Rick Springfield told us that it’s the love, interest, and support from both his female and male fans that keep him honest and progressing musically and emotionally: [“I write what I like and that’s why the music always comes from a male perspective because I am, y’know? But some of the image stuff. . . I mean I always resisted all the teen stuff, but they still printed stuff anyway back in the ’80s and I had to deal with it. But I always played and wrote what I wanted to — that I thought was good stuff, which is why I still have male fans. And the male fan base is actually growing, because I’ve always written, I think, with a degree of integrity and not a sell-out vibe at all.”] SOUNDCUE (:29 OC: . . . vibe at all)
