Roger Troutman
On Stage & Off

One Nation Remembers Roger
A young fan named Jason Lobel had the opportunity to get to know the late, great Roger Troutman over the course of the past 7 years. During that time, Roger extended the love to Jason that he extended to many of his fans, a trait not found too often in many popular entertainers. Here we remember Roger, on stage and off, through photographs taken by Jason from 1993-1999. We'd like to thank Jason for sharing the moments he spent with Roger and the band with us.
