 Rick Springfield Biography

Rick Springfield is a Grammy Award-winning Australian singer-songwriter, musician, and actor known for his hit single "Jessie's Girl."

A member of the pop-rock group Zoot from 1969 to 1971, he had an initial career as a charismatic teen idol; he started his string of solo works with a debut single, called "Speak to the Sky," that reached the top 10 in Australia. In mid-1972, he relocated to the U.S., evolving into a more strident new wave and power pop sound as the years passed.

Respected as a serious musician while also having a huge following, he had a #1 hit with "Jessie's Girl" in 1981 in both Australia and the U.S. He received the Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance for "Jessie's Girl," which proved to be a career breakout moment. He followed with four more top 10 U.S. rock hits: "I've Done Everything for You," "Don't Talk to Strangers," "Affair of the Heart," and "Love Somebody". His two U.S. top 10 albums are 1981's Working Class Dog and 1982's Success Hasn't Spoiled Me Yet, releases featuring an energetic sound earning both commercial and critical successes.

As an actor, he portrayed Dr. Noah Drake on the daytime drama "General Hospital" from 1981 to 1983, and he sprang back into the role from 2005 to 2008 and 2012, returning again in 2013 for the show's 50th anniversary with his son and fellow actor Liam Springthorpe.

Though experiencing gigantic success in the early to mid-80s, Springfield felt totally exhausted with the pressures of stardom. He would end up devoting more time to his personal and family life, though still releasing albums through the late 80s and onward. In 2010, Springfield published his well-received autobiography, titled "Late, Late at Night: A Memoir," which detailed these struggles.

In October 1984, Springfield married his longtime girlfriend, Barbara Porter, in his family's church in Australia. When being interviewed about his autobiography, Springfield admitted that he dated while married and that it was a problem that he has overcome. He mentioned in particular dating Linda Blair, Demi Moore, Connie Hamzy, Morgana Welch, and Geraldine Edwards. Though on top of the world for a time, things proved unstable and uncertain. In 1985, when his first son was born and after the release of his Tao album, Springfield took a break from his musical career to spend more time with his family. He also resolved to deal with the off-and-on depression that had affected him since his adolescence. Springfield had suffered greatly in the 70s due to both the serious illness of his father and difficulties dealing with people in the music industry.

In 2016, he starred as Vince Vincente/Lucifer in season 12 of The CW series "Supernatural." In 2017, he starred as Pastor Charles in the "American Horror Story" episode entitled "Winter of Our Discontent."

Springfield continues to record and perform his music today.
