Containing Multitudes Since 2004
My hero! A great musician, and the best arranger in the whole of pop music. See his work on Meat Loaf's Bat out of Hell, if nothing else.
Nice nice, back when Todd was taking the song factory into new pop 60s dimensions, way way way before joining The Cars reunion band... "Hello It's Me" is my eternally atmospheric oldies radio tune overheard at the Upper West Side diner....
Weird, I've been thinking about Todd lately, mostly because I've been watching Michael Mann's Crime Story series, and he was music supervisor on the show for a spell.I've only got some Nazz on CD and a handful of LPs, I need to correct that oversight.
A Wizard, A True Star..
Something/Anything is one of the transcendent records of all time.
We Gotta get you one too
moblabs: You make a good nazzy point re overhearing "Hello It's Me"
Ya lost me. For me, the image says it all: mouth-breather, the vacant stare (probably what prompted the attention-whore shades), the Gollum physique. The thinking man's Mark Hudson. "See Bat Out Of Hell if nothing else?" I much prefer the latter.
I have quite a few of the solo albums, can't say I have played them much but the Nazz - that's a different story.
can we still be friends...
