Todd Rundgren offers NO f**ks!
The legendary performer is being inducted into the Rock and Roll Corridor of Fame this yr — although he’s making information this week for slamming the induction and saying he’ll not attend.
Extra pointed in direction of our pursuits, although, the Bang The Drum All Day rocker additionally spoke up this week about working with Kanye West on the letter’s new Donda album. And it appears like Rundgren had a TERRIBLE time!!!

Speaking to Final Basic Rock about his work with the Chicago-born rapper on the brand new album named after his beloved late mom, Rundgren didn’t mince phrases when it got here to analyzing Kanye’s recording work. In truth, Rundgren isn’t even positive whether or not he made it on Yeezy’s album! That’s how a lot of a large number this complete factor turned out to be!
Clearly annoyed with the eccentric artistic course of exhibited by Kim Kardashian‘s estranged (nicely, for now, at the very least) husband, Todd talked a bit about whether or not you’ll even hear him on Donda:
“If I can contribute one thing, high-quality. If I can’t, simply let me know. There’s a chance that I’m truly in there someplace. There’s a lot junk in that document!”
However OK, artists change their thoughts generally, and so issues get altered through the recording course of, we suppose. Proper?
Solely that’s not even CLOSE to being essentially the most eye-popping a part of the legendary drummer’s remarks!
After explaining how he first linked up with Yeezy by way of music trade mutuals, Todd apparently thought it will be “a enjoyable problem” to work on Donda. Boy, did he turn into flawed.

Trying again on the former presidential candidate’s stunts — and all these weird listening events — the 73-year-old rocker WENT AWF!
Significantly, learn this:
“[Kanye] is a shoe designer … He’s only a dilettante at this level. No one would usually make data like that until they’d silly cash to throw round. No one rents a stadium to make a document in. No one flies in the whole world of hip-hop simply to croak one syllable, simply so you may say that everyone was on it.”
And Drake looms giant on this, too!
Todd’s been across the block fairly just a few occasions within the music trade, so he understands how artwork and enterprise work collectively — or generally don’t work collectively, that’s.
With that, he believes the specter of Drake’s model new Licensed Lover Boy album pressured Yeezy into dashing Donda out the door early, and the work suffered severely due to it:
“He was too afraid that Drake would one-up him, so he hurried up and launched the album the weekend earlier than Drake might get his out. And ultimately, Drake ate his lunch anyway.”
That final sentence!!!
It’s a vicious takedown of the Jesus Walks rapper, little question. And it’s doubly dangerous contemplating the supply: Rundgren is a Rock Corridor inductee who has for many years labored with and across the greatest, finest, and really most iconic names in music. So, secure to say Todd Rundgren would possibly simply know a factor or two about which he speaks.
Sorry, Kanye! Simply saying!
