From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Roger Hodgson was one of the two lead vocalists of the rock group Supertramp until 1983. He sings all the "high" sounding parts.

After his departure from the group, he released three solo albums and one live album with Supertramp songs and his own material.

His last album to date "Open the Door" is considered by fans to be much more true "Supertramp"-style than Rick Davies' latest, more bluesy "Slow Motion" album, which was published under the Supertramp group name. As a copyright agreement similar to Lennon/McCartney with the Beatles, almost all Supertramp songs were credited to Davies and Hodgson, regardless of who actually wrote the tracks. Rodger Hodgson is the main writer of worldwide known single hits such as "The Logical Song", "Dreamer", "Give a little bit" or "It's raining again". After his departure from Supertramp, he has collaborated with many other well-known artists, such as Ringo Starr and Jon Anderson. Roger is still giving concerts, he has taken part in the Night of the Proms concert series in Belgium and Germany in late 2004 as well as the rock festival Bospop 2005.
