Is It Even AC/DC Any More Asks Phil Rudd


(Classic Rock) Estranged AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd says he's not given up hope of one day rejoining the band. The sticksman recently completed an eight-month home arrest sentence after being found guilty of drugs possession and making death threats. That led AC/DC to replace him with Chris Slade for their Rock Or Bust world tour.

But with Malcolm Young retired due to dementia, and frontman Brian Johnson's hearing issues resulting in him being replaced by Axl Rose, Rudd is unsure of what the future holds. And while he can't travel to the US because of his conviction, he says he can still play shows in Europe.

He tells The Bay Of Plenty Times: "It is up to Angus Young, what he wants to do. I am limited to where I can go. I've never felt better as a drummer or a person. I am not saying I never hope of ever playing with AC/DC again but, then again, is it even AC/DC any more? No Bon's beautiful voice. No Malcolm. No Brian." Read more here.
