AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd pleaded guilty in a New Zealand court, to a charge of threatening to kill a man who used to work for him. CNN reported that Rudd also pleaded guilty to possessing methamphetamine and marijuana.

Well now the judge in the case has sentenced Rudd to eight months in house detention for drug possession and making threats to kill.

Australian-born Rudd, who is 61, had originally denied the charges but changed his plea in April.

His sentence will be served at his beachfront home in Tauranga, with Judge Thomas Ingram warning he would be face jail if he breached the conditions

To add insult to injury the judge berated Rudd's drumming abilities.

When Rudds attorneys asked the judge for leniency, they pointed out that Rudd was a top drummer and needed to be free to rejoin AC/DC on tour.

"Some of the affidavit material put before me suggests that you are integral to the band's sound" said Judge Ingram.

"That point doesn't persuade me completely. Queen have replaced Freddie Mercury and it's clear that the AC/DC band is currently touring without you."

Rudd is not currently a member of AC/DC, and has not been invited to join them on their tour of New Zealand and Australia later this year.
