He joins the Academy alongside Patron for Industry, respected music executive Nigel Elderton, and Patron for Education, the esteemed Lord Lingfield.
Roger said: "I am delighted and honoured to be a patron of the Academy of Contemporary Music. Amazing places like this didn't exist when we were learning to be a group.
"I can't imagine the impact it would have had: I guess we would have been a whole lot better. I wish all students at least some of the luck, life and career that I have had!"
Julia Leggett, Executive Director at ACM, added: "Roger embodies everything about ACM, from his passion for performing, to the talent and hard graft on which he has built his astonishing career."
