Tonight on the Epix satellite channel, a new rock documentary called "An Affair of the Heart" airs. It charts both the professional life of "Jessie's Girl" singer Rick Springfield, as well as the fans whose lives he has legitimately touched. It's an impeccably crafted and well-told documentary, which combines riveting drama from both on and off the stage, and will give you a greater appreciation of the guy whose song you sing along to every time it comes on your car radio. We spoke to Springfield about his early collaborations with David Fincher, why he's such a fan of Stanley Kubrick, and his response to the outpouring of appreciation leveled at him this year (he also appears in Dave Grohl's great "Sound City" doc).
