Biography

American singer and songwriter who was an overnight success with his first recorded hit in 1957 that sold a million copies, "Honeycomb." He recorded 31 LPs that included six gold singles and one gold album, appeared on TV shows and had his own TV variety show, by 1986.

In 1967, on his way home from a Christmas party, he was severely beaten in an altercation with an off-duty cop. He was hospitalized for over a year with three brain operations, and in rehab for several years before he began to write music again. He did return to the entertainment circuit at fairs, nightclubs, concerts and TV.

During his recovery period following his beating, Rodger's first wife died from a blood clot in the brain, leaving him with four kids. He made a second marriage to a ballerina 22 years his junior, Mary, and they had one daughter.

In early 2000 he made a contemporary performance at the "Remember When Theater" in Branson, MO.
