Todd Rundgren Reforms Utopia

Todd Rundgren has reformed Utopia to play a gig in New York on January 29.

The band will feature Rundgren on guitar with the 1974 line-up of Moogy Klingman (keys), Kevin Elfman (drums), Ralph Schuckett (keys) and John Siegler (bass).

This was the line-up that recorded the Utopia debut album ‘Todd Rundgren’s Utopia’.

Klingman has been battling cancer for some time and is fighting what he calls his “health battle”.  “I have found that the best medicine that I take to deal with illness is music,” he says in posting at his website. “To play music and work with other musicians, is the most healing thing that I can do. So I plan to be performing at my benefit and healing the audience while the audience heals me”.

Rundgren put Utopia together as a prog-rock band after noticing the impact of acts like Genesis, Yes and Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

Utopia will perform at the Highline Ballroom in New York on January 29.  Money raised on the night will go towards Moogy’s escalating health costs.
