    (December 15, 1946- )
    Host of ‘Rodney on the ROQ’ on KROQ 106.7 in Los Angeles
    Named ‘Mayor of Sunset Strip’ by legendary actor Sal Mineo
    He was a groupie for major acts from the 60’s (such as Beatles and David Bowie).
    He auditioned for Davy Jones’s role as one of the Monkees. (He was later cast as one of Davy Jones’s stand-ins on the show).
    Whenever girl groupie wanted to see their major acts backstage, they were forced to go through Rodney first.
    He was unwittingly used as a groupie courier for notorious record producer Kim Fowley.
    He owned an English Disco nightclub in Los Angeles (it is now a martial arts studio).
    No matter how much promotion he gave to the bands, he didn't profit from it.
    Over the years, the time slot of ‘Rodney on the ROQ’ got pushed back from 8PM, then 10 PM and then midnight.
    He looks like a cross between Moe Howard of the Three Stooges and Dr. Ruth Westheimer.
    His love for music has elevated him from being a groupie to a newspaper journalist and eventually a promoter and radio DJ.
    He helped David Bowie get signed to his first record deal.
    Since its inception in 1976, his radio show is still a popular with young people.
    He was among the first DJ to interview and play groups like Van Halen, Blondie, The Sex Pistols, The Cure, The Clash, The Smiths and Nirvana.
    His keen sense of ear has helped break bands like No Doubt and Green Day on the airwaves.
    His documentary ‘Mayor of the Sunset Strip’ has showed him as an awesome rock band promoter.
    In that documentary, some celebrities were envious about how Rodney could score more women than they could.
    His parents divorced when he was three years old.
