Ross Wilson (2)

Real Name:Ross Andrew Wilson
Profile:

Ross Wilson (born 18 November 1947, Armadale, Victoria, Australia) is an Australian singer-songwriter, guitarist and producer. He is the co-founder and frontman of the rock groups Daddy Cool (5) and Mondo Rock, as well as a number of other bands, in addition to performing solo.

In 1964, Wilson formed his first band The Pink Finks and in 1965 released a cover version of "Louie Louie", a bona fide garage band record, and possibly Australia's first independent single. His next band was The Party Machine (2) between 1967-1969. In 1969, he formed Sons Of The Vegetal Mother. In 1970, four members of this group formed a side-project named Daddy Cool. After Daddy Cool broke up in late 1972, Wilson became involved in the production of many Australian bands, including the 1970s group Skyhooks. In 1976, he formed Mondo Rock, initially to promote a single that he had recorded and it wasn't until 1978 that they issued their debut single. In 1983, his former wife Pat Wilson (2) had a Number 1 hit in Australia with "Bop Girl" which he wrote and co-produced. After Mondo Rock disbanded in 1990, Wilson pursued a solo career as well as performing in side projects, such as the power-funk outfit RAW (1991-1993).

Wilson was individually inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame in 1989 and again as a member of Daddy Cool in 2006.
