BREAKING | Son of Aussie rock legend Angry Anderson identified as the 26-year-old who died following a savage attack in Queenscliffe this morning.

In September, Mr Anderson posted several pictures and videos with Mr Flame at Sydney's Defqon.1 Festival.

Detective Inspector Michael Boutouridis described it as a "bloody" attack and said it was "quite possible" the alleged attacker was under the influence of drugs during the assault.

Gary Anderson, lead singer of rock band Rose Tattoo, has three sons and is heavily involved with a number of charities including Ronald McDonald House and the Prince of Wales Hospital.

The killer of Angry Anderson's son Liam is expected to be charged with murder today in Sydney.

"With the matter in the hands of NSW Police, the family will not be making any comment at this stage, nor are we as Anderson's management in a position to offer any comment on their behalf", the statement read.

Neighbours told 9NEWS they heard " aggressive moaning" coming from Pavilion Reserve just after 5.30am.

Witnesses reported hearing shouting and seeing the pair punching each other in a violent encounter that resulted in Police having to use pepper spray in an effort to restrain Mr Flame, who was told to be still punching Mr Anderson when emergency services arrived.

The alleged attacker, aged 20, was arrested and taken to Manly Police Station to be interviewed.

Friends of the 26-year-old gathered at the scene on Sunday afternoon laying flowers and handwritten notes.

The accused was reportedly in a state of shock when realising what had happened, with Sydney Morning Herald reporting that Mr Flame only became aware of the incident when awakening from an alleged psychotic episode in hospital. "Capsicum spray was used, OC spray, and significant force was used to arrest him".

"I'm certain this is not a random attack".

"It all Started With One Song".

He was refused bail and appeared in person at Manly Local Court on Monday afternoon. She told 7 News: "I just heard a lot of, say for at least half an hour, moaning".

"Then we found out it was obviously him being kicked or stabbed". "It just sounded like a guy doing boot camp, running up the hill and exhaling".

Details are still scarce, but what police have reported describes a horrifying scene of prolonged violence at a beachside park.

"I don't know the circumstances leading to them being at the reserve this morning".
