AC/DC Star's Alleged 'Hitman' Speaks Out

(Classic Rock) An associate of AC/DC's Phil Rudd has spoken to the media and denies claims that he was contracted by the drummer to murder a former employee and his daughter as a "hitman." Rudd was arrested by New Zealand police on November 6 and charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis and threatening to kill, as well as attempting to procure a murder after he allegedly tried to have two men killed; authorities dropped the procure charge the next day due to lack of evidence. The drummer has plead not guilty to the three remaining charges and is expected to face a judge-alone trial, without a jury, next year. Rudd made more headlines following a court appearance last week after a chance encounter with one of the parties involved in the case was determined to be a breach of his bail conditions. The alleged hitman tells the New Zealand Herald that Rudd offered him $250,000 and "the pick" of any of the cars in his $9 million collection to be his bodyguard - not a payment for what police claim Rudd "wanted done" to the former employee.

Metallica Frontman Faces His Fears

(Classic Rock) Metallica frontman James Hetfield has told how his lifelong fear of responsibility has caused problems with his addiction recovery. And he says turning 50 last year has given him new concerns about being thought of as a role model. In August he discussed his method for relying on fans when he suffered a lack of confidence on stage. Now Hetfield says in a video for addiction service Road Recovery: "I've been afraid of responsibility my whole life - not wanting to take responsibility for myself." He recalls an elementary school summer session where he was told to work with a group of fellow pupils on a film project. "I was, 'Hey, how about we do this?' and all these ideas. Then they said, 'Okay now, choose your leaders who's responsible for the stuff.' "I shrunk, man. I got scared. The group was like, 'You're the leader because you had all the ideas.' I was like, 'No, no, no' - and I bailed. I was afraid of responsibility. Afraid of failure, maybe; afraid that I didn't know what I was really doing." He admits: "That's kind of what it's like for me in recovery at times. Afraid to take on responsibility of sponsees, allowing myself to stand up and shine in that way."
