Todd Rundgren Advises Trump Supporters To Avoid His Shows

Todd Rundgren has advised those who voted for President Donald Trump to abstain from attending his shows. During a recent interview with variety.com, the long-time political activist/rocker says that ardent GOP supporters will likely just be offended at his shows now.

"If I had the power, I'd say: If you're a Trump supporter, don't come to my show, because you won't have a good time," Rundgren told Variety. "And also, I don't understand your frickin' values. Because I'm not singing about that. If you don't understand that basic thing, you're just fooling yourself. I guarantee that in this show, if you're a Trump supporter, you will likely be offended. Let the buyer beware! I mean, if you can't take a joke, or you can't admit that you've made a mistake, you don't belong with the rest of us."

Rundgren does support one Donald, however, and that's Donald Fagen of Steely Dan. Fagen makes an appearance on Rundgren's most recent album White Knight:

"I've known Donald since he spent some time living out at Kauai, where I still live, and he just happened to be on vacation on the island in January. We went out to dinner, and I thought, 'Well, geez, why don't I just spring it on him?'" recalled Rundgren. "The song was primarily driven by our common frustration with what happened in the recent election. It was still pretty fresh, and we were still pretty mad about it, so it happened pretty organically."
