Sax Player Bobby Strickland To Be Special Guest For Todd Rundgren Concert In Daytona Beach FL At Peabody Auditorium On Saturday February 13th Of 2016
Many Rundgren fans remember Strickland from Todd's late 80's and early 90's "Nearly Human" and "2nd Wind" albums and tours. He joined Rundgren again during the live tours of the "A Wizard, A True Star" and "Todd+Healing"
Strickland will only be performing with Rundgren for the Daytona Beach concert but previously performed on a few songs during this current Rundgren tour at a concert in San Francisco.
The An Evening With Todd Rundgren concert in Daytona Beach will start with a special guest opener, Mutlu Onaral.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Todd Rundgren began playing guitar as a teenager, going on to front The Nazz, the quintessential 60s psychedelic pop group. In 1969, he left the band to pursue a solo career, recording his debut album “Runt”, but it was 1972's seminal “Something / Anything?” (on which he played all the instruments, sang all the vocal parts, and acted as his own producer) that catapulted Todd into the limelight, prompting the media to dub him "Rock's New Wunderkind."
As a songwriter, video pioneer, producer, recording artist, computer software developer, conceptualist, and interactive artist, Todd Rundgren has made a lasting impact on both the form and content of popular music. Among his myriad of hits are "Hello It's Me", "I Saw the Light", "Can We Still be Friends", "We Gotta Get You A Woman", "Open My Eyes", and "Bang the Drum" (the latter a mainstay on ESPN and in television commercials)
