Named after Hollywood’s "King of the Cowboys", Rogers started playing guitar at the age of 12 and became entranced by the recordings of the blues, especially Robert Johnson. By age 15 Roy was playing in a local R & B band, and quickly became a young blues fanatic hitting the San Francisco’s ‘60s club scene – even once taking his little brother to see Jimi Hendrix perform.  When John Lee Hooker asked him to go out on tour in 1982, it changed his life.

Rogers toured throughout the 80’s with Hooker, also recording with BB King and Miles Davis along the way - becoming synonymous with feverish slide guitar skills. As a producer, he garnered dozens of production credits, eight Grammy nominations, and two Grammies were awarded for his work with Hooker.

As a recording artist, as well as a producer and composer, Rogers’ has recorded not only on his own to critical acclaim, but with others including Carlos Santana.
