With Roger Capps in the pocket, the former Patricia Mae Andrzejewski hit a generation with her best shot!
A songwriter (“Hell is for Children”), and producer, Roger was the house bassist for New York City's legendary Catch A Rising Star comedy club in its groundbreaking 1970s heyday wherein he supported performers including Robin Williams, Shelley Ackerman, and Richard Belzer to cite a few.
As a founding member of Pat Benatar's multi-platinum ensemble, Roger was among the first bassists to bridge hard-rock, pop, metal, and new wave.
Plying his craft via fretless, extended range, and the traditional 4, Roger was twice voted in CREEM's Top Ten Bassists of the Year Poll.
As I was witness, the Pat Benatar Band with Roger, drummer Myron Grumbacher, guitarist Neil Giraldo, and keyboardist Charlie Giordano were among the best of their generation on record and on stage - and are thereby long overdue for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognition.
