Hi All,The likely location appears to be the current display case for Eric Clapton memorabilia, displayed here. Todd is expected to make an appearance at the HOF on Monday, September 6, along with Roger Powell and Kasim Sulton for a photo op and autographs.
Just so we are all clear and there are no misconceptions..... This is what the Exhibit will look like for Todd at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. It's not a retrospective but a display. In fact, I think we are bumping Eric Clapton out of his glass apartment and taking over the lease! See ya in Akron and then Cleveland!Aloha,
Karen Pals attended and prepared this report on his comments.
Utopia Live in Boston 1982 (released in the US July 27, 2004) is reviewed.
The long-awaited/expected collaboration of Todd and Donald Fagen is about to bear fruit. On March 14 (a familiar date for another TR event) will see the release of Donald Fagen's latest solo effort "Morph." Digital retail versions will also include a bonus track of a TR-produced/Al Green-penned "Rhymes" which also features Todd in some capacity. News releases don't give much detail about how to acquire it otherwise. The specific quote is
According to Warner Bros. VP of marketing Eric Fritschi, the label will sweeten the pot for digital retailers by offering "Morph" with a bonus cover of Al Green's "Rhymes," produced by and featuring Todd Rundgren.
According to an entry on TRBazaar.com:
"Best Of Live" to be released 11/15/05
Notes: This CD is a collection of 11 classic Rundgren tracks stretching over a 25 year peiod from 1979 to 2004. The most recent tracks are "Soul Brother" (from "Liars") and a cover of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." The rest are 100 per cent Rundgren classics. Hear 'em and weep as the crowd goes wild to "Real Man," "Love Of The Common Man," "I Saw The Light," "It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference," "Can We Still Be Friends," "Something To Fall Back On," "Hello It's Me," and "Love Is The Answer" - generally, some of the greatest songs ever written.

I'm producing a documentary about my band The Tubes. I interviewed Todd, Michelle and Kasim Sulton for the film. I have a website, http://thetubesproject.com with a trailer and picture of Todd in the "production photos" section. I thought Todd/Utopia fans might be interested.
Wed., June 15 was the first of 2 shows celebrating Casey Fox's 15th anniversary on WORT. Jeff'weavil'Gauss provided a TR report. from Jeff'weavil'Gauss:
That was MUCH FUN-I am pleased to be a part of such an elaborately diverse gathering of die-hard musicheads ...and even greater to know I am still "Guilty Pleasure's Todd Rundgren correspondent"
We began with the ever-classic Love of the Common Man off Faithful vinyl, Casey IS Captain Analog, and then chatted about the current tour, mainly about Joe, over much of the rest of that side (skipping and all :)
We naturally dove into a current show-5/21/5 Redwood City, CA- for the closer, While My Guitar Gently Weeps from (thanks LISA). Besides being a great example of the shows 'encore set', Casey is a big Beatles fan and had a guest on earlier (Jim Birkenstock) that spoke of the Fab Four.
Next we segued into the most recent release's closer, Liar, to show musical diversity and promote the most recent release.
Finally we rapped up over most of the rest of Faithful side two by speaking a bit of Liv and her "spiritual father", the origin of the name The Nazz, and Todd's upcoming tour plans with Hall and Oates and Donald Fagen.
Overall we filled about 22 minutes of airtime with TR!
THANKS CASEY and CONGRATS on 15 YEARS!
