About That Time Rick Springfield Killed a Guy in Vietnam...

rick_springfield_120.jpgYeah, that Rick Springfield, the singer-songwriter-actor-former Australian teen idol whose 1968 trip to entertain U.S. troops in Vietnam ended with an attack from the Viet Cong. According to his clearly amazing new memoir Late, Late at Night, Springfield helped load mortars in defense, one of which killed an enemy soldier. "That was a war situation but it is still something that to this day sends a shiver down my spine," Springfield confessed. He also acknowledges having fought depression for years, failed at suicide, cheated on his wife and girlfriends, and ruled out appearing on Dancing With the Stars: "That would be a reason my wife would divorce me." Well. Now you know. [Reuters]
