Buddy Holly & Beyond Tribute
Johnny Rogers was born in Chicago to parents that were born in the southern states of Kentucky and Tennessee. His father was a radio personality in the late 40’s and early 50’s, who crossed paths with some of the biggest legends of music history Elvis, Hank Sr., George Jones, Lefty Frizel, Marty Robbins and Conway Twitty, to mention a few. When he was very young his father gave him his first guitar. He had no interest in playing, until he heard Buddy Holly for the first time. The song was Rave On. He said it was like someone or something turned a switch on inside of him. From that moment on he knew what he wanted to be in life and that was someone like Buddy. His father showed him a few basic chords. That was all he needed to get started playing. While he was in high school he tried starting his own band, but finding kids his own age with the same taste in music seemed to be impossible. So, he began to look for older guys that grew up listening to the music. He started sneeking in the honky tonks with his fathers help and a fake ID. But, he wasn’t there to drink, he was there to learn about becoming an entertainer.
