Rick Springfield Background

Rick Springfield was born under the name Richard Lewis Springthorpe in a suburb of Sydney, Australia in 1949. Rick Springfield's father, Norman Springthorpe, was in the Australian Army. His father's career took the family to various places where he was stationed. In England, Rick Springfield joined and played in numerous bands during his time there and continued to do so upon the family's return to Australia.

One of the early bands in which Rick Springfield played was Rockhouse with the bass guitarist Pete Watson. The band started in 1968 and within the year changed its name to MPD, LTD. Interestingly, Rick Springfield took the opportunity to tour South Vietnam to play for the Australian troops at the early age of nineteen. Once the band returned back to Australia, the drummer Danny Finley and Rick Springfield started the band Wickedy Wak. The lineup of Wickedy Wak included Phil Blackmore on keys and Dick Howard. After working with Zoot on the Wickedy Wak single, "Billie Bikie Boys," Rick Springfield replaced the lead guitarist and vocalist. It was during this time that the band decided to wear pink attire in the zoot suit-style. The band had created a rather bubblegum or teen following that it was attempting to change by covering Beatles' songs within the genre of hard rock. It was during this time that the cover version of the song, "Eleanor Rigby," hit the number four postion on the Go-Set's Top 40 in 1971. In spite of another hit, "Freak," Zoot disbanded later that year.

Rick Springfield took the opportunity to sign with Sparmac Records to produce and release his debut solo song, "Speak to the Sky." It peaked on the charts at number five. Under the same record label, Rick Springfield released his debut album, Beginnings, in London, England. It became the first of seven albums to reach the top forty on the Billboard 200. After time spent on Sparmac with the owner of the label acting as Rick Springfield's manager and producer, he signed with Columbia Records in 1973. The decision was made to promote Rick Springfield as a pop star for teens, similar to contemporary idols like David Cassidy and Donny Osmond. Rick Springfield alluded in an interview that it only took someone looking at his photograph to make the decision to brand his musical career in such a way. It didn't help that he wrote the hit song "Jessie's Girl," which quickly peaked at number one of the charts and has continued to be a hit song for decades and make it listeners swoon.

In addition to Rick Springfield's role as a musician and singer-songwriter, he has a successful acting career. He is also an author, having written his autobiography entitled Late, Late at Night: A Memoir. What remains a legacy of his career to date is his discography and hit songs.

Rick Springfield Trivia

In addition to becoming a New York Time's Best Seller, it is on the Rolling Stone's list of "The 25 Great Rock Memoirs of All Time."


Rick Springfield Concert Experience

The Rick Springfield concert experience is what many audience members consider epic, as the '80s teen heartthrob and pop rock and roll icon takes the stage. During an interview with Salon, Rick Springfield gave insight into what inspired writing both stories and songs, "I often wonder what my life would have been like if puberty had never arrived in all its hairy, erect and pimply glory. I'd be able to hit the really high notes without a problem, that's for sure. Life would have been so much simpler and kinder to me and my monster stories if adolescence had just stayed the […] away. But arrive it did. I started to notice girls. More importantly, what pleased and attracted girls. And it wasn't my weird little freak of an English teacher with all his adverbs, nouns and non sequiturs. It was the scruffy band down the street playing loud, obnoxious songs that weren't about monsters or the planet Moon or anything I was writing about in my "novels." And the girls LOVED these spotty guys, who were not unlike myself, except that they played guitars instead of their mom's typewriter." While Rick Springfield does not speak directly to his stage performance, he acknowledges his ability to make his audience enjoy his music played live. There are few who will walk away from the opportunity to see Rick Springfield play a concert in person.
