Dougie Thomson


He anchored Supertramp during their most commercially successful run which commenced in 1975 – and departed the band permanently in 1988 when the lads took time off to pursue other projects.


A member of the London jazz-blues ensemble The Alan Bown Set, bassist Dougie Thomson was the consummate song player, plying melodic extensions, unison lines, and pocket grooves for his prolific composer bandmates Rodger Hodgson and Rick Davies.  Retiring from the stage, Thomson went to work in the music publishing and management business with Trinity.
