Real rocker and '80s heartthrob Rick Springfield played this fictional rocker in the 1984 film Hard to Hold. He sang "Love Somebody" and "Bop 'Til You Drop," both of which charted in the US top 20. In the film, his ex-girlfriend Niki Nides (Patti Hansen) is still in the band, which hinders his efforts to charm the woman of his dreams, social worker Diana Lawson (Janet Eilber), who has never heard of him.
