Ronnie Simmons Replaces Bob Spencer In Rose Tattoo

Rose Tattoo has a new guitarist. Ronnie Simmons has replaced Bob Spencer in the band.

Angry Anderson announced:

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 well-known wizardry which has positioned him in the Los Angeles Rock scene.
He regularly plays in the Richie Ramone line-up 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

Ronnie released his covers EP ‘Cover For Me’ in 2021.

His new song ‘Little Misunderstood’ was released in 2022.

Bob Spencer has served in four Australian classic rock bands. Bob was a founding member of Finch (1973 to 1977) before joining Skyhooks (1977 to 1980). In 1986 he joined The Angels (1986-1992) and was also a member of Rose Tattoo from 2017 to 2022.
