INFO: By the end of high school he was playing keyboards and singing backing vocals in various bands. At this point there would be no turning back from a music career. But, there would be quite a long pause.
Right before he turned 18 the family decided to move back to Israel. Roy came along. That meant a 3-year stint in the Israeli army - mandatory for every resident. New friends and an old walkman got him through that ride and at the end of itRoy, a lover, not a fighter, headed back to Boston to study atBerklee College of Music. To support himself he played in a handful of bands, worked as a bar pianist, waited tables, and did session work for hire.
