Even though he's been a star for 35 years, Rick Springfield's music might be more famous than he is. Recently, the singer-actor was on an elevator with a young man who asked Springfield if he was a musician. When he replied, "Yes, I’m Rick Springfield," it didn’t ring any bells. But when he followed up asking if the questioner knew "Jessie’s Girl” and his eyes lit up.
While his biggest hits came out in the '80s, Springfield says his last three records are the best of his career. And he's already planning another.
