Rick Springfield

Rick Springfield (born August 23, 1949) is an Australian pop singer whose career began as a singer in Rock House[?], followed by Zoot[?], a major Australian sensation. He then went solo in 1971 (see 1971 in music) but was unable to maintain much of a career in the 1970s. He became a soap opera actor, most notable for appearing on General Hospital. With a rabid fanbase, Springfield returned to music with Working Class Dog[?] and the singles "Jessie's Girl" and "I've Done Everything for You".

After a few albums with some hit singles, Springfield's lack of critical acceptance helped end his career, though he continued releasing albums throughout the 1980s. He played a few minor roles on TV in the 1990s, and released an unsuccessful album in 1999.
