AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd loses appeal against conviction for drug possession and threats to kill

October 6, 2015

Ex AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has lost an appeal against his conviction for drug possession and making threats to kill a former employee.


In July, Rudd was sentenced to eight months of home detention for possession of methamphetamine and marijuana and making murder threats.

The court had heard that Rudd fired a number of employees due to the poor sales of his solo album ‘Head Job’ and allegedly told an associate that he wanted one of his former employees to be “taken out”. Rudd allegedly offered the associate NZ$200,000.

According to 3 News, Rudd’s latest appeal against the conviction has been rejected and the musician has been meeting with a specialist psychiatrist.

He has also allegedly reconciled with the individual he threatened.
