|Phil and his genuine rockstar attitude|
As you know charges against Phil Rudd have been dropped according to a press release from his lawyer. You can read the full details on ac-dc.net:
However, probably this will not change the decision of leaving the drummer out of the band for the AC/DC 2015 World Tour which was hinted by the official note made by the band yesterday on their official website:
We've only become aware of Phil's arrest as the news was breaking. We have no further comment. Phil’s absence will not affect the release of our new album Rock or Bust and upcoming tour next year.
We've always loved Phil but the truth of the matter is that such unstable and umpredictable behavior will not be compatible with the professionalism required for a huge world tour like the coming one. And Malcolm Young, who appeared to be the only one who could make "Hard Core Genuine Rocker Phil Rudd" behave, is no longer there, unfortunately. Phil will be a liability and this is the last thing AC/DC need at the present time.
