Rick Springfield Background
Richard Lewis Springthorpe (Rick Springfield)
was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. As a child, Springfield was often shuffled around from city to city in England and
Australia as the son of an army officer. Springfield first developed a penchant for music when he was in high school. He picked
up the guitar and established a group known as the Jordy Boys. Springfield eventually played with bands like Zoot and Rock
House prior to his pursuit of a solo career. "Speak to the Sky" dropped in 1971 and turned out to be a hit in his native Australia.
After a providential solo premiere in the land Down Under, Springfield inked a deal with Capitol Records. He relocated to
L.A. in 1972 and put out the album Beginnings. The album highlighted several of the tracks that were successful in his homeland,
including a revamped rendition of "Speak to the Sky." Overall, the album did well on the charts. To Springfield's disappointment,
Springfield was billed as "the next teen pop idol" by critics. To deter that image, Springfield shifted to Columbia Records
and came out with the Comic Book Heroes LP. By the time the mid-1970s rolled around, Springfield took a break from music and
set his sights on acting. Springfield landed roles in hit shows of the era like Wonder Woman, The Six-Million Dollar Man,
The Incredible Hulk and The Rockford Files. At the start of the new decade, Springfield returned to his music career and scored
a contract with RCA. While working on his music under the new label, he landed the role of Dr. Noah Drake on one of the most
popular soap operas in the U.S., General Hospital. As Springfield's reputation grew among soap opera fans, Springfield issued
Working Class Dog??s. It didn't take long after "I've Done Everything For You" and "Jessie's Girl" hit the airwaves that Springfield
posters popped up on walls everywhere. Springfield then cut the critically claimed albums Success Hasn't Spoiled Me Yet (1982)
followed by Living in Oz, which dropped a year later. In 1984, Springfield was cast in the movie Hard to Hold. He also contributed
most of the songs for his cinematic debut's soundtrack. The soundtrack yielded "Love Somebody," which became a Top 10 hit.
Tao was his next effort and arrived in 1985. The album contained the hits "Celebrate Youth" and "State of the Heart." Springfield
also took part in the Live Aid concert for charity along with multiple performers. Springfield then took a short break from
his music career. In the spring of 2013, Springfield returned to the set of General Hospital, assuming his previous role as
Dr. Noah Drake. Today, Springfield continues to tour, keeping his contagious songs of the '80s alive.
