Something/Everything

I've been a fan of Todd Rundgren's since I first heard that 3 minute piece of pop brilliance "I Saw The Light." I've been loyal from the early prog-rock days right on through his (misguided?) forays into Bossa Nova and Rap. (ouch) If he produced it, I bought it. "12 Rods" anybody?

With a new CD just weeks away, I'm starting to get Todd fever. I found this piece, which is running in the new issue of "Uncut Magazine" extremely interesting. It says alot about the wizard, the true star, his influences and how he came to record "The Ikon," "The Verb To Love" and "Wolfman Jack" all within 3 years of each other.

Thanks for the clip. Uncut doesn't have it posted online, I assume? I'm horribly deficient in Rundgren -- I blame him for being wildly prolific.
