Todd Rundgren was number-three in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Fan Vote, but he failed to make the final cut and will have to wait until next year.
Commenting on the outcome, Todd says, "I’m heartbroken... for LL Cool J. Five times a bridesmaid..." This was Todd's first nomination, despite being eligible since 1995. LL (whose middle name is Todd) has been nominated five times.
This year's other nominees who came up short were John Prine, Rage Against the Machine, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, Devo, Kraftwerk and MC5.
So until next year's nominees are announced, Todd will keep busy with a tour in support of his memoir, The Individualist: digressions, dreams and dissertations, which will be published on December 21st.
