Cette page rapporte le chat du Dimanche 8 Novembre 1998, dans lequel Walter Russo est venu avec un invité de prestige: ROGER HODGSON LUI-MÊME! Alors en tournée au Brésil, il nous a accordé une heure de son temps précieux pour répondre à nos questions. Quel moment... inoubliable!
Ce log du chat est en version anglaise originale. Log certifié par l'op du chat, Sylvain, et par moi-même, tous deux présents lors de ce chat (d'ailleurs vous m'y verrez!).

<Trond> Say Goodbye is the most charming/lovely song I’ve ever heard.....
<Trond> Will you put it on your next album??
<Pomfret> I have thought about the double CD

<Pomfret> "Say goodbye" will be on the album

City... despite me chosing the longest road! :o)
<Jorge> from Yosemite... :o)
<Jorge> A question.... could you tell us something more concrete about the
record companies you're in touch with?
<Pomfret> Soon

<Pomfret> My love to Peggy
<Jorge> I also think a double CD will be a great solution
<Jorge> Sylvain.... YOUR TURN MY FRIEND!
<Sylvain> Roger, your electric guitar playing is great and yet it's obcured
a lot by your accoustic and keyboard playing... do you play electric at
home? do you miss it? can we expect some on your next albums?
<Jorge> (and then Walter perhaps... ) :o)
<Sylvain> oh yes!
<Pomfret> The bigger my band becomes then it allows me to play more
electric guitar
<Sylvain> ok... Roger how do you feel about this chat?
<Sylvain> want to go for another round?
<Pomfret> I'm enjoying it.
<Sylvain> oh and I was forgetting... Walter's with you and can ask you all
he wants but maybe he'd like to ask something on the chat... Walter?
<Jorge> Roger... Sarah is not here becuase she is on holydays I think... we
are missing her here... she was about to go to Brazil to see you!

ever play there can yo "GO" for a week-end gig.  And also er, can you tell
me what "Rosie" is about.
<Aine> Angel Hair is in none of my gardening books.  My fav song so please
<Pomfret> Maybe I can come to Ireland to play. I woud like that.

mine,as B-sides for future singles?Or,what about a limited release for the
fans in Internet?
<Pomfret> The line 'acting upon information received' came to me and I had
to build a song around that
<Jorge> Roger... got Andrea's question?

<guille> I had the chance to hear the original ROP sessions in Santa cruz
and I enjoyed a hard version of "london" and a fantastic version of
"dessert love"....why have you left out these songs from hai hai in your
latest shows? are you not satisfied with these songs? another question
would be "what do you expect from the next world tour: promote your music
in front of 15.000 fans or be so close to 300 fans per show like this last
<Sylvain>  you know Guille I think... :o)
<Jorge> wow!!
