AC/DC have been confirmed to perform at the Grammy Awards in February but the big question is ‘who will be their drummer’?
Troubled member Phil Rudd is still set to face court in New Zealand on February 10 and with the Grammy Awards scheduled for the day before (February 9 NZ time), Rudd will not yet be in a position to leave the country.
Phil Rudd was the drummer for AC/DC from the band’s second album ‘TNT’ in 1975, missing the albums from ‘Flick of the Switch’ (1983) to ‘The Razors Edge; (1990) before returning for ‘Ballbreaker’ (1995) and ever album since including the current record ‘Rock Or Bust’.
Rudd’s current legal troubles surfaced after the recording of the new album but before videos for the record were band. He is absent from the videos for the first two singles ‘Play Ball’ and ‘Rock Or Bust’.
While the Grammy Awards have confirmed AC/DC will perform at the event next month it has not confirmed the line-up for the broadcast.
Other artists confirmed to perform at the Grammy Awards are Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Madonna and Eric Church.
The Grammy Awards winners will be announced from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 8 (LA time).
