Last year on this day was a big press day for “Ricki and the Flash” and I remember it well because I was at a hotel in Palm Springs so I got to watch all the RS interviews that were on that day since I wasn’t at work. Plus it was my birthday so it was a little treat in addition to my real-life celebration.
So, if you don’t mind little birthday self-indulgence, let’s go back in time to past Aug. 6 news (tonight he’s doing a show at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island – hope everyone who goes has a great time!)
Press for “Ricki and the Flash”
Official announcement that RS would star in “Ricki and the Flash.” (See article here.)
Promoting “My Precious Little One”
RS has the highest chart debut in over 20 years with “Venus in Overdrive.” His first CD of all new material in almost five years came in at No. 28 on the Billboard chart.
A scene on “General Hospital.”
And now waaaaay back, to my 1982 diary:
Update on Aug. 10: I found some clips from the Aug. 6, 2016 show (from somebody whose videos turned out WAY better than any I’ve taken. In fact, it is such an amazing RS concert recap video, I totally plan to watch it on my birthday again next year. Happy birthday to me.)
