AC/DC’s PHIL RUDD Allegedly Prohibited From U.S. Entry

Phil Rudd, the legendary drummer of AC/DC, is facing a major setback in his music career. According to multiple sources, Rudd is reportedly banned from entering the U.S., which means he cannot join his bandmates for their highly anticipated live comeback at the Power Trip festival in California on Saturday, October 7th.

The reason for the ban is unclear, but it might be related to Rudd‘s past legal troubles. In 2015, Rudd pleaded guilty to charges of threatening to kill a former employee and possessing drugs.

He was sentenced to eight months of home confinement, which prevented him from reuniting with AC/DC at the time. Rudd‘s lawyers argued that the sentence was unfairly damaging to his music career, but the judge was unsympathetic.

Rudd managed to return to AC/DC, when he recorded their comeback album Power Up, which was released in November 2020. However, his absence from the upcoming performance at the Power Trip festival raises questions about his future with the band.

AC/DC has not provided any official explanation for Rudd‘s absence, and has enlisted drummer Matt Laug for their upcoming show. Fans are left wondering if Rudd will ever be able to perform with AC/DC again, or if this is the end of an era for the iconic drummer.
