Roy Rogers (Blues)

A northern California-based blues guitarist, Roy Rogers works firmly out of a Delta blues acoustic style and is particularly good with a slide. A member of John Lee Hooker's '80s Coast to Coast Band, Rogers produced and played on Hooker's Grammy-winning comeback album, The Healer, and its follow-up, Mr. Lucky. During the early '70s, Rogers played with a variety of Bay Area bar bands. In 1976, he and harpist David Burgin recorded A Foot in the Door, which was released on Waterhouse Records. For the next few years, he played in various bands before he formed his own, the Delta Rhythm Kings, in 1980. Two years later, John Lee Hooker asked Rogers to join his Coast to Coast Band and the guitarist accepted. Rogers stayed with Hooker for four years, leaving in 1986. That same year, he released his debut album, Chops Not Chaps, on Blind Pig Records. The record was successful with blues audiences and was nominated for a W.C. Handy Award.

In 1987, he released his second solo album, Slidewinder, which was followed two years later by Blues on the Range. In 1990, Rogers produced Hooker's The Healer, and the following year he produced the iconic bluesman's Mr. Lucky, which also won a Grammy. In 1991, Rogers recorded a duet album, R&B, with harmonica player Norton Buffalo. The following year, the duo released another record, Travellin' Tracks. Rogers' output lagged in the mid-'90s, but he worked steadily at the end of the decade, performing concerts across America and recording albums like 1997's Rhythm & Groove and 1998's Pleasure + Pain. He recorded an album in 2001 with Shana Morrison (Van Morrison's daughter) and released an instrumental album entitled Slideways in 2002. A duet album with Norton Buffalo appeared later that year called Roots of Our Nature. Split Decision was issued by Blind Pig Records in 2009. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Swamp dream... Wow. Smell the bayou.... That's big delta!
he graduated from vallejo high a year after me. even back in '67 he was totally absorbed in his guitar. i couldn't understand the obsession then. but time has proven the beauty and quality that resulted. way to go,Roy!
Can sure Hooker's influence on Roger's stuff,but you have to like Delta style Blues!
Rolling Stone published their top 100 guitar players. Yea you guessed it. Roy was nowhere to be found. Kidding right.
What ever possessed you to think this music would intrest me!!!!
Forget coming back to Colorado, we can't get him back to the Northeast. I do see on his touring schedule that he'll finally be getting back up to New England this spring; can't wait. I had the absolute pleasure of seeing Roy and Norton at the OLD House of Blues in Boston a few years back. What a phenomenal performance by both of them. So sad that Norton has passed but incredibly thankful that I got to see them together.
All you California folks enjoy...we can't get him back in Colorado. Saw him twice a few years back...I have never seen anybody have as much fun making music as he did w/ Norton Buffalo...He does amazing things. Got so into his show I lost track of time and space, just abosorbed... s o good, wish he'd come back to Denver...Roy , you listening?
I was forced to attend this concert at the Empress Theatre in Vallejo, California (my home town) and listen to this guy. Wow! Unbelievable man to hear. I had the best time and now I will continue to do so.
