To this day, many of Roger's songs are often referred to as Supertramp songs, though Roger wrote and composed alone. In fact, many of Roger's songs he wrote before he co-founded Supertramp and many of them have become the soundtrack of our lives. The songs Roger sings lead vocals on are the ones he composed the music and lyrics for, and the songs Rick sings lead vocals on are the ones that he wrote.

Here are some messages Roger has received from fans all over the world ~
"I was a huge Supertramp fan growing up in the 70's and your songs certainly had an impact on my life. I know now that after hearing you perform these songs now that I am hearing them the way they were meant to be heard...and...after all these years they are even more meaningful and relevant than when I was growing up. Thank you Roger for your gift of music and love."
"What a wonderful experience last night; a great sense of shared warmth; for music that has been held for years inside individuals as their own, melded with their personal memories and feelings, that suddenly not only belongs to others gathered around too, but suddenly seems to belong to one man yet even more powerfully and deeply. Of course! It's the performer; the very creator and artist himself; it's HIS music, and he's playing it just a few yards away...Fantastic. Thank you."
"No other performer who comes even close in connecting with and pleasing the audience like he does. I have seen him several times and was truly amazed at the number of people who travelled long distances just for the shows."
