todd "my recored fantasy " dates announced
A Wizard, A True Star. The title of Todd Rundgren’s 1973 solo album aptly sums up the contributions of this multi-faceted artist to state-of-the-art music. As a songwriter, video pioneer, producer, recording artist, computer software developer, conceptualist, and interactive artist, Rundgren has made a lasting impact on both the form and content of popular music, and has along the way created a body of work that is among the most intriguing and impressive in Rock and Roll history.In addition to writing and recording myriad evergreen hit songs and being universally acknowledged as the godfather of the marriage of music and multimedia, his more than 100 production projects include multi-platinum albums by Cheap Trick, Grand Funk Railroad, Patti Smith, Hall & Oates, XTC, and of course Meat Loaf’s seminal game-changer “Bat Out Of Hell”.

Mark Wahlberg of "The Other Guys" Talks Music and his love for TODD RUNDGREN

Playlist: Mark Wahlberg of "The Other Guys" Talks MusicFor Mark Wahlberg, classic rock never goes out of style.

In fact, The Other Guys star has been discovering some oldies but goodies as of late.

Wahlberg explains, "I'm re-discovering stuff that I knew, but I never knew who the artists were [Laughs]—lots of classic rock stuff and people like Todd Rundgren. There were certain songs I liked, but now I've discovered [these artists'] other material and who they are."

In The Other Guys, his character Terry Hoitz is a tough cop with an itchy trigger finger, perfectly balancing Will Ferrell's timid pencil-pushing Alan Gamble. Given Terry's propensity for shooting first and asking questions later, was curious what Terry would listen to.

Wahlberg chuckles, "Man, they had Terry listening to Megadeth and that hardcore metal shit!"

That makes perfect sense when you see the hilarious new flick. Don't miss Mark Wahlberg in The Other Guys!
