Roger Hodgson of Supertramp – biography and career
The British musician was born Charles Roger Pomfret Hodgson on March 21, 1950 in Portsmouth, Hampshire. As a co-founder and singer of the legendary band Supertramp, he became known to a wider audience during the progressive rock era. In 1983 he left the band and released several solo albums. He regularly tours the world.
Hodgson already gained his first experience in recording studios at the age of 19, as guitarist of the group “People like Us”. However, the single “Duck Pond” with the B-side “Send me no Answers” was never released. After the breakup of the band, Roger Hodgson joined “Argosy”, a flower power pop band, as a singer. In 1969 the band recorded their single “Mr. Boyd”, which was also not to find a successor. Among others, the pianist Reginald Dwight, who later became known as Elton John, was in the studio during the recordings.
In the same year, an ad appeared in Melody Maker, through which Hodgson met the keypoarder Rick Dabies. Both formed the group “Daddy”, which was renamed “Supertramp” a little later. The Dutch millionaire Stanley August Miesegaes financed two albums for the band, which were also unsuccessful. As a session musician, he supported a certain Chick Chjurchill, better known as Ten Years After, on four songs on his album “You and Me” in 1973, together with his bandmate Rick Davies on drums.
Roger Hodgson – Hits and world career
A year later – after Miesegaes had left the project – Supertram achieved their breakthrough on an international level with “Crime of the Century”. Several hit albums followed, including “Breakfast in America.” Nevertheless, Hodgson left the band in 1983 after the release of the album ” … famous last words …”. There followed a long farewell tour and the beginning of his solo career.
After various projects, including with Jon Anderson of Yes, he was a guest musician with the Ringo Starr All-Star Band in 2001. During the concert tour through Canada and the USA, the live album “Ringo and His New All-Starr-Band” was produced and released in 2002. Supertramp classics like “The Logical Song” and “Give a Little Bit” were also part of the program.
His first DVD was recorded in Montreal in 2006 and was initially only available in Canada. After only seven weeks, the work was certified platinum. Due to the great demand and overwhelming response, the worldwide release followed in 2007. In 2010, the DVD reached gold status in Germany.
Roger Hodgson has also been on tour again since 2011. He performed at the “Night of the Proms” for the fourth time in 2017. In the same year he gave a concert in Neumünster on the occasion of the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival. There he also announced the new album “Classics Live 2”.
