Roger's musical journey started in the early 1980s South Florida punk and hardcore scene. Before eventually landing on the name the Drills, the band started out as Upsetters and then briefly went by Stukas, playing shows at Flynn's Ocean 71 and more. After Flynn's closed, the Drills would go on to play often at the Cameo Theatre. Over the years, the Drills played with bands such as Husker Du, Bad Brains, Dead Boys, Suicidal Tendencies, D.R.I., T.S.O.L., The Lords of the New Church, Red Kross and many more! The Drills also played with countless Florida bands such as Sector 4, Amazing Grace, Noise For The Needy, Morbid Opera, Psycho Daisies, Rugged Edge, The Rock City Angels and many more! The Drills would eventually relocate to Los Angeles, morphing into Rattlebone, where they signed with Hollywood Records. Other notable L.A. bands to Roger's credit are Smash Fashion and most recently Crymwav.
