Todd Rundgren brings an unpredictable tour to Hudson Valley, NY
Todd Rundgren will perform in Orange County this summer.
Rock legend Todd Rundgren, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and record producer began his career in the mid-1960s with the debut of his band Nazz (1967). He will leave Nazz and go solo 2 years later. 1972 sees the release of the album Something anything? featuring some of his best known songs, “Hello It’s Me” and “I Saw the Light”. His 1983 single “Bang on the Drum All Day” is another popular favorite. Rundgren also formed the rock band Utopia which was active from 1973 to 1976.
In addition to his greatest success as a producer, 1977 Bat out of hell by Meat Loaf, his other production credits include Badfinger’s Directly (1971), Grand Funk Railroad We are an American band (1973) and the New York Dolls New York Dolls (1973).
Deal with cars
Todd Rundgren actually led the short-lived reunion of The Cars as The New Cars active from 2005 to 2007. The band featured original members Elliot Easton on guitar and Greg Hawkes on keyboards, as well as Rundgren on lead vocals, l Rundgren’s former Utopia bandmate Kasim Sulton on bass and drummer Prairie Prince of The Tubes. The band releases a live album which also contains some new songs. I actually really liked The New Cars and was happy to see them perform live at the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater in Peekskill in 2006.
