Former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd, in a somewhat surprising move, has changed his plea of not guilty on one account of a threat to kill to guilty. He also pleaded guilty to one count each of possession for marijuana and methamphetamine.
Rudd had offered an associate $153,000 and either "a motourbike, one of his cars, or a house" in order to see one of the many employees Rudd fired to be "taken out". Rudd was angry over his solo CD, which did not impress in Australia's charts and essentially flopped.Rudd now faces up to 7 years in prison for the threat to kill charge and up to an additional 9 months for the possession charges. He is currently out on bail while awaiting sentencing.
