One of the biggest crowds yet turned out on Wednesday afternoon for the official unveiling on the Elvis Wall of Fame of the latest recipient to be acknowledged for their contribution to Australian music.

Rose Tattoo front man, Gary (Angry) Anderson was very humble in accepting the honour, unveiling a plaque on the wall at Kelly Reserve.

Angry charmed the large number of people present and admitted he had been an Elvis fan for much of his life.

“I was in to jazz and the crooners like Frank Sinatra. Then I heard this voice, it was Elvis and was immediately a big fan.”

Just to prove his ‘relationship’ with Elvis, he undid his shirt to show an Elvis tattoo in the middle of his back - much to the delight of the crowd.

Deputy Mayor, Alan Ward welcomed the many visitors and said the festival was shaping as perhaps the biggest in its 23 years history.

He outlined Angry Anderson’s music background, but also the large amount of work he does for community organisations.

“He is definitely a worthy addition to the Elvis Wall of Fame,” he said.
