There are only 12 days until my next Rick Springfield concert! In honor of this, I will begin a countdown to July 26. This countdown will give you useless information about my infatuation with the man, as well as trivia you couldn’t care less about.
You may recall from my March post that Rick signed my Working Class Dog album and I got a hug and a kiss from Rick at his concert at the State Theater in
And now, the 12 days of Rick Springfield:
On the 1st Day of Rick, my obsession gave to me…
An idea for my Life's To-Do List - Before I die, I want to sing Jessie's Girl on stage with Rick Springfield. Trust me people, this will happen! I have other, less lofty goals like paying my parents back for college and spending my retirement traveling the country in an RV. But this one is at the top, because how much fun would that be?
Every wedding, bar, party, place I go to with music, I request Jessie's Girl (just because it’s the only Rick song they know!). I even request Jessie’s Girl at the Dueling Piano Bar, Jellyrolls, in Disney World. It took about 3 years before they finally learned it, but learn it they did, and I tip them generously! I've had DJs and piano men and band singers look at me like I have 3 heads, especially in college in the early 90s when I was in the minority while the other girls were swooning over Kurt Cobain, Gavin Rossdale and Eddie Vedder. That’s okay, just more Rick for me!
