Gepubliceerd op 22 dec. 2010
Roger's lyrics and composition of his song, Hide in Your Shell, cannot help but touch people on so many levels. Roger sings with such emotion and openness of his heart that it is obvious his songs come from deep within him. It is not uncommon to see audience members in tears because of how deeply they are touched. Don't miss the opportunity to see Roger live in concert. Roger, co-founder of Supertramp, is currently on tour, performing a variety of shows with full band, acoustic, and with orchestras around the world.
"People often write to me and say that this song in particular strikes a chord in them. Maybe it's because I was going through a difficult time in my life when I wrote it that people are able to relate to it. Our teenage years seem to be difficult ones for many of us, especially if one is sensitive. I know there is a tendency to want to Hide in Your Shell." ~ Roger Hodgson
Roger not only wrote & composed Hide in Your Shell, he also gave us the great majority of the hits to include Breakfast in America, The Logical Song, Dreamer, Give a Little Bit, Take the Long Way Home, It's Raining Again, School, Fool's Overture & many more. Although Roger and Supertramp's other co-founder shared writing credit, they actually wrote & composed separately with each singing their own respective songs. http://bit.ly/1Kfgu0W

"I went to my first concert at the age of 44 to see your show. I was so amazed by the experience. I have to say you sound like you did when I was 15 buying your albums. I had goose bumps most of the night. I think you actually care about your guests and we all felt so welcome my friend. Thanks for an experience that will stay with me for the rest of my days."
"I was a typical teenager being pulled in a hundred different directions. Some of them frightening and lonely. Hide in Your Shell spoke directly to my heart. It told me I wasn't alone and that any good that would come of my life would be a direct result of me summoning up my courage and living true to the values and principals I felt. "I, as a boy, I believed the saying the cure for pain was love. How would it be if you could see the world through my eyes?" struck me as Shakespeare. 30+ years down the road now. Words to a boy are now a creed for a man."
