Lee Bogan spent his youngest years in a small area in South Carolina called West Springs. His family was poor but just thought the world was that way. However in 1964 the family, with a whopping 3 channels on their TV watched a show called The Ed Sullivan show. That night changed Lee's life forever. Four guys with more hair than he's ever seen, playing guitars and singing. Also He heard a shrieking sound which turned out to be screaming teenage girls. His mother remembered him saying "That's a good job". Lee's first instrument was the family broom as he would pretend to be a BEATLE. He finally got his hands on a real guitar and was off and running. A cousin showed him his first few chords but after that he would start teaching himself different songs. Going forward Lee would play in local bands whenever and wherever anyone would have them. One of the local bands he was part of went on to win local, state and national battle of the bands. After years in clubs and bars Lee had certainly paid a tremendous amount of dues. In 1990 on his birthday Lee auditioned for an up and coming country artist by the name of Joe Diffie. he was hired on the spot. Joe recorded several songs co-written with Lee. One being the top 5 hit Honky Tonk Attitude which reached gold and platinum status. Lee has played and sang background vocals with such artists as Ronnie McDowell, Aaron Tippin, Dr Hook, Billy Joe Royal, Percy Sledge, Keith Burns of the group Trick Pony, Michael Twitty and others. He also sang background vocals on Joe Diffies albums. Lee and Joe did all the backgrounds on Joes LIFE'S SO FUNNY album. Lee also did backgrounds on Aaron Tippins last album. Lee is a BMI award winning songwriter, a singer, a studio owner (Skidrow Studio) and a multi instrumentalist. The forementioned song has been played on the radio over 3 million times.
