    Back In The Day

    I always have found it interesting even with the 'new' Supertramp today, that they found a way to incorporate John Helliwell into the writing and lyrics...his contribution over the years, goes for the most part, unrecognised. Yet when you listen to the songs he figures in so...

    It was Dreamer the single off of Crime of the Century. I bought the album and loved it. The solo cry of the harmonica at the start of School and how that track built and the lyrics that I so related to. Then Bloody Well Right, Hide In Your Shell, Asylum... just loved it...

    Growing Up With the Tramp

    Supertramp was my first favourite band. I went over to England to see them in Liverpool and Hyde Park, London for their 'One More For The Road' Tour, and again at the Beacon Theatre in Manhattan.   Since then, I have become much more educated about their music beyond being...

    Goodbye Stranger.

    "It's been nice. Hope you find your paradise. Tried to see your point of view. Hope your dreams will all come true. Goodbye Mary. Goodbye Jane. Will we ever meet again? Feel no sorrow. Feel no shame. Come tomorrow, feel no pain."
