  1. Steve Perry "No Erasin'"

    The video director was like: "Hey, Steve. Get into another outfit and we'll shoot the same video for the second single as the one we shot for the first." Bernie
  2. Steve Perry "No Erasin'"

    For everyone excited about Steve Perry’s return to music, I’m sorry to report that his second single is worse than the first. Maybe he should have thought of reuniting with Neal Schon instead of going it alone. Or found better songwriters to collaborate with. Bernie

    Hmmm. Bernie

    As you might expect, all of the clips used in the pre-concert video were properly licensed. Bernie

    Nice quality on this classic Raspberries promo film mucked up by cheesy color effects! Bernie

    We’re all working toward the same goal, Kirk. Work for most of your life and hope that there’s enough accumulated to enjoy the rest of your life. Bernie

    ROUND HILL ACQUIRES ERIC CARMEN CATALOG, INCLUDING ‘ALL BY MYSELF’ The New York-HQ’d publisher has just acquired the catalog of hit singer/songwriter Eric Carmen – including hits such as “All By Myself,” “Hungry Eyes”, “Go All The Way” (with his band The Raspberries), “Make Me Lose Control”, “Almost Paradise” and more. In 1970 Carmen formed The Raspberries and became their lead singer and primary songwriter. Less than two years later, the band signed with Capitol Records and released their first hit, penned by Carmen, “Go All The Way.” That record went on to sell 1.3 million copies, and cracked the Billboard top five in the summer of 1972. It has now been played over 52,000 times a year, on U.S. radio, every year, for forty-six years. The Raspberries are often credited with creating the genre now known as ‘Power Pop’. Round Hill’s President Neil Gillis commented, “Eric is a legendary triple threat and hall of fame from every angle; artist, composer and musician. I have been a fan of his music from the earliest of days and it’s a privilege to be involved with his amazing body of work. We are kindred spirits on many levels and we are honored to have him as part of the RHM family.” After the break-up of The Raspberries in 1975, Eric Carmen began a solo career with the million-selling worldwide smash, “All By Myself” and the follow-up single, “Never Gonna Fall In Love Again.” Both tracks were from his gold-certified debut album. Outside of his own recording career, Eric Carmen songs have been performed and recorded by such musical heavyweights as Frank Sinatra, Celine Dion, Sheryl Crow, Frankie Valli, Diana Ross, Motley Crue and Luis Miguel. Carmen’s songs have been featured on several Grammy-nominated and multi-million-selling soundtracks such as “Footloose” (“Almost Paradise”), “Dirty Dancing” (“Hungry Eyes”) and most recently “Guardians Of The Galaxy” (“Go All The Way”). Round Hill Music acquired Carlin Music for a sum in the region of $245m in January. It catalog includes songs and/or recordings by the likes of The Beatles, Eddie Holland, Neil Sedaka, The Rolling Stones, The Offspring, Bruno Mars, Cee Lo Green, Frank Sinatra, James Brown, Bon Jovi, Steve Perry, Louis Armstrong, Tina Turner, Ella Fitzgerald, Celine Dion, Britney Spears, N Sync, Mötley Crüe, Eric Carmen, Percy Sledge, Warrant, Bush and Katy Perry and many others.
  11. Marathon Man book

    I've discussed this with my co-author Ken Sharp. We certainly have enough new material to make an updated edition worth every penny. Just need to find the time to get it done! Bernie

  15. Paul McCartney "Fuh You"

    Hey Nancy! Crank it up! Bernie PS: Man that ending had the hair on my arms standing up straight!!! Joe English is hitting those drums so hard it's like a sledgehammer is hitting you in the gut! And who else but McCartney could belt out those notes! And Denny is up off his piano seat! And Jimmy—he's the only guy playing guitar but it sounds like three guys are playing! Whoa! PPS: That incredible smile Paul gives Linda at 1:43 says, "Screw everybody that doesn't want me to be in a band with my wife. I love looking over there on stage and seeing you there!"
