Hailing from Hollywood CA, Ronn Moss grew up around the entertainment industry. He knew at 11 years old after watching the Beatles appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show that he wanted to play music and taught himself the bass guitar and drums. Ronn then formed his own bands and started playing in clubs around Los Angeles way before he was of legal age to be in those clubs.
It was in the late 70s that he met Peter Beckett and JC Crowley and together with Ronn’s high school friend John Friesen formed the band, “PLAYER.” The band was signed by famed manager Robert Stigwood to his RSO records label and garnered and handful of top 40 hits including the #1 enduring smash hit, “Baby Come Back.” PLAYER began touring with Eric Clapton, Heart, Kenny Loggins, Boz Skaggs, Little River Band, Gino Vannelli, as well as headlining their own concerts. On the recommendation of Robert Stigwood, and because PLAYER was experiencing a slowdown within the record industry, Ronn decided to try his hand at acting and quickly landed his first film entitled, “Hearts and Armor” that filmed in Sicily and Rome, Italy. Following a progression of movies, TV shows and commercials, led Ronn to originate the iconic role of Ridge Forrester for the CBS Daytime drama, “The Bold And The Beautiful.” Over the next 25 years the show became a worldwide sensation spanning 130 countries, making Ronn an internationally recognized face and personality.
Ronn has continued doing music over the years and has done two solo CDs, “I’m Your Man” and “UnCovered” along with two solo tours in Australia. He has played himself in movies for Italy, “Christmas In Love” and won 2nd place on Italy’s version of “Dancing With The Stars.” In 2012 Ronn decided to exit the role of Ridge Forrester and go into producing with the hit web series, “The Bay” in which he also plays the character of John Blackwell and won an Emmy as a producer in 2015. Ronn was one of the voices in the animated movie, “Bolt” and he’s now interested in producing and directing his own movie, “411.” He just finished another Australian tour in 2014 with his band PLAYER. Ronn, along with his long time musical partner, Peter Beckett, now have a new PLAYER CD available entitled, “Too Many Reasons.”
