Gary, singer for Rose Tattoo, will stand for the National Party for the seat of Throsby on the New South Wales south coast.

The electoral division of Throsby was established in 1984 and has only ever been held by Labor. Sitting member Stephen Jones scored 62.11% in the tow-party preferred count in the last election despite at 4.65% swing against him.

The seat covers parts of the South Coast of NSW including parts of the City of Wollongong and Shellharbour and to the west Bowral, Moss Vale, Berrima and Fitzroy Falls.

Gary lives outside the electorate in Sydney’s northern beaches.

The outspoken Gary opposes Muslim immigration, refugees and is anti-Carbon tax.

The 65-year old Australian rock star was a founding member of Buster Brown with Phil Rudd. After the band split Gary went on to front Rose Tattoo as Angry Anderson and Rudd joined AC/DC.

Rose Tattoo were one of Australia’s most influential and successful hard rock band of the late 70s and 80s with a string of hits including ‘Bad Boy For Love’, ‘Rock and Roll Outlaw’ and ‘We Can’t Be Beaten’.

The band was a major influence of Guns ‘N Roses who covered their song ‘Nice Boys’.
