    Another great set list! Such dedication from Eric’s musical friends from Japan to honor him every year with a concert on his birthday! Bernie
  2. This month, we're celebrating 20 years of EricCarmen.com! There will be something new posted each and every day for the next 20 days! ERIC CARMEN - BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA (UNRELEASED) Today's goodie? "Devil." 'Nuff said. Bernie

    Happy Birthday! Bernie
  4. 20 Years of Eric Carmen.com - Day 11

    When I first heard this I just about exploded! I probably prefer the earlier demo without the backing instruments, but it's hard to deny that this is pretty INCREDIBLE! Bernie
  5. Nicky Wonder, RIP

    Nikky in action. Bernie
  6. Nicky Wonder, RIP

    Here's a photo I took of Eric mixing "Brand New Year" in 2013 with Darian Sahanaja (right) and Nicky Walusko (left), aka Nicky Wonder—who just passed away at 59. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/nicky-wonder-brian-wilson-wondermints-guitarist-dead-at-59-obituary-868888/ Such sad news! Nicky was a member of The Wondermints and was a major force in Brian Wilson's band, where he sang and played guitar for many years. RIP, Nicky! My condolences to your family and friends. Bernie
  7. Shaun Cassidy’s Opener

    Hard to believe that he hasn't performed in 40 years, 'cause this is damned good! https://www.instagram.com/p/Bx5P_0bjMAO/?utm_source=ig_web_options_share_sheet Bernie
  8. She Did It play along

    Eric confirmed to me on a number of occasions that he does not have a falsetto. He'd just full-out hit the notes, which is pretty remarkable! Bernie
  9. At The Record Plant

    This week's rare photos are from the private collection of Jim Bonfanti and take us back to the glory days of Raspberries circa 1972. The first photo shows Record Plant engineer Shelly Yakus at the mixing console during a recording session for Raspberries' first Capitol LP. Shelly worked alongside producer Jimmy Ienner and assistant engineer Dennis "The Fly" Ferrante at New York City's Record Plant, where all four Raspberries LPs were recorded. The second photo shows a promotional Record Plant "wooden nickle" that Jim has kept in his possession for the past 35 years. The third photo is a terrific snapshot of Wally Bryson holding his personal copy of the group's first gold record for Raspberries' smash hit "Go All The Way." Bernie

  15. I have a complete unused kit in great condition. It’s a spiral-bound heavy cardboard booklet that features several mobiles—each picturing a different full-sized Arista album cover. Bernie
