Robert ("Robbie") Crane (born January 5, 1969 in Orange County, California) is the current bass guitarist with hard rock band Black Star Riders. He was previously the bassist with the band Ratt.

He moved to the Fairfax District of Hollywood, California at the age of 9 where he attended Bancroft Junior High and Fairfax high school. For his 14th birthday his father bought him his first bass guitar from Fairfax Music School in Hollywood. Soon after Robbie and best friend Stuart Waldman were playing Hollywood clubs with their first band "Dreamsuite" when they were only 16. Robbie went on to tech for Bobby Dall of Poison from 1984 - 1986. As a bassist he played in local L.A. bands: Lancia, Hot Wheelz, New Haven and Monroe (Rick Monroe) and has toured with Vince Neil's (Mötley Crüe) solo band featuring Steve Stevens, Dave Marshall, Vik Foxx and also played with Stephen Pearcy and Al Pitrelli in Vertex and has been touring and recording with Ratt since 1996. On March 25, 2012, Crane announced via his Facebook page that he ended his 15-year tenure with Ratt, stating that his attention now was on Lynch Mob which he left the same year.

On 30 May, 2014, it was announced that Crane would be joining Black Star Riders replacing their original bassist Marco Mendoza.[1]
