Rick Springfield: You Have To Go Through Pain To Look Inside

Posted: Updated:

"A lot of you didn't get it back then but I know you do now". That's Rick Springfield talking about his fans and their understanding of his music over the years. The singer has many loyal fans and they inspired "An Affair of the Heart", a documentary that's been released on DVD Tuesday. Rick talks about how when he first started out, he thought it was all about him...but then over the years he realized it was actually about the fans.

Springfield also says his fans have gotten older but they're rediscovering meanings in his music so that it's actually all new again. Rick also talks about, no joke, how one of his song's saved a young girl's life.

Fun Facts About Rick Springfield:

  • He was a member of pop rock group Zoot from 1969 to 1971 and then started his solo career with his debut single "Speak to the Sky" reaching the top 10 in Australia.
  • Springfield had a No. 1 hit with "Jessie's Girl" in 1981 in both Australia and the US. He received the Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance for "Jessie's Girl".
  • Rick Springfield was 13 when he first played guitar, and formed a band, Icy Blues, while still in high school.
  • He starred as "himself" in the ABC-TV Saturday morning cartoon series Mission: Magic!, for which he usually wrote and performed an original song in each episode.
  • In 1981, Springfield became a soap opera star on General Hospital.
  • In December 2005, Springfield was asked by the General Hospital producers to return to the show, and he returned to his role as Dr. Noah Drake after a 23-year absence. His run was subsequently extended, although as of 2007 he remains a guest star on recurring status, and not a full contract cast member.
