I moved to Arkansas from Missouri at an early age, (I'm talking 3rd grade). Music in general has always been a great influence in my life. Bands such as the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Ted Nugent being the most influential. Now to "The Rogues". Around the 8th or 9th grade I started "hangin" with a group of guys with the same musical interest so we decided to form a band. By our senior year we were well known regionally, even 2 appearances on WHBQ's talent party hosted by George Klein who was lifelong friends with Elvis Presley. We even won the northeast Ark. battle of the bands contest. The "Rogues" were making good money which paid for my 1st year of college. But all good things must come to an end, or in my case a 28 year hiatus.
