While AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd won’t learn his fate until June on a number of charges, including threatening to kill, the satirical Evening Harold is reporting that he has been sentenced to three years in Whitesnake.
“Rudd pleaded guilty to charges of threatening to kill a former employee, but denied possessing a copy of the single ‘Is this Love,'” saying, ‘Clearly, that must have been planted by someone. And if I find out who it was, I’ll have them ki…ssed?'” The “report” goes onto say that “Amnesty International has condemned the punishment, and called for it to be commuted to a fortnight in Def Leppard.”
Meanwhile, Rudd’s “lawyer,” Bruce Grobellaar, says, “Until now, Rudd hasn’t had a criminal record. Although he admits the stuff they released in the ’90s came close.”
And lastly, Rudd says, “It’s the thought of solitary confinement that scares me the most. We never had that in AC/DC. Imagine being on my own for what…seven or eight minutes? Just banging away, with not so much as a bass line. And all the while you’re thrashing away at the solo, there’s the threat that when it ends, David Coverdale will come back out.”
