Big sigh....I still love Rick Springfield. Whenever I hear one of his old songs on the radio, I KNOW that means it's going to be a great day.

In my wildest dreams I never thought that I'd actually go to a Rick Springfield concert. He was just like all of the other pop posers in my mind. By chance, I received two free tickets to one of his concerts and thought, "What the heck? It's a free concert and my wife will probably enjoy it." In all honesty, I have to admit that Springfield put on one of the best shows I've seen in a very long time. He not only went out into the crowd to perform, he came all the way back to where my wife and I happened to be and gave an elderly woman sitting next to my wife a hug during "Human Touch." He earned my respect after that show, and I would gladly pay to see him again.

Funny you should mention Rick Springfield. Heard him mentioned on the radio a couple of days ago. I believe he was celebrating his 61st birthday..

Had you asked me just a few years ago if I was interested in going to a Rick Springfield concert, I would have laughed in your face.  While I liked "Jessie's Girl," I never gave much more thought to the guy best known for being on soap operas and a brief stint on the original "Battlestar Galactica."      A couple of years ago, I was given a free pair of tickets to a Rick Springfield concert.  I though to myself, "Why not?  It's …

About this musician


Singer, actor. Born Richard Lewis Springthorpe, on August 23, 1949, in Sydney, Australia. The son of an Australian army officer, Springfield frequently moved throughout his childhood, living in both Australia and England. While in high school, he developed an affinity for music, began playing the guitar, and formed a band called the Jordy Boys. He went on to perform with the groups Rock House and Zoot before launching a solo singing career with the 1971 Australian hit "Speak to the Sky."

After an auspicious solo debut in Australia, Springfield was signed by the American-based label Capitol Records. In 1972, he moved to Los Angeles and released the album Beginnings. Featuring many of his previous Australian hits, including a new version of "Speak to the Sky," the album fared well on the charts. To Springfield's dismay, critics immediately labeled him the next teen pop idol. In 1973, in an attempt to shed his bubble gum image, Springfield moved to Columbia Records, where he recorded the disappointing LP Comic Book Heroes.

In the mid-1970s, Springfield temporarily shelved his music career and concentrated on acting, appearing on several popular television programs like The Rockford Files, Wonder Woman, The Incredible Hulk, and The Six-Million Dollar Man. In 1980, he managed to secure a recording contract with RCA. While recording with the label, Springfield was cast as the dashing Dr. Noah Drake on the popular daytime drama General Hospital. As his ...
