With 25 million albums sold, 17 U.S. top-40 hits, including “Don’t Talk to Strangers”, “An Affair of the Heart”, “I've Done Everything for You”, “Love Somebody”, and “Human Touch”, as well as a 1981 Grammy® Best Male Rock Vocal win for his No. 1 single hit “Jessie’s Girl” behind him, Springfield has more to say with his latest new release, “Rocket Science”.
Still playing nearly 100 live shows a year, Springfield’s bond with his audience is the subject of the recent documentary An Affair of the Heart, winning special jury awards at both the Nashville and Florida Film Festivals. He also recently wrote and recorded a new song with Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters / Nirvana) as well as being a featured guest in Grohl’s documentary about “Sound City,” the fabled San Fernando Valley recording studio.
His 2010 autobiography, “Late, Late at Night…: A Memoir”, for Simon & Schuster’s Touchstone imprint, entered The New York Times best-seller list at No. 13, hitting the Los Angeles Times and Publishers Weekly lists as well, with Rolling Stone recently naming it one of the Top 25 rock autobiographies of all time.
Also, within the past year, Springfield played opposite Academy Award® winner Meryl Streep in Jonathan Demme’s “Ricki & The Flash”, plus a multi episode arc in the HBO series “True Detective”.
