AC/DC's Phil Rudd Trial Date Set

(hennemusic) Former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd's trial on multiple charges in New Zealand will begin April 21st. Rudd appeared on AC/DC's "Rock Or Bust" but missed an October video shoot in London in advance of his November 6 arrest on multiple charges by New Zealand police - including possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis and threatening to kill. Last week, the case in Tauranga district court was delayed to April after his lawyer backed out and a new one was confirmed; Rudd's issues will be addressed in a "judge-alone" trail where no jury is present. While Rudd recently insisted he would continue to work with AC/DC, the band revealed the return of Chris Slade behind the kit over the weekend as they opened the 57th annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.

AC/DC Reunite With Chris Slade

(Classic Rock) Former AC/DC drummer Chris Slade reunited with the band to fill in for Phil Rudd during the band's performance at the Grammy Award ceremony in Los Angeles, and has been pictured signing AC/DC memorabilia at a pre-event charity bash. Also pictured at the event were the band's Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams, further fuelling speculation that Slade was to fill the drum stool vacancy created by Rudd's ongoing legal battles. Rumors began to circulate earlier this week that the Welsh drummer had been asked to return, and he's now released a statement. "This is an amazing opportunity for me," says Slade. "After all, most people don't ever get to play with their favorite band once, let alone TWICE! "I would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming support I have been shown personally, on the Facebook page and other social media. Not one comment has gone unread and it has been very humbling. Thanks so much."

Jimmy Page Preparing For New Music and Live Return

(Gibson) Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page says he's gearing up to release new music and play live. In my dreams it would be with Led Zeppelin, but he's talking about his upcoming solo album. Talking to the press at the West London launch of the 40th anniversary deluxe reissue for "Physical Graffiti," Page said he was getting ready to hit the stage again. "How it starts off is, you have to play guitar and get match-fit first," Page told Rolling Stone. "So currently I'm in the process of doing that - but I'm also in the process of doing this (Zeppelin reissue series), too. It'll be closer to the end of the year rather than next month. I'm definitely warming up on the touchlines! "What I'm doing is something that's going to be quite different," he added. "It wouldn't be anything that hopefully you'd imagine I would do." On the subject of the Zeppelin reissues, Page said "the response has been phenomenal." "I knew all of the material was really great, but it was really important to set the scene right from the beginning and explain the fact that they were companion discs," he said. "It's been a real fun project to do because I know what's coming - and there's some great surprises."
