This past week I had my first songwriting lesson with a new teacher and midway through the lesson, the instructor, who is in his somewhere in his early to mid-40s, was showing me some kind of technical thing that I don’t remember the name of right now and – I kid you not – he tells me, “Rick Springfield does this type of thing a lot.”
He then explained that he’s a big Rick Springfield fan and I told him that I am, too. Then he told me that he’s seen him in concert many times and once RS threw a pic out in the audience and it landed in his drink and he also has a poster signed by RS. He also told me that Rick Springfield has a new CD coming out and he couldn’t wait to hear it. I told him I also couldn’t wait.
I didn’t tell him about this blog, but I did want to mention it here because I thought it was so cool that somebody giving songwriting lessons is throwing some RS moves into his lesson and that this random songwriting teacher that I found on Craigslist is such a big RS fan and I thought you’d appreciate it, too.
Anyway, that’s it – back to the countdown of “The Snake King” – five more days until Jan. 26! And the Rock Solid comedy/music podcast interview that took place in San Francisco this weekend is scheduled to be available here by Thursday, Jan. 25. It sounds like it was a deep interview and different than the usual interviews RS goes through during his pre-CD publicity interviews.
