To the inexperienced, Phil Rudd’s drumming may seem rudimentary; but his unselfish style and humongous groove have earned him the adoration of generations of drummers. Rammstein’s Christoph Schneider said in the October 2010 Modern Drummer, “AC/DC were my absolute heroes because they are simple and easy to copy—though soon you find they are not so easy to copy.” The Australian drummer played in several Melbourne bands, such as Buster Brown and the Coloured Balls, before joining up with rock giants AC/DC in 1975. Then over the next four years Rudd powered the band to super stardom with his dogged consistency and unshakable back beat on classics like “It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Want To Rock ’N’ Roll)” “T.N.T” and “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.” Appearing on all but three of AC/DC’s 18 studio albums, the band went on to sell more than 200 million copies worldwide.
During 2014, Phil recorded and released his first debut album Head Job with Kiwi musicians Allan Badger and Geoffrey Martin. “I couldn’t be bloody happier with Head Job, to tell you the truth” Phil told Libel Music. “I’m so proud of the album, everything I had to do with it. The guys played really well on it, it’s just too good. Really great, mate… I’m pretty happy with the drum sound“. Head Job was re-released on 30th September 2016.
