Li'l Elroy started banging on the ivories when he was 6. The neighborhood kids weren't too nice about his love for the keys telling him: "Sissy-boy plays the piano!". It didn't take long for him to pick up the guitar after that. In a band since he was 12 - his love of the steel strings has never faltered. Then a producer gave him a steady studio job - until the day he met a legend in the flesh - he learned the chops from this idol of a by-gone era and soon he was handed his trademark massive golden belt buckle. From that day on his motto has been: "Heavy Metal, Punk, Polka? It's all rock 'n' roll to Elroy baby." -- Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock in-game bio
