Biography

 

Born in Seattle, Washington on February 14th, 1950, Roger Fisher was founding guitarist of the rock group Heart, globally known through the sales of more than 30 million albums. Roger has played in almost every major city in North America. He has also toured Europe, Japan, Australia, Uzbekistan and Russia, and performed at massive events in the Czech Republic, Japan, Canada and the United States for as many as 280,000 people at a single rock show. He has appeared on a multitude of television shows including Johnny Carson and Jay Leno, and  television broadcasts for more than 60 million people in Europe.

 

Songs featuring Roger's songwriting and iconic guitar riffs have been used in numerous TV commercials, TV shows, Guitar Hero (3 songs), and in several movies, including Charlie’s Angels and Shrek 3. Other artists have covered his material, including Eminem. His timeless anthem guitar intro to Barracuda is frequently used as the lead in for America's number one rated radio talk show, Rush Limbaugh. Tony Robbins refers to Barracuda as part of the turning point in his life. It was also controversially featured by Republican presidential and Vice Presidential candidates, John McCain and Sarah Palin in the 2008 election.

 

The original line-up of Heart was inducted to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2013.
