Todd Rundgren Live, Then And Now


As I've noted here before, I've enjoyed singer, songwriter, musician and record producer Todd Rundgren's music for many years.

Thanks to youtube.com we can listen to him perform live from the 1970s to today.

You can watch Todd Rundgren sing A Dream Goes On Forever on the 1970's British rock TV program The Old Gray Whistle Test via the below link:

I used to watch The Old Gray Whistle Test when I was in the U.S. Navy and stationed in Scotland in the mid-1970s. (The name of the program comes from Tin Pan Alley, where the record producers would play a record for the elderly doormen in grey suits. If the doormen could whistle the tune after hearing the recording, the producers would say the song passed "the old grey whistle test").

You can also see Todd Rundgren perform I Saw the Light with Daryl Hall and a very good house band on Live From Daryl's House, a very good Internet musical program, via the below link:
