Singer/songwriter Rick Springfield recently released a new album, The Snake King. A deeply personal collection of material, The Snake King is marked by its lyrical content and Springfield’s raw emotion, which is on full display throughout its 12 songs.

For our latest RockCellarTV episode, we’re proud to have caught up with Springfield before a recent concert to talk about the album, his career, his lyrical content and mental health — a topic we’ve seen in the news all too frequently lately, and one that Springfield tackles on his new record.

Springfield is the latest star to join the ranks of those interviewed for RockCellarTV — following in the footsteps of Gene Simmons of KISS, Steve Lukather of Toto, Mike Love of the Beach Boys, Todd Rundgren, Ringo Starr and more.

Enjoy the full, 50-minute interview between Rock Cellar’s Ken Sharp and Rick Springfield below:

RockCellarTV was introduced a few years ago as an effort to allow larger-than-life music icons to get up close and personal, discussing whatever they want — for however long they want, resulting in some candid conversations about hits, successful albums and music legacies … as well as misses, scandals and anything else they were comfortable discussing.

Rick Springfield joins the ranks of those we’ve spoken with in this capacity during RockCellarTV’s history, a list that includes Todd Rundgren’s UtopiaWalter EganStewart CopelandJudy CollinsRita CoolidgePeter Noone of Herman’s HermitsSteve HackettJohn OatesGene Simmons of KISSSteve Lukather of TotoMike Love of the Beach BoysTodd RundgrenRingo Starr and more.

Some of these chats took place at Rock Cellar HQ in California, while others were filmed on-location at venues (like the world famous Troubadour in Hollywood, in the case of our chat with John Oates) as the artists prepared for a gig. They’re all up on our YouTube channel.
