He threw away a cover of Junior Wells' "Messin' with the Kid" on Something/Anything?, but it was an introduction that played like an afterthought — but he's always pledged allegiance to British blues.

On one level, that perception is true since he is undoubtedly a gifted pop songwriter, but at his core, Rundgren is a rock & roll maverick. Once he had a taste of success with his 1972 masterwork Something/Anything?, Rundgren...
