AC/DC Drummer Rudd In Bizarre Murder Procurement Charge

Thursday, November 6, 2014
UPDATE: AC/DC Comment: "We've only become aware of Phil's arrest as the news was breaking. We have no further comment. Phil's absence will not affect the release of our new album Rock or Bust and upcoming tour next year."

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has been charged with attempting to procure a murder in New Zealand.
According to Rudd was charged after police raided his home on the Tauranga waterfront at Matua this morning.
He has also been charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis and threatening to kill.
Police said a 60-year-old man was expected to appear in court today.
Rudd is the only Australian-born member of the band. In 2003, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with his co-musicians.
Last month, AC/DC fuelled rumours of a falling out with Rudd after sharing a promotional photograph of their new line-up — minus the drummer.
The snap features singer Brian Johnson, bassist Cliff Williams, guitarist Angus Young, and Stevie Young, who has stepped in to replace his uncle Malcolm Young, who is battling dementia.
