  1. You can hear recent work by Jimy Rogers on Itunes and CD baby, including a Holiday single of Merry Christmas Baby and White Christmas recorded live last year. He's in fine form and really delivers, as was his way for over 40 years. GG Blue Road band mate.

  4. Saddened to hear of Jimy's passing. He and I produced some excellent work together. A father figure to me and a driving force in my career. A hard worker, compassionate human and the most gripping vocalist I've ever heard. He mentored many young musicians and knew that the music always lives on, regardless of our mortality. The Bartman.

  5. Saddened to hear of Jimy's passing. He and I produced some excellent work together and saw each other through some heart-wrenching times. He mentored many young musicians and never gave up on sharing his love of music with the world. To those who gave him grief and caused sleepless nights, you know all along it was your ego cringing at his coolness (no joke). This dog eat dog world lost a great one.
