General Hospital’s Jack Wagner is “Forever Grateful” to Co-Star Rick Springfield


 
Why is Jack Wagner beholden to co-star Rick Springfield?  The General Hospital rock stars were playing a show together in Boca Raton, Florida, when Wagner met his long-lost daughter, Kerry.  A celebrity golf tournament has Jack going back to the sunshine state and the memories of that night have the avid golfer happy to do it.

The Palm Beach Post writes,


Wagner, one of the celebrities scheduled to appear at the ISC-Audubon EcoGolf Celebrity Charitable Tournament at Hollywood Beach’s Westin Diplomat on Saturday, has a notable Palm Beach County tie-in: In November 2011, backstage at a concert he played at Boca Raton’s Mizner Park Amphitheater with fellow “General Hospital” heartthrob rocker Rick Springfield, he met his long-lost daughter Kerry, who lives in Broward County.

“I’m forever grateful to Rick Springfield,” he says earnestly.
