TrueCrypt that yeah I like working world working in the it's a but a lot of good stuff going on. When you wrote late late at night you wrote about some -- dark times in in your life. You didn't use a ghost writer you actually wrote it so would make sure writer. But writing and not awful I think elevates you to a different level of being recognized as a writer how long has this writer being inside if you. -- I -- I was a kid around 1011 I ate all the the only thing -- ever go to school from my message to mr. reliable Israel. It doesn't situation woman liked and that was the only potentially -- -- -- -- -- call should be erratic should be your writer and and The Beatles got on the night. On world. Girls like musicians like Microsoft contingency should. -- a channel all that writing to -- song writing -- -- I -- had in my mind that the idea of getting back to prose writing and when there are about my autobiography cut correction did and -- -- publishers move. Like really like abortion and chi showed you should be writing you know fiction and I always wanted to do it -- finally didn't -- -- sitting down and doing it. Well it's a little more than that I mean you have to have very very deep vivid imagination. Magnificent vibrations is there a bit of a size five the thriller there's some some parallel stories that come together in the end which you know we don't need to talk about. But what was -- what was the underlying message -- in this because you know a lot of authors. Write novels it's it's it's fiction but a lot of a lot of them have come out in in in the novels but what about Rick Springfield came out in magnificent. -- did you ethnic group you put a lot of even -- fiction you put locking yourself and I mean every single character and -- there's a part of me. -- that is blind without character or otherwise you can't write. True you know he kind of that you're truthful character and not potential songs that have made up you know in different songs and there there actual issue with the Ryder. I can certainly tell let. In an open book open. And I cannot figure you know election he drinking water -- -- now look I think a lot of his guys he -- his main characters are writers. You know we start to look for a picture and then parent you've got to start -- what Richard and then extrapolate from there naturally your imagination -- -- and that. A lot and I didn't have a great -- a lot of the a lot of what goes on -- might. You know think I've thought about more than ten. Real real police should know what I mean you have to have a your heart and -- -- is just you know jumped. As so it's it's it's fiction but there is -- as part of your soul and ends up being part of this book. No absolutely has supported me in every character and I think part of every character. Every right to -- every you know character in the writers vote present -- You know it otherwise it's just there's no heart to actually wrote a long for a while ago -- -- look cute story based on. Has she yet agricultural consultants that I wrote from Assange and the first force. And I would not be an artist wrote it based around the record -- -- is no truth and it. And I saw that movement that helped me to understand that their -- you know every. Every. Look at fiction historical moment of truth.

Lithograph outreach -- series with the ground. That's all -- and and they also get the first. The first 11 of the first -- -- approach. Earlier in your career even though you had assumed this writer and sided view. You became so popular. You know it nobody becomes popular. As quickly as it appears it seems like you just -- overnight but I know that you had a lot -- leading up to that that point. But you do see it to with Jesse's girl at the perfect time and you were just so video friendly and that and -- Jesse's girl was just a great video that helped to define. -- MTV and in the music of the eighties and that is still very very popular today.

And thought you were coming off of a long night he had gotten from the airport we thought that it felt. Among all alive you look pretty they got there about realists who goes quick look at Tony Perkins where you very polite and always believe that. Let's get the culture that we get from rough and everything has shored up in the lobby of the hotel that you checked in at. Elevators not in -- -- -- currently going on my contract -- match intentionally chronicle could talk a look at ultra. And a court expert -- in -- are gonna.

I'm in the every shortly Marty the former Arctic. Not quite Spanish feel a little bit darker at all but definitely probably one of the greatest American artist alive. Oh yeah absolutely I agree completely. Pat thanks sir thanks for sure in a story number I'm going to call. Rick when I when I met you I I had a dime and a beach if you from what I seen in public in on MTV but when I. When I talked to you and and there were some aspects of your autobiography late late at night. It really revealed such a deep. Insightful. Insightful person who had dealt with with a lot of things with you you dealt with depression you've dealt with with a lot of things in your life -- -- it was the music the way in the beginning to to try to hide from that to get away to escape that. Always a high it was try to trip trying to balance and that's -- too great balance it. I'm not know guys just won't show it it would have been improvements they hadn't discovered music and that's a great -- And you look into it the right way it can really -- easier to transform their feeling a -- it was very much so from being completely from. Are you. Are you happy with yourself now. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Here's a text that -- wants to know did Rick have a lot of money when he started out. Home like. What -- I don't let this very can young mom from -- my dad has -- army officer and I'm. Notre all the that was not about money and debris actually music is not about money -- her lead and never been about money -- -- -- -- musicians who got into it to make money they got into. Because they love what you do that money followed the great. But it just never been about the money -- -- it unnerved. I think that's actually how you make money doesn't become about the money come to that level what you do. You've written so many songs have you heard a song that somebody else has written that you thought. I could written that's. This 100 person that we -- -- our direction wanted to in the solo show called -- people that are Colbert that you blue black. That being able -- great -- And yet and streamlined pandering and every people -- -- you have a you have very public image. What's something about used -- people don't generally know that you would like them to know about Rick Springfield. I don't know I mean I'm kind of nervous about people -- settled -- -- And -- -- keep -- -- as much I can my out of biography that I look at that are Egypt colleges to think that's probably that's the biggest surprise. Rick I've enjoyed the conversation I have a great day tomorrow -- I'll see tomorrow with the -- the books. Great record I think she's -- tell us. Rick Springfield like from his own studio in Malibu California tomorrow he'll be at Octavia books at 513 Octavia street signing with the grants from the book. Magnificent vibrations which is coming out maybe six to -- pre order book and you get lithograph signed. I've -- will be right back. -- -- -- -- Sir Paul McCartney is bringing his Al their tour to New Orleans Thursday June the nineteenth. -- being a smoothie king senator WWL has your tickets at -- you can beat the box office and win tickets right here before they go on sale. -- embryos and give you two ways to win on the air and on FaceBook.

And Tommy will announce the lucky winner Monday morning in the 8 o'clock -- morning show sir Paul McCartney in concert in New Orleans Thursday June 19. Smoothie king senator from the station that loves rock and roll royalty. We WL. I'm screwed and welcome back to our show here's an update on -- -- W a pretty jaguar people tonight it's something we've been talking about on the show. Should politicians used their Christian values in their campaigns. 67%. Say no. And 33% say yes. You can give us your opinion by going to our website WWL dot com we'll give you an update on the pole in just a few minutes we've been talking about the case it is a freshman congressman Vance McAllister. Who is now asking for forgiveness following the release of a video showing him making out with a congressional staffer. Now. According to CNN united to -- is because I was on the air I guess when this happened. By its the -- the woman's name is Melissa peacock. And her husband Heath peacock. Told CNN that his life is wrecked and they're headed for divorce. But I would think that she's justice response -- this this idea of an NN Hillary Clinton. I've seemed to kind of blame Monica Lewinsky. For the affair with -- Well it was bill's fault too. And it was almost as if she was. Saying well you know it was her fault if she should have done that and she's I forgot what her words for but it derogatory. The words about Monica Lewinsky. Well what part of that was not bill's fault equally. They were part of -- your wife making out with somebody is not. The guy's fault as well with I forgive this politician. But I think this is a great opportunity to talk about something that's bothered me for a long time and that is politicians that use god. -- provoked a Christian values. When they run for office. When they're human beings and their gonna -- and just like everybody else. And I think this guy should be forgiven needs to ask for forgiveness he admits -- he said -- no doubt that he's fallen short. He's asking for forgiveness from god his family his kids his staff his constituents who elected him to serve he went on to say that he's gonna do everything he can. To earn back the trust. That. That every earn back the trust of everyone who's been disappointed. And that's and that's fine I'm not well I don't know what he did was not right I want Arab racist in the right way. I don't approve of what he did but I I approve of the apology and everything. When I disapprove of and I think this should just be a classic lesson of politicians should not. Use Christian moral values. In their campaigns. And even the people with duct dynasty. Endorsed this guy and we know what. They stand for there's nothing wrong with Christian values. But. It's cheap talk. And so many politicians have proven that it's cheap talk. If you really truly a Christian. If you're really truly a moral person. If you believe what Christians and moral people believe. They just live the life. Just be that person. And don't brag about got -- actually from sources so the dims can skate because they don't -- to have moral values. Now that's not the case at all. But if you brag about it and fall short. It just it just accentuates. How politics and we would -- notice but it's just accentuates. How politicians will say anything just to get elected. Too many politicians don't really say what they mean or what they're gonna do. They say what they think people want to hear to get elected. So I think there's a lot of responsibility that falls on voters as well. Mean I understand this temptation the temptation to tell voters I'm a moral Christian I'm gonna bring family values into my office. OK if voters are gonna fall for that. And if you're a politician why not sing it. So voters need to be Smart enough to stop falling for that stop being. Just such sheep. When it comes to some of the things that politicians -- And I would also think it would the in the best interest politicians suggest stop. Using. Christian values. And a two run. A campaign. Here is it taxed. That reads. -- no one is sorry until they get caught. When they get caught the regulators. Yeah well that argument can be made. Here's a text. Saying that I am ruining Christmas morning Santa. Rudolph. Gremlins the Tooth Fairy and wrestling are all real. I mention. Wrestling okay. Some of the punches. Some of the kicks they don't really lions. With press Romanian town I I didn't I didn't go like you don't go to the event. But I came to appreciate the crowd and when I realized how disappointed the crowd was the undertaker lost after 21 straight victories. I couldn't help but realize OK wait a minute it's a drama. -- the violence is is it's -- They're great athletes but the violence is its make it's it's theatrics. But they don't know how the ending is they don't know the -- They don't know how it's gonna turn out so that would be no different from a movie or a play -- you go to where the violence is -- I hear is. A text that -- says something tells me. This. -- the -- ain't the one and only. Mac meaning McAllister has certainly wasted no time in settling in to. The hard work of representing the people. Again like you know people are fallible. And people make mistakes and I I don't I don't hold out against the guy. But what I do. -- think is wrong is again to use god to get elected. Here's attacks that reads. To hold somebody to a higher standard because of their political position is silly. Every one should have the same moral standards. Whether they're a bomb. Or the president. I agree with that. But by promoting Christian values in your campaign. You're suggesting that that you were more moral. Then everybody else. And that's what rubs me the wrong way. This group blog tonight agree or disagree it's on our web sites and -- and others it's -- -- you overcome its -- politicians. Please stop running. On Christian values. Here is attacks. And it reads. And all I mentioned earlier round I I saw of sorts in the game I simply never show last night as Washington national championship game between UConn and Kentucky. And they were so one moment when they showed President Bush I George W. Bush and Bill Clinton sitting next to each other. And I thought I imagine the secrets. I mean being being an ex president. As being part of a very very exclusive club. A mansion the secrets that they now the only ex presidents now imagine the things that they know that nobody else knows. And I said. -- -- -- Measure what they were talking about. Well here's a Texas said. They were talking about area 51 aliens how stupid Sarah Palin is now the Iranians are -- court are going to wonder what hit them. In a few weeks. Here is a text on McAllister has to do. Is say something bad about the president or obamacare. And he'll be back in the good graces with the GOP. It's worked for others before. -- Eric Cantor said that he I've -- the apology was a I think the apologies are very appropriate. -- -- a going to be people who listen to me and think well -- being critical of the politician when -- makes mistakes to look I have made mistakes. And I'm sure we'll continue to make mistakes in my life. I'm not critical of what he did. Set the right thing to do not critical of that. I'm focusing on is the use. Ranking about your Christian morals and your moral standards. He run for office. For the purpose of getting votes because that's obviously not really who you are. And there are so many politicians who have disappointed -- it's just time for that to no longer be a campaign issue. If you gonna join us tonight -- numbers 2601872. All 38668890870. -- amber states have VA seventy. And WB final update on our WWL pretty general opinion poll we -- back here's the question should politicians used their Christian values.
