 Rick Springfield Biography

Rick Springfield’s first love has always been music, a lifelong passion ignited after picking up his first guitar at the age of 12 in his native Australia. Mastering the craft of songwriting far preceded his accomplishments as an actor and best-selling author.

With 25 million records sold, a Grammy Award for his No. 1 smash-hit "Jessie’s Girl," and whopping 17 Top-40 hits including "Don’t Talk to Strangers," "An Affair of the Heart," "I've Done Everything for You," "Love Somebody" and "Human Touch," Springfield has no intention of taking his foot off the accelerator..”

Never one to be confined to the recording studio where the music is born, Springfield has toured for over 30 years, hand-delivering the hits to millions of fans worldwide during his legendary, high-energy live shows.

Springfield’s autobiography, "Late, Late at Night" (Touchstone 2010) entered The New York Times best-seller list at No. 13 while also landing on the Los Angeles Times and Publishers Weekly top-sellers lists. Rolling Stone named it one of the top-25 rock memoirs of all time. In Late, Late At Night, which Springfield wrote entirely himself, Rick speaks frankly about the depression he’s battled throughout his life. “I’m not the shiny, happy guy people think I am. I suppose they confuse who I really am with my stage persona,” says Springfield. “But good can come from hardship. Depression causes me to over-analyze events in my life, and that’s actually a bonus when it comes to songwriting. Hey, if things had gone my way at the time and I’d gotten laid, Jessie’s Girl would never have been written.”

In the early ’70s, Springfield had a handful of hit records in his native Australia before emigrating to the United States. Bouncing between record labels and looking to make ends meet until his musical career took hold in the US, he resorted to acting and eventually landing the role of Dr. Noah Drake during the heyday and cult phenomenon of daytime TV’s "General Hospital." Simultaneously, the explosive success of his breakthrough 1981 album Working Class Dog was followed by Success Hasn’t Spoiled Me Yet, Living in Oz, Hard to Hold soundtrack and Tao, establishing Springfield as a multi-platinum superstar.

Despite his original and unwavering passion for music, many at the time mistook Springfield for a soap star hoping to convert daytime success to a faux and possibly fleeting music career. History proves that nothing could have been further from the truth. Springfield is content to let his music and four decades of productivity speak for itself.

In addition to General Hospital, Rick’s other notable TV roles include a 4-episode arc on "Californication," "Hawaii Five-O," "Drop Dead Diva," "Hot In Cleveland" and the 1994-1997 TV series "High Tide."
