AC/DC to Headline Coachella, but Will Phil Rudd Be on the Drums?

1 minute read

Headlining at this year’s Coachella music festival will be AC/DC but it is unclear whether drummer Phil Rudd will be joining his band-mates on stage.

In November, Rudd was arrested in New Zealand for attempting to procure a murder, threatening to kill and possession of methamphetamine and marijuana, Yahoo Music reports.

The murder plot charge was later dropped but the rocker still faces charges of drug possession and threatening to kill.

Though he showed up to record AC/DC’s latest album, Rock or Bust, he did not take part in a video and band photo shoot and was in danger of being replaced.

“The guy’s got to be in condition to do this job, you know,” guitarist Angus Young said. “We don’t want to be in that position of canceling thing[s].”
