Rick Springfield memoir coming


NEW YORK (AP) — Rick Springfield is getting real.

The rock star and “General Hospital” actor is working on an “extremely candid” memoir, publisher Touchstone Fireside announced Tuesday. “Late, Late at Night,” which will tell of Springfield’s long battle with depression, is scheduled to come out October 2010.

Springfield, 60, is known for the hit song “Jessie’s Girl” and for his roles on “General Hospital” and “Californication.”
