RIP Mick Cocks, Rose Tattoo

Mick Cocks

I was pretty sad to hear that Rose Tattoo guitarist (and one of the founding members of the band) Mick Cocks passed away earlier this week, after a battle with liver cancer.

Mick becomes the fourth Rose Tattoo member to die from cancer in the past four years, after Peter Wells and Ian Rilen in 2006, and Lobby Loyde in 2007.

Here’s the Tatts in happier times, with one of the greatest rock and roll anthems ever written:
