Silver Screen Legends: Roy Rogers - 4 DVD SetLeonard Franklin Slye was born November 5, 1911 in Cincinnati, and left for California in 1930. He formed a group in 1934 with Bob Nolan and Tim Spencer called "Sons of the Pioneers," during which he tried Dick Weston as a stage name before settling on Roy Rogers.
