Hi Todd/Utopia folks, 
           These upcoming  gigs are with the little heard from legend -  
Buzzy Linhart - one  of the great singer/songwriter/performers of the 60's and the 
70's. He's  sounding better than ever in his first East Coast gigs in four 
years. It's going  to be some great gigs  - so please come down.   
         By the way, Todd  co-produced one of Buzzy's albums (the black 
album) way back when. When Kevin  Ellman and John Seigler joined Utopia, they had 
to quit the Buzzy Linhart band  first. And Buzzy and I wrote "You gotta have 
Friends" together. 
       I organized a Buzzy Linhart  Celebration concert at the Bottom Line 
four years ago. Singing and performing  for/with Buzzy were Phoebe Snow, John 
Sebastion, John Hammond, Eric Anderson,  David Amram, Will Lee (from Letterman) 
and many other show biz greats. Buzzy is  a legend, even among the music 
industry itself. 
Don't miss this.

Buzzy Linhart is a rock legend. And during the early  70's he was the Easty 
Coast's hottest rock and roller, selling out at clubs and  concert halls up and 
down the coast. Buzzy's high energy two hour shows made him  the Bruce 
Springsteen of his day. 
Buzzy co-wrote "You Gotta  Have Friends" with his frequent piano player, 
Moogy Klingman.  
Buzzy started out as a  vibes player in Greenwich Village back at the dawn of 
the 60's, he played behind  Tim Hardin and Fred Neil and recorded as a vibist 
with Jimi Hendrix and Crosby,  Stills and Nash. He made about six albums (not 
including countless greatest hits  and repackages of all sorts) for various 
major labels in the late sixties and  early seventies including Atlantic, 
Mercury and Karma Sutra. Buzzy was a  singing, songwriting, guitar playing solo 
artist and a legendary live performer.  He even filled Carnegie Hall at the 
height of Buzzymania! Having his songs  covered by Bette Midler, Barry Manilow and 
Carly Simon, among others, his rep as  a songwriter has always been a great 
one.   Buzzy's unique combination  of jazz, folk and rock made him an innovator 
and influence on many who came  after him. His singing could go from rock to 
blues to jazz scat in any 24 bars  of a song! His songs were covered by people 
like Bette Midler, Barry Manilow,  Carly Simon, and the Roche  Sisters
Buzzy sightings  became legendary over the years. There would be many NYC 
sightings,  when Buzzy would show up at my house and music would be made and 
songs would be  written. Sometimes, we'd write songs and play gigs with bands. 
Sometimes, we'd  do  radio shows.                                                 
Buzzy's last appearance in NYC  four years ago, was his  biggest - a big show at 
the Bottom line four years ago that was a tribute to him  with his sidekick, 
Moogy Klingman and an array of famous names. - Phoebe Snow,  John Hammond, John 
Sebastion, Eric Anderson, David Amram and Will Lee,  among  others.

Bros & Gov't Mule. Moogy has worked with great  female rockers like Bette Midler,

Moogy wrote like  "Dust in the Wind" which Todd Rundgren recorded on his 
platinum album  "Something, Anything" and Axel Rose & Guns &  Roses does live  in
