It's been an intense few months for AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd
. After being arrested and faced with charges
of drug possession and threatening to kill in New Zealand, he's ready to hit the road in the new year and isn't going to let the charges, which he now calls, "ludicrous," stop him.
In a recent interview with New Zealand's One News, Rudd explained his mission to take back what is rightfully his.
"I want my job back, I want my reputation back and I'm gonna get it back," he said. "I'm gonna fucking take it back. I'm going back to work with AC/DC, and I don't care who likes it and who doesn't."
Ummm and what about those pesky charges
hanging over his head? Well, Rudd has his own opinion on it.
"This has just been a big ball of cheese, and all the rats are gathering and having a piece. That's just life. But that's not who I am," he stated. "Everyone listens to the wrong people. They should listen to me. I'm a good guy and a pretty good drummer, by the way. Ask Angus [Young], he'll tell you."
Rudd is due back in court February 10th. You can watch the full interview HERE
