TriviaWon the 1979 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the play "Buried Child" and was nominated for the 1983 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the play "True West" and the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the play "Fool for Love". Suffers from fear of flying. Was the drummer for late 1960s bands "Lothar and the Hand People" and "The Holy Modal Rounders" per a short interview in the August, 1970 issue of Playboy (the former confirmed by the interviewer, who was at the Astor Place Theater in NYC to see a twin-bill of the then-26-year-old Shepard's plays, "The Unseen Hand" and "Forensic and the Navigators") and encountered Shepard drumming away in the lobby with Lothar et al. Currently lives with Jessica Lange and their children outside of Stillwater, Minnesota.  Born in Illinois and grew up in California. Collaborated with Bob Dylan in writing the song "Brownsville Girl," which appeared on Dylan's 1986 album "Knocked Out Loaded." The eleven-minute song is considered by many to be a bright spot in what was otherwise a creative drought for Dylan from the late seventies to the early nineties. Son of Jane Elaine Rogers (b. 1917) and Samuel Shepard (died in 1984), both teachers. Lived in England between 1971 and 1973. Was a member of the rock band Holy Modal Rounders (1968-1971). Worked in a ranch in Chino between 1958 and 1960. His sister Roxanne Rogers, a stage director, graduated in 1978 from Antioch. Ex-brother-in-law of Robert Englund.
