From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Rodney Bingenheimer, born December 15, 1947, is a radio disc jockey on the long-running Los Angeles rock station KROQ who is notable for helping numerous iconic bands become successful in the American market. His contribution to the music business has been described as important. He developed a reputation for being the first American deejay to identify new artists and play "edgy new bands" such as Blondie, the Ramones, the Sex Pistols, Duran Duran, The Cure, Joan Jett, No Doubt, Blur, Nirvana, Sonic Youth, The Bangles, X, Coldplay and many others. He managed a key but now-defunct L.A. nightclub called English Disco in the early seventies.He was the subject of a documentary by late filmmaker George Hickenlooper entitled Mayor of the Sunset Strip which told the story of a groupie-turned-kingmaker with a knack for making friends in the music industry. He was described as a "famous groupie, now respectable" by Mick Jagger and he has numerous high-profile friends. In 2007, he was honored with the 2,330th star on Hollywood Boulevard.
