Roy Loney

Jason Gross, Perfect Sound Forever, April 2005

Funny story... Though I had spoken to Flamin' Groovies founder in 1998, I held the article all this time hoping to speak to Cyril A. Jordan, who went on to lead the band throughout its life afterwards. Turns out it wasn't that easy — CAJ is not someone who readily does interviews. Thinking that it was wrong to deprive the online world from Mr. Loney's thoughts, it was time to finally share this one, especially as the latest breed of garage revivalists owe a lot to Roy and friends. Roy was wonderful to speak to and definitely deserves the props. For more information about his recording career and what he's been doing since, see the website decidated to his recording career at And so without further adieu...
