In a searingly candid memoir, Grammy Award-winning pop icon Springfield pulls back the curtain on his image as a bright, shiny, happy performer to share the startling story of his rise and fall and rise again in music, film, and television, and his lifelong battle with depression. In a searingly candid memoir which he authored himself, Grammy Award-winning pop icon Rick Springfield pulls back the curtain on his image as a bright, shiny, happy performer to share the startling story of his rise and fall and rise in music, film, and television and his lifelong battle with depression.

In the 1980s, singer-songwriter and actor Rick Springfield seemed to have it all: a megahit single in "Jessie's Girl," sold-out concert tours, follow-up hits that sold more than 17 million albums and became the pop soundtrack for an entire generation, and 12 million daily viewers who avidly tuned in to "General Hospital "to swoon over his portrayal of the handsome""Dr. Noah Drake. Yet lurking behind his""success as a pop star and soap opera heartthrob""and his unstoppable drive was a moody, somber, ""and dark soul, one filled with depression and insecurity.

In "Late, Late at Night," the memoir his millions of fans have been waiting for, Rick takes readers inside the highs and lows of his extraordinary life. By turns winningly funny and heartbreakingly sad, every page resonates with Rick's witty, wry, self-deprecating, brutally honest voice. On one level, he reveals the inside story of his ride to the top of the entertainment world. On a second, deeper level, he recounts with unsparing candor the forces that have driven his life, including his longtime battle with depression and thoughts of suicide, the shattering death of his father, and his decision to drop out at the absolute peak of fame. Having finally found a more stable equilibrium, Rick's story is ultimately a positive one, deeply informed by his passion for creative expression through his music, a deep love of his wife of twenty-six years and their two sons, and his life-long quest for spiritual peace.

Springfield fans will LOVE his candid life story!

Back in love with Rick Springfield after reading his incredible book written in his own words. Its like he's sitting right next to you telling you his entire life's roller coaster ride until he turned 60 and thought he'd write it all down for his adoring fans (yes, he's now 61 believe it or not and looking a lot more like 40!) I laughed out loud so many times and also cried for him through his losses. Though he's no angel, he's definitely learned some hard life lessons and grown from them into a much better man!

Awesome read!

I've been a fan for over 30 years. Rick not only lived the book but wrote it. It was one of the best books I've read in a long time. He wrote it from the heart and you won't be able to put it down. You'll see him more than a "pretty boy" when you're done--guaranteed.

I loved this book. It i

I loved this book. It is funny, poignant and honest. I saw Rick in concert and he is much the same in his book. He takes an honest look at himself and life. I didn't know he was such a huge dog lover, but I felt after reading this that I had really gotten a look into the person behind the fame. I highly recommend it.

This is a great book whet

This is a great book whether you are a Rick Springfield fan or not. He has told his story from a no holds barred perspective from his sexual infidelity to dealing with his depression from an early age. As a girl who grew up in the 80's when he hit the height of his fame there was a great story to be told about his life down under growing up without any real sense of belonging which just fueled the depression to his fall when the depression really started to take hold of his life and career. This book covers it all and how he managed his depression to make his come back to acting as well as music. I recommend this book to anyone who is a Rick Springfield fan and even to those who are not. It is well written - there are parts of laughter as well as parts with tears as he shows himself to be more than just a teen idol of the 80's but an actual person who struggled with internal demons.
