    AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was arrested for trying to launch a murder for hire plot, but the charges were dropped. Where does that leave the skinsman and what is his status in the legendary band?

    Guitarist Angus Young noted that it was "tough" to get Rudd in the studio for the recording process of their new album Rock or Bust. So it sounds like some shit was up or has been up.

    He said, "It put us in a spot where we couldn't move forward. Does the guy show up? Is he reliable to do his job in good shape? We've always been a solid, reliable unit."

    Young also has said that the band has not been in contact with the kitminder, who missed a video shoot, too. The band said if it tours, it will have a drummer in place. Who that drummer is remains to be seen.

    What is your take on the Phil Rudd drama with AC/DC?
