AC/DC Drummer Sells Infamous New Zealand Mansion
March 7, 2019 5:54AM CST
- A lucky buyer in New Zealand just purchased an expensive piece of rock memorabilia, picking up Phil Rudd’s Bay of Plenty mansion for a cool $4 million ($2.71M USD).
- The AC/DC drummer had owned the 6,300 square-foot, six-bedroom home, made up from two apartments on a gated property for nine years, before deciding to downsize. Rudd will remain in the area, where he has lived since the early-1980s.
- Adding to the mansion’s charm is its history. Rudd served out his eight-month home detention sentence there for his death threats and drug possession charges back in 2015.
- Rudd was kicked out of the band at that time, but reportedly he was seen in Vancouver recently, allegedly recording with the Australian rockers.
- What’s the most you paid for a piece of rock memorabilia? Was it worth it? Where do you have it?
