Roadhouse was a British rock band that once included former Def Leppard members guitarist Pete Willis and drummer Frank Noon. According to the band's website, the band recorded a 4 song demo with Noon as their drummer. However, Noon was no longer in Roadhouse by the time of the recording of their debut album. Roadhouse released their self-titled album in August 1991. The album is often referred to as On A Desert Road, a reference to a line in the song "Time". Several singles were released from the album, with b-sides that are not on the album. The band toured in support of Ian Gillan/No Sweat/Saxon/Two Tribes and recorded four videos for MTV. The single "Hell Can Wait" reached number 9 in the UK Rock Chart.

Roadhouse fell apart soon after the release of the debut album. Jackson was initially offered the position as the replacement for Noddy Holder in Slade, but after rehearsing with them for a few months, he had to leave the band due to bereavements in his family. He formed Smith & Jackson with Jimmy Smith in 1997 and, while based in Phoenix, Arizona, United States, employed the former Kiss producer/associate Sean Delaney as their manager. The band toured with Lynyrd Skynyrd/Blackhawk/Toby Keith/Keith Urban on The Country Thunder Tour. Following Delaney's death in 2003, Smith & Jackson released their debut album, Rivertown, on RGF Records (RGF/SJCD 057) in 2004. He is currently recording his first solo album in the United Kingdom and Nashville, Tennessee, United States, with his manager Bill Aucoin, and song writing with Kostas.
Willis remains around the Sheffield area, whilst Brewis is working as a teacher and playing drums for The Caffreyes. Grant has worked with Simply Red.
