It is with a heavy heart we share the news of John Meyer’s passing. Rest In Peace. 🐍🎸

John Meyer
Guitarist, Composer, Songwriter, Producer

Played with : Saracen/ Swanee/ Rose Tattoo/ Chain

Inducted into the West Australian Music Industry’s “Hall of Fame”

Outstanding Album of the Year Award and The Producers Award

——

John was born in Three Springs, a small farming town in rural Western Australia. The first born of Dutch immigrants, John’s father Jan was a jazz fan and John grew up to the sounds of Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman and the like. Jan, known to his friends as “Fred”, also played the Guitar, Saxophone, Clarinet and later played bass guitar in a band called the “Spectors” which featured originally as the drummer and then lead singer, a young Bon Scott who later went on to fame as the lead singer of ACDC.

John received a drum kit from his father at age 13 and with much enthusiasm joined a band but in his own words, ”it became obvious to my older band mates that maybe I should take up panel beating or wood chopping. I was keen but sadly lacked that necessary ingredient, skill.”

He was lucky that his dad had a number of instruments including guitars, woodwind instruments and a piano, so he amused himself by trying them out. The guitar seemed impossible at first, but at that stage his hero’s were John Lennon of the Beatles and Hank Marvin of the Shadows, who he wanted to emulate.

Around age 14, at a friends house a recording of Peter Green playing guitar with “John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers” was heard and John’s mission in life changed forever.

”After a short time I managed to purchase a second hand Fender Stratocaster Guitar, and my dad actually built my first amplifier. I asked my ex band mates if I could try out as guitarist. I suspect they were highly amused by this but I was in. I couldn’t have been happier!”

John started playing gigs in Perth nightclubs at age 16 which caused a few problems as the legal drinking age in those days was 21!

At age 17 he was surprised when he featured in a national music publication as one of the top Guitar players in Perth along with Peter Walker, a guitarist John much admired from the legendary “Bakery”

Since then Western Australian audiences witnessed the rise of John’s guitar skills in performances and recordings with bands like Fatty Lumpkin and the power trio Saracen.

John had also been taking lessons to learn different playing styles but according to John, Lionel Cranfield [who still owns Zenith Music, a Perth music Institution] gave him classical guitar lessons which was a turning point as far as his technique, discipline skills were concerned. “I was now completely obsessed with playing guitar. Any thoughts of maybe becoming a brain surgeon were laid to rest – music was now my life”.

The next few years were spent touring Australia regularly and making some recordings and honing his skills. During this time several offers from top Australian bands to move to the east coast were rejected. After one tour with Saracen, who were often advertised as being the biggest unsigned crowd-pulling band in the country, John decided to move on.

After relocating to Sydney in 1981, John toured extensively with some of the big names in Australian music including Swanee and Sharon O’Neil before joining Australian legends Rose Tattoo. “Angry Anderson and I had met a few years previously when I played the legendary Bondi Lifesaver in Sydney. Angry was the celebrity DJ that night and after our performance we received a bottle of Jack Daniels backstage along with a message, ‘great gig regards Angry’.”

“A couple of years later I received a call from Angry while he was touring the along with ZZ Top and Aerosmith and he asked “do you have a passport?” Robin Riley, a friend and a great player had just left the band. I was reluctant due to the circumstances and I was already working with Jimmy Barnes’s brother John Swan and his band Swanee.” John had great respect for the great singer, ex ACDC bass player Mark Evans, who was also in the band. “I was really enjoying working with these guys but soon after I met with Angry and Robbie Williams, his manager, and entered a never to be forgotten period of my musical journey.”

Over the next few years John co-wrote many songs with Angry Anderson that appeared on the “Southern Stars” and “Beats of a Single Drum” albums.

John then joined Australia’s premier Blues Band Chain. “I had been a fan of Chain since day one and regular guitarist Phil Manning was ill so Matt Taylor gave me a call, I had just left Rose Tattoo and was a little undecided about it at first, but once we started the first tour I loved the opportunity to play Blues, although it took a while to play a more subdued style after years of heavy rock. Phil Manning decided not to return to the band so Matt asked me to sign up permanently, well at least for the next 4 years!” Albums recorded during this period include ”Australian Rhythm and Blues” and ”Blue Metal”. John also co-wrote with Matt Taylor for these albums and co-produced “Blue Metal”. John appeared on Matt Taylor’s Solo album, ”Walls to McGoo”, co-writing the track “Adelaide River,” one of his favourite songs.

During this period “Saracen” briefly reformed for some sell-out reunion shows. The band also recorded a self-titled album, which although released independently, received some excellent reviews in European music publications.

John recorded his first all instrumental album in 1992 and was rewarded with that year’s West Australian music industry’s Outstanding Album of the Year Award. This album also received The Producers Award for John and Tom Thorpe.

John was awarded Guitarist of the Year and in 1993 and received an award from the West Australian Music Industry Association in recognition of Outstanding Artistic Contribution to the State through Achievement in the Arts.

John then spent time developing his studio and producing/composing music for television advertising and documentaries.

During this time session work for other studios and artists beckoned along with teaching select students.

In 1999 John released an Instrumental Album “The Shaman” with Jazz/fusion influences to critical acclaim.

In 2003 John was inducted into the West Australian Music Industry’s “Hall of Fame”

November 2004 at the Bridgetown Blues Festival saw the launch of the Album “John Meyer’s Blues Express” featuring Peter Oats on Bass Guitar and vocals, Ric Eastman on drums and John on guitar.

John Meyer’s Blues Express appeared at The Australian Blues Festival in Goulburn NSW in February 2008 and will continue to play select shows including the 2008 “Blues at Bridgetown”.

European Tourdates 2021

We managed to reschedule most of the postponed European dates of the past run. All tickets remain valid. Only Hengelo/March 18 2020 & Lyon/March 25 2020 couldn’t be rescheduled – tickets for both shows will be refunded.

European Tour dates postponed

We are extremely sorry to announce that as a result of the measures in course of COVID-19 we are forced to postpone all Rose Tattoo European Tour dates from Tuesday, March 17th on. That means the shows in Karlstadt (March 14th) and Malmö (March 15th) are still taking place, but Osnabrück, Hengelo, Uden, Strasbourg, London, Paris, Lyon, Zürich, Ulm and Nuremberg are off. We are devastated, but working on possibilities to come back on a later occasion. Stay healthy and strong in those difficult times!

ROSE TATTOO will release “Outlaws“ March 6

Via: blabbermouth.net

Australian hard rock legends ROSE TATTOO will release “Outlaws“, a re-recording of the iconic “Rock N Roll Outlaw” LP, on March 6.

In addition to classics like “Nice Boys (Don’t Play Rock ‘N’ Roll)”, “Rock N’ Roll Outlaw”, “One Of The Boys” and “Bad Boy For Love”, which have etched their way into the music landscape over the last 40-plus years, “Outlaws” includes three bonus tracks from the very early days, songs that were demoed and never made the final cut, those being “love song” “Rosetta”, written back in 1975 by Angry Anderson and Ian Rilens, “Snow Queen” and “Sweet Love Rock and Roll”, penned by Ian Rilens. read more…

Thundermother will support Tatts in Europe – Location upgrade in Nürnberg!

We are happy to present Swedish Rock act Thundermother as support on next coming ROSE TATTOO shows (no Strassbourg!).
