Rick Springfield

October 12, 2010 by staff 

Rick Springfield, If you were a fan of General Hospital in the 1980s, you may remember Rick Springfield better than the dream Dr. Noah Drake, a role he played from 1981 to 1983.

Springfield took the role just in case his music career did not work.

But, fortunately for many of us, he did – in a big way.

His 17 top 40 hits, including the mega-hit “Jessie’s Girl” and more than 20 million albums sold made him an icon of popular music of a generation.

In Tuesday night at 19 pm, Springfield will be at Book Revue, where legendary WFUV and Mixed Bag Radio disc jockey Pete Fornatale will ask him about his life as a musician and actor and his candid new memoir “Late, Late at Night, Springfield will sign after the interview.

The recording artist Grammy Award-winning image depicts a performer with successful, motivated and happy, but in “Late, Late at Night”, from Springfield behind the scenes story of his fight throughout life with depression and insecurity.

As he reveals the inside story of his rise to the top of the entertainment world, Springfield says the negative forces that have led his life and his decision to abandon public view at the height of his fame.

“I take this opportunity to tell my story in my own words, then those who are going through similar things in their lives, can take my experiences, develop them and we hope to have a good laugh along the way.” he shared.

The story has a happy ending Springfield tells how he found a balance in his life by the love of his wife and children, his passion for music and its ongoing quest for inner spiritual peace.

And for you ladies who were fans in the 80s and wonder if Dr. Drake has yet, watch this promo video of the book and interview with Springfield on YouTube.

Lou Tattoo ink for tattoos TENDER ROSE

Last year, Lou Tattoo has offered a discount on a pink ribbon tattoo to draw attention to National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. They got some takers, but nothing like this year when they decided to offer the tape for free during the entire month of October.

The promotion was an amazing success. “It has completely exploded,” says the executive director Rich Arnao.

The store in Huntington Station is the smallest of its four locations, and estimates Arnao what they did six to 12 tattoos a day since the announcement of this unique campaign on their website and Facebook page. Their other locations in St. James, Selden and West Babylon are on average 20 customers per day. They were too busy to make an accurate count, but Arnao claims a conservative estimate of 400 to 500 people who have been inked in pink to show their support for breast cancer awareness to date.

“This proved to be more successful than we could imagine,” said Arnao, who praised the artists at all places to work seven days a week to accommodate everyone who requests the free tattoo. “They were all incredible.”

You have until the end of the month to get your pink ribbon tattoo on Jericho Turnpike in Huntington Station or any of the other places. And if you want to show your support beyond your body art, all sites of Lou Tattoo are also accepting donations that will be donated to local organizations for breast cancer.
