Only denied godlike immortality status by the persistently eclectic nature of his work, over the course of nearly four decades in music Rundgren has galloped through harmonic pop, soul, heavy metal, Beatles send-ups and experimental a capella albums. Common to all these releases is the enquiring mind and wayward spirit of an enigmatic pop wizard. Still rocking his leather-trousers-and-two-tone-hair look, the daddy of intelligent guitar rock still isn't acting his age as he plays R&B- and soul-influenced tracks off his 24th solo album, 'State'.
