Internationally-acclaimed television, film, and recording star Ronn Moss
portrays Ridge Forrester, the dynamic young fashion magnate on The Bold and
the Beautiful. Ronn has been central to all the main story lines of the
daytime drama since its premiere in the spring of 1987.
A native of Los Angeles, Ronn was originally attracted to the rock & roll
music field, where beginning at the age of eleven years old, he started
learning first the drums, then guitar and electric bass. Even before he was
old enough to legally be in clubs and bars, he was singing and playing bass
guitar in bands he formed to entertain in hundreds of seedy establishments
thoughout the city.
In 1976, Ronn joined creative forces with three fellow musicians to form
the musical group "Player." In a spider and cockroach-infested garage in the
Hollywood hills, they wrote and rehearsed their music that would soon attract
the attention of music impressario Robert Stigwood, who signed them to his
RSO Records where they produced the albums "Player" and "Danger Zone."
Later, under the Casablanca Records label, they produced the album "Room
With A View." Tours followed the release of these albums with such groups as
Gino Vanelli, Boz Scaggs, Eric Clapton, Heart and The Little River Band, as
well as their own headlining concerts. In the first three weeks of 1978, their
single "Baby Come Back" occupied the #1 position on the national pop charts and
"Player" was voted to Billboard's honor roll of best new singles artist of 1978.
Ronn has presently teamed up with another original member of "Player,"
Peter Beckett, and the two have produced their fifth CD as "Player" entitled
"Lost in Reality," through River North Records or available from the web site
PlayerTheBand.com. Peter and Ronn are presently working on their sixth CD. A
compilation "Best of Player" is also newly available through the web site.
Ronn lives in Hollywood, California with his wife, actress/writer Shari Shattuck
and their two daughters.
