Radio Time interview with David Wild
Roger Hodgson is recognized as one of the most gifted composers, songwriters and lyricists of our time! Roger gave us amazingly enduring songs like: Give a Little Bit, Dreamer, It's Raining Again, Take the Long Way Home, The Logical Song, Breakfast In America, Fools Overture and so many others that have become the sound track of our lives.

Roger began writing songs at the age of 12 and performed his first concert of original songs at the age of 13. He later recorded some of his songs with Supertramp and many of them have become the soundtrack of our lives. Although Roger and Supertramp’s other co-founder, Rick Davies, shared writing credit, they actually wrote and composed separately with each singing their own songs. Every song Roger performs in concert was written and composed by him.
Roger is currently touring around the world in a variety of formats from unplugged to band and orchestra. For the latest Tour schedule, tickets and info go to: http://www.RogerHodgson.com or http://www.facebook.com/RogerHodgsonOfficial Remember to like the page to get the latest happenings
“For most of my life, I've loudly and proudly identified myself as a Supertramp fan. All these years I thought I was a Supertramp fan only to discover that I am, in fact, first and foremost, a Roger Hodgson fan. The second Roger Hodgson opened his voice, I said ‘that’s Supertramp.’ He is Supertramp. His is the voice that spoke to me as a young man, and speaks to me even more powerfully all these years later. What a show! WOW is all I can say.” David Wild, Contributing editor, Rolling Stone
See what fans are saying -
"It may have been the BEST concert I have ever seen. Roger's voice is even better than it was when he was with Supertramp. My friends and I were blown away by your sheer talent. I would highly recommend anyone to go see Roger live if they can."
"Your music and more importantly, your enthusiasm for expressing your music to the audience is inspiring ! I felt that you sang each and every song with a passion ... not just a empty or bland repetition of sameness ! Thank for a wonderful evening !"
