Paris, France ~ September 24, 2010

it must have been in the mid-nineties, during a Night of the Proms in Antwerp, that I heard the first chords of "Dreamer", and then that brilliant top-voice of yours. Goosebumps and a "whaw!" feeling, and a hunger to explore these fantastic Supertramp-songs (that were made mostly before or just after I was born). The more I explored them, the more I appreciated these songs and lyrics, and especially the ones with you singing the lead. Many years later, watching an interview with you, I knew there was still another reason why I've always loved these pearls: they are written by a man with such a good soul and a positive message, and they come straight from the heart, not as products or chart opportunities, but as "gifts" for all us seekers and dreamers. At that moment, I knew I had to attend a concert of yours. And that was Friday night's concert in Paris. It was astonishing, uplifting, moving,... and I discovered lots of other great pearls. Thanks a lot for this precious memory: you and Aaron are fantastic musicians (what a multi-instrumentalist Aaron is!) and humble yet superb people. Continue this way, it's just great! Greetings from Brussels
Today, I read some messages about you on the guestbook and I have the same opinion than your fans all over the world. I think that you are feeling joy when you sing your songs and you makes happy a lot of people come to hear your beautiful songs who speak about love, life, death, happiness and friendly. We need to live every day with joy and having a work who please us. You help us by your songs and lyrics to find a way to better live and going to see you on concert is wonderful, you send your beautiful smile to everyone. I also waiting your CD live and some new songs for the next year. I hope see you in France on 2011. Kisses and much love for you. Sandrine, a french fan.
I saw Roger last year in Paris, and it was wonderful. He sang his songs with pleasure and sharing with his french fan his joy to singing his songs with smiling and kindness. I want to thank him because he sang the songs "Know who you are" and "c'est le bon", I love them very much. He spoke about history of every songs in french and he speak very good the french language. You can see him on concert, you never be disappointed. His voice is always beautiful and he sing his songs writing by himself from Supertramp and his solo songs very well accompany a beautiful lights and a very good sound and without forget Aaron Mc Donald who are a fantastic musician playing a lot of instruments. I hope see him soon in France impatiently to hear his beautiful songs. With my love.
