Working Class Covers
(Special Ops) Shooting to international superstardom with 1981’s release Working Class Dog, (which sprung the classic single “Jessie’s Girl”), Rick Springfield has remained a music-obsessed workaholic throughout the span of his thirty plus year entertainment career. His latest album The Day After Yesterday finds Springfield revisiting some of the tracks that influenced his style such as Mister Mister’s “Broken Wings” (with original vocalist Richard Page), 10CC’s “I’m Not in Love”, and The Dream Academy’s “Life in a Northern Town”, as well as an original song titled “Cry”. Springfield explains, “I've always wanted to record these songs; they have been favorites of mine for a long time. They are songs I wish I'd written. I wanted to be faithful to the originals but still treat them a little differently and also give them the benefit of the new technology. Plus, I wanted to see if it would be easier and less painful doing a CD of songs I hadn't written...and it was.”
Longtime Rick Springfield fans know his initial claim to world-renowned fame was a result of his role as the dashing Dr. Noah Drake on the popular daytime soap opera General Hospital from 1981-1983. Dr. Drake will return to Port Charles to assist Dr. Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) cure Jason Morgan (Scott Burton) of his life threatening seizures. Springfield, who left General Hospital due to his burgeoning music career, will appear on the show from Friday, December 2nd through Wednesday, December 7th. No word just yet if Dr. Drake will resume his steamy romance with kinetic nurse Bobbie Spencer (Jackie Zeman).
Don’t forget to tune into General Hospital on December 2nd, Jason Morgan’s life is depending on it!
