AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd admits threatening to kill a man
New Zealand: AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has pleaded guilty to threatening to kill a man who used to work for him and possessing methamphetamine and marijuana.
Rudd (60) faces seven years in jail on the threat to kill charge, although his lawyer said the prosecution case boiled down to an angry phone call. Rudd acknowledged he had offered cash, vehicles and a house to an associate after asking him to have the victim "taken out" and that he also directly said to the victim he was going to kill him. Rudd will be sentenced in June.
