Rodger Roeser


Rocker that loves to write, play and sing. Tend to be influenced by deeper meaning lyrics and more intricate arrangements, but still love a good straightforward rock song. Big voice, not big hair, I play bass and dabble in everything else -- exceptionally good air guitarist. Strong frontman who wears a suit and tie by day and still dreams of leather pants by night slinging an axe and singing to the max.
