With the departure of acclaimed Australian guitarist Bob Spencer this year, Rose Tattoo have announced via a statement from frontman Angry Anderson that Ronnie Simmons will be Bob’s replacement.

“Brothers and sisters, over recent weeks we have been deliberating as to whom might come into Rose Tatt’s line up to fill the position left by Bob’s departure…

Well, the wait is over as we have decided on our replacement. I am very pleased to announce our own Ronnie Simmons as our new guitarist, our own because, for those that don’t already know, Ronnie was born and raised here in Australia being fed a daily diet of all things Aussie Rock by seriously responsible parents, Rose Tattoo played a prominent role in his musical education!

He told me many years ago that some of the first songs he learnt to play were Rose Tattoo toons and since then he has held a dream of one day joining our band for some musical adventure. So here we are welcoming a new player into our brotherhood who was raised on our music, no finer pedigree needed!

Ronnie and I first met quite some years ago, he was still a pup, well compared to the rest of us he still is, so he brings his youthful exuberance as well as his wellknown wizardry which has positioned him in the Los Angeles Rock scene.

He regularly plays in the Richie Ramone lineup and has recently played with the Faster Pussycat crew … to name just two.

In recent years, since relocating to LA, he has earnt himself a reputation as a consummate player, his guitar skills are now highly regarded, his stage presence is charismatic – but come see for yourself on that one!..

Girls. Ronnie will debut with the Tatt’s in February 2023.

See ya there or be square!” Ango”
