AC/DC are rumored for a new album and tour with Brian Johnson, Phil Rudd, and Cliff Williams back in the band, and the AC/DC fan forum has posted a bizarre alleged story from ex-Rainbow manager Alan Perry in the book A Hart Life: The Life Story of Deep Purple and Rainbow’s Tour Manager has been revealed. It also appeared in Visions of AC/DC.
“When we were in Frankfurt after a show, I was driving Cozy Powell back to the hotel through a very seedy part of town when we spied Phil Rudd staggering along the street absolutely arseholed and having an altercation with some of the local populace. We stopped and told him to get out of the area and stop being a dickhead, but he just wanted to stay there, stand his ground and not go back to his hotel.
How wonderfully Australian! We quickly bundled him into the car, as this was just not the part of town to pick a fight – especially as he was not the biggest guy in the world. He very reluctantly allowed us to take him back, but the next night and the others after that, he would repeat the exercise.
Get shitfaced, find the local badlands and try to rearrange the locals. It’s called a death wish, which happily was not granted then or since.”
Legendary AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd is rumored to secretly be back in the band after being photographed in the studio, along with fellow returning members Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams, last year in Vancouver. A new AC/DC album and AC/DC tour are rumored as well. It appears to that Rudd soon wants a $199,990 paycheck as well, as he is selling his Bentley Mulsanne 2011 online with that as the asking price.
