and bass, then Angry hits the stage for an explosive Rose Tattoo assault on the senses. A short break heads into Grant Walmsley on vocals and rhythm guitar with all the smash hits of the Screaming Jets including 'Better' written by Grant and released in 1991. The show closes with Angry returning to the stage for a blistering set of AC/DC classics from the Bon Scott era with Mark Evans on bass.

Greg Aldridge on drums. This assault features the cream of rock n roll outfits and covers the four corners of Australian rock.

The book, BLOOD SWEAT AND BEERS – OZ ROCK FROM THE AZTECS TO ROSE TATTOO begins in the late 1960s when Lobby Loyde was blowing up amplifiers on such a regular basis that equipment had to be specially constructed. King of the Sunbury festivals, and former child star, Billy Thorpe then took massive amplification to another level, making history along the way when his band, the Aztecs, pulled as many as 300,000 people to the Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne. Rose Tattoo somehow cranked everything up even higher and became the loudest, most threatening band to ever stalk the earth. Banned from the TV show Countdown, they often played in prisons, and occasionally had to fight, microphone stands in hand, to get out of the very venues they'd
performed in. Then, of course, there were the Angels, Australia's number-one live drawcard, who turned venues across the country into jam-packed paramilitary rallies. Against a backdrop of
interviews with all the major Australian players and international heavyweights, one of Australia's best known rock writers, Murray Engleheart hands out the earplugs and the morning-after aspirin
with BLOOD SWEAT AND BEERS, a literally balls and all tour through the bar-brawling, riot-inducing and occasionally gun-toting Oz rock culture that The Monthly crowned as having 'the highest
expletive count in the history of non-fiction'.
"What an honour. Firstly writing Blood Sweat and Beers, the everything louder than everything else history of Oz rock. Then having that title adopted by a legendary bunch of blokes for a national tour that will see them blast out some of the greatest rock n roll ever made. Scripts don't come no better than that." - Murray Engleheart
ANGRY Anderson The unmistakable Rose Tattoo front man Angry Anderson has slayed audiences and bled on stages across the globe for over 40 years.

On 16 August 2006, Rose Tattoo were inducted into the (ARIA) Hall of Fame. Angry is also known across Australia for his charity work, journalism and political talents. Dai Pritchard brings an incredible arsenal of technical expertise, an expertise broad enough to allow him to slot in easily behind anyone that needs a slice of his power, versatility and finesse. Pritchard the guitarist of choice by some pretty big – and diverse – names, among them Jimmy Barnes, Glen Shorrock of LRB, Doug Parkinson and even Olivia Newton-John and the late, great Billy Thorpe. Stints with Nancy, Kiel Band, Chris Thomas, Steve Flack's Guitar Heroes. In July 2005, Pritchard became a full-time member of Rose Tattoo, proudly blazing his own chops into their musical legacy on their latest album, Blood Brothers.

He also handles a mean sax and loves to sing during his time with The Angels they recorded the albums 'Live Line', 'Howling' and Beyond Salvation, which went on to sell at double platinum status and became the first number one album for 'The Angels' in Australia. "I'm proud of my contribution to The Angels. To me, music hasn't ever been about competition or politics it's about sharing a joyous experience with the players and the listeners... That, the chicks love, and making a quid hopefully". - Jim Hilbun
