A Vision in the Middle of a DaydreamSaturday February 5, 2011

Excerpted from a recent piece I wrote for AOL News...

"Veteran singer-songwriter Mark "Moogy" Klingman (who, along with Buzzy Linhart wrote the Bette Midler standard "(You Gotta Have) Friends") was recently diagnosed with cancer. His battle to survive is being fueled with what he knows best: singing and playing keyboards for his band The Peaceniks, in and around New York City.

"The medicine that works best is the music," he told AOL News recently, "and what's happening at the end of this month is probably the best medicine the musical gods could have ordered."

Klingman's referring to two shows he'll be part of Jan. 29 and 30 at the Highline Ballroom in New York City. The concerts will be special, as they will feature a reunited version of the revolutionary early-1970s band that helped put Klingman on the musical map: Todd Rundgren's Utopia."

Thank you my friend, beautifully written. I was half sleeping last night as the Jimmy Fallon show began when some sweet guitar licks caught my attention. Who is that? Turns out it was Todd. After all these years, he still gets to me like no one else.
