Early Years

Roxie was born in Sacramento, California and grew up in the East Bay in Pleasanton. Ryan's father, Polish, used to play trumpet and his mother was a drummer in her high school marching band. Around age five Roxie picked up the guitar but was more interested in drums. It wasn't until he was around eleven or twelve that he started taking guitar seriously.

Roxie learned to play guitar from an old record player and invented his own form of scratching, going through many records in the process, picking out guitar parts. He was influenced by albums like Van Halen and has had many guitar heroes including Brian May from Queen, Steve Stevens, Elliot Easton from The Cars, Neil Geraldo from Pat Benatar and Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick.

Career

1977–1990: Candy & Electric Angels

Candy were a band featuring original members Kyle Vincent, Jonathan Daniel, John Schubert, and guitarist Geoff Siegel. Gilby Clarke replaced Siegel after six months. The album Whatever Happened To Fun was released in 1985. Later that year, Gilby Clarke replaced Kyle Vincent as lead vocalist, and Roxie joined the lineup on guitar. After Gilby parted to form his own band "Kill for Thrills" the remaining band members joined up with new lead vocalist Shane and became the "Electric Angels".

The band then moved to New York where they signed to Atlantic Records; the signing took place at a show opening for Dogs D'amour and Mother Love Bone (some of whose members went on to form Pearl Jam). Their self-titled album, produced by Tony Visconti (best known for his work with T Rex, Bowie and Thin Lizzy to name a few) was released in 1990. The band began work on a second album (tentatively called New York Times) but was dropped by Atlantic and the record was never released.

1991–2000: Alice Cooper, Gilby Clarke, Slash & DPM

Between 1994 and 1996 Roxie worked with various artists. He provided guitar on Gilby Clarke's albums, Pawnshop Guitars , Blooze , The Hangover and Rubber . Though uncredited, Roxie also lent guitar work to Tal Bachman. Roxie played on the hit single "She's So High" produced by Bob Rock. Roxie played guitar on) Inhale by James Michael (from Sixx AM). In 2000 Roxie also wrote and recorded several songs on Slash's Snakepit's second album Ain't Life Grand .

Roxie began working with Alice Cooper in 1996; after a recommendation from Gilby Clark, and a shady character known as 'Bobby from Mates', Roxie impressed during an audition. He was offered a 'one year tour' playing with Alice. His first show with the Cooper band was at Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo club in Cabo San Lucas.

In 1997 Roxie joined up with long-time friends drummer Mike Fasano and bassist Will Effertz to create the band Dad's Porno Mag. After Effertz left, guitarist Keri Kelli and bassist Stefan Adika joined. Their album, produced by Jim Mitchell (Ugly Kid Joe) and Mark Schulman (Simple Minds), with additional production by Alex Woltman and friend Gilby Clarke, was released on Wax-Tone Records; the album went out of print but was later re-released in 2000 from Robinson Records.

In 1999, Roxie formed GlamNation under the alias Peter Kensington; the band was a glam-rock cover band that played covers of early glam bands such as The Sweet, David Bowie, Queen, T.Rex and Gary Glitter. The band played a number of shows in L.A. in 1999 and had a regular spot at The Gig (Club American Style) and a show in Scandinavia in 2000. The band at various times consisted of the following musicians playing under their GlamNation Aliases, Ryan Roxie ("Peter Kensington), guitars; Eric Singer ("Doyle Harris"), drums and vocals; Eric Dover ("J.C. Jackson"), vocals and guitars; Stefan Adika ("Yashiya"), bass; Derek Sherinian ("Ricky Lemons"), keyboards. In 2000 Teddy Andreadis ("Dr. Midnight") replaced Derek Sherinian on keyboards. In 2000 Roxie recorded his first studio album with Alice Cooper, Brutal Planet, and except for Stefan Adika the other members of GlamNation played in the band Alice Cooper used on the Brutal Planet Tour. Later without Teddy Andreadis, Roxie and GlamNation went on to co-write and record the 2003 Alice Cooper release The Eyes of Alice Cooper .

2000–2009: Alice Cooper, Roxie77 & Happypill

Through 2000 to 2005 Roxie collaborated with Cooper on several albums including Dragontown , The Eyes of Alice Cooper and Dirty Diamonds , co-writing a number of songs on the latter two albums.

2002 Roxie formed Roxie 77 and wrote a song whose influences lie somewhere in between the Beatles and the Beastie Boys. Roxie 77's 11-song debut album, Peace, Love & Armageddon, was released under the small indie Wax-Tone Records label in 2004. The songs span from acting like a punk kid to facing the reality of actually having a kid. Roxie 77's second album Two Sides to Every Story, was released in July of 2009. The band added a downloadable song every week, with 24 songs in all (each song in a full band and acoustic version).

On July 7, 2005, Roxie aired the first Roxie 77 podcastRoxie's Big Rock Show. There were seven Podcasts in total which featured interviews with long-time friend Stefan Adika, as well as Calico Cooper, Damon Johnson, Eric Singer, Alice Cooper and Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen and Bun E. Carlos. The podcast also featured Roxie's favourite songs, some rare tracks and two unreleased Roxie tracks including "Consequence Of The City" with ex-Alice Cooper band member and friend Eric Dover on vocals.

October 2006 saw Roxie hosting his own radio show on Rocket 95.3 FM (The Rock Home of Stockholm) The show ran weekly and featured a variety of music. The website featured live streaming, an online chat and webcam of Roxie in the studio during broadcasts.

In March 2012 it was announced [4] that Ryan Roxie was rejoining the Alice Cooper band for the forthcoming 2012 tour, joining Tommy Henriksen and Orianthi on guitar, Chuck Garric on bass and Glen Sobel on drums.

In 2014, Roxie 77 released a six-song EP, The Ameriswede. The record was rather a unique release, with one "American side", mixed by Tommy Henriksen, and one "Swedish side", mixed by Jon Bordon with a more garage-indie sound.

Late in 2017, while on the road with Alice Cooper, Roxie released a new solo single, a cover of The Move's "California Man" featuring guest vocals from Robin Zander of Cheap Trick (who had covered the same song on their Heaven Tonight record).

Roxie continued touring with Alice Cooper though 2018, and also released two new solo singles the first "Over & Done" in March followed by "To Live and Die in L.A." in May.

Roxie participated in TEDxStockholm Wonderland [5] in 2019; Ryan was praised for his entertaining segment (particularly as it was on short notice with very little preparation). He played a number of songs and spoke in between; he went on to state that his success was based on the ‘’three P’s practice": Practice, Persistence and Patience, work towards a goal and it will happen. Ironically after seeing his first TEDTalk some years before, it had become a goal of Ryan's to one day deliver a TEDTalk himself...

[6] The idea was a success with viewers able to ask Ryan questions live via Facebook or Instagram through the duration of the stream.

Alice Cooper is an American singer, songwriter, and actor whose career spans over 50 years. With a raspy voice and a stage show that features numerous props, including pyrotechnics, guillotines, electric chairs, fake blood, reptiles, baby dolls, and dueling swords, Cooper is considered by music journalists and peers to be "The Godfather of Shock Rock". He has drawn equally from horror films, vaudeville, and garage rock to pioneer a macabre and theatrical brand of rock designed to shock audiences.

Slashs Snakepit

Slash's Snakepit was an American rock supergroup from Los Angeles, California, formed by Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash in 1994. Though often described as a solo or side project, Slash stated that Snakepit was a band with equal contributions by all members. The first lineup of the band consisted of Slash, two of his Guns N' Roses bandmates— drummer Matt Sorum and guitarist Gilby Clarke— as well as Alice in Chains bassist Mike Inez and former Jellyfish live guitarist Eric Dover on lead vocals.

<i>Welcome to My Nightmare</i> 1975 studio album by Alice Cooper

Welcome to My Nightmare is an album by Alice Cooper, released in March 1975. It is Alice Cooper's first solo album, and his only album for the Atlantic Records label. Welcome to My Nightmare is a concept album. Played in sequence, the songs form a journey through the nightmares of a child named Steven. The album inspired the Alice Cooper: The Nightmare TV special, a worldwide concert tour in 1975, and the Welcome to My Nightmare concert film in 1976. The ensuing tour was one of the most over-the-top excursions of that era. Most of Lou Reed’s band joined Cooper for this record.

<i>The Eyes of Alice Cooper</i> 2003 studio album by Alice Cooper

The Eyes of Alice Cooper, released in 2003, is the sixteenth solo album by Alice Cooper. With this album, Cooper returned to his earlier hard rock sound, in the vein of The Last Temptation, and left the heavy industrial metal sound found in his last two studio albums. Of note is the album cover, which was released in four different versions, featuring alternate colours in Cooper's eyes and the crescent around the 'A' in the title. It was available in blue, green, purple and red.

<i>Pretties for You</i> 1969 studio album by Alice Cooper

Pretties for You is the debut studio album by American rock band Alice Cooper, released on June 25, 1969 by Straight Records. At this time, the name "Alice Cooper" referred to the band and not its lead singer Vincent Furnier. The album has a psychedelic flavor to it; the group had yet to develop the more concise hard rock sound that they would become famous for. Most of the tracks feature unusual time signatures and arrangements, jarring syncopation, expressive dynamics, sound effects, and an eclectic range of music influences. A few songs, such as "Levity Ball", show the influence of Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, with whom the band hung out during the British group's U.S. tour. Alice Cooper guitarist Glen Buxton stated he could listen to Barrett's guitar playing for hours on end.

<i>Easy Action</i> 1970 studio album by Alice Cooper

As with Pretties for You, the band's debut from the previous year, Easy Action was neither a commercial nor critical success. Singles include "Shoe Salesman" and "Return of the Spiders".

<i>A Fistful of Alice</i> 1997 live album by Alice Cooper

A Fistful of Alice is a live album by Alice Cooper. It was released in 1997, and was recorded the previous year at Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo club in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Also featured in the album are Rob Zombie on vocals and Sammy Hagar on guitar. The only song from the show that has not been commercially released is the title track from 1991's Hey Stoopid.
