American musician (vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, saxophone, theremin), singer-songwriter and record producer.

Born June 22, 1948 in Upper Darby, a suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Todd Rundgren began his career in blues band Woody’s Truck Stop but left to form Nazz in 1967 who charted with “Open My Eyes” and “Hello It’s Me.” He left Nazz in 1969 to pursue a solo career and released Runt (1970), Runt: The Ballad of Todd Rundgren (1971) and double LP Something/Anything? (1972) on which he singly wrote, performed and produced 3 of the 4 sides of the album, the 4th side being a single live take with a studio band.

Rundgren also took on production projects for other groups at Bearsville Studios whilst his musical boundaries stretched from Pop to Heavy Metal to Soul as demonstrated by ‘A Wizard, A True Star’ (1973), followed by another double album 1974’s Todd and 1975’s Initiation. At this time he also started to release progressive and experimental live and studio material with his backing band Utopia.

Rundgren continued to produce solo material, notably Faithful (1976) featuring one side of originals and one side of covers from 1966, Hermit of Mink Hollow (1978), Healing (1981), The Ever Popular Tortured Artist Effect (1983) and the aptly named A Cappella (1985). Utopia disbanded in 1986 having released a string of live and studio albums under the Todd Rundgren/Utopia banner all of which featured Rundgren’s seemingly inexhaustible songwriting, vocal and performance contributions.

After a break he released the live studio album Nearly Human (1989) followed by 2nd Wind (1991) performed before a live audience who were instructed to remain silent. In 1993 Rundgren reinvented himself again on the Internet as TR-i (“Todd Rundgren interactive”) and “released” New World Order followed by The Individualist (1995). His Patronet work, which trickled out to subscribers over more than a year, was released in 2000 as One Long Year.

Rundgren returned to recording under his own name for With a Twist, an album of bossa-nova covers of his older material. Also released were Reconstructed which features techno remixes of Rundgren and Utopia tracks by other artists and Todd Rundgren and His Friends which contains various artists remakes and remixes Rundgren songs.

In 2004, Rundgren released Liars and in 2005, following considerable rumour and speculation it was announced that he was joining the line-up of 80’s rock band The Cars, now renamed as The New Cars. A live album The New Cars: It’s Alive, was released in 2006.

Rundgren and long term partner Bebe Buell raised actress Liv Tyler as his daughter until age 11 due to the drug excesses of her biological father, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith.

    Really? Oh My Gosh!!

    I have been a fan of Todd Rundgren since the early 70’s as I was entering my teen years.

    I would most seriously love to win tickets to see him perform live.

    I am a big Todd Rundgren fan, but my brother is the *hugest* Rundgren fan. He’s been living abroad in Sweden for the past few years & is coming to visit me in PDX this Memorial Day weekend. I can hardly imagine how thrilled & shocked he would be to be able to see TR! Please consider me.

    He is always an awesome show. Love his group work as well as his solo work.
    Tickets please!

    Just saw this. I’ve been hoping to see him for so long.

    Please? And thanks for the chance.

    It would be a dream to see Todd Rundgren! I love the song “Cry Baby” by his band Utopia who are amazing live! Would love to have an opportunity to see him solo.

    Because Todd the Bod is the man!!..and I am not wanting to miss this show because I couldn’t afford it …and he’s another creative who made me feel like I wasn’t alone in not ever remembering my dreams!

    Would be stellar to see Todd @ such an excellent venue! C’mon ticket karma!!

    I adore Todd Rundgren! “Hello, It’s Me” used to be my jam back in my early 20s. Unfortunately, that was only a little over a decade ago, and my friend’s/peers gave me so much crap for my love of Todd. It would be AWESOME to belt out Rundgren tunes with fellow Rundgren fans… without any fear of judgement. I also returned to college recently, and now, I’m a poor college student in my thirties. Free is just about all I can afford.

    I LOVE Todd Rundgren. What a dream it would be to see him live!

    I saw Todd almost thirty years ago in Osaka, Japan when he was doing the Nearly Human tour. I was so excited to see him then. It would mean so much to me to see him again in America. I will turn 60 this year.
