“Don’t come to my show,” Rundgren told Variety. “Because you won’t have a good time.”
Rundgren’s latest album features the anti-Trump song “Tin Foil Hat,” which he recorded with Donald Fagen of Steely Dan.
Variety’s Chris Willman said the new tune reminded him of seeing a couple walk out of a show last year after Rundgren criticized Trump from the stage. But the man behind hits such as “Hello It’s Me,” “I Saw The Light” and “Bang The Drum All Day,” said such a response doesn’t bother him.
Addressing Trump supporters, he said:
“I don’t understand your frickin’ values. Because I’m not singing about that. If you don’t understand that basic thing, you’re just fooling yourself. I guarantee that in this show, if you’re a Trump supporter, you will likely be offended. Let the buyer beware! I mean, if you can’t take a joke, or you can’t admit that you’ve made a mistake, you don’t belong with the rest of us.”
Rundgren laughed at the end of his comments, Willman noted.
Along with his own career as a successful singer, songwriter and performer, Rundgren is an accomplished producer and engineer who has worked with Meat Loaf, Cheap Trick and The Band as well as Daryl Hall and John Oates.
