Todd Rundgren On the greatness of Laura Nyro

Rocker remembers meeting with late songwriter

Todd Rundgren recently sat down at the Rolling Stone studio to talk about his deep love for the music of the late songwriter Laura Nyro. "Her having such a great influence on me is probably one of the reasons why people think I have a sophisticated sensibility about writing songs, and how the lyrics should impact and mesh with melodies," Rundgren says. The rocker goes on to tell the story of how he came to work with Nyro and had to turn down an offer to be her band leader.
