AC/DC and Phil Rudd have created a style of rock which suit their music so well, and while Phil's playing appear to be simple to do, it is not. He does uplift the songs with the approach "less is more", a really good player.

Agreed, AC/DC is AC/DC! and 37 years later, they're still here, they must be doing something right...

It could be right, however, it would be interesting to see what they would come up with? then we could be the judge of that :)

No, Phil Rudd is an iconic figure in the world of rock music, based on his approach of drumming, and I have no doubt that the man is capable to play something that is "more in your face" type of groove, but somehow it would not suit AC/DC's music...
Keep On Drumming
