Rick Springfield just released his latest musical effort in 2016, Rocket Science, his 18th studio album! Written largely with his longtime collaborator and former bass player Matt Bissonette, the album delivers the expertly crafted wide-ranging pop-rock songs Springfield is known for, including “Light This Party Up,” ” Down,” and “Miss Mayhem.”
Springfield’s popularity skyrocketed with the classic 1981 single “Jessie’s Girl,” which eventually hit the top of the charts, along with hits “I’ve Done Everything for You,” “Don’t Talk to Strangers,” “Affair of the Heart,” and “Love Somebody.”

It all started when five hard-rockin’ kids from the San Francisco Bay Area joined forces in the early 80’s to form Night Ranger. Like no other rock band, Night Ranger both epitomized and transcended the sound and style of that decade.
In 1983, Night Ranger earned widespread acclaim with their multi-platinum album Midnight Madness, which included their smash hits “Sister Christian,” “When You Close Your Eyes” and the anthemic “(You Can Still) Rock In America.”
Over the years, the band’s music has made notable contributions to and been featured in many different areas of media and popular culture. To date, Night Ranger has sold 17 million units worldwide and boasts many platinum- and gold-certified albums.

The Romantics formally became a band on Valentine’s Day, 1977. Bred on the mean streets of Detroit’s east side, they were inspired by the British punk invasion and their hometown rock scene. Nearly 30 years later they are still known for having created some of the most influential and beloved rock and roll of all time.
After signing with Nemperor Records in 1979, The Romantics released their debut LP, recorded in just three weeks. Anchored by “That’s What I Like About You,” “When I Look In Your Eyes” and a cover of Ray Davies’ “She’s Got Everything.” The album is an exemplary pop-rock period piece. The Romantics evoke a youthful portrait, haunting in its innocence, a direct contrast to the tough world they knew in Detroit.
