    (CNN) -- Phil Rudd, the drummer for legendary hard rock band AC/DC, has been charged with attempting to have two men killed.

    The 60-year-old appeared in a New Zealand court Thursday afternoon facing a count of attempting to procure the murder of two men, said Bay of Plenty district's police spokesperson, Kim Perks.

    He was also charged with threatening to kill, possession of methamphetamine and possession of cannabis, Perks said.

    The names of the men he allegedly wanted killed and the name of the alleged potential hitman are suppressed, CNN affiliate TVNZ reported.

    Rudd entered no plea to the charges at the Tauranga District Court, and was bailed until November 27, local media reported.

    Police searched Rudd's waterfront home in Tauranga on Thursday morning, TVNZ reported.

    The Australian-born drummer moved to New Zealand in 1983, after being sacked by the group. He rejoined the group years later.

    AC/DC are one of the world's biggest-selling musical acts, and in 2003 were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    Their latest album, Rock or Bust, is scheduled for release later this month.

    Meth mouth.



    From AC/DC's facebook page:

    "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."

    Damn he looks rough. Surprisingly Brian and Angus have aged pretty well considerng they smoke like a chimney, atleast Angus still does.

    Ive always admired Angus. Other than the fact he's probably one of rock music's most underrated lead players, the dude stayed away from booze and drugs. In all the biographies ive read on the band, they all say the same thing. Instead of boozing it up with his brother and the gang, he would hang out on the tour bus watching old cartoons drinking tea and writing songs.
