On November 15, 2008 was under the Tromp Festival in Eindhoven a particular place of Todd Rundgren concert with the American String Quartet Ethel.
Rundgren is an anything: gifted songwriter, producer, performer and an innovator and pioneer in the history of the (pop) music. Still it refreshes itself. For the concert in Eindhoven, he avoided the beaten paths of the greatest vocal hits and took the necessary risk, thereby developing an exciting evening.
Prior to the deployment of integrated Rundgren concert a conversation between Todd Rundgren and Co de Kloet.
