Todd Rundgren released a new album earlier this month, White Knight. One of the tunes, Tin Foil Hat, was co-written by Donald Fagen of Steely Dan fame. The Mad Tin Foil Hatter in question is, of course, Donald Trump. Todd does not like the Insult Comedian as you can see from this interview with Variety:
Variety: The anti-Trump song you did with Fagen reminded me of when I saw you perform in Los Angeles last year, and right after you made some remarks about your feelings about Trump, the couple next to me angrily walked out. You left the impression that doesn’t bother you.
Todd: No. 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. 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.
Tell us how you really feel, Todd. #sarcasm.
It’s time to put on your Tin Foil Hat and listen to this Rundgren-Fagen collaboration with the Other Donald on lead vocals.
This is the second time Fagen and Todd have worked together. This first was in 2006 with a cover of Al Green’s Rhymes, which Todd co-produced and played on:
