In 1969, Roger Hodgson co- founded Supertramp, one of the greatest progressive rock n roll bands ever. He was the voice, heart and soul of the band for 14 years and is regarded as the spiritual and creative force behind Supertramp.
Although Roger shared writer’s credit with Rick Davies, they wrote and composed separately. They continued to share writer’s credits much like Lennon and McCartney did. Roger sings all the songs he wrote and Rick sings the songs he wrote.
During the time that Hodgson led the band, Supertramp sold over 60 million albums. Breakfast in America had sales of well over 20 million copies and in 1979 was the top selling album worldwide.
In Canada alone, sales for Crime of the Century and Breakfast in America reached Diamond status. One in every 15 Canadians owned both these albums.
In 2016, Roger still performs the classic hit songs he gave us – Breakfast in America, The Logical Song, Give a Little Bit, Take the Long Way Home, Dreamer, School, Fool’s Overture, It’s Raining Again, and so many more.
