Todd Rundgren was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last October 30 after being constantly nominated for 3 years.
During Rundgren’s event, Patti Smith and other artists who worked with Rundgren gave each of their thoughts to the famed musician/producer.
“He was unflinching in the face of new technology. He would just bend it in his hands,” Smith said in a pre-recorded speech. “He would tell the band, “If you know what you want, I will help you. If you don’t know what you want, I’ll do it for you.’”
Rundgren started in the world of music accompanied by his rock band Nazz. Later on, he would embark on a solo career giving large contributions to music and is been frequently referenced by many as their main inspiration. From soft rock, he walked on the progressive path and techno-rock.
Aside from that, he is among the in-demand producer and has produced several famous songs such as Meat Loaf’s “Bat Out of Hell,” Grand Funk Railroad’s “We’re An American Band,” and many more.
Unfortunately, Todd Rundgren couldn’t attend the said event in Cleveland, Ohio due to scheduling conflicts. However, it is long believed that the musician is a critic of the said award process.
The full event will be aired on November 20 on HBO. A radio simulcast will also take part on SiriusXM’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Radio.
