Hey... Roger had such GORGEOUS EYES!!!
Why did he always cover them up with sunglasses? Even indoors... I understand having them on outdoors, but why during recordings and what not?? And pardon the pun but... did he wear his sunglasses at night???
What was he hiding???

He did this just to look more hot, I guess...:)

Althoug I agree it wasn't always working since some of his sunglasses were horrible (like the ones he wore on One Vision video...lol)


yes it was plain to see, yes it was meant to be...

Yeah well I agree his eyes were absolutely gorgeous and that it was a shame that he tried to hide them behind hideous sunglasses :).

What was that interview you were talking about, where his eyes looked beautiful ??? Cause there are a lot of them...:)

Roger always had bad eyesight (until I think he had laser eye surgery a few years ago), and wearing sunglasses was way more rock n' roll than regular glasses!

You can see roger wearing normal glasses in the making of the days of our lives in 1991. It's on the intro of the box of flix videos. Flix 2

Here are the few having to do with his eyesight.

Roger recently had corrective surgery on his eyes due to being nearsighted.


Roger wore his shades all the time because they were prescription for his eyesight.

Thanks for all of that! Yea i assumed because it is said that people with blue eyes have more sensitive eyes to light for long periods of time and what not. So it does make perfect sense, not that he didnt look good with em on tho, cuz he did!

And yea i loved the ones he had at wembley too!

Umm the shot was like literally i think 5 secs long where his eyes look really intense blue before they cut away to a different shot, i think its either in the MAGIC interviews or the WORKS interviews i believe. Ill have to watch it later and repost to confirm cuz i havent watched it in a few weeks... too much homework!

I have found the "interview" and i would like to recant that, it was not in an interview or even in the MAGIC or WORKS sections for that matter.
Its in the MAKING OF THE MIRACLE VIDEOS section, right after the end of the making of I WANT IT ALL when he says PINEWOOD STUDIOS 35th video, its a really short second, but tell me thats not an awesome shot!

Haha, yeah, those are not good... I think he even commented on them himself if you look at One Vision with Roger-Brian-comments. He says something like "I'm not sure about those glasses, though..." Haha... Must check out that interview...

I love when his wearing sunglasses, because when I see his eyes... I get blind with that intensive blue....

By the way, I love his eyes in the Wembley concert, in the song: So squared (or something like that) or Mary Lou... he looks a little bit tired, but sexy :) .... and what about in the interview of Hot Space tour 82... GGGuuuuuaaaaaaauuuuuu!!!!

yeah,i think you're not the only one person to ask that.I never understand it too,but you know...sometimes people with light colour eyes have problems with the lights,and i think that's the reason why roger wear his sunglasses even on stage.i think it coz i have light colour(sorry i don't know if it's the right term coz i'm italian)eyes and i have this kind of problem.
