Legionary guitarist, Roger Fisher talks about his upcoming April Induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with his band Heart. As a founding member of Heart, Roger discusses life on the road and how it all lead to this moment.

 

Roger Fisher (born February 14, 1950 in Seattle, Washington) is a guitarist primarily known as one of the founding members of the band Heart.
 
The band Heart started out as The Army in 1963 in Seattle, Washington, formed by bassist Steve Fossen and brothers Roger Fisher (guitar, mandolin) and Mike Fisher (drummer, guitarist, manager, producer, engineer, sound engineer, light man). The group went by the names Army, Hocus Pocus, and White Heart before settling on just Heart in the early 1970s. Ann Wilson joined the band in 1970 and Nancy in 1974; romances sprang up between the Fisher brothers and Wilson sisters, with Mike dating Ann and Roger dating Nancy.
 
Heart rose to fame following the release of their debut album, Dreamboat Annie, in 1976. Follow-up albums Little Queen, Magazine, and Dog and Butterfly also sold well. Following the release of the Dog and Butterfly album, the Fisher/Wilson romances came to an end. 
 
Roger Fisher went on to join the band "Alias". Alias had a few hits, most notably in 1990 with the song “More Than Words Can Say”, which recently resurfaced in a Subway sandwich commercial.
 
Heart will reunite this April as they all are inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
