Vote Todd Rundgren Into The 2020 Rock ‘n Roll Hall Of Fame!

Time To Vote Todd Into The Rock ‘n Roll Hall Of Fame!

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame just announced the nominees for 2020, and Todd Rundgren fans are excited to have his incredible music career acknowledged once again…

Todd was nominated for the first time last year, and while I’m not a fan of the “popularity poll” they run each year, it’s a great way to reinforce Todd’s fan base – and to acknowledge his incredible impact on popular music…

His brilliant 1972 double album “Something / Anything?” was listed as one of the 500 greatest albums of all time by Rolling Stone magazine…with great songs like “I Saw The Light”, “Hello Its Me” and “It Wouldn’t Have Made Any Difference”:

Todd’s masterpiece “Hermit Of Mink Hollow” is a powerful album, including “Can We Still Be Friends” and “Fade Away”…you can see videos and music from this classic album of power pop by clicking here:

Todd was on David Letterman’s late night show many times, and always wowed the Host with this musical prowess:

Here is a look at his appearances:

Todd has followed his own musical path for decades, and released another great album called “White Knight”:

This new album included musical collaborations with Daryl Hall, Donald Fagen and many more…see those music videos here:

Finally, Todd also has an incredible career producing music for others as well:

Did you know that Todd produced Meatloaf’s “Bat Out Of Hell” – one of the biggest selling albums of all time? How About his exceptional work on Grand Funk’s classic “We’re An American Band”? And Daryl Hall and John Oates! Patti Smith! XTC! Cheap Trick – and many more…see those hits here:

  2. You included two of my favorite Todd masterpieces-“The Hermit of Mink Hollow” & “Todd”. Though I love many songs on “Something/Anything”, I was more drawn to the eccentricities of “A Wizard, A True Star” and the humanitarianism in the moving lyrics of “Hawking” on “Nearly Human”. Todd should have been in The Rock ‘n Roll HOF more than 30 years ago. It is a long overdue honor he has earned many times over. Thank you for your wonderfully written affirmation of that salient fact, John!

  8. He would definitely get my vote for ‘I Saw The Light’ alone. The rest is just a bonus.
    Janet would get my second vote, if only for her sublime album, ‘The Velvet Rope’.
    Best wishes, Pete.
