The drummer for rock band AC/DC has been charged in New Zealand with attempting to procure murder.
Phil Rudd made a brief appearance at Tauranga District Court before being released on bail.
The 60-year-old Australian has also been charged with threatening to kill and possession of methamphetamine and marijuana.
One of his bail conditions is that he must not have any contact with anyone involved in the alleged plot.
Neither Rudd’s lawyer nor a publicist for the band could be immediately reached for comment.
Court staff said Rudd was due to make a second appearance on November 27, although that date could change.
Rudd and other members of AC/DC were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.
