Phil Rudd: I Need Five Minutes With Angus To Return To AC/DC


Angus Young

Phil Rudd thinks it will take ''five minutes'' to persuade Angus Young to allow him back in AC/DC.

The former 'Highway to Hell' drummer pleaded not guilty to breaching his home detention sentence after being arrested for drinking alcohol last month and eight days after he was given an eight-month home detention sentence for drug possession and making threats to kill.

Now, he thinks his bandmate and AC/DC guitarist will let him back in the band because ''he knows'' the band would be ''better'' if he was there and is determined he will return.

Phil Rudd: 'I Can Convince Ac/dc Leader Angus Young To Take Me Back'


Angus Young

Rudd was dumped from the band last year (14) after allegations he tried to organise a hit on a former associate surfaced. He was arrested in Tauranga, New Zealand in November (14) and has since pleaded guilty to charges of threatening to kill and possession of drugs, and is currently serving a home arrest stint in New Zealand.

Explaining his actions in an exclusive 3D news spot in New Zealand on Sunday (09Aug15), the fallen rocker recalled losing his cool when an album launch party failed to live up to expectations and lashing out at an assistant who helped organise it.

He reiterated his plans to rejoin the band during a Rolling Stone magazine interview on Monday (10Aug15), stating, "All I'm looking for is an opportunity to step back up. Once I get back my freedom to travel, I'll hopefully be heading straight back to whatever they're doing. I feel great. Better than I've ever felt before. I'm very keen to get back in the saddle."

In his first sit down TV interview since he was convicted of drug possession and threatening to kill and handed a home detention stint, Rudd appeared on New Zealand's 3D news show on Sunday (09Aug15) and expressed his desire to return to AC DC once his eight-month sentence ends.

He said, "(I want to) get my job back, get back on the road and make a lot of money."

The troubled musician was arrested for drinking alcohol last month but has insisted he did not break the terms of his sentence, eight days after he was given an eight-month home detention sentence for drug possession and making threats to kill.

The 61-year-old rocker was forced to leave their group AC/DC earlier this year after being gripped by the condition - which causes memory loss and confusion - but his younger sibling and bandmate was ''surprised'' at how much he wanted to plan for the 'Back in Black' star before he was unable to continue.

Angus, 59, said: ''His symptoms started around the 'Black Ice Tour' [during 2008-2010] but he said he wanted to continue. I kept asking him if he wanted to go on and he did.
