Former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd previews Head Job video

Former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd is sharing a preview of a new video for the title track to his recently re-released solo album, “Head Job.”

Rudd originally issued the album in 2014, just months before a series of legal troubles led to an 8-month home detention - on charges of threatening to kill a contractor, possession of methamphetamine and possession of cannabis - that sidelined him from joining AC/DC for a world tour in support of the “Rock Or Bust” album.

The Australian group brought in former member Chris Slade to handle drums for the trek, which eventually saw Axl Rose step in to handle vocals in place of Brian Johnson after the longtime AC/DC singer risked permanent hearing loss.

Rudd was a member of AC/DC from 1975–83 and again from 1994 to 2014.

“Head Job” was first previewed with the lead single, “Repo Man”; the album’s reissue and plans to tour the UK and Europe in 2017 are part of Rudd’s plan to launch a comeback following his recovery from a heart attack in New Zealand this past summer.

"I made mistakes, but I am really good now,” says Rudd. “Life is good. I'm positive and healthy. I really appreciate the support of the fans around the world, which kept me going through, you know, some of the dark times, and I cannot wait to play the music for them, it is going to rock."
