Axl Winning People Over

February 2, 2017

Phil Rudd, formerly the drummer for AC/DC before getting into some major legal troubles close to two years ago, has had a change of heart about Axl Rose fronting the band. Where before he wasn't on board at all, Rudd seems to have softened his stance telling Music Radar in a recent interview that he's watched some of the videos of Axll playing with his former band mates, saying, "I was surprised; it wasn't too bad. I was quite surprised, I thought he did quite well and that's not an easy gig, mate, it's not an easy gig at all. AC/DC is a tough gig for everyone in the band." He added that apart from watching the footage, "I don't know what's going to happen or what's going on with the band." Although he said that he had spoken to "a couple of the guys" in the band, he insisted, "I can't say what's on the horizon for AC/DC, I can't really say."
