ROGER HODGSON of Supertramp
Plaza de Toros, Alicante, August 14th
Roger Hodgson was born in the United Kingdom 64 years ago. A native of Portsmouth, member and leader with Rick Davies of the legendary progressive rock band Supertramp, Roger Hodgson led the band until 1983, being the voice and performer of numerous songs that are now part of the history of world music and the soundtrack of several generations who grew up with their songs. These included The Logical Song, Dreamer, Give A Little Bit, It’s Raining Again and Breakfast in America among many more. He composed and sang many of these songs.
He left Supertramp in 1983 and moved his family away from the Los Angeles music scene to live a simpler lifestyle close to nature and be home with his children as they were growing up. Hodgson returned to touring in 2001. Rolling Stone stated of Hodgson’s tour: “All these years I thought I was a Supertramp fan when actually I was and am a Roger Hodgson fan”. NYS Music elaborated on Hodgson’s songwriting: “For anyone who has listened to Roger’s music, you can tell it’s written from the heart as it touches those that hear it in a way that is personal to them. The lyrics are meaningful, melodies well thought out and it’s composed as a classical piece of music is, with thought and organization.” Now, he is coming to Alicante.
