First off, let me start by saying that Rick is my all time favorite solo artist by about 10 miles! I have about 100 of his songs on my ipod which is about 30 more than any other artist. I have seen him live 7 times and met him twice. The first time I met him in the mid-80's, he looked me in the eye, smiled, and was personable. The second time I met him was a few years ago and he would not allow camera's back stage and tried to charge me $60 dollars to take a picture with him from his photographer! I declined to buy the picture.

So now he will be in town this upcoming weekend and he is doing a book signing. I thought that was awesome as I have my copy and I was all ready to go the 25 miles to get him to sign it! Well, I just found out that he WILL NOT sign books that aren't bought at the store at the moment of the signing!!!! WTF is wrong with this greedy bastard?! He is a 70 year old millionaire at this point in his life!! And he wants to force his fans to buy his book twice and take pictures with him. Fuck him, I am done! I will never spend another dime on this man to see him live and I will illegally download any new material that he comes out with!

Has anyone else experienced this new "money obsessed" Rick Springfield?
