Michael J Roy, co-founder of Fox Pass with Jon Macey, started out with the usual unplayable acoustic guitar. Got his first electric, a Harmony Stratotone, at age 14.
Fell in with Jon in high school and Fox Pass was born.
Considered a “feel” player as opposed to a technician, he has lent his playing and songwriting to many situations. Other than Fox Pass, he has recorded and performed with Tom Dickie & the Desires, Prisoners of Beat, Crash Conference (with Lee Crystal and Gary Ryan the rhythm section of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts), Secret Chiefs (with Michael Monroe of Hanoi Rocks) and AJAX to name a few. Influences from ABBA to Zappa. "Music is everything!"
