Interview: Rick Springfield

The early 1980's were very good to Rick Springfield. He had a Number One song with "Jessie's Girl", plus other hits including "I've Done Everything for You", "Don't Talk to Strangers", and "Affair of the Heart". And MTV wasn't the only place where you could catch him on TV - he was also the fan-favorite Noah Drake on the soap opera General Hospital. Although that was his period of highest visibility, Springfield has continued to act on the small screen (High Tide, Californication, True Detective, and a return to General Hospital) and the big screen (Ricki and the Flash), and to record music, most recently his 2016 album Rocket Science. And as we saw on Dave Grohl's documentary Sound City from a few years ago, he can still rock out! This interview was for a preview article for noozhawk.com for Rick Springfield's concert at the Libbey Bowl in Ojai on 7/10/16. It was done by email, with answers received on 6/17/16.
