Todd Rundgren

A Todd Rundgren performance could include just about anything from the multi-instrumentalist's 41-year career: the '60s garage rock of his old band Nazz, his early '70s power pop solo work, his mid-'70s Zappa-esque experimental stage, his '80s New Wave dabbling, his '90s phase of bossa nova, concept albums, and interpretive song snippets, or the "rock" sounds of his latest album, Arena. His set could also include a number of his solo hits from throughout the years, like "We Gotta Get You a Woman" (1970), "I Saw the Light" (1972), or "Hello It's Me" (1973). Of course, he could just "Bang the Drum All Day" and we'd be happy.
