Roger : Supertramp 1974 memory
Hello sir , I’m much honored to be able to write to you directly through the email I found on your website. I would be much more honored if you’d be kind to allow me some of your time to read this little story and maybe have a word about it :-)
My name is Roger , I was born in 1962 . I have a dear memory about Supertramp but it happened some 57 years ago that I would like to know if it’s real or if I’m “nothing but a dreamer “ :-) Here is the story : France , back in 1974/1975 : I lived in the tiny port of Le Croisic (44490) . It’s located along the coast, in the west part of France ( near the Brittany region ) . Le Croisic was , and still is , a tiny city with a population of around 4000 people . One day , my brother (aged 14 then ) dragged me to our local cinema named «Le Hublot « because , he said, a movie was to be played , a movie about an English band ! Two members of the band would be present and would discuss with the public ! Needless to say we were not many people into this small cinema . The band name was Supertramp , the movie featured their last album «Crime of The Century«. I was 12 . This afternoon stayed in my mind forever . I remember the movie with the famous album cover . I remember that , after the movie , there was a little chat with some members of the band . My brother , confident with his English even asked a question !! So brave ! :-) . I can even remember the the place and the color of the seats … I just fell in love with the music .
There was no record shop where we lived , it took some time before I was able to buy “ Crime Of The century” . But I did about a month later and I still remember where I bought it .

Gustav Schoenberg III: An Autographed pair of sticks
Hi could I buy an autographed pair of your sticks and have you add Supertramp to both . I would like a signed photo to go with that. I'm a 72 year old retired drummer who started a collection of my favorite drummers. Hope to hear back Thank you Gus

Fabian: Thanks for the Music
I hope you are doing well. I have been a Supertramp Fan all my life and had the pleasure to meet you in person, and your son back in 99, after your gig in Zurich, Switzerland - you and the band stayed at the Hotel where I was the Manager. We had a couple drinks at the Hotelbar that night - long time ago, I know. (I remember stories about Bora-Bora and that you had some arguments within the band). Anyway, thanks for this preciouse memory and all the great music. Best, Fabian

Kathryn: Your Name Change
Hello fellow former Glendale resident . I am also from Glendale (born and raised).
My question is: Why did you change your name from Bob Seinbenberg to Bob C. Benberg. I recall reading, years ago, that it was because in England Seinbenberg was not a well like name or something to that affect.
While living in Glendale, do you recall a bakery on Glendale Blvd. and Los Feliz called Knudsen's Bakery? Just curious.
Have a wonderful day.

Gerald Kellermann: Drums and more
first of all, great to see your website is active and you stay in contact with the community. Althoug I am quite young (23), I grew up listening to Supertramp's music and have been always amazed by the creativity of the music and even more by your drumming - which influences my playing.
I am wondering if the hardcopies of your solo albums you are selling on your website are also the remastered versions from 2021?
Thank you in advance.
