West Coast Band
A songwriter (“Hell is for Children”), collaborator, band-member, and producer; Roger served as the house bassist for New York City's legendary Catch A Rising Star comedy club in its groundbreaking 1970s heyday wherein he supported such iconic performers including Robin Williams, Shelley Ackerman, and Richard Belzer to cite a select few.
As a founding member of Pat Benatar's multi-platinum ensemble, Roger was among the first bassists to bridge hard-rock, pop, metal, and new wave with passages that exuded melody and rhythm.
Plying his craft via fretless, extended range, and the traditional four; Roger was twice recognized in CREEM's Top Ten Bassists of the Year Poll. Roger is a Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Nominee and one of the most humble, and gracious people in music.
Drummer for Jack Russell's Great White from 2003 - 2005 and 2011 - 2014.
