The gospel according to Todd Rundgren
The man who had a public spat with Lennon and made Bowie cry says he’s a hard-worker more than a genius, and that music has been devalued. These things and more shape his world view
A multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, performer, producer, engineer and all-round studio technologist, Todd Rundgren is a music polymath if ever there was one. Over the past 50 years he been wholly or partly responsible for an eclectic range of albums that together have sold millions. From early beginnings with The Nazz to solo records, Utopia and production/engineeing work including the New York Dolls, Grand Funk Railroad, XTC and Meat Loaf’s monumental Bat Out Of Hell, Rundgren has established himself as a true rock great.
