You knew it was coming…
Amazing song. How the hell does he not get more radio airtime? Just goes to prove what a shit hole the radio industry is in. Although I wouldn’t exactly classify Rick Springfield as an independent artist, he does use a lot of grassroots, interweb tactics to get the word out. Plus, there have got to be a million crazy fans out there that preach the word of the Rick. I’m just hoping he gets to my neck of the woods sometime soon for a concert (last time I was, uh, having a baby and couldn’t go).
Long live rock & roll!!! And I don’t have to tell you to go buy the new album, do I??

Don’t know where in NJ you are, but Rick is playing 7-26 in Oyster Bay NY, and 7-29 he’ll be at the Virgin Megastore in Times Square.
I would love to go to the NY show, but it’s a good 4.5 hours from my house. You would think Jersey was a tiny state, it wouldn’t take long to get out of it. Maybe if I lived at the very tippy-top of the state it would be easier. Oh well. And the Times Square thing looked promising, until I realized I’d have to schlep two kids with me on public transit trains before the sun came up to make it in line on time. No, my Rick obsession is not kid-friendly.
