Rock legend and veteran music producer Todd Rundgren -- perhaps best known for his lingering hits "Hello It's Me" and "Bang the Drum All Day," is scheduled to take up residency at Columbia College Chicago's music department April 8 through 12. He'll be the last artist-in-residence of the school's 2013 spring semester.

While he's in town, Rundgren will lead workshops, hold master classes and hold forth in classroom settings. And for the piece de resistance, he'll give a concert on his final day.

Besides his frontman duties, Rundren has for decades produced for a plethora of rock's most famous names, including Cheap Trick, Meatloaf, Hall and Oates and Grand Funk Railroad. He also composed music for such beloved TV shows as "Pee-wee's Playhouse" and the partly Chicago-shot drama "Crime Story."
