T. Roy Taylor of Native American Cherokee and Choctaw descent, comes from the Panhandle of Texas and writes no nonsense, straight to the point lyrics, backed by a new and fresh solid TEXAS ROCK sound! Raised in the Panhandle of Texas and growing up listening to C&W, Rockabilly, Rock, Hard Rock, Metal, Blues Rock, Blues, and some classical, helped develop his writing style today. A self taught guitar player on acoustic and electric guitar he formed his own rock band at the age of 16 and was playing almost every weekend during his high school years. Moving out to Los Angeles California, he played with various bands and now plays venues up and down the coasts of Southern California and is presently booking outdoor concerts.
T. Roy Taylor has 10 New TEXAS ROCK tracks with a solid, Rock tight beat, that has a TEXAS ROCK style edge. If that's not enough to spark your interest in buying this CD, listen to this. On track one you can hear ROCK N' ROLL HALL OF FAME LEGEND - ROBBY KRIEGER OF THE DOORS! ROBBY is playing electric slide guitar on this track and it is bound to become one of the greatest electric slide guitar solos ever recorded! Robby and THE DOORS were inducted into the ROCK N ROLL OF FAME IN 1993. They have sold 75,000,000 million albums and still climbing. In 2007 a star was placed on the HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME in their honor.
Also Featured is ARTHUR BARROW, former Bass Guitar player and Bandleader for Frank Zappa. Art was also Co-Producer and Recording Engineer on "SOLUTIONS", and was responsible for producing ROBBY KRIEGER OF THE DOORS electric slide guitar solo on my first track, "Mr. Cool Demeanor". Art has played with some the MOST FAMOUS music stars of all time. You have probably heard Art before and just didn't realize it. On the movie soundtrack "TOP GUN", starring Tom Cruise, the 1987 Grammy Award Winning song, "Take My Breath Away", by Berlin, has Arthur Barrow playing every instrument on that song except guitar. On the movie "Scarface", starring Al Pacino (Al Pacino should have won an Oscar for that movie), Art co-wrote 3 of the songs for that movie soundtrack with the famous Giorgio Moroder! If you look at the end of the credits Art is the music arranger for this soundtrack.
Arthur Barrow has written, arranged, produced, engineered, or played with the following artists: ROBBY KRIEGER, Diana Ross, Irene Cara, Janet Jackson, Billy Idol, America, Joe Cocker, The Motels, Charlie Sexton, Oingo Boingo, and Nina Hagen just to name a few!
