Members from WAR, Malo, El Chicano, Thee Midnigters and more. Much of Roger Jrs musical taste is owed to his father. A big testament to this was his introduction to L.A oldies. Roger quotes saying: " That whole L.A oldie sound shares so much with Jamaican music.
Any lover of The Techniques is gonna easily love Sly,Slick, and Wicked. Any lover of Gene Chandler is gonna dig Alton Ellis ." Over the years Roger has shared the stage with many Jamaican legends including: Leonard Dillion, Rico Rodriguez, Roy Ellis, Alton Ellis, Pat Kelly, Derrick Morgan, and Prince Buster. His love for Reggae can be seen here with these versions. "Jackie Mittoo and Winston Wright, man those are my guys! There were tons of great organ and piano players in the reggae, but those 2 guys were consistently on top of their tune! Roger is a founding member of The Aggrolites and tours with them constantly.
"Its really great to see the love for Skinhead Reggae all over the world. This music will never die" Recently Roger formed a group called The Bullets. The Bullets pay respect to the L.A Jamaican connection. "Its an All-Star band in a sense that everyone has payed their dues and has played music for so long.
Its really hard to gather a group of guys that are all on the same page. I am a lucky mug! Funnest time I have ever had playing music!" www.rogerrivas.com Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
