Born in California in 1950, he began playing guitar at the age of twelve and discovered the great blues players early on. Through the years he developed a distinctive style of playing slide guitar that is instantly recognizable and has turned him into one of the premier slide guitarists performing today.
Rogers formed his own band, the Delta Rhythm Kings, in 1980, hit the club circuit, and then toured Europe with the 1982 San Francisco Blues Festival Revue (recording an album with that Revue in Paris).
Shortly after returning from Europe, Rogers joined John Lee Hooker and his Coast to Coast Blues Band. Roy eventually began to open shows as a solo act, performing some of the classic country blues and original compositions he’d been perfecting for years.
Said Hooker, “I just can’t say enough good things about Roy. Some of the best slide I’ve heard, best blues I’ve heard.”
Years later Roy would produce a total of four recordings for John Lee Hooker for which he received two Grammys. He received additional Grammy nominations for his songwriting and his work on television and movie soundtracks, including “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “The Hot Spot” which he recorded with Miles Davis, John Lee Hooker and Taj Mahal.
He self- released his first live recording – Live at the Sierra Nevada Brewery Big Room - in 2005. The concert received wide national television exposure on PBS stations as part of the “Sierra Center Stage” series. His latest release - Split Decision - which came out this summer, is his first studio recording with his band, The Delta Rhythm Kings, in seven years.
