This Day in Music: August 13

This Day in Music: August 13

1980, Four masked robbers broke into Todd Rundgren's New York house and proceeded to steal Hi-Fi equipment and paintings after tying the musician up. It was reported that one of the intruders had been humming his hit, “I Saw The Light.”

I'm guessing this is not an even Todd would like to commemorate.

I believe I read once that the Healing album is very much a reaction to the events of this day.

A few months later, John Lennon was shot.

1980 was not a good year for musicians.

See you in Akron,

Little typo up there...

I of course meant an "event"

I must have misspelt it.
