Rick Springfield has worn many hats as an entertainer and performer over the past five decades. He began learning guitar in his teens, and by the late 1960s had joined a hit band in his native Australia. Within a few years, however, as that band swung its sound to hard rock, Springfield set himself apart with a collection of dreamier pop-rock including his first solo hit, “Speak to the Sky.” He soon moved to the United States, and by the mid-’70s had begun a parallel career in acting while releasing his 1981 hit, “Jessie’s Girl.”
As a performer, songwriter and producer, Richard Marx has had innumerable highlights over his nearly three-decade-long career. The Chicago native has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, starting with his eponymous debut, which charted up to number eight and spawned four top-five singles, including the number-one smash “Hold on to the Nights,” with “Don’t Mean Nothing” earning him a Grammy nomination. Its follow-up, 1989’s Repeat Offender, was even more successful, going quadruple-platinum on the strength of its two number-one singles, “Satisfied” and “Right Here Waiting.”
