Veteran drummer Phil Rudd says he is open to join hard rock band AC/DC if singer Axl Rose leaves the group as frontman.
The former ‘Highway to Hell’ drummer was replaced by Chris Slade after he was convicted last year for drug possession and making threats to kill a former employee, reported Femalefirst.
Rose took the place of longtime AC/DC vocalist Brian Johnson, who was forced to abruptly quit touring with the group or risk “total hearing loss.”
“If Angus (Young) wanted me to play then that’s up to him, but I don’t really want to play with Axl Rose. I don’t really rate him,” Rudd said.
Meanwhile, the musician revealed he suffered a “big” heart attack recently but is doing fine now.
“I had a heart attack, but I’m good now. I was just at home and I started to feel just funny. I had a strange pain in my chest.
“My housekeeper took me to the hospital where they hooked me up and did all these tests. Turned out I had a big heart attack. My artery was all blocked up, and they said I had to stay in and have an operation,” he said.
