Rundgren scored a Top 20 hit in 1971 with the plaintive "We Gotta Get You a Woman." He produced records by Meat Loaf, Grand Funk Railroad, XTC, Patti Smith, New York Dolls, Psychedelic Furs, and Bad Religion. And he may be music's number-one technogeek.

Jackson sang the 1981 semi-cool-guy anthem "Is She Really Going Out with Him?" He's done swing and jump-blues -- predating the retro-swing revival by a decade -- and even composed an album of classical music. -- Mark Keresman

Todd Rundgren and Joe Jackson perform with Ethel at 8 p.m. Friday, April 15, at the Pompano Beach Amphitheatre, 1806 NE Sixth St., Pompano Beach. Tickets cost $28 or $38. Call 954-523-3309.
