  1. James, I don't know if he would be considered a 'member' or if he was just performing with them. I know it's a sore spot with Wendy, who's married to Ian- who was a member of the Bay City Rollers. Then again, Ian is kind of a sore spot with other BCR fans because he was only with them for one album- can't make everybody happy I guess...
  2. Kyle is a talented guy who is a fan of Eric's and has done a few Eric/'berries covers. But, more than that, he's written some very catchy pop tunes of his own. 'Arianne' is a must listen! Kyle has done a few in-your-living-room concerts for several of the people on the message board here, so he's got a solid fan base on EC.com.
  3. Really nice cover of Waiting:
  4. Andrew Gold unreleased

    That was a really strong tune! Good find!!

    So Lew, you haven't found it either?
  6. Song Literally Too Commercial

    Off the top of my head, was it "We've Only Just Begun"? I seem to remember it was used for a bank commercial and a hit for the Carpenters.
  7. Chart Trivia

    How about the A and B side both went to #1?
  8. Chart Trivia

    Songs dropped off the chart, only to reappear at a later date and reclaim #1?
  9. Thank You, Bernie!!!!

    He's hearing it from your lips...
  10. Brain Teaser

    I got it. Try again, James.

    Wow, candle in the wind...snuffed out.

    I think some of this is influenced by when you discovered Raspberries and Eric and what was going on in your life at the time. I was falling in love summer of ‘72 when I discovered Raspberries. I’m pretty sure both Bernie and James discovered Eric solo first. That’s an intangible you can’t minimize.

    Just went through the Raspberries catalog and Eric solo catalog to see which songs I couldn't live without. As is typical with Eric's albums, there is very little filler anywhere in his catalog, so, just going by sheer volume, there were more songs in his solo output that I had to have. But, it's not that simple. My top 3 songs are all in the Raspberries albums. My "desert island" album has always been "Starting Over", so that gives the nod to Eric's Raspberries contributions, but "Tonight You're Mine" and the 'Geffen' album always rank 2nd and 3rd for my desert island choice. I'm in a quandary. I can't live without either effort- Raspberries or Eric solo- but, if you put a gun to my head...I'll pick Raspberries. Ask me again tomorrow and I'll probably change my mind.

    Actually, I don't think that one has been asked before...let me think on it.
