Roger Hodgson, co-founder of Supertramp, is the singer/songwriter of this exquisite opus, Fool's Overture. Roger, one of the greatest writers and composers of our time, originally had three separate pieces of music that one day magically came together and became this treasure. GREAT NEWS! Roger is on Tour, selling out shows all over the globe - tour dates below or visit http://www.RogerHodgson.com or http://www.facebook.com/RogerHodgson.

"Fool's Overture is one of my favorite pieces that I've ever written. It was very magical the way it came together. It was actually three separate pieces of music that I had for a few years and then, one day, they kind of all slotted together in what I think is a magnificent, kind of epic piece of music. I always imagined performing it with an orchestra, so when I did start playing with orchestras back in the '90s, it was such a thrill to play this song. I still get goosebumps to this day every time I play it with an orchestra." ~ Roger Hodgson

Roger gave us the great majority of Supertramp's hits to include Dreamer, The Logical Song, Give a Little Bit, Breakfast in America, School, Hide in Your Shell, It's Raining Again, Take the Long Way Home, and many more. Although Roger & Supertramp's other co-founder shared writing credit, they actually wrote & composed separately with each singing their own songs. http://bit.ly/1Kfgu0W

Share your experience of Roger's shows or what his songs mean to you. Roger enjoys hearing from you!

Some messages Roger has received from fans all over the world~

"It may have been the BEST concert I have ever seen. Roger's voice is even better than it was when he was with Supertramp. My friends and I were blown away by your sheer talent. I would highly recommend anyone to go see Roger live if they can."

"Your music and more importantly, your enthusiasm for expressing your music to the audience is inspiring ! I felt that you sang each and every song with a passion.. not just a empty or bland repetition of sameness ! Thank for a wonderful evening !"

"You are not only an accomplished, professional gifted musical genius, but a truly heart-warming and graceful person (and comical too because you had the audience laughing both nights). You really do have an amazing connection with the audience, and as a performer you raise the bar higher that only a handful can come close to reaching..."
Performance from Night of the Proms 2004.
