The other members of AC/DC say they have neither made or gotten contact with their drummer since authorities implicated Phil Rudd in drug murder-for-hire charges.   Rudd, who recently released a solo album, was portrayed as difficult to get to the studio while AC/DC was working on their new album, ironically titled Rock Or Bust.  Speaking during a promotional appearance in New York for the pending album, Angus Young said, ' was hard to even get him to do the recording. And then he was supposed to show up to do promos with us, to do video shoots and a few other things, and he never showed up for that either.'  While the charge Rudd had sought to set up a contract killing has been dropped, he still could get up to a 7 year sentence if convicted on the pending charges and threatening to kill someone.  As for where he stands with the group, Young says, ' this stage, it's a pretty tough call for us.'
