After kicking around with some Philly bands in the late ’60s, Todd Rundgren broke through to the mainstream in 1972 with ‘Something/Anything.’ For the rest of the decade, he was one of music’s most restless artists, releasing solo records as well as albums with prog-influenced Utopia. He also produced a wide variety of artists over the years, including Meat Loaf, the New York Dolls, the Band, Badfinger, XTC and Hall & Oates. Songs like ‘Hello It’s Me,’ ‘I Saw the Light’ and ‘Can We Still Be Friends’ kept him in the Top 40.

More recently, Rundgren has played with Ringo Starr’s All-Starr Bands and fronted the New Cars, a new-millennium spin-off the ’70s and ’80s hitmakers.
