Gary (Angry) Anderson (1947– )
Gary (Angry) Anderson was born in Melbourne, Victoria. He did not do very well at school and was sometimes teased for being short. As he grew up he liked to be different and to shock people with strange clothes and hairstyles. He worked in a factory, but then became famous as a rock singer with a band called Rose Tattoo.
In 1985, he was a television reporter informing people about the problems of kids who were unemployed, homeless or ill. He later worked on another program which raised money for poor or sick children, and farmers suffering from drought. He continues to work for dozens of groups that help people in need in Australia and overseas.
He has been given an Order of Australia medal, several other awards and was made an Australia Day Ambassador.
