Roger Hodgson

Best known for his stint fronting art pop hitmakers Supertramp, Roger Hodgson was born in Portsmouth, England, on March 21, 1950. While growing up in Oxford, Hodgson started playing guitar before he was a teenager, and was soon writing songs while at boarding school. He began recording during the late '60s, issuing a single in 1969 as part of the session band Argosy with Elton John (then known as Reg Dwight).

Also in 1969, he co-founded Supertramp, serving with Rick Davies as songwriter and vocalist for 14 years. Originally funded by Dutch millionaire Stanley August Mieseages, the group lost his patronage after their first two albums failed to generate much interest. However, 1974's Crime of the Century was a major hit, launching the radio favorites "Dreamer" and "Bloody Well Right." After scoring an international hit in 1977 with "Give a Little Bit" from the album Even in the Quietest Moments..., Supertramp reached their commercial peak with 1979's chart-topping Breakfast in America, which yielded the smashes "Take the Long Way Home," "The Logical Song," and "Goodbye, Stranger" on its way to selling 20 million copies.

In the wake of 1982's ...Famous Last Words..., Hodgson left Supertramp and relocated to Northern California to focus on his family, eventually issuing his solo debut, In the Eye of the Storm, in 1984. Within days of issuing the follow-up, 1987's Hai Hai, Hodgson fell and broke both of his wrists; the accident kept him out of action for several years, and he did not resurface until he co-wrote several songs on Yes' 1994 album, Talk. A live solo album, Rites of Passage, followed three years later and featured Hodgson collaborating with son Andrew.

Open the Door, his first new studio effort in 13 years, appeared in the spring of 2000. The album received positive responses from critics and fans alike, and Hodgson was subsequently recruited to tour with Ringo Starr as a member of the All-Starr Band. He continued to play solo shows as well, releasing a DVD of one such performance, Take the Long Way Home: Live in Montreal, in summer 2006. (The DVD would go multi-platinum in Canada and gold in France and Germany.) Classics Live, a collection of tracks from a solo tour of the United States, Australia, New Zealand, South America, Europe, and Canada, arrived in 2010. Hodgson continued to tour worldwide in many formats including in a duo, with a band, and with a symphony orchestra. In 2012, he received a Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters from the French Ministry of Culture. ~ Jason Ankeny & Andrew Leahey, Rovi

Roger was super tramp & now he's one of the best solo if not the best around love this song.
Got to see Roger solo for the second time now and loved it as much as seeing Supertramp again! Roger IS Supertramp and his concerts are fantastic! Yep, I must like him....it wasn't that long ago that I posted here before about him! Someone in the audience had even taken the band out for a day on the water around Seattle. Very nice gesture! The band seems to really like playing at the Snoqualmie Casino outside of Seattle.We got to show him the love!!!!
Roger IS Jesus
I just saw Roger H. at the O.C. Fair, small venue, and he was absolutely remarkable. The sound he creates with his incredible band, especially the sax & clarinet player, sound like you were in the recording studio mixing the sound with them. Fantastic concert... If you ever have the chance to see him live, don't miss the opportunity, you will be amazed!!
Easily still one of my favorites!! Saw him in a casino near Seattle last year and was thrilled to see he's going to be there again this year. One day off from last year's concert. AWESOME!!!!

The word artist in the dictionary should be defined as Roger Hodgson. The man is brilliant. He paints musical tapestries that are layered and beautiful.

RH is a genius. I've been listening to his music for over 30 years and all his songs remain fresh and beautiful.
Great talent!!! Supertramp is one of my favorites !! Thank you
I have been a fan since the beginning. I love his sound!
I saw a video on youtube of him singing "Give a Little Bit" he was fantastic, and all his back up was him playing his guitar. Sounded full and rich.
A talent beyond words. What a performer.
Love you Roger!
He steals the words from my mouth.
