Rose Tattoo guitarist dies of cancer

This year has seen its fair share of injury and death to many rock stars and after the sad news of Avenged Sevenfold drummer passing away, I have just discovered the news of Mick Cocks, guitarist of Rose Tattoo.

Fighting a battle with liver cancer which he was diagnosed with in April of this year, he sadly passed away 3 days before Christmas on December 22nd.

Mick Cocks and Rose Tattoo are noted as big influences to Guns N’ Roses who have covered a Rose Tattoo song in the past.

The thoughts of everyone here at EspyRock are with his family and friends at this time.
