|Angry Anderson AM|
An Australian singer, born in Melbourne, Victoria.
Angry Anderson is an Australian rock singer, television presenter, reporter and actor.
He is best known as the vocalist with the hard rock band Rose Tattoo since 1976 but he is also recognised for his acting roles and his charity work. On Australia Day, 1993, he was awarded an Order of Australia for his role as a youth advocate.
Born Gary Anderson on 5 August 1947 in Melbourne, he first came to notice as the singer with Buster Brown, a band he fronted between 1973 and 1975. Along with himself, the original line-up also featured drummer Phil Rudd, who would leave the group in 1974 to join AC/DC and also with Paul Grant as guitarist who still plays locally in Melbourne. Buster Brown released an album, Something to Say, in 1975 before disbanding the same year.
Rose Tattoo had been formed by Peter Wells of the heavy metal band Buffalo. Anderson replaced the group's original singer Tony Lake and when drummer Michael Vandersluys departed soon afterwards, he was replaced by Dallas Royal, who had been Rudd's replacement in Buster Brown.
He also gives much of his time for certain causes raising money for charity etc.
