Todd Rundgren is truly the "wizard" of all these areas. His album "A Wizard, A True Star" was released in 1973 and brought critical acclaim.

Patti Smith is quoted as saying, "Todd Rundgren is preparing us for a generation of frenzied children who will dream in animation” Creem, April 1973 p. 56-7.

Considered by many to be the "Ultimate Rock Cult Hero", Todd Rundgren has maintained a legion of fans through four decades. In 1973 the double album "Something/Anything?" scored him big hits: "I Saw the Light" and "Hello, It's Me."

His album "A Wizard, A True Star" is a post-psychadelic epic known for pushing the technical limits of vinyl recording: at 55 minutes long, it was 14 minutes longer than most albums and in the liner notes Todd has to tell his fans to "turn it up"!

Throughout the 70s he released several albums and produced several others from artists including Hall and Oates, Cheap Trick, The Psychadelic Furs and Meat Loaf.

Rundgren has been dabbling in technology for several years; from Video Toaster software to Compact Disc Interactive (CD-I) to the 2013 release of his album "State" which was completely done using Propellerhead's Reason software.
