Meet pop star, Rick Springfield, when he signs his no holds barred memoir, Late, Late at Night, at Barnes & Noble in The Grove at 7PM on Tuesday, July 19, 2011 in Los Angeles. Discover what General Hospital’s Dr. Noah Drake has to say about his life long dance with Mr. D (his depression) and his battle with sex addiction.
Springfield’s candid autobiography reads like he actually wrote it, instead of a ghostwriter. While his attitude towards women is appalling in the early years, at least he addresses it. Consider his roller coaster ride in the music industry as a helpful primer for budding musicians. Moving anecdotes about his dogs, his relationship with a little girl name Sahara, and his dad’s deadly cancer will keep you reading late at night. More shocking is what happened to his son Liam.
Unwilling to have you miss a beat, Springfield packs in over sixty years of his life as a singer and actor. Sure, some passages are a whirlwind chronology of events, but the inspiration behind his songs (including Jessie’s Girl) and the peculiar coincidences he notices more than make up for it. The story doesn’t end there. Springfield’s recent drunk driving arrest warrants a new chapter.
Baby boomers won’t be surprised to hear this is a wristband Affair of the Heart, so arrive early. Buy a copy of Late, Late at Night ($15.99) and Springfield will personalize it. He will even allow photos. Just have your camera ready for a bookseller to snap a picture of you while Springfield signs your book. Leave the Californication, General Hospital, High Tide, Human Target, and other memorabilia at home.
Spring for this autobiography if you’re a fan.
