Angry Anderson rushes back to Sydney after son killed
Australian rock musician Angry Anderson is grieving the loss of his son after it was revealed that Liam Anderson was allegedly killed by his best friend on Sunday morning.
He was spotted arriving from Western Australia where he was performing with Rose Tattoo on their 40th anniversary tour.
Angry has been heard in the past giving credit to his children for keeping him grounded and turning his life around.

Friends and family have chosen to remember the 26-year-old as they left tributes and messages at Sydney’s northern beaches where the attack took place.
The man reportedly behind the attack was 20-year-old Matthew Flame who according to the police, was Liam’s best friend, as the pair would often comment and like each other’s posts on social media.
Police are said to have arrested Flame at the scene and he is expected to be charged with murder.
Adam Thompson, the frontman for Chocolate Starfish and close friend of Angry said to The Daily Telegraph: “I’m sure he’d be wanting answers – how it escalated to the level it did.”
He said that Angry would be grieving as a “father way more now than Angry the performer.”
Liam posted many photos and videos with Flame on his Instagram account, with the most recent being in September at Sydney’s Defqon.1 Festival.
“Defqon was lit, shout to the homie (Mr Flame) for being a real one,” he captioned the post. “Love ya mate x.”
A friend of the pair commented saying: “You guys are obsessed (with) each other.”
“Yeah pretty much,” responded Liam.
Flame then light-heartedly suggested that the commenter was “jealous” of their friendship.
Witnesses at the scene of the crime recounted the events to the police and said that they heard “shouting and moaning” from the Pavillion Reserve park.
Due to critical head injuries, Liam passed away almost instantly.
