Tim Rogers

Tim Rogers, born Timothy Adrian Rogers on 20 September 1969 is an Australian musician, actor and writer, best known as the frontman of Australian rock band You Am I. Tim Rogers has also recorded solo albums with backing bands. As of July 2013, Rogers has released 12 albums with You Am I and five solo albums.

Tim Rogers is best known as the guitarist, singer and primary songwriter of the Australian rock band You Am I, who were the poster boys of alternative rock within Australia during the ’90s, though largely unknown overseas. The elegantly wasted Rogers also became known for his roguishly charming persona and rock star antics to rival Ryan Adams both on and off the stage.

Tim Rogers was born in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, in 1968, although he moved several times in his youth. His older brother had a collection of imported American records, which Rogers would break into his room to listen to while he was out. The first lineup of You Am I consisted of Rogers, his brother Jaimmeand a school friend of theirs.

While living in the city of Canberra and studying law and arts, Tim Rogers met Andy Kent, who became You Am I’s sound mixer. After a fight between the Rogers brothers, the lineup changed completely and Kent was invited to play bass. You Am I went on to win many Australian fans in the ’90s, releasing three albums in a row, all of which debuted at number one. Rogers is said to keep all of their trophies in his outdoor toilet.
