OLDIES BUT GOODIES – ATC MONITORS TRANSCEND TIME

rick_springfield.JPGLAS VEGAS, NEVADA: On any random day in any random city in America, knock on any random door and ask the person who answers what they know about Rick Springfield. Without fail, you will hear a reference to Springfield’s iconic ’80s hit, “Jessie’s Girl,” but from there things become less predictable. Many people know that Springfield played the character Dr. Noah Drake on the daytime soap opera General Hospital in the early 1980s and then returned to the role a few years ago. What is perhaps least appreciated is the breadth of Springfield’s musical career, which began in the late 1960s in Australia, gained traction in the U.S. during the 1970s, and exploded in a riot of success in the 1980s before the singer/songwriter took a decadal break to help raise his two sons. more
