    ROSIE were a Hard Rock band formed by ex THE GODZ guitarist Mark Chatfield in Columbus, Ohio in early 1980.
    The name Rosie was inspired, as Chatfield tells it," by the old tale of Rosie Palmer and her five sisters". The band debuted with a self titled four song 10" EP in early 1981 and contributed a further track, "Sorry (I Forgot Your Name)", to a radio station sampler album entitled "Q-FM 96 Hometown Album Project Volume 3". With bassist Jay Chesbro being replaced by Ed Means, a full length studio album entitled "Precious Metal", was recorded and issued by Doubletree Records in late 1981. After a tough start to 1984 due to management problems, Chatfield opted to join BOB SEGER's SILVER BULLET BAND for a lengthy tour. This left vocalist Carl Shelor to take over guitar duties and sing too. Bassist Robert "Wild" West was then suceeded by a new member, Tom Courteney. With Chatfield returning from the Seger tour, Rosie went into Bison Studios and started working on what was to be their next album. With Shelor and Chatfield being the principal songwriters from the start, the music flowed and they realized they were writing some of Rosie's best music. That album never came to be however, as Chatfield got another call from Seger, and ROSIE was left to look for a replacement. In the meantime singer Carl B. Shelor recorded a solo album entitled "Three Guesses" under the "band" name CBS. It was shelved at the time, (1987), but was later released on CD by Retrospect Records.

    In 1988, Mark Chatfield, who had moved to Las Vegas and opened his Cowtown Guitars store, contacted Means and Shelor about a possible ROSIE reunion. After some planning, it took place over two nights at one of their favourite old haunts, and was recorded for release as a thank you to the bands loyal fans. The band's second and final album, "Rosie Live!", was recorded at The Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio on November 25th and 26th 1988. This venue later became infamous as the place where former PANTERA guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott was gunned down onstage in 2004.
    Chatfield still plays with Bob Seger's Silver Bullet Band, with occasional reformations of The Godz, and also with Ohio band LUVHEAD. Rosie still get back together to play the occasional live show every now and then, but have no plans to record again.
