Read reviews that mention rick springfield late at night late late jessie like a girl general hospital sense of humor well written springfield fan brutally honest great read reading this book ups and downs really enjoyed good or bad speak to the sky long time highly recommend good read saw him in concert battle with depression. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I bought this book because i have been a huge RS fan for most of my life but only a few pages in I realized it didn't matter who this book was about because it was so well written and so very interesting I forgot I was reading about Rick!

He writes as if he was speaking to you, you get a good sense of his personality I think, as I don't personally know him You can picture his story so vividly as you read every word like you are literally taken by the hand and guided through his life right by his side, and what a life it is! I felt so sad to know that he has suffered from depression since he was very young and after reading his book I got a better understanding of depression. I like how he named the depression as if it were a person, it didn't identify who he was but rather something that took hold at times. I think that anyone going through depression or knows someone who is should read this book.

Rick has inspired me and I just think of all he has gone through when I'm feeling like I just can't do it. You were brutally honest and I am grateful for that. What a talented person!!!! One person found this helpful. I am not finished with this one either, but I love the way he tells his story. I can empathize with him on the loss of pets. I to had to move and leave behind a couple of pets when growing up. That is why I will not do that again. I also can relate to the depression voice that haunted him since his childhood.

I hope that by the end of the book Mr. Springfield has come to understand what has been going on, and can say he has the strength to keep control in darkness. When I was but a tiny lass of five years, the very first 45 I bought with my carefully saved twenty-five-cent-weekly allowance was Rick Springfield's "Speak To The Sky. When I learned that he'd written an autobiography I picked it up out of habit, expecting the same breathless ghostwritten prose that shows up in so many pop stars' "autobiographies. If you're looking for a nice linear book "Late, Late At Night" will probably disappoint you.

Rick Springfield's Memoir Will Be "Extremely Candid"

Springfield begins the book in as a failed early-seventies pop phenom, living with a girlfriend in suburban L. His well-meaning but unambitious agent gets some demos to RCA Records, and the resulting contract leads to Springfield's breakthrough album "Working Class Dog.

He joins bands, becomes a teenybopper sensation, and plays at army bases during the Vietnam War and joins more Aussie bands before heading to the U. In addition to his professional success, he also finds personal happiness in that decade, marrying his wife Barbara and welcoming his two sons. His depression, however, what he refers to as his "Darkness," keeps making relentless returns. It is a major voice in the book, taunting Springfield throughout his life. Springfield does rightfully turn the blame on himself for his various poor decisions instead of just whining "I was depressed!

My brother often mocked me for liking Rick Springfield when we were growing up. As it happened my sister-in-law checked "Late, Late At Night" out of the library and he picked it up out of curiosity. PS--I'm also sick of "Jessie's Girl". It was my best friend and next door neighbor who introduced me to Rick Springfield's music.

We loved that he was both an actor and a rock star and songs like Me and Johnny and Jessie's Girl felt like they were about different aspects of our long friendship. Following Tao, I lost the thread of Rick Springfield's career a bit. I thought it was me but apparently it was him too. She also claims her mother - who went on to split with her dad when she was ten years old - and other family members were aware of the abuse. She often told me that she wished I hadn't been born. Unfortunately, this is a true story and the anonymous author doesn't hold back on the sometimes horrifying details.

Well worth reading if you've got the stomach. There wasn't really a solid beginning or conclusion it was just a compilation of the author's memories. The memories were all over the place and there wasn't really a solid time line or story.

  • (If Youre Not in It for Love) Im Outta Here!.

  • Minuet C Major D2d - Oboe 2.
  • Death and Dying: An Annotated Bibliography of the Thanatological Literature.

I can't believe that this is true. It is because the author's account is a chronicle of pleasure. I am very uncomfortable with that. I know now that it is a symptom of her abuse, and it is perhaps the most unbearable symptom there is, to find pleasure in what essential destroys you. I couldn't stop thinking about it, and I couldn't stop talking about it. And I won't be the only one.

It matters that the world knows this has taken place. It matters that it is told in this way, with such beauty. I have endeavoured to publish the book with the care, discretion and dignity it deserves.
