AC/DC Drummer Phill Rudd to Release 'Head Job' Solo Album
According to Australia's long-running rock station Triple M, AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd will release a solo album, "Head Job", on August 29. The CD's first single, "Repo Man", will be premiered on the station this Friday.

"I hope everyone thinks this is a great album from start to finish because that's the idea," Rudd told Triple M. "We didn't put anything on there that we didn't like. There's no filler. There's plenty of Phil, but no filler."

Other songs set to appear on "Head Job" - which is described as "a very personal album about the sh-t that goes on" - include the rocking title track, the upbeat dirgy groove of "Bad Move" and the relationship-driven "Crazy."

Rudd also commented on the new AC/DC album which the band recently finished recording at Bryan Adams' studio in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

"We're happy to have it done and it's all very good, by the way," he said. "There's no comparisons between the two [the new AC/DC album and "Head Job"], but they're both very good."

Rudd joined AC/DC in 1974. He had previously played with Angry Anderson in Buster Brown and left that band to join the Coloured Balls with Lobby Loyde.

When AC/DC bassist Mark Evans left the band in 1977, Rudd became the only Australian-born member of AC/DC.

Rudd exited AC/DC in 1983 and was replaced by Simon Wright, then Chris Slade. When Slade left in 1993, Rudd rejoined the band.
