AC/DC drummer in trouble

10-11-2014 07:00

This news is about Phil Rudd. He is a drummer. He plays for the band AC/DC. He has drugs with him. He also wants to kill two people.

Police find out about this. Phil comes to court. There, he does not say anything. The court allows him to leave, but he must return at the end of the month.

The band fired the drummer in 1983. He returned in 1994. AC/DC has a new album. You can buy it this month.

Difficult words: find out (get to know something), court (when you do something bad, you must come to court), fire (to make someone leave his or her job).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
