Guitar Origins:

Rogers started playing guitar when he was 12.

"I started playing in bands in the late '70s. My sister Nancy had a friend from work who is married to a guitarist named Vic Johnson. He plays with Sammy Hagar in The Circle. Vic used to take me around to see bands like Sound Barrier. He took me under his wing and showed me the ropes. From there I started playing in local bands. Most of my friends were into metal and we all went on to play in some bands on some note. Brian Korban of Heretic, and formerly of Reverend, was and is one of my best friends. We all grew up in the scene."


Influences:

The Beatles, Iron Maiden, Jimi Hendrix


Fun Facts:

Rogers goes ice staking on the weekends with his family.

He cites John Denver as being the most embarassing music in his collection, but notes that "he doesn't need to justify it."

His favorite concert was Bang Your Head Fest in 2003, "mainly because it was my first gig in Germany and I got to see some of my favorite Metal Bands. Dio and Twisted Sister headlined it."
