Backstage with Rick, Eddie and John



Rickspringfield Hey, hey, 80s aficionados! Are you ready for a crazy blogging experience? This Saturday night, I'll be blogging all day from backstage at the '80s Fest concert at Clearwater's Ruth Eckerd Hall, starring Rick Springfield, Eddie Money and John Waite.

I'll have a slew of photos from the dark catacomb of hallways, stories from outside the dressing rooms, gossip from the wings off the stage and tantalizing tales of catering delights with our 80s songwriting gods. Tune in all day Saturday for continuous updates. I'll post photos and briefs nearly instantaneously.

If you're attending the concert, be sure to yell out when you see your's truly on stage to do the show introductions at the beginning of the night. I'll be the plump, sweaty guy on stage slurring his words worse than Courtney Love at a fraternity kegger.

If you're not attending ... then you're crazy. These three guys put on an incredible show. I've met both Rick and Eddie in person before and seen their past shows at Ruth Eckerd Hall, and they're not to be missed. And this time, I finally get to see John Waite perform live. I can't wait.

Want of taste of what to expect? Check out our former podcasts featuring music and interviews from all three:
