    Here is the story according to him.

    Phil Rudd looking calm and calculated. But it wasn't always the case as Colin Hart recalled. "When we were in Frankfurt after a show, I was driving Cozy Powell back to the hotel through a very seedy part of town when we spied Phil Rudd staggering along the street absolutely arseholed and having an altercation with some of the local populace. We stopped and told him to get out of the area and stop being a dickhead, but he just wanted to stay there, stand his ground and not go back to his hotel. How wonderfully Australian! We quickly bundled him into the car, as this was just not the part of town to pick a fight - especially as he was not the biggest guy in the world. He very reluctantly allowed us to take him back, but the next night and the others after that, he would repeat the exercise. Get shitfaced, find the local badlands and try to rearrange the locals. It's called a death wish, which happily was not granted then or since." (Colin Hart, Rainbow Tour Manager from his autobiography A Hart Life).

    This passage is from the book Visions of AC/DC, photos by Alan Perry (2017).

    Originally in: A Hart Life: The Life Story of Deep Purple and Rainbow's Tour Manager, by Colin Hart (2012).

    Nothing new here. Rudd's an asshole, but he's our asshole. RIG

    I don't see how he's an asshole for this. Just different. And interesting. Rock needs more of this.

    Generally speaking with tongue in cheek. I love The Rudd.

    No? Had Axl done this I’m fairly sure people here would gladly label him as such. Don’t see any exception for ‘ol Phil.

    I wonder if Phil had a tough upbringing? Seems obvious to me, would be interested to rid an autobiography from him but I don't exactly trust his dedication to honesty...

    And again, our "friend" Brett took info from this thread to "write" one of his journalistic masterpieces.

    At least if Brett also adopted RIG, it would have been more acceptable.

    A biography of the Rudd should be next in line for Jeff Apter. it would be a lot more interesting than the ones about Ang and Mal anyway.

    I remember Rudd did sign up for a book deal a few years ago - during his legal issues.
