Roger Hodgson – “Breakfast in América”
Por Denise Nolasco

O lendário Roger Hodgson, ex. vocalista da banda inglesa Supertramp, esteve novamente em Belo Horizonte e arrebatou a multidão que lotou o BH Hall para reverenciar mais uma vez suas belas canções, num espetáculo que já deixou saudades!

Com a turnê intitulada “Breakfast in América”, Hodgson levou o público ao delírio com as canções: “Dreamer”, “Fool’s Overture,” “Give a Little Bit,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “The Logical Song,” “Breakfast in América,” “School,” e “It’s Raining Again”.

Dono de uma voz marcante, Roger Hodgson exaltou a receptividade em terras mineiras, dizendo ter um carinho todo especial pelos belorizontinos, onde já teve a oportunidade de se apresentar outras vezes.

Em entrevista recente ao G1 – o portal de notícias da Globo, Hodgson disse o quanto é importante levar a música ao coração das pessoas e ressaltou: “Você pode imaginar como é especial para mim olhar para fora e ver as pessoas rindo , chorando e cantando “Give a Little Bit”, “Breakfast in América”, “Dreamer”, ou” It’s Raining Again”, e tocar essas músicas e fazer lembrá-los de tantas coisas em suas vidas. Talvez quando a vida era um pouco mais fácil. É por isso que é a minha alegria tocar as canções que as pessoas querem ouvir, canções que se tornaram clássicos”, frisou.

The legendary Roger Hodgson, ex. Vocalist of the English band Supertramp, was again in Belo Horizonte and snatched the crowd that filled BH Hall to once again revere their beautiful songs, in a spectacle that already missed!

With the tour titled “Breakfast in America,” Hodgson led audiences to delirium with the songs “Dreamer,” “Fool’s Overture,” “Give a Little Bit,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “The Logical Song, “Breakfast in America,” “School,” and “It’s Raining Again”.

Owner of a remarkable voice, Roger Hodgson exalted the receptivity in Minas lands, saying to have a special affection for the belorizontinos, where he already had the opportunity to present himself other times.

In a recent interview with G1 – the Globo news portal, Hodgson said how important it is to bring music to people’s hearts and stressed, “You can imagine how special it is for me to look outside and see people laughing, crying and singing “Give a Little Bit,” “Breakfast in America,” “Dreamer,” or “It’s Raining Again,” and play those songs and remind them of so many things in their lives. Maybe when life was a little easier. That’s why it’s my joy to play the songs that people want to hear, songs that have become classics, “he said.

Enjoy Roger's new interview with Argentina's Télam Agencia Nacional de Noticias for his March 11 and 12 Buenos Aires shows. For the original article in Spanish, click here. Approximate English translation below:
 

Roger Hodgson: "I hope my show is an escape from problems for two hours"



Former again on Saturday and Sunday in Argentina when he will offer two shows at the Teatro Gran Rex, located in Corrientes 857, in this city, where he will review classics from his old band, some compositions Of his solo stage and "two or three surprises that people have never heard".

"I know that music can be a wonderful medicine, an escape from problems for two hours, so I hope I can achieve that for some people. We live in troubled times because of the things that are happening, so the music can be a real help, "mused the musician, in dialogue with Télam.

Enthusiastic about this new visit to the country, a custom that opened in 1998 and became a constant in recent years, Hodgson said that the local public "won my heart from the first time I was in Buenos Aires."

"I love the people of Argentina. It is a very special place, so I am happy to return. They are very enthusiastic. In my previous shows, I saw people laughing, I saw people crying. They love to sing. They are very emotional, "said the artist, who spared no praise when referring to his local supporters.

In this occasion, the English musician will be accompanied by Aaron MacDonald, o n sax; Kevin Adamson, on keyboards; Bryan Head, on drums; and David Carpenter, on bass.

Born in 1950 in Portsmouth, England, Hodgson formed Supertramp in 1969, along with Rick Davis, after having gone through several teenage groups, among them Argosy, who enrolled a young Elton John on the piano.

Until his departure in 1983, with the popular band recorded five studio albums ("Crime of the century", "Crisis? What crisis ?," "Even in the quietest moment", "Breakfast in America" and "Famous last words" ) And a live one ("Paris"), with classics like "Dreamer", "Give a little bit", "Take the long way home", "School" and "It's raining again", among others, that can be listened to The next weekend at the shows of the Gran Rex.

With "In the Eye of the Storm", Hodgson opened his solo career in a work where he performed all the instruments and recorded popular songs like "In jeopardy", "Had a dream" and "Lovers in the wind".

A hard injury to his wrist in the mid-1980s seemed to put an end to his musical career, however, against all odds, the musician recovered and went ahead with a career in which he decided to prioritize the tours over the Launch of new discs.

Days before his arrival in the country, former Supertramp spoke with this agency of his former band, the different stages of his career, the things that inspire him and his days as a member of the group that accompanies former beatle Ringo Starr, among other things.

Télam: How will the shows be presented in this opportunity in Argentina?
Roger Hodgson:
I will be playing several songs that I wrote throughout my life, including some Supertramp that people want to hear, some of my solo stage and two or three surprises that people have never heard of.

T: His solo debut ("In the Eye of the Storm", 1984) did not have a commercial success in other countries, but in Argentina several of those songs became classics. What do you attribute it to?
RH:
RH: I really do not know. Sometimes it's marketing. Sometimes the record company does a good job. I'm surprised, but it makes me very happy that you tell me that because I'm going to play songs from that album precisely. I will play "In Jeopardy", "Lovers in the wind" and "Had a dream", probably.

T: Why do you think Supertramp's songs are still valid despite being composed around 40 years ago?
RH:
I do not think it's a question of age. I think a song becomes classic because the composer manages to touch an intimate fiber in people. So, they are not old songs, they are timeless songs. Many songs I made are cool. Letters are, in many cases, more relevant today than when I composed them, for example "A little bit", because it is a time when we need to take care of ourselves. I love to sing it and people do the same.

T: Your lyrics were always very spiritual. What things inspire you at the moment to compose?
RH:
The same old things still inspire me. I try to be a good man, give my heart. I spent my life spinning with my music because I think it's my way of giving my heart. I always believed in serving and music is a service. I am pleased with what I do because I serve life, God, people, through hope; Carrying music that touches their hearts, and makes them feel better and hold their spirit high. I try to be a voice to people.

T: In his song "Death and a zoo" talks about the right of the animals. Are you particularly interested in this topic?
RH:
We should all be concerned not only about the rights of animals, but about everything that happens on the planet. But, yes, it is not a much talked about subject in the media, but I feel that I am not alone. I love animals, I love nature and deeply wound my heart to see so many unnecessary abuses, cruelty and even killings of whole species. I hope we can all awaken and react in time to save what is a disaster, not only for animals, but also for all of humanity.

T: Your last studio album dates back to 2000. Why did not you record again?
RH: We live in different times. It's a different era and it's very difficult to find three or four months to be in a studio to make a record. There are other priorities for me right now, like playing in different countries and offering people a two-hour trip, where maybe you can give them more than with a new album.

T: In 2001, it was part of the All Starr Band. What do you remember about that experience with Ringo Starr?
RH: It was wonderful. Ringo is a wonderful person. I had wonderful times. I grew up with the Beatles, I was a teenager at the time and it hit me very deeply as a musician and as a man.They inspired me and showed me what was possible with music. It was great to be on tour with a Beatle and hear a lot of stories from his own mouth.

T: After so many years, what do you think of Supertramp?
RH: It was a great band, with great songs written by me and other great songs written by Rick Davis. But many of those great songs were not written in collaboration. The band I'm with can now play those songs in an incredible way. So I am very proud of the band that I will take to Buenos Aires and I am looking forward to seeing us. I know I had to schedule a second show, so that makes me very happy.
