Co-founder of Supertramp Roger Hodgson contributed to the success of his band with numerous songs which became great hits around the World...
The songs Roger Hodgson sings, that are often referred to as Supertramp songs, are songs that Roger wrote and composed alone...
When Roger Hodgson left Supertramp in 1983, he and Rick Davies agreed that the band would not play Roger.s songs. Their agreement was for Supertramp to become a vehicle for Rick.s music and Roger would go forward with his future solo career secured by his songs and his voice... "Breakfast in America" is one of Roger Hodgson's songs....

Enjoy the lovely bass line of Dougglas "Dougie" Thompson...

See more of my tabs and rate... Thanks
