Glasgow, Scotland ~ May 30, 2013 ~ Reflection by Fraser MacDonald 

I've been to many music concerts; some are fun, some are flat, but none have been as moving as Roger Hodgson's 30 May concert in Glasgow. As the legendary voice of Supertramp, one could be forgiven for expecting a punchy concert of the hits and a few solo songs - but this was not all that happened. Yes, Roger played the huge hits he penned as a young man as well as his solo numbers, but his delivery ensured this wasn't a typical 'greatest hits' concert. 

Sung with such passion and love, hits like Give A Little Bit, The Logical Song, Dreamer, It's Raining Again and  Breakfast in America were brought to new life, sounding as I have never heard them before without losing their original character. Each was outstanding, but Roger's true musical genius came through to me during the somewhat lesser known numbers. Lord, Is It Mine?, Hide In Your Shell, Two Of Us were all favourites from the concert; each one sung with such truth it was very much a spiritual experience. Roger's voice effortlessly soared between notes with neither room nor cause for error.

     From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
This applies to Roger's songs and this is every meeting with him.
I am happy you could have experience it.
I think, when Roger should stand on the stage without any technique or even without any instrument, he would filled whole space by power of his personality, by his inimitable voice and charisma of his heart which is full of love.
