    Rick Springfield is still ALIVE? He CAN’T BE: He’s not doing his own reality show! :)

    If you watch Dave Grohl’s recent documentary “Sound City”, Rick Springfield plays a surprisingly substantial role in it, and his collab with Grohl’s and company towards the end is a nice little rocker. He seems to have have had a lot if Botox injected into his face or something, which is very un-rock and roll.

    Mott The Hoople nailed it:

    “And you’ve got to stay a YOUNG man,
    You can NEVER BE OLD!”
