From Roger on Facebook: "I have been in Los Angeles for the past four weeks working on several projects, probably the most important of which is coming very close to an end. I have about three more pieces to write and then we are done. There will be a press conference in early April where all will be revealed!"
Roger will be playing piano at Adam Donen's album launch for 'False Bay Echoes' in London on April 4th. Get tickets here.
From Adam on Facebook: "Roger's contributions on piano and Rhodes are among the highlights of False Bay Echoes. As you'll hear, after a few Jacks, he becomes a mighty fine blues pianist."
between his work for *that other band*, we're currently working on a
couple of new works - a ballet of Roger's for which for which I'm
contributing the libretto, and a new orchestral piece.
difficult to work with at the best of times, and have never had a
collaborator like Roger, and suspect I never will. A completely opposite
and therefore like mind, and a melodic genius.
Its an honour to have my dear friend joining me on piano."
Adam also says they'll be bringing the Bernhard Suite to London in June, and hints at the possibility of a show in Berlin as well. (Thanks Roger O'Donnell Discography)

between my solo work which you will read about HERE and my work with
The Cure which you will read about THERE www.thecure.com"
