Supertramp: Rick Davies Explains Reunion Decision
Supertramp co-founder Rick Davies has explained why the band are re-forming without Roger Hodgson.
Says Davies in a statement on the band’s official website:
“In June of 2008 Rick Davies went to meet with Roger Hodgson to discuss the possibility of a reunion with him. After 15 months of discussions, last fall Rick and Roger did not come to an agreement as was hoped. Roger decided to continue his solo career as he has since leaving Supertramp 27 years ago.
“After a bit of soul-searching and much encouragement and support from Supertramp’s longstanding promoters, Rick decided to put the band back on the road.
“The 70-10 Tour is a celebration of 40 years of Supertramp, which Rick started in 1970, but it is not a reunion with Roger Hodgson. We wish Roger well and look forward to playing for you this fall.
“We sincerely hope this puts an end to the confusion that has been circulating on the internet and in the press.”
