Todd Harry Rundgren (born June 22, 1948) is an American multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and record producer. Hailed in the early stage of his career as a new pop star, supported by the certified gold solo double LP Something/Anything? in 1972,[2] his career has produced a diverse range of recordings, both as a solo artist and as a member of the band Utopia. He has also been prolific as a producer and engineer on the recorded work of other musicians.

During the 1970s and 1980s, Rundgren engineered and/or produced many notable albums for other acts, including Straight Up by Badfinger, Stage Fright by the Band, We’re an American Band by Grand Funk Railroad, Bat Out of Hell by Meat Loaf, New York Dolls by the New York Dolls, and Skylarking by XTC. In the 1980s and 1990s his interest in video and computers led to his “Time Heals” being the eighth video played on MTV, and “Change Myself” was animated by Rundgren on commercially available Amiga computers.

His best-known songs include “Hello It’s Me” and “I Saw the Light”, which have heavy rotation on classic rock radio stations, and “Bang the Drum All Day”, which is featured in many sports arenas, commercials, and movie trailers. Although lesser known, “Couldn’t I Just Tell You” has had a major influence on artists in the power pop musical genre.[4]

    There’s a funny story related to “Hello, It’s Me”. Someone broke into Rundgrens home and bound him and a couple friends to chairs. While robbing his home, the guy proceeded to serenade the captives with “Hello, It’s Me”. No worries, nobody was hurt. Other than their pride. 😃
