Courts Will Decide Rudd's Future In AC/DC

(Classic Rock) AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson believes drummer Phil Rudd's future with the band will be decided in court. And he's emphasised that the band will hit the road next year with or without him. Rudd, 60, is under house arrest at his New Zealand home after being accused of threatening to kill and possession of drugs. The charge of attempting to procure the murder of two men was dropped for lack of evidence - but he could still face up to seven years in jail. The band have reported that he'd been behaving erratically in the run-up to his legal woes. Guitarist Angus Young has said it was difficult to keep him at work while they recorded upcoming album Rock Or Bust, and that he failed to appear for a London video shoot without warning. Now Johnson tells Howard Stern on SiriusXM: "I don't think we have to do anything - fire him or anything like that. I think the situation is going to take care of itself. "He's got himself into a pickle and there's nothing we can do about it. We're talking about criminal courts, judges and juries. But we are going to go on tour, and nothing's going to stop us."

Bret Michaels Details Recent Emergency Room Visits

(TeamRock Radio) Poison singer Bret Michaels has reassured fans that he doesn't have a death wish after attempting to keep working through his latest spate of health issues. He only made small adjustments to his current solo tour after experiencing kidney problems that required surgery. Guitarist Pete Evick hailed his boss's commitment to staying on the road - but admitted: "as a friend it's hard to encourage or agree." Now lifelong diabetic Michaels says: "I wanted to take a moment to sincerely thank everyone for their concern, prayers and well wishes. I also want to thank the several emergency rooms and their staff for the immediate attention. This has been going on for several weeks and was extremely painful. "I thought I was well enough after the first operation - however I got a blood clot, as well as an infection, which complicated the matter. I am fortunate that I work hard to keep my diabetes under control; however there's no doubt after 45 years my healing process is a little slower than a non diabetic."

AC/DC's Malcolm Young Fought To Keep Making Music

(TeamRock Radio) Malcolm Young fought to keep making music as long as he could, says brother and bandmate Angus. The AC/DC mainman was finally forced to retire earlier this year as a result of dementia, which he'd begun struggling with before the band started 2008 album Black Ice. "He was still writing until he couldn't do it any more. You were hoping that he'd get better," Angus Young says of his brother in a new interview with Pulse Of Radio. "The physical side, he got great treatment for that, so he's good with all of that. But the mental side has just deteriorated. He himself said, you know, 'I won't be able to do it any more.'"

Malcolm Young Hasn't Heard AC/DC's New Album

(TeamRock Radio) Retired AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young hasn't heard the band's upcoming album Rock Or Bust, says brother Angus. And the health issues that caused his retirement began appearing before they'd made 2008 record Black Ice, reveals the only remaining original member. Malcolm's family confirmed in September that his dementia had advanced to a stage that meant his career was over. Rock Or Bust was recorded with nephew Stevie Young in his place. Angus tells Rolling Stone: "It's something that had been happening for a long time. The symptoms had surfaced even before the last project. He was still capable of knowing what he wanted to do. "I said to him, 'Do you want to go through with what we're doing?' And he said, 'Sh*t, yeah.' He liked to finish what he started."
