Rock pioneer returns with hits, new CD and decades of showmanship
To his myriad fans, Todd is god. Guitar hero, renowned producer, chart-topping songwriter, prog-rock icon, power-pop wiz, one-man band, hard-rock role model, R&B vocalist, electronica icon and even a … (click for more information) rapper – a musical juggernaut from his debut album, Runt, in 1970, through nearly two dozen more, including his latest, State, which hit No. 12 on Billboard’s Electronic chart. You’ve sung along to his hits: “Hello It’s Me,” “Can We Still Be Friends,” “We Gotta Get You A Woman,” “Band the Drum All Day,” among others. And it’s his unpredictable live shows that deliver what the Buffalo, NY, News calls “artistic vision with a mind-blowing blend of emotion and virtuosity.” From his gold album, Something/Anything?, to his seminal prog band Utopia, to his producer’s credits for, among others, Grand Funk Railroad’s “American Band” and Meat Loaf’s mega-album “Bat Out of Hell,” the multi-instrumentalist, rock pioneer and veteran showman returns to pack out The Handlebar again.
