According to his lawyer, Phil Rudd, the Australian-born drummer from world-famous rock band AC/DC, pleaded guilty in a New Zealand court on Tuesday to charges of threatening to kill and possession of drugs. A second charge of threatening to kill, which carries a maximum sentence of seven years in jail, was withdrawn. The district court in the seaside city of Tauranga, about 125 miles southeast of Auckland, heard the matter arose from Rudd's anger about the launch of his solo album, which had not gone well. Rudd has lived in Tauranga since he was fired from the heavy metal band in 1983.
