Roger Ridley – Tears On My Pillow You Send Me

RidleyHello, my name is Roger Ridley. I am a street musician that plays everywhere, and I was in the Joy Business. I was born in Lumpkin, Georgia, a small town near Atlanta. I started in elementary school when I sang in school program to get out of English class. I moved to New York City in 1964, launched my professional career with Maley & The Isles as the lead singer, the first of many times as a singer. At the age of 26 I married and became a father of three, 2 girls and one boy. They too are musically talented and sing with much feeling and authority. While I was playing in many clubs around New York and through out the tri-state area, the Ridley genius also ran deeply in the house. We are a musical family. All my life I have been surrounded by music: my mother, sisters and brothers are all singers while my father played the guitar a bit. My goals were to share my music and songs with the world; “I pray these goals have been accomplished.” So I thank God and appreciate the fact I have the ability to draw crowds wherever I perform whether it be on the city streets, in the subways, street fairs or the night clubs. (As it appears on Roger’s Facebook page). RIP Roger, we LOVE your music to shine as bright the sun. (nDy)

Tentang pengamen tua, biasa mangkal di stasiun kereta api bawah tanah Santa Monica. Sosok ramah yg biasa nyanyi hingga larut malam seolah menemani penumpang lembur, menjadikannya dikenal sbg sahabat. Serombongan anak muda kreatif lantas dapat ide bikin organisasi untuk kampanye persahabatan via musik. Mereka ngajak si pengamen sbg duta perdamaian lewat video youtube. Rekaman awal Stand By Me viral mendunia dan mengundang simpati. Kerja sama berlangsung selama sembilan tahun, terhenti saat si pengamen wafat. Dunia memang pentas sementara, namun reputasi tetap abadi. (nDy)

  1. Can I simply say what a relief to search out somebody who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know methods to deliver an issue to mild and make it important. Extra folks have to learn this and understand this facet of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you positively have the gift.

  2. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.
