Roy Rogers

There are at least three artists with that name: 1. a country music star, 2. a slide guitar player and 3. a house producer from the 90’s

1. Roy Rogers (born Leonard Franklin Slye) (November 5, 1911 – July 6, 1998), was a singer and cowboy actor, as well as the namesake of the famous Roy Rogers Restaurants chain. He and his second wife Dale Evans, his golden palomino Trigger, and his German Shepherd Dog, Bullet, were featured in over one hundred movies and The Roy Rogers Show. The show ran on radio for nine years before moving to television from 1951 through 1957. His productions usually featured a sidekick, often either Pat Brady, (who drove a jeep called “Nellybelle”) or the crotchety Gabby Hayes. Roy’s nickname was “King of the Cowboys”. Dale’s nickname was “Queen of the West.” For many Americans (and non-Americans), he was the embodiment of a cowboy.

2. “Roy Rogers means the modern master in the art of slide guitar…His versatility with the technique is nothing short of astonishing.” ~ All Music Guide

Roy Rogers is considered one of the world’s premier slide guitarists performing today. With 8 Grammy nominations as producer and performer, he is also an internationally acclaimed producer, having produced recordings for John Lee Hooker (4 Grammy Nominations and 2 Grammy Awards) and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott (2 Grammy Nominations). He has received numerous accolades for his songwriting (Grammy Nomination for ‘Song for Jessica’, Grammy nomination for Bonnie Raitt for Best Rock Female Vocal on ‘Gnawin’ On It which he co-wrote), as well as his work on movie soundtracks and television.

    The blame for this page lies squarely on the shoulders of the parents of slide guitar player Roy Rogers. First, you name your child Roy Rogers. Then, you give the boy a guitar and a cowboy hat. How could you not have known his page would be screwed up?

    No one has messed up: artists with the same name share the same page, simple as that.
