We will be releasing Rick Springfield’s early Sound City recording with Rick’s band before the Keith Olsen studio musicians were brought in. Many of these cuts appear on later releases but none are as authentic as these. You’re just not a fan without these beginning treasures.
Rick Springfield, yes a name that was on the lips of every girl from here to London will have a CD coming out with Rick and his original recording and performing band from the early seventies before the hits started for Rick. This is his album that later was re-recorded with new studio musicians by Joey Verra. These are the original tracks only from SPM. Songs like Bruce, Cold Feet and a big bonus track "Still Got Music." Stay tuned for the release date... soon to come.

According to their website, Best Buddies is the world’s largest program that creates friendships between persons with and without intellectual disabilities. For people with intellectual disabilities, Best Buddies is a lifeline to the joy of having and being a friend, going to parties and music festivals, playing sports, improving reading, writing and computer skills, securing successful jobs, learning how to ride public transportation, living independently in their own homes, falling in love, raising a family and making lifelong friendships.Through Best Buddies, hundreds of thousands of people with intellectual disabilities have successfully moved from segregation and desolation to a new acceptance in their family and community. In turn, Best Buddies has created a new spirit of public service for thousands of middle school, high school, college, citizen and e-Buddies volunteers that will last a lifetime.

Feb 16th 9PM EST VH1 Classics
It was a time of Ronald Reagan and Rubik's Cube Miami Vice and Molly Ringwald, Jordache jeans and Joe Montana. But most of all, the 1980s were ten years of totally bitchin' music.
Join VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the Eighties as we count down the coolest, gnarliest, most un-bogus songs of the decade that gave us hip-hop, hair metal and a funky little purple man named Prince.The five-part program will feature classics from `80s luminaries like Michael Jackson, Cyndi Lauper, Public Enemy, Journey, Guns N' Roses and Duran Duran.
Each tune's back story will be told through interviews with the musicians who created them, as well as the legendary artists they inspired. The show features new, original interviews with an unprecedented number of the decades greatest stars including The Bangles, Daryl McDaniels (Run-DMC), Deborah Gibson, Styx, INXS, Jane Wiedlin (The Go Gos), Colin Hay (Men at Work), Katrina and the Waves, Mike Mills (R.E.M.), Bananarama, Joe Perry (Aerosmith), ABC, Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Toni Basil, Bonnie Tyler, Dexy's Midnight Runners, Devo, The B-52s and more.
In the grand tradition of VH1's previous "100 Greatest" specials, like 100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders and 100 Most Metal Moments, 100 Greatest Songs will also bring you up to date on what the decade's greatest stars are doing today, from U2 to the Eurythmics.

Rumor has it, that "Three" (the one stuck in the vault with Maxie) is Logon Drake, brother to Patrick (and assumingly, son to Noah?). It'll be interesting to see if those rumors are true, how that will all work out, and if it'll mean more screen time for Rick.
