Rick Springfield Net Worth $12 Million

Rick was born in a suburb of Sydney; however, his family moved frequently during his childhood and teen years, switching their residence between Australia and England. Rick got his first guitar at the age of 13, and soon began playing in several bands. While in England, he formed the band Jordy Boys, however the band broke up as he needed to return to Australia with his family. Nevertheless, Rick continued with his career as a musician, as he joined the band Rock House and later he showed his skills in the band Zoot, releasing the hit single “Freak” in 1971 and a hard rock cover of the Beatles song “Eleanor Rigby” which also proved to be successful. However, the band broke up later that year. Still, his net worth was growing.

Springfield then embarked on a solo career, signing with Sparmac Records, and releasing the single “Speak To The Sky” in October 1971, which peaked at No.5 on the Go-Set singles chart. His debut full length album was released in 1972 through Sparmac Records, entitled “Beginnings”. Since then, Rick has released 18 more albums, which have greatly increased his net worth. Some of his most popular albums include, “Working Class Dog” (1981) – certified platinum as it sold over three million copies, and spawned some of his most successful songs such as “Jessie`s Girl”, and I`ve Done Everything For You”. In 1982 came another one of his numerous successful releases, the album “Success Hasn`t Spoiled Me Yet”, which featured three top 40 singles, “Don`t Talk To Strangers”, “I Get Excited” and “What Kind Of Fool Am I”. His next successful venture was released in 1983, an album entitled “Living In Oz”, which spawned his next hit song “Affair Of The Heart”, which peaked at No.9 on the Billboard Hot 100. Other albums that added to the overall sum of Rick`s net worth include “Hard To Hold” (1984), “Rock Of Life”, “Karma” (1999) and his latest release “Stripped Down” (2015).

Besides his career as a musician, Rick`s overall net worth also benefited from his acting skills. Other than his appearance as Dr. Noah Drake in the soap opera “General Hospital”, which launched his acting career, he has also been featured in a number of other TV series and films. Through the 1990s, Rick appeared in several films such as “Silent Motive” (1991), “Dead Reckoning” (1990), “Legion” (1998) and others. He has also appeared in the popular TV series “Californication“ (2008) as himself.

His latest ventures as an actor include appearances as Dr. Irving Pitlor in the TV series “True Detective”, and a main role in the film directed by Jonathan Demme, “Ricki and The Flash” in 2015.

In adding to his net worth, in 2010 Rick published an autobiography entitled “Late, Late Night”, which peaked at No. 13 on the New York Times Best Seller list.

As a peak to his media popularity, Rick was awarded a Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame on the 4th May 2014.

When it comes to his personal life, Rick Springfield has been married to Barbara Porter since 1984; the couple has two children. Rick had a minor problem with LAPD because he didn`t show up in court for a scheduled appearance regarding a DUI charge.

#Quote
1[on Hard to Hold (1984)] They wanted to see me for one of the guys in The Right Stuff (1983). And I'd just gotten friggin' Hard To Hold and I said, "I don't need to be a part of an ensemble, I'm going to be a star in my own movie," and it was one of the stupidest fucking decisions I ever made.
2I've always been something of a whore with my acting, but never my music.
3Writing music is what I enjoy most. And playing it. I want to give people the kind of positive feeling I used to get from a really good concert.
