Roberts is notable for his
Rambo-like physique [ [http://www.kaneroberts.com/ok.html Kane Roberts - Images ] ] and his usage of an electric guitarshaped like a machine gun.
Roberts was the guitarist who played on Alice Cooper's Constrictor and
Raise Your Fist and Yelland their respective tours. He is the man responsible for Alice's metal years in the late '80s as he co-wrote nearly every track from those albums. Just by being on stage, he was a part of the show with his huge physique and rocket shooting guitars.
After "Raise Your Fist", Kane released his first solo album, "Kane Roberts", which featured Alice lyrics on 'Full Pull'. He then guested on Trash , playing guitar on "Bed Of Nails". He then released a second solo album Saints and Sinners.
While he is primarily a guitar player, Roberts is also a vocalist, with incredible range,Fact|date=March 2008 as is evident on his solo projects.
Saints and Sinners| contained
Bon Jovi-penned "Does Anybody Really Fall In Love Anymore?", previously recorded by Cheras well.
He also played on the
Bob Ezrinproduced Count Three And Prayalbum by Berlin, and a Rod Stewartalbum. He helped on backing vocals on Steve Vai's " Sex & Religion"album. He also co-wrote "Take It Off" With Paul Stanleyand Bob Ezrinwhich appeared on Kiss' Revenge Album.
He contributed to albums by
Status Quo(Quo), Steve Vai(Sex & Religion) and Desmond Child(Discipline).
Roberts took a long hiatus from music after his second solo album, but returned in 1999 with a band called Phoenix Down, named for a life potion in the
PlayStation video game Final Fantasy VII, one of Roberts' favorite games. Phoenix Down recorded only one album, entitled "Under A Wild Sky". Fans of both say that much of the record is inspired by the game.

graphic artsand as a video gameprogrammer, Roberts began work on a new album, "Touched", in 2006. According to his website [http://www.kaneroberts.com kaneroberts.com] it is not yet available.
