“It’s onward and upward from here.”
Phil Rudd, the drummer of AC/DC, pleaded guilty to charges of threatening to kill today (April 21) in a Tauranga, New Zealand court.
“I’m going back to work with AC/DC and I don’t care who likes it or who doesn’t,” Rudd said. “I want my job back and I want my reputation back.”
Rudd reportedly called both of the people threatened, a contractor and his daughter, and restated the threats.
He may have just dug his hole a bit deeper by starting a fight with a witness in his own case. He’s due back in court on Feb. 10.
He also pleaded not guilty to additional charges of holding drugs.
There was a warrant out for his arrest before he finally showed up in the courtroom.
