I welcome the awesome ROGER FISHER to NWP!
This April, Roger Fisher will be inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.
Born in Seattle, Washington on February 14th, 1950, Roger Fisher discovered a love for music at a very early age. In 1965 he began laying the foundation for his own style of guitar playing. Designing instruments, playing guitar with a violin bow and generally being willing to try anything to produce interesting, unique music was his passion.
As founding guitarist of the rock group Heart, these adventurous energies made themselves globally known through the sales of more than 23 million albums. Having left that group in 1979, a musical rebirth began that took ten years to reach fruition. The first album to emerge from those years of work in his recording studio was “Standing, Looking Up,” an instrumental effort that portrays earthly birth and the subsequent reaching out to other worlds and wonders.
Since then, he joined former Heart buddies Mike Derosier and Steve Fossen, as well as former Sheriff members Freddie Curci and Steve DeMarchi to form a group called “Alias”. In the year and a half they were together, they had a number one single, a number ten single, and were on several national TV shows, including two performances on the Tonight show – once with Johnny Carson and once with Jay Leno.
Since 1968, Roger has toured North America repeatedly, traveling to all fifty states, playing in all but two of the provinces. He has been on television shows that broadcast for more than 60 million people in Europe, played the biggest shows in Japan’s and Canada’s histories, performed for as many as three hundred thousand people at a single rock show. He has toured Japan, Australia and the USSR in addition to North America and Europe.
It's good to talk.
