Todd made the big time 3 times that I can think of- with "Hello it's Me"
"I Saw the Light (in Your Eyes)"
"Can We Still Be Friends"
Todd was a bit strange, not marketably strange like David Bowie or Peter Gabriel, just a bit strange.
But if you listen to his albums and not just the hits, especially "Something/Anything"(1972), you get a sense of all that he's been in music. His music styles gave birth to bands like Queen and Todd's vocals were Daryl Hall before Daryl Hall was Daryl Hall. He played every part on "S/A" and sang every vocal on 3 of the 4 sides. He produced so many bands' albums that he'd probably be best known as a producer if he hadn't had hits of his own. The guy's a musical genius.
Lately, though, it's been his voice that won't leave me alone. The guy's gonna be 65 and his voice is as strong, clear, and in control as it was 40 years ago. Maybe even better, if truth be told. Here he is from a few weeks ago-
Yeah, that's a voice in my head that I won't be trying to shut up any time soon.
