Longtime AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd, who last year lost his appeal against a string of convictions in New Zealand, has told Bay Of Plenty Times in a new interview that he doesn’t rule out one day returning to the band once his legal problems end.
“It is up to Angus [Young, AC/DC guitarists], what he wants to do. I am limited to where I can go.”
Asked about his more subdued attitude about rejoining AC/DC compared with straight after his sentence when he appeared on New Zealand TV saying he wanted to “get my job back,” Rudd said: “I was over-fuelled. All over the place. I am not like that anymore. I’ve never felt better as a drummer or a person. I am not saying I never hope of ever playing with AC/DC again but, then again, is it even AC/DC anymore? No Bon‘s [Scott] beautiful voice. No Malcolm [Young, guitar]. No Brian [Johnson, vocals].”
Rudd was sentenced to eight months of home detention by a New Zealand court last July after pleading guilty to charges of threatening to kill and drug possession.
