Former Supertramp Hodgson Always a Superstar
In 1987, internationally famous singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Roger Hodgson fell down and shattered the bones in both his wrists. Doctors told him he would never play again. But Roger Hodgson’s unwavering faith, optimism and healing physical therapy shattered the physician’s prognosis, instead. That’s the kind of person he is. Roger Hodgson isn’t your everyday music star who goes on stage to just play and receive applause. He has such a strong inner connection with that place deep inside where songs are created. Eighteen months after his accident, Hodgson was playing his music with even more passion than before. One of his biggest fans was Princess Diana who brought up her sons humming some of his time-tested classics. The young royalty never forgot. Princes William and Harry asked Roger to perform at the Concert for Diana, in front of 65,000 people and broadcast to over 140 countries around the world. For direction in life, he simply states his compass is his spirituality that affects the way he sees life and music. I had the honor of chatting with this superstar on WBSM, who keeps it simple and in the present moment. He told me what keeps him moving forward is his ability to give his music to us as a service for the world to enjoy. In his incredible journey, Roger likes to lift people up, give us hope and bring back good memories. His hugely successful Breakfast in America Tour stops in New Bedford, MA, at the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center, Sunday night, October 20, 2013 at 8 pm. Roger will sing all of our favorite songs, Dreamer, Give A Little Bit, Logical Song, Take The Long Way Home, Breakfast in America, School, It’s Raining Again, Hide in Your Shell…and more. And it will be one of the highest honors of my lifetime to personally introduce the iconic legend, Roger Hodgson!
