Classic AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd commented on all the folks out there saying drumming for the band is an easy gig, telling Rhythm Magazine:
“If you think it’s easy you start playing it! It’s good to play stuff that’s hard to play.
“If it sounds like it’s easy to play then you’re not playing the right thing and you should play something else.
“You can’t just fuckin’ play, with that song [‘Let There Be Rock’] you’re always working thanks to those railroad tracks of guitar strings that Malcolm used to use.
“I set up a couple of guitars with strings that size while we were recording the new album, no one could fuckin’ play them! Malcolm played those guitars every single night.
“You can’t make things easy for yourself, you have to keep on working and that keeps you real.
“It’s hard work to play that one, especially live. We would always play that towards the end of the show. So by the time that one came around I’d already have had an hour and a half of slogging my guts out.
“You’d think, ‘What shall we do now, something easy? Nah, let’s do something fuckin’ harder!’ That’s all good character building stuff though.”
