On The Comeback Trail!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic Minute

rickastley2resize.jpg

Rick Astley is England's Dr. McDreamy.

The 80's pop star ages with hotness!

For those of you who were babies two decades ago, Rick Astley is the guy who sings Never Gonna Give You Up. That gem of a classic!

You know, the song in that video that plays when your friends 'rickroll' you.

We love his poppy stuff and were excited to hear that he's touring again. Then, we found out that he's only doing shows in the U.K. in May. No fair!

Come to America!

Astley seems content with his past success and does not plan on working on new material after the tour. He told an English paper, "The chances of that are so slim. I don't think I've got the energy. I've got the best of both worlds. I can go and stand in front of 10,000 people and sing a song that was a number one record right round the world, and then go home and not have one person recognize me."

Why you gotta be so sexy, baby?????

    He tried to play The Supper Club in NYC a few years ago and canceled due to Visa problems, yeah, whatev! His voice was triple-tracked on those songs, probably can't kick it live. I also like Stock-Aiken-Waterman's Hazel Dean (dyke) song "Maybe (We Should Call It a Day)"

    If you rearrange the letters in "Rick Astley" you can spell "Tickley Arse"

    It would be EPIC if some celebrity had the balls to Rick Roll one of the late night hosts. Like, when it came time to do their movie clip, they just rocked a Rick Roll. That's pure win.

    I just remember that huge voice coming out of that skinny red headed kid's body - it was crazy. He looked like 'Opie'. I couldn't look at him singing, because his voice evoked a more sophisticated image.

    He looks like Horacio from CSI Miami.

    he has a wonderful soulful voice., you guys should all do a search on youtube coz he is just great.
    his S.A.W. songs were very poppy yes. but after that he went on to do his own thing.
    kudos for trying to revive his career again

    You wonder if the Smashing Pumpkins are still relavent….and you support this crap? Rick Astley–you are kidding, right? I hated this crap in the 80's and it is still just that–CRAP. You love his "poppy stuff"….um, wtf else does he sing? More like "poppy crap" Remember those cheesy-ass videos he used to do too? HIDEOUS.

    I will say agian what I have said before……anyone who tries to push the Jonas Brothers and Heidi Montag on the world such as yourself, has no business telling said world what we should listen to. Your taste in "music" SUCKS Perez.

    Even more exciting than the lovely Mr R. Astley is another 80's idol, the gorgeous Nik Kershaw of "Wouldn't It Be Good", "The Riddle", "I Won't Let The Sun Go Down", "Wide Boy", "Dancing Girls" etc etc etc… is also out n'about again this year. Who can forget the great scene played in the 80's film 'Pretty in Pink' with "Wouldn't It Be Good" in the background… "I've got it bad, you don't know how bad I've got it……. " Awesome!

    I am saddened and appauled that you would put Rick Astley in your blog. You shouldn't put Rick up to be ridiculed and speculated about. He is a decent englishman, and you do this to him! Not putting anyone down on here, everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. But it really saddens me that you would do this to a great talent and overal wonderful person. I hope you find your heart and delete this blog. Good Day!

    Well, Rickster could always open for George Michael who recently announced he's coming back to the states…Must have been that spin on Pushy Daisies.

    Ohhhh Perez! He is so NOT aging well…looks like his face is about to fall off. I can see why nobody recognizes him. haha! But he does seem to have his priorities straight- unlike most of the people profiled on this site. ;)
