Rumors spread immediately about some extremely successful concerts.

Roy Rogers has released scores of critically acclaimed records with his band The Delta Rhythm Kings, in duo format with harmonica player Norton Buffalo and, more recently, with keyboardist Ray Manzarek of the legendary band The Doors.

Roy Rogers was for many years a regular member of John Lee Hooker & the Coast To Coast Blues Band, and he was the producer on the records that made John Lee Hooker a superstar and Grammy winner with the albums "The Healer", "Mr. Lucky', 'Boom Boom' and 'Chill Out'.
