AC/DC Drummer Phil Rudd Arrested for Murder-for-Hire Plot

Phil Rudd, the drummer for the legendary band AC/DC, was arrested in New Zealand for allegedly attempting to arrange a murder, threatening to kill, and possession of methamphetamine and cannabis.

The 60-year-old rocker’s home was raided on Thursday morning (November 6) and he was arrested after trying to hire someone to kill two men, according to Variety.

Phil appeared in Tauranga District Court after his arrest and he will reappear in court in three weeks.

After joining AC/DC in 1975, he was kicked out of the band in 1983. He later rejoined the group in 1994 and has been a member ever since. The band just so happens to be releasing a new album called Rock or Bust next month.

    This has NOT been a great year for AC/DC. Malcolm Young is ill (don’t know with what) and not expected to return to the band.

    I thought that Malcolm had to retire because he is suffering from dementia.
