Bio: John Roderick labored in local semi-obscurity for ten years in a succession of good bands that went nowhere. Undaunted, he kept playing music until he rose to the level of national, and then international semi-obscurity. As frontman of The Long Winters he has done almost everything you can do in rock music, short of becoming rich and famous. John also considers himself a widely respected journalist, an extensively quoted author and philosopher, a prima ballerina, a cowboy and an astronaut.
