  • "Through the glitter and the grunge, from The Monkees to Coldplay, Rodney Bingenheimer--a.k.a. Rodney on the ROQ--has reigned over the Los Angeles music scene for over two decades. A constantly evolving fixture as rock fan, journalist, promoter, club owner and radio DJ on KROQ, Bingenheimer has helped advance every adventurous rock mutation--California pop, glam, punk, goth, new wave, alternative--since he first hit the Sunset Strip during its psychedelic 1960s heyday."
  • "When Rodney was a teenager his mother just dropped him off at the home of Connie Stevens and left him. Eventually he landed his first show-business job as a double for Davey Jones on "The Monkees". Rodney ended up using his skills as a consummate hanger-on and his genuine enthusiasm for rock & roll to become a central figure in the L.A. music scene and is lauded for his good taste and good nature. Rodney is perhaps the least-known celebrity in Hollywood, though somehow every celebrity seems to know him."
