Roger Hodgson (Supertramp lead singer & songwriter) wrote this hit when he was still in his teens, before he even met Rick and co-founded Supertramp. This classic is just as relevant today as it was when it was released. Roger won the Ivor Novello Award from The British Academy of Composers and Songwriters for The Logical Song being named the best song both musically and lyrically. It also has the distinction of becoming one of the most quoted lyrics in schools.
It is Roger's instantly recognizable voice you are hearing when you listen to the greatest hits he recorded with Supertramp - Give a Little Bit, Dreamer, Take the Long Way Home, Breakfast in America, School, It's Raining Again, Fool's Overture and a great number of other enduring classics. Although Roger and Supertramp's other cofounder shared writing credit, they actually composed and wrote separately, with Roger's songs being the ones he sang lead vocals on, and Rick's songs with his own vocals.
Even though Supertramp is not touring Roger's World Tour is getting rave reviews and there are still some shows this year to catch. Roger performs his songs in a variety of formats so you can see him at an acoustic show, band show or orchestra. I love them all.

Here's what people say about his concerts:
"His voice is still in great shape, and I'd even say that his performance has gotten even better with the years. Always smiling, he looks like he's gotten to a point in his life where he's enjoying and living the moment."
"... what a magical show, Roger put Heart, Soul, and Voice into the word Musicianship. His performance left me stunned...gave me shivers and put tears in my eyes..."
Take a look at what fans are saying about "The Logical Song":
"Until recently, I didn't even know who Roger Hodgson was. I had heard of SuperTramp, but even though I was familiar with some of his songs, I did not know him by name. I really like The Logical Song. I feel a kinship with him spiritually and I am listening to more of his music than I even knew existed before now. I have my favorites, but Roger is a truly talented musician. I just wish I would have known about him and his music before now. Best wishes Roger. Proud to be a fan. Keep up the good work. I guess it's a case of "better late than never" for me."
