There was a time in the late '80s and early '90s when you couldn't turn on the radio without hearing Richard Marx. Songs like Satisfied, Endless Summer Nights, Right Here Waiting, Angelia and Hazard – to name only a few – were bonafide radio staples. But there had been years of struggle before those hits.
When Richard moved to LA from Chicago at the age of 18, he spent years getting rejected by label after label, and told time and again he should give up. Then when fame hit, it was a whirlwind that left him questioning the success he'd worked so hard to achieve.
He writes about it all in his new memoir, Stories To Tell, and shares many of those stories in this interview.
