    AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has been charged in New Zealand with attempting to procure a murder. Details about the intended victim were unknown at press time, but Rudd was released on bail.

    Rudd, 60, is also charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis and threatening to kill.

    What a shame. Sounds like Rudd has a lot of 'splaining to do.

    AC/DC have dealt with some drama as of late, as longtime member and guitarist Malcolm Young is battling dementia.
