Phil Rudd, the 62-year-old former time keeper for the epic rock group AC/DC, is finally re-releasing his solo-album entitled Head Job. Rudd, as fans may recall, admitted to offering an acquaintance $133,000 and either a car, motorcycle or house if the person put a hit on his former personal assistant. For his “dirty deed” Rudd was sentenced to 8 months of home confinement. Rudd was lucky enough to avoid a 7 year prison sentence however, he was not lucky enough to avoid being let go from AC/DC because of the incident. Ironically, sources have said that the cause of the vendetta was apparently the disappointing reaction to Head Job as ridiculous as that sounds.
In reflecting on this situation, Rudd had this to say:
“(My) hell raising days are over … I see a psychiatrist once a week and I’m closer than ever to my children. I still have all my flash cars but now I want to grow chillies.”
We hope the success of this record at least salvages something for Rudd after all he lost.
