Ross originally joined the band as a replacement for Lee Lips who planned to move to Scotland. He has a degree in music, a natural talent for composing and producing music and currently runs his own recording studio. Ross has been sober since his father picked him up at the airport and rushed him straight to rehab after our 2007 European tour. At first he found the adjustment difficult until one day in September 2010 when he received a haircut that would change his life forever. His birthday is on 24 October and has one child (that he knows about). He was the first Hog member to have any children (that we know about).
