HAPPY BIRTHDAY Roger Hodgson (Supertramp)

Roger Hodgson is an English musician, singer, and songwriter, best known as the former co-frontman of the progressive rock band, Supertramp.

Some of the bands’ most popular songs (often written by Hodgson) include “Give a Little Bit”, “Dreamer”, “Take the Long Way Home”, and today’s song choice. In 1983, he left Supertramp to focus on his solo career.

On this very day, March 21st 1950, Roger Hodgson was born in Portsmouth, Hampshire, England (the son of Jill and Charles Hodgson). In celebration of his birthday, exactly 74 years ago today, I’ve chosen a song that is based on his experience of being sent away to boarding school.
