AC/DC isn't speaking to suspended drummer Phil Rudd

AC/DC’s Phil Rudd recently pleaded guilty to charges of charges of threatening to kill someone—and his bandmates have been steering clear of him. “I’ve had no contact from anybody,” the drummer said in an interview on A Current Affair.

In the same interview, Rudd described the murder threat as a “mistake.” “People make mistakes,” he said. Rudd should find out what his sentence will be come June, and he’s open to the idea of returning to the band one day—though it’s not completely up to him. “That’s Angus’ call,” he said, referring to AC/DC guitarist Angus Young. 

If it is up to Young, his prospects aren’t looking so great: “Phil created his own situation,” Young said in a statement to A Current Affair. “It’s a hard thing to say about the guy. He’s a great drummer, and he’s done a lot of stuff for us. But he seems to have let himself go. He’s not the Phil we’ve known from the past.”
