He may have missed the cut on the Rock Hall inductions, but thirty years ago this week In the Studio put forth Todd Rundgren's nomination loud and clear by spotlighting him and his Spring 1972 double solo masterpiece" Something/ Anything?" in this interview as our episode #48.

Meeting Meat Loaf head on in the narrow hallway at midnight "on a hot summer night" in 1978 left an unforgettable image. His debut album "Bat Out of Hell" had been building slowly over the ten months since release, and now the bombastic, passionate, outrageously funny music of composer Jim Steinman as performed by Meat Loaf was one of the hottest new things in American music then.

If you think the songs of composer Jim Steinman are populated by fantastic people and places right out of central casting, they ain't got nothin' on the real life sojourn of the 300 pound interior lineman dressed in a prom tuxedo named Marvin Lee Aday from Dallas Texas, aka Meat Loaf. Here is a rare colorful classic rock conversation with the man.

After listening to my chat here about his first twenty years of his half century career ( his first solo album "Runt" came out in 1970!), maybe you will agree that Todd Rundgren did more in and for rock before the age of twenty-five, in more ways, than any other musician.
