Roger's Autobiography:

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.

 

Because of life's little surprises it throws at you, I decided to quit the band and get a real job. Well 28 years later the "Rogues" decided to have a reunion. Need I say more, I was "hooked" again. But now it's different. The newly reformed  band is now "Reckless Union" with some of the most awesome talent I've ever played with. I'm having an enormous amount of fun. The girls in the band, or should I say "The Sisters" really add life and vigor, not to mention Gina can tell some really great jokes. This is the best group of musicians I've ever had the pleasure of playing with!
