I've always liked him a lot, but I honestly only know the hits. Can anybody recommend some more songs by him that they like that aren't considered a hit?

Todd was actually born in Upper Darby, PA, which isn't that far from me. I recommend highly his double album "Something / Anything?", particularly because he plays all the instruments on that album. Really skilled musician. My favorite song is 'Wolfman Jack'.

Thanks, I'll look that up.

Todd also was in a band called Utopia in the late 70s and early 80s. They had a couple great hits that made the Top 100 that you never hear anymore -- "Set Me Free," "The Very Last Time," and "Feet Don't Fail Me Now." You might want to check out their greatest hits collection -- "Anthology: 1974-1985."

By the way, did you hear that Todd is going out on tour next year with The Cars? Apparently, Ric Ocasek has said no to the reunion so they're getting Todd to handle the vocals.

I'd love to see that!
