  • New Kids on the Block are back and hitting the road with En Vogue, Salt-N-Pepa and Rick Astley as special guests on the MixTape Tour 2022! "Extra's" Senior Music Correspondence Adam Weissler sat down with all the artists to talk about the tour.
  • Adam had to ask Rick about a recent "Ted Lasso' episode that featured his hit song "Never Gonna Give You Up", asking how it feels to be in the zeitgeist.
  • Rick teased, "I don't know whether I'm in the zeitgeist, exactly' but I'll take that, believe me, I'll take it!' He went on, "Yes, I had some hits back in the day.
  • Obviously, one keeps coming around, and I think of that as just a really lucky thing.
  • I know some artists sometimes run away from their biggest song because it is a chain 'round their neck almost, and I just think it is the total opposite, it is a door-opener.
