Event Description:

As a songwriter, video pioneer, producer, recording artist, computer software developer, conceptualist, and interactive artist (re-designated TR-i), Rundgren has made a lasting impact on both the form and content of popular music. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Rundgren began playing guitar as a teenager, founded the band The Nazz, before launching a solo career. 1972's Something/Anything? prompted the press to dub him 'Rock's New Wunderkind'. It was followed by several albums and hit singles, among them I Saw The Light, Hello It's Me, Can We Still Be Friends, and Bang The Drum. As a producer, Rundgren has worked with Patti Smith, Cheap Trick, Psychedelic Furs, Meatloaf, XTC, Grand Funk Railroad, and Hall And Oates. He composed all the music and lyrics for Joe Papp's 1989 Off-Broadway production of Joe Orton's Up Against It and composed the music for a number of television series, including Pee Wee’s Playhouse and Crime Story. In 1998 Rundgren debuted his new PatroNet technology which for the first time allowed fans of a musical artist to subscribe directly to the artist’s musical output via the Internet, a technology that continues widespread use today. His recently released autobiography The Individualist is available now.​
