Roger Hodgson – Voice of Supertramp

Roger Hodgson – Voice of Supertramp
Event on 2013-06-25 19:00:00
Roger Hodgson is recognized as one of the most gifted composers, songwriters and lyricists of our time! As the legendary voice, writer and arranger of most of Supertramp’s greatest hits that led to more than 60 million record sales … , he gave us amazingly enduring songs like: “Give a Little Bit … ,” “Dreamer,” “It’s Raining Again,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “The Logical Song,” “Breakfast In America,” “Fool’s Overture” and so many others that have become the sound track of our lives.

Hodgson co-founded the progressive rock band Supertramp in 1969 and was with them for 14 years. He wrote and sang most of the classic hits that brought Supertramp worldwide acclaim. Roger recently received 2 awards from ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers) for his songs being in the top played songs in their repertory, proving that they have indeed stood the test of time.

“The highest compliment that Roger can be paid is that he probably sounds better live today than in the recording studio more than a generation ago.” – Evening Standard London, Review from The Royal Albert Hall Concert.

“There are few vocalists instantly recognizable from the first few bars of a song but Roger Hodgson is certainly one of that unique group. The singer/songwriter of Supertramp, his voice is as unmistakable as the distinct keyboard sound of his early hits.” – The Times- London, Review from The Royal Albert Hall Concert.

Formed in 2009 on Oahu, Hawaii, The Green "fuses late 1970s-era dub-heavy roots reggae with strands of contemporary rock/pop/R&B and sporadic indigenous Hawaiian musical and lyrical references" (Billboard). Shortly after the release of their debut album (2010), The Green began a heavy touring cycle, including runs with Rebelution and SOJA, Vans Warped Tour, and internationally in Japan, New Zealand, and Guam. In fall 2012 after the release of the #1 Billboard Reggae Album Ways & Means, the sextet completed their first headlining U.S. tour, including multiple sold out dates. This spring The Green embarks on the Take Me On Tour, debuting songs from their third album, slated for release on Easy Star Records later this summer. The Green’s first two albums combined have sold 50,000 copies worldwide.

YouTube is helping criminals to Steal from Users and Bands

YouTube is helping criminals to Steal from Users and Bands

Free picture about the best American YouTube company that is helping digital criminals to steal rights and content from international users. This crime scene image was created for you by the creator of the disputed video of This screen-shot can be used for free, if you link as the original author of the image.

The disputed video was here:

The video is now deleted, because YouTube threatened to delete the account. ONE public concert video can be a valid reason to delete your account with all of your videos. YouTube is great !

The video was recorded in Germany, by a German user, during a public concert of The Cinematics band from Scotland, in 2009. It was published soon after the concert. YouTube changed the publishing date to March 7, 2012 and claimed that it belongs to Reservoir Media now. They change facts and copy rights at random. There is no way to legally win this for them. Judges and lawyers will rub their hands with greed, becasue they get paid anyway.

The band was signed to TVT Records in 2005, after playing at the gig in Manchester. In July 2011, the band had split up before completing their third album, which remains unreleased, but the band did make one track available for free on their Facebook page.

Youtube is helping to steal the rights from the broken-up band and from the users of Youtube, who uploaded concert videos to the Internet.

Reservoir Media is an American company and was founded in 2007. Reservoir Media aggressively pursues new marketing opportunities and revenue streams. In 2010, Reservoir Media Management acquired 100% of the assets of the band, "The Cinematics", which had formerly been administered by TVT Music Enterprises LLC.

YouTube is helping Reservoir Media to steal privately recorded videos from users who went to public concerts and uploaded their videos to YouTube. German law is protecting the authors, who create content from public events. It is not applicable that the US law is used on German users.

USA is the greatest country for stealing legally. YouTube should be aware of the fiscal debt in Europe. The European governments are hungry for money. They will very likely extract millions from YouTube, if they continue to provide assistance to the violation of the European law.

As it is now, it would be illegal, if the band themselves would upload their own music videos to YouTube.

UK should protect British bands that are exploited by US companies and left with no rights. This great band would be still playing concerts and make a decent living, if they had the rights to play their own music in public. is personally OK. The issue here is that the legal mess in the US is hurting the music, the musicians, the fans, the customers and the freedom to share our memories and experiences on the Internet.

The Cinematics band was hurt the most. You can hear an interview from one of the band members after the band gave up. He is too polite for what had happened:

I just discovered this dashboard of my neglected YouTube channel.

So, if I am reading this right, most of my viewed have been by middle-aged men, and the most popular topics are rockets, electric cars and dolphins. The rocket videos command the most attention, and the dolphins the least.

The U.S. and Canadian viewership is not so surprising, but Russia is interesting, and on the detailed maps below, I seem to be playing well in Texas, South Korea, Estonia and the U.A.E.
