's appeared on all but three of AC/DC's studio albums, was charged with attempting to procure a murder in 2014, after becoming frustrated with the handling of Head Job's initial launch.

Although that charge was dropped, he was later found guilty of threatening to kill and drugs possession, and sentenced to eight months of home detention in New Zealand. That led AC/DC to replace him with Chris Slade for their Rock Or Bust world tour.

Head Job will be relaunched on September 30 via Wave 365 media, and Rudd will undertake a media tour to promote it. He says: "My hellraising days are over. I see a psychiatrist once a week and I'm closer than ever to my children." Read more here.
