He was linked romantically with actress Linda Blair in the 1970s. There was quite an age difference at the time he was 25 and she was 15! Nevertheless, he still refers to her as the first love of his life.

In 1969, Rick Springfield formed an Australian band called Wickedy Wak. The band was short lived but it did release "Billy's Bikie Boys. Rick's band should not be confused with Wickety Wak (different spelling), a Brisbane pub band formed in 1975 which would eventually become Australia's premier show band until it disbanded in 1990.
