Todd Rundgren

It seems appropriate to kick off September with Todd Rundgren, given his famous reference to needing to stay after school for making the teacher want to dance to his hot drum licks. Todd is also quite the teacher. He taught us that if you record an album with “just” your voice and a voice synthesizer that can mimic the sound of pretty much any instrument, it’s basically cheating to call the album A Cappella. He also taught that, with very few exceptions, white guys shouldn’t try to rap.
