One Response JasonMorganIsAHottie April 30, 2009 Rick Springfield showing tasteful nudity on Showtime…whoohoo! GH blew it when they didn’t seem to know what to do with Drake Senior in the romantic dept. a few years ago other than a brief scene with Anna which went nowhere. Typical GH. I’ve been a fan of Rick’s for 28 years, and while I’m glad he’s back on the small screen, I’m not sure about the storyline that brings him to it. Rick has been on tour the last 11 years and while not hitting the big arenas like he did in the 80’s, his concerts today are absolutely fabulous.
