This is Supertramp performing without Roger Hodgson. Roger was the other cofounder of Supertramp and the composer of "The Logical Song". When Roger was with Supertramp he and Rick wrote separately and the songs they each sung on the albums and in concert were their own songs.

You may not know but "Supertramp" is a brand name that is trademarked by Rick Davies and his wife. The band Supertamp did not write songs together. Roger had written many of the songs he recorded with Supertramp before the band was formed. And 8 out of the 10 of the top Supertramp hits were written and composed by Roger Hodgson. He would make a demo and take the song to the band to learn. So even though many are referred to as Supertramp songs they are Roger Hodgson Songs. And to many of us the heart, soul and voice of Supertramp is Roger.

The Band Supertramp was very different after Roger left over 30 years ago . Rick is retired and his band "Supertramp" is not touring. Good news for Supertramp and Roger Hodgson fas is that Roger is in the midst of his World Tour which is selling out and has great reviews so go the official Roger Hodgson website to get the latest concert information, pictures, news and more at http://www.rogerhodgson.com/home.html

To me there is nothing that can compare to hearing The Logical Song and so many other of my favorite hits like Give a Little Bit, Dreamer, Take the Long Way Home from the original artist, singer, song writer himself Roger Hodgson. There is a deep passion and connection to these songs that Roger shares with his audience. I always feel touched by his music. I have witnessed this with other artists too like John Fogerty from Credence Clearwater Revival. The bands Supertramp and Credence Clearwater Revisited just don't sound like the real deal and I would like to hear others thoughts on this. Please post your comments on this video.

Fan Quote:

"There's definitely no contest. Hodgson radiates far more love for the music and joy of performing than does his "replacement", if I may use that word very loosely. That's the mark of a real entertainer. I haven't even been into Supertramp that long so it's not as if I'm a fanboy or anything, but it doesn't take a fanboy to tell that one performer knows how to breathe life into every note while the other is just giving a rushed, rote performance of a song he doesn't really "feel" anything for."
