Roger Chapman is perhaps best-known as the frontman of Family, a staple on the touring circuit in the early 1970s and who had several hit singles.  The band eventually split in October 1973 and since then Chappo has followed a successful solo career.  In recent years Family have reunited for gigs whilst Roger Chapman also tours with The Shortlist.

Roger’s latest album ‘Peaceology’ is actually an updated version of his album ‘One More Time For Peace’.  In a recent interview for Get Ready to ROCK! Radio he tells Pete Feenstra about the evolution and expansion of the album with new tracks.
