AC/DC Drummer's Flirty Deeds

Josie McNaught of has issued the following report:

A big motor launch, plenty of booze, some fags, and a spot of afternoon delight. It's the sort of behaviour you'd expect from an aging rocker — and Phil Rudd, drummer with Australian rock icons AC/DC, is living up to the reputation.

In, of all places, Tauranga.

It's a warm and sunny afternoon, and the young Asian woman who answers the door of the launch's cabin is dressed for the weather, with most of her midriff on display. She's friendly and says to hold on a minute, she'll grab Phil. It's too dark to get a decent look in, but before the door is quickly closed, a whiff of cigarette smoke and alcohol wafts out.

When Rudd emerges from the darkened cabin of the Sea Ritz, he says he's just having "lunch with friends". A rubbish bag filled with beer cans and an empty box of bourbon and coke mixers indicates it's probably a liquid lunch. Rudd politely but firmly refuses to comment on the rumours he's keeping Tauranga's escort agencies very busy, with up to five visitors a day.

The photographer snapping away doesn't faze him as he casually buttons up his shirt. He's almost deathly pale, sporting an expensive looking watch, the thin strands of his long rocker's hair blowing in the sea breeze.

One local escort agency owner said Rudd was one of their best clients, and had been for the past 18 months.
