As the co-frontman of Supertramp from 1969 to 1983, Hodgson’s songwriting and vocal talents helped the band become a global phenomenon that has sold more than 60 million albums, to date.
The band’s biggest hit was the 1980 release “Breakfast in America,” which topped the charts for a year and featured the Hodgson-penned hits “The Logical Song,” “Take the Long Way Home” and the title track. The album sold more than 4 million copies in the US and has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.
Other hit Supertramp songs written by the British singer/songwriter include “Dreamer,” “Give a Little Bit,” “It’s Raining Again,” and “Take the Long Way Home.”
Since leaving the band, Hodgson has built a successful solo career that included a 2007 performance at the Concert for Diana at Wembley Stadium, where he played some of the late princess’s favorite songs in front of an audience of 65,000.
