Roy Rogers (slide guitar) – performance from his video “Slide Guitar For Rock & Blues”
Roy Rogers is considered one of today’s preeminent slide guitarists. Rogers plays a variety of guitar styles related to the Delta blues, but is most often recognized for his virtuoso slide work. He is also an internationally acclaimed producer for John Lee Hooker.
Fans have been waiting five years for a new Roy Rogers solo disc, and Into the Wild Blue does not disappoint. He spent the last year writing the music, and most of the eleven tracks were laid down in just four days. This self-produced album includes a cast of awesome musicians that teamed up with him. On this effort, Rogers took care of the guitars and vocals, and he was joined by Steve Ehrmann on bass, Kevin Hayes behind the drum kit, and Jim Pugh on the keys.
