Many thanks to Jenni for sharing this video of “Walkin’ In,” from a Stripped Down concert in Clearwater, Florida, this past March, which was the first time Rick Springfield played this song live. With her permission, a link to the video is posted below.
Much has been written about the community of Rick Springfield fans (OK, maybe not MUCH, but there was a documentary about it: “Affair of the Heart“) – people who have gotten to know each other well from attending concerts across the country and fan events during RS’s long career. For instance, they raise money for charity for Rick Springfield’s birthday and organize a Christmas card exchange in December.
Recently the daughter of one of the “Rick Chicks” (or “Rick Sistas”) reached out to fellow fans because their family is going through a difficult financial challenge due to health issues. So, in the spirit of the season of caring and sharing, here’s my pitch to help a fellow fan. Their family business makes healthy homemade treats for dogs and cats. So if you have a furry friend that you want to spoil for the holidays, here’s their website: Maxx’s Munchies Pawkery.
Merry Christmas to those who celebrate it!
