Todd's first band was The Nazz which was formed in 1967.

They split up in 1970.

The concert was recorded by the BBC at The Forum, London, on 7 October 1994.

"Todd Rundgren-Interactive" features on the 6 Music Classic Concert presented by Chris Hawkins

"Todd Rundgren-Interactive", (or "TR-I"), was a new concept which allowed the audience to influence how they listened to Todd's work.

In September 1994 he released "No World Order", an album made up of four hours of musical fragments each being four to eight seconds long.

The idea was that, with the music on an interactive CD-ROM, you could play them in an almost infinite amount of ways.

The normal CD contained ten songs in six variations.

With tracks from that album and many others, here is Todd Rundgren recorded by the BBC at The Forum, London, on 7 October 1994.
