Roger Hodgson co-founded Supertramp in 1969 and was the driving force behind what fans call the 14 golden years of the band. He wrote, sang, and arranged the enduring rock standards that made Supertramp a worldwide phenomenon with album sales in excess of 60 million. In addition to “Breakfast in America,” Roger also gave us timeless classics such as Give a Little Bit, The Logical Song, Dreamer, Take the Long Way Home, School, It's Raining Again, Fool's Overture, and many more.

“Breakfast in America is consistently one of the most popular songs in the set and it just seems to ignite a wave of joy in the audience when they hear the first chords. I was dreaming and having fun one day and this song just flowed out. I think the lyric was written in about an hour, so I didn't even stop to think what I was writing; it just came out of me. Never could I have imagined when I wrote this song at age 19 that it would be gaining in popularity, if that is even possible, over 40 years later. It's the playful, fun, jubilant quality that people love to hear and sing along to." ~ Roger Hodgson

Roger's Breakfast in America, the title track off the blockbuster album, was ruling the radio airwaves around the world in 1979. "Breakfast in America" is one of the most successful and beloved albums in all of rock history. It went on to sell over 20 million copies and still selling today. The album hit #1 in almost every country around the world and stayed at the top of the charts in many countries for a full year. Roger's other timeless classics from the album include The Logical Song, Take the Long Way Home, Child of Vision and Lord is it Mine. Roger was the band's chief architect and visionary when it came to arranging and producing the albums and designing the stage shows. Although Roger and Supertramp's other co-founder shared writing credit, they actually wrote and composed separately with each singing their own songs: http://bit.ly/1Kfgu0W
