Todd Rundgren

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. But he’s never stayed in one place too long, dabbling in electronic music, pop, R&B, blues and New Wave. 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.
