AC/DC Not in Touch With Phil Rudd Since Charges

Artist: 
 
Angus Young of AC/DC says his bandmates have not been in touch with Phil Rudd since he was charged with threatening to kill and possessing methamphetamine and marijuana last week.
Young, 59, said in an interview Thursday (Nov. 13) that Rudd's behavior had been somewhat erratic during the recording of their new album.
 
"Well, we had a few problems. The situation he's in -- that took everyone by surprise. We had a few issues before with him, even when we were recording it was hard even to get to him to do the recording," Young said, sitting in a room with bassist Cliff Williams.
"And then he was supposed to show up to do promos with us, to do video shoots and a few shoots and a few other things, and he never showed up for that either. So, at this stage, it's a pretty tough call for us."
 
Rudd, who has been with the band on and off for nearly three decades, was released last week. He is expected to appear in court in New Zealand on Nov. 27.
"We haven't had contact," Young said in New York City. "But he has his people that represent him. He's got himself in a pickle."
