BTWF: Rick Springfield in Zoot
May 14th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Rick Springfield. [ Comments: none ]

Before Rick Springfield had several #1 hits on his own, he was the guitarist in the band Zoot. How trippy is it to see the then 20-year-old play guitar the same way in 1970 as he does today? I totally recognized his distinctive arm movement when just that body part of his was on camera. What does that say about me? That I have seen him perform way too many times in concert and in the movie Hard to Hold.


Rick Springfield gets his 1980’something on for The Goldbergs
August 24th, 2018 under Rick Springfield, The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’80s, Rick Springfield was all about not talking to strangers, Jessie’s Girl and playing a doctor on General Hospital. You can say he was Hard to Hold.

Now in 2018, he is going back to the ’80s to play the owner of a Karaoke bar on The Goldbergs. The announcement was made yesterday and as soon as the rocker blew out the 69 candles on his birthday cake, he shared a photo from the set.

The ABC sitcom’s costume department did not style him like he styled himself back in the day. Instead he is wearing a leopard print scarf on his head and a brown shiny suit. Which is a good thing because, I am sure, the show did not want him to look like the poster on Erica’s wall. That would be very confusing.

Now back to Erica, I mean Hayley Orrantia and her TV sMother Wendi McLendon-Covey; they both looked thrilled to share the stage with the rock star. Can you blame? He is still groovy to the max even though he is 364 days away from turning 70. On that note, to see him celebrating his birthday on the set, then click here!

Before Rick Springfield was a chart-topping rock star, he played one on The Rockford Files. He hasn’t aged a day since he was 28 in that 1978 episode.

Last season, Rick Moranis guest starred on The Goldbergs and this year they got another Rick from the era to be on the sitcom. This one is Springfield, Rick Springfield. Although some people call him Bruce.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the rocker will be Erica’s boss at a Karaoke bar called Gary-oke’s! Hopefully, we will see him singing one of his hits Karaoke style. How like totally awesome would that be?

How does the man who wants Jessie’s Girl feel about it? He said, “Alright! At last I get to play a guy from the ‘80s. I’m excited to guest star on ‘The Goldbergs’ and return back to 1980-something!”

Even though today is his 69th birthday, he still looks exactly like he in the decade that The Goldbergs take place in.

Talking about time, the show will be back with all-new episodes on September 26th and the season premiere pays homage to Sixteen Candles.


It is puppy love for Linda Blair and Rick Springfield!
January 15th, 2018 under Hallmark, Rick Springfield. [ Comments: none ]

It looks like Rick Springfield has moved on from Jessie’s Girl to someone new. Not to Exorcist’s Linda Blair, but someone who is a real bitch. Who has them their turning heads all the way around? Puppies that need a furever home.

The two of them will be judges for Hallmark’s inaugural 2018 American Rescue Dog Show. The February 12th special is hosted by Rebecca Romijn and will feature shelter dogs from all over the US who are competing to be the top dog in the world’s most adorable categories. The best type of dog show I can think of.

BTW want to read something that will get your tails wagging? According to Springfield’s memoir, Blair and him used to date back in the ’70s. How do you like them bones?
