Todd Rundgren

A Tribute to Todd Rundgren, Gary Backstrom’s Road to Utopia, comes to the Regent Theatre,  7 Medford Street, Arlington, MA on Friday, June 7, at 8 pm. Tickets here.

Todd Rundgren

Considered by many to be the “Ultimate Rock Cult Hero” Todd Rundgren has maintained a legion of fans through four decades.  Todd’s searing guitar work reached a nationwide audience in his role as lead guitarist for the blues-psychedelic band Nazz. He wrote and arranged almost all of the work that went into the three albums the group produced.

His first big solo success was in 1971 with “We Gotta Get You a Woman” and in 1973 from the double album “Something/Anything?”  He scored big on the charts with “I Saw the Light” and a revision of a Nazz song, “Hello, It’s Me.”

Rundgren has scored huge as a music producer, most notably on Meat Loaf’s “Bat Out of Hell” opus. In the late 1970s and through the 1980s Todd formed the group Utopia, each member an accomplished musician and vocalist. He has also been called on by films and TV for his musical scores and sometimes tours with Ringo Starr as a member of his All-Star Band.
