Rick Springfield - Springfield Recovering From Shoulder Surgery

One-time Aussie pop hunk RICK SPRINGFIELD is recovering from surgery to repair his rotator cuff following a recent motorcycle accident.
The Jessie's Girl hitmaker appeared on U.S. daytime chat show The Talk on Tuesday (25Jan11) sporting an arm sling, and explained he has been forced to take a break from music to recover after crashing his bike.
He said, "It's a rotator cuff accident, a motorcycle accident, so that's why I can't play or anything. It hurts so much, it's so painful."

Rick's surgery was not from a recent motorcycle accident. It was from one that he had in the late 80's but had recently started giving him trouble.

The motorcycle accident Rick Springfield was referring to on The Talk happened 20 years ago. The surgery was to correct on going problems.It's nice when fans get to see their favorite celebrity mentioned in the news, but it's even better when the news is ACCURATE.
