Todd Rundgren - White Knight album review
Mainstream scene too dull? Rundgren (and son) to the rescue!
Todd Rundgren is one of the most determinedly eclectic – not to say eccentric – musicians of our times. He can write and record the perfect pop song (shimmering 1972 smash I Saw The Light); produce a billion-selling album (Meat Loaf’s enduringly monstrous Bat Out Of Hell); singlehandedly invent the sci-fi-prog genre (remember his intergalactic supergroup, Utopia?); hell, he even composed the music for TV series Pee Wee’s Playhouse. All accomplished with the ease of Lionel Richie singing Easy while reclining in an easy chair.
