Roy Z

Roy Z

Real/full name:
Roy Ramirez
47 (born Feb 1968)
Place of origin:
United States (Los Angeles, CA)


Roy Ramirez adopted the stage name Roy Zerimar (Ramirez spelled backwards) when his career was beginning in the 80s because "ethnic" names were not in fashion at the time. It was eventually shortened to simply Roy Z. He got involved with Bruce Dickinson after the latter left Iron Maiden when he and other members of his band, Tribe of Gypsies, were hired by the singer as his backing group.
