I was chatting with a friend this morning, one who isn’t particularly interested in Rick Springfield and his doings, and even he commented that “Rick Springfield is everywhere this week.”
To make this easier for those of us who
have a life missed some of Rick’s appearances this week, I’ve pulled them together in one happy little post right here. Enjoy!

(genius move, it got him tons of press today, and even TMZ said, “He Rocks!”)
And finally, Rick on Dr. Oz. I can’t get the embed feature working on this, but take a look anyway. There are four parts to this, and it is interesting how it is from a “health and wellness” perspective.

I’m sure there are more things I’ve missed. And I’m not gonna lie; I see people I know in that clip of Rick in the subway, that must have been fun. There’s certainly a twinge knowing all of this happened just sixty miles from my front door. Still, at least these days I can find all of these links and just throw them up on the page like this. Back in the day I used to have to tape the show, figure out how to pull that feed and get it onto a digital file and then upload it all to my own website. How amazing it is just to Google around for these links, throw them up online and have them all ready in like, ten minutes.
The internet has come a long way, baby. And so has Rick. A few years ago we were thrilled for him to have one or two big NYC appearances booked. Now he’s “everywhere”. Good for you, Rick.
Good for all of us, too.
