Roger Voudouris Gets Used To It


John Roger Voudouris (December 29, 1954 – August 3, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter/guitarist best known for his 1979 hit, “Get Used To It”.

His first solo album was the self-titled Roger Voudouris released in 1978 which received little interest from radio. However, Voudouris’ second album Radio Dream contained the pop hit “Get Used To It” peaking at #21 on the Billboard Hot 100. Radio Dream was followed a year later with A Guy Like Me and the 1981 album On The Heels Of Love.

After the decline of his solo career he returned to writing music and lyrics for various projects including the movie The Lonely Lady and a documentary for Elvis Presley.

Voudouris died in 2003 after suffering from liver disease for some time. He was survived by three children from his first marriage, his former wife, and his then-wife, Jennifer (from whom he was separated).
