Todd was superb... his voice in fine form; beautiful...another "religious experience". Todd commenced to finish a song he was unable to in Charleston due to the technical difficulties called "WV Gals". Now, I being from the great state that is ‘wild and wonderful', was taken aback by this. The song was written around 1926-27 and it sheds a negative light on our state of WV, so it gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling when some folks in the balcony booed. But I admit it WAS funny.
Todd played for about two hours with two encores. He played piano, guitar, uke, and taped music. His voice was stunning. His humor was delightful, not really wanting to "get me started" about anything political. The Beatles cover tunes were a nice touch, but his own "Hello it's me" was very special.
After the show, a crowd gathered at the area of which he would be exiting. Freddy and I had our photo made with him for the third time. I brought a photo of Todd on Mountain Stage of which he signed, "To Linda, West Virginia Gal –TR 2003". Freddy gave his own solo jazz guitar CD to Todd which he seemed very glad to get, as he said they had already listened to everything they brought with them.
If you haven't seen Todd Rundgren, I recommend it highly and hope that he comes to this venue again. Love you Todd!
