Roger Hodgson, co-founder of Supertramp, wrote and composed this classic, The Logical Song, which is just as relevant today as it was when it was released. Probably most of us, if not all of us, can relate to the lyrics in one way or another. Questioning - wondering who we are. Great News! Roger is on tour all over the globe - tour dates below. Don't miss out on seeing the singer/songwriter who gave us the greatest hits we love - Dreamer, Breakfast in America, Give a Little Bit, Take the Long Way Home, It's Raining Again, School, Fool's Overture, Hide in Your Shell & many more. Roger performs in a variety of formats with band, with symphony orchestra & solo. http://www.rogerhodgson.com or http://www.facebook.com/rogerhodgson

"The Logical Song was born from my questions about what really matters in life. Throughout childhood we are taught all these ways to be and yet we are rarely told anything about our true self. We are taught how to function outwardly, but not guided to who we are inwardly. We go from the innocence and wonder of childhood to the confusion of adolescence that often ends in the cynicism and disillusionment of adulthood. In The Logical Song, the burning question that came down to its rawest place was "please tell me who I am," and that's basically what the song is about. I think this eternal question continues to hit such a deep chord in people around the world and why it stays so meaningful." ~Roger Hodgson

The Logical Song can be found on Roger's Classics Live album & Take the Long Way Home DVD. Signed albums, DVD & more http://www.RogerHodgsonStore.com iTunes http://apple.co/1M5cA8j

Although Roger and Supertramp's other co-founder shared writing credit, they actually wrote and composed separately with each singing their own respective songs. http://bit.ly/1Kfgu0W

"Never has a performer been so engaging as you were with the audience. Having heard the Logical Song at least 1000 times since its release, I can honestly say that only on Friday after your heartfelt intro to the song did I actually "hear" the lyrics. You're a wonderfully inspiring, deeply spiritual person. I hope you continue to spread your uplifting, much needed positive energy, which this world desperately needs."

"What a fantastic night! What warmth from Roger to the audience and the audience to Roger. What a feel-good night. I turned to look at the faces in the circle and above and EVERYONES faces were alight with enjoyment. Absolutely brilliant."
