Biography

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. US slide guitarist Roy Rogers plays blues, country and rock music. Aware of the inevitable confusion, Rogers named his publishing company “Chops Not Chaps Music.” The discography of this profile contains the following albums which are from him and/or from Roy Rogers & Norton Buffalo:

    the annoying thing is having the wrong person's picture in your playlist...i have many artists pictured who is not the one for the song that i played...All it would take is for us to be able to choose which artist we want pictured....

    unless last.fm will change drastically, no one will ever sort this out, they just don't do that because it would be very hard. It's the same all over last.fm: http://www.last.fm/music/Justice , http://www.last.fm/music/Air ...

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