A native Californian, Roy Rogers was born in 1950 and grew up in San Francisco. He started playing guitar at age 12 and was exposed to a wealth of music styles, most notably the blues, which became his passion especially the Delta Blues (Robert Johnson) and slide guitar.

Guitar Player said, Many guitarists dabble in slide guitar, but the number of modern masters can probably be counted on one hand. Roy Rogers is surely one of them..., and Rolling Stone offered, Rogers is an exceptionally articulate slide guitarist one of the rare guitar heroes who values feeling over flash.
