As a performer, songwriter and producer, Richard Marx’s nearly three-decade-long career has had innumerable highlights. The Chicago native has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, starting with his self-titled debut which went to #8 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and spawned four Top 5 singles, including the chart-topping Hold on to the Nights, and Don’t Mean Nothing which earned him a Grammy nomination for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. The follow-up, 1989’s Repeat Offender, was even more successful, hitting #1 and going quadruple-platinum with two #1 singles in Satisfied and Right Here Waiting. When both Rush Street (with two #1 AC hits in Keep Coming Back and Hazard) and Paid Vacation (with its #1 AC hit, Now and Forever) went platinum, Marx achieved a seven-year string of triumphs that rivalled any in pop-rock music history. To this day, he is the only male artist in history to have his first seven singles reach the Top 5 on the Billboard charts.
