Upcoming TV Appearance for Rick Springfield

As posted on www.rickspringfield.com


Actor and rock superstar Rick Springfield, who cemented his fame with the 1981 hit single "Jessie's Girl," gives an 80's loving, fashion-challenged fan the surprise of her life on the his Style Network fashion intervention series "How Do I Look?" Hosted by celebrity stylist and fashion guru Jeannie Mai, this will be one hard-rocking, smooth-talking, high heel-walking episode you won't want to miss!

Catch this awesome new episode of "How Do I Look?" on Saturday, June 25 at 8:00pm ET/PT on The Style Network.

The "How Do I Look?" team comes to the rescue of Laura, a hard-working mother and owner of a growing DJ business. She loves music and the 80's rocker look, so much so that she still dresses like a video vixen sporting big hair, leggings and lots of leather. Unfortunately, Laura's outdated ensembles are way too over the top and inappropriate for a middle-aged working woman. She needs to tone down her look and let go of the past if she wants to take her business to the next level, so it is up to Jeannie, Laura's best friend and daughter along with a professional stylist to turn around this fashion disaster. For the first time, the team enlists extra help and encouragement from rock star Rick Springfield -- Laura's ultimate 80's idol. He makes a surprise appearance during Laura's grand reveal and even serenades her as she begins a more posh and polished fashion future.

Rick Springfield is a singer-songwriter, Grammy Award-winning musician, actor and best-selling author. With 17 top 40 hits, Springfield is best known for the Grammy-winning, 1981 #1 single "Jessie's Girl", which became a blockbuster of 1980s pop rock music and helped establish the emerging music video age.

Springfield has continued to release albums throughout the late 1980s, into the 1990s, the 2000s and beyond. His most recent release, Venus in Overdrive debuted on Billboard at #28, his highest chart position since the mid 80s. He's had multiple popular hit songs including but not limited to “Love Somebody”, "Affair Of The Heart", "I've Done Everything For You", " Don't Talk To Strangers", "I Get Excited", "Love Is Alright Tonight", and "Human Touch".

The Motels were a New Wave music band from the Los Angeles area best known for "Only the Lonely" and "Suddenly Last Summer", each of which peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1982 and 1983, respectively. Their song "Total Control" reached number 4 on the Australian charts in 1980. Martha Davis, the lead singer, reformed a version of the band called The Motels featuring Martha Davis, in 1998; as of 2009 she continues to appear under Martha Davis & The Motels or The Motels with various line-ups.
