Todd Rundgren Caricature, shown here in Amsterdam, Netherlands 1977, age 29.
Todd Harry Rundgren (born June 22, 1948) is an American multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and record producer who has performed a diverse range of styles as a solo artist and as a member of the band Utopia.
A native of Philadelphia, Rundgren began his professional career in the mid 1960s, forming the psychedelic band Nazz in 1967. Two years later, he left Nazz to pursue a solo career and immediately scored his first US top 40 hit with “We Gotta Get You a Woman” (1970). His best-known songs include “Hello It’s Me” and the Motown-esque, “I Saw the Light” from Something/Anything? (1972).
Additionally, he was one of the first acts to be prominent both as an artist and as a producer. His notable production credits include Badfinger’s “Straight Up” (1971), Grand Funk Railroad’s “We’re an American Band” (1973), the New York Dolls’ “New York Dolls” (1973), Meat Loaf’s “Bat Out of Hell” (1977) and XTC’s “Skylarking” (1986).
Additional Rundgren hit songs: “Bang On The Drum”, “Real Man”, “Love In Action”, “We Can Still Be Friends”, “Love Is The Answer” and “A Dream Goes On Forever”.
In 1972, Rundgren began a relationship with model Bebe Buell. During a break in their relationship, Buell had a brief relationship with Steven Tyler, which resulted in an unplanned pregnancy. On July 1, 1977, Buell gave birth to Liv Tyler, the future model and actress. To protect the child from Tyler’s drug addiction, Buell initially claimed that Todd Rundgren was the biological father and named the child Liv Rundgren.
At age eight, Liv learned that the identity of her biological father was Steven Tyler. As of 2012, Tyler maintains a close relationship with Rundgren. “I’m so grateful to him, I have so much love for him. You know, when he holds me it feels like Daddy. And he’s very protective and strong.”
Rundgren’s musical style has been said to combine the DNA of Carole King, Daryl Hall and Steely Dan with a dash of Motown.
He still tours today.
