Todd Rundgren: Faithful (Bearsville)

Robert Duncan, Creem, August 1976

DID YOU know that Keith Relf died? I didn't until last night. But I don't care. First of all, I didn't know the guy personally, and second, I got the new Todd Rundgren album. And side one of Faithful renders Relf, as well as Jimmy Page and any of the rest of the old Yardbirds, along with Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys and Dylan and the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix, as dead as yesterday's news, whether they're already dead or not.
