AC/DC’s Ex-Bass Player Joins Rose Tattoo

MARK Evans, the  bass player in AC/DC from 1975 until 1977, has joined another legendary Australian rock band.

Screen Shot 2017-08-04 at 13.08.33Guitarist Bob Spencer has announced on Facebook that the 61-year-old Evans is part of a Rose Tattoo line-up that will tour later this year with another well known Aussie hard rock act, The Angels.

“How’s this for a band? Dai Pritchard, Mark Evans, John “Watto” Watson, Angry, Moi. Meet the new Rose Tattoo,” Spencer wrote.

Like Spencer, Evans is a former member of the band Finch. Evans – who joined in March 1975, replacing Rob Bailey – was replaced by Cliff Williams in AC/DC in 1977.

In 2011 Evans released his biography, Dirty Deeds: My Life Inside/Outside of AC/DC. He has been involved in a number of solo and group projects in recent years.

The news of Spencer joining the Tatts is also unexpected and significant; he is a prominent Angels alumni who had planned to tour with a version of the band fronted by Doc Neeson – before the singer died in 2014.

The dates with The Angels (known in the US as Angel City) are:

October 27: Crown Casino, Melbourne.

October 28: Crown Casino, Melbourne.

November 10: Doyalson RSL, Doyalson.

November 11: Etamogah Hotel, Kellyville Ridge.

November 24: Panthers, Penrith.

December 1: Eatons Hill Hotel, Albany Creek.

December 2: Nightquarter, Helensvale.

NOTE: An earlier version of this story incorrectly described Mark Evans as AC/DC’s original bass player.
