    AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd gets charged with attempting to procure a murder


    AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd allegedly tried to have two men killed.

    He appeared in New Zealand's Tauranga District Court this afternoon, charged with attempting to procure a murder.

    Rudd, 60, dressed in jeans and a grey sweater, said nothing during his short stint in the dock of the court, before being released on bail.

    He entered no plea to the charges and will reappear in court in three weeks.Media applied for permission to film and photograph Rudd in the dock. His lawyer Tony Rickardsson argued against that saying the media just wanted to get photos of Rudd "at his worst". But Judge Bidois allowed filming of Rudd.

    Rudd had been in custody since 7am when his house was raided by police.

    AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has been questioned by police.

    In releasing Rudd on bail he ordered that he should have no contact with the man he allegedly tried to hire to carry out the murder.

    According to the charges laid by police, Rudd had tried to get two men killed - their names and that of the intended hitman were all suppressed by the judge.

    Rudd was driven from court by a blonde woman in a silver Mercedes Kompressor convertible.

    He refused to talk to gathered media.

    Rudd's arrest comes after police raided the drummer's home on the Tauranga waterfront at Matua this morning.

    He is also charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis and threatening to kill.

    Rudd is the only Australian-born member of the ACDC band. In 2003, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the other members of AC/DC.

    Rudd moved to New Zealand in 1983 after he was kicked out of the band.

    He re-joined the band in 1994 and has since been in and out of New Zealand while touring and recording.

    AC/DC has a new album, Rock or Bust, due out on December 2.

    The has sold more than 200 million albums, feature at or near the top of highest grossing tour lists whenever they play live and were the standard bearers for Australian music years before the likes of INXS, Kylie Minogue or 5 Seconds of Summer.

    The sound of pub rock, the defining mainstream sound of Australian music in the 1970s and '80s, could be said to have emerged from the stages, and the studios AC/DC inhabited.


    Here is an example of Rudds work during better times :cry:

    Lyrics to that song were bubbling in my head when I started reading the story. Awful, awful year for them. Wonder if they decide that losing two founding members is enough and just call it quits, one would think with all the touring for like 40 years they'd be massively wealthy.

    I'm in the same boat. Just so-so. Earlier stuff is better than anything from Back in Black on.
