Roger Hodgson, co-founder of Supertramp, discusses the creation process of some of the classics he wrote and composed such as The Awakening, Dreamer, The Logical Song, Take the Long Way Home, Lord is it Mine, Give a Little Bit, and so many more. Many of Roger’s songs that were recorded with Supertramp were written and composed by Roger before he met Rick and formed the band. Roger goes on to explain that his songs were complete before he took them to the band and were therefore not influenced by lyric or composition changes by the band members. Even though Roger and Rick shared writing credit, they each wrote and composed separately.
