  3. Haha- Whitecastle in last place- perhaps because of the 'vibe' they give off?
  4. This was on the most excellent 6 cd compilation 'Ericcarmenundercover' that Bernie put together...not bad.
  5. Copy Cat?

    We were watching Eddie and the Cruisers II tonight (I'm a little behind on movie watching LOL), and Eddie starts this jam session- see if the intro doesn't sound familiar-

  10. The Most Annoying Songs Of All Time

    I like It’s a Small World also, but you can’t get it out of your head, that’s what makes it annoying.
  11. The Most Annoying Songs Of All Time

    How did "It's A Small World" not make this list?
  12. Find of the Year!

    It was on youtube this morning...
  13. Critic compiles Top 100 lps of all time

    Meh...too much emphasis on 80's groups- it's hard to put the current (80's) groups in historical perspective during the time they're rockin' the charts. Any top 100 list without 'Starting Over' on it misses the mark.
  14. Lew, you're going to share this review on the Sweet message board, right? LOL!
  15. Old Newspaper clipping

    Hadn't read that one before- thanks!

  18. REO....

    From your lips to Eric's ears!
  19. Gorgeous George

    Used to watch wrestling in the 60’s. Freddy Blassie (“Pencil-necked geeks“), Bo Bo Brazil (with his coco butts), and the like. Super corny but entertaining.
  20. Can We Guess Them?

    Lew is crying because you invalidated his response 🤪
  21. Can We Guess Them?

    Octopuses Garden has 8 green thumbs...
  22. RICKRESOURCE 10 JANUARY 1999 THE RASPBERRIES MEET JOHN LENNON By Peter McCormack Rickenbacker Articles No Comments Raspberries and Rickenbackers Wally Bryson, guitarist with the Raspberries played one of two Rickenbackers he owned on two of the group’s greatest hits namely: “I Wanna Be with You” and “Let’s Pretend.” These songs were written by Eric Carmen for the Rickenbacker 12 string as this is said to be a sound that he always loved. This love continues to the present day as Eric apparently bought a Rickenbacker 12-string at the Guitar Center in the mid 80’s. A photograph acquired recently shows Eric playing a Rickenbacker 12 string at one of the Raspberries last performances. Scott McCarl played a Rickenbacker bass similar to Paul McCartney’s 4001. Photographs of Eric Carmen and Scott McCarl playing Rickenbackers follow this text. Persistent attempts to obtain Raspberries’ fine guitarist Wally Bryson playing a Rickenbacker have been unsuccessful to date.

It was quite the introduction with Eric hitting John in the face with the men’s room door. Eric and Raspberries’ drummer Mike McBride were invited by Lennon to hand-clap in the background for the Harry Nillson track “Loop de Loop” on the “Pussycats” album. John Lennon is said to have loved the Raspberries album and rumour has it that John assisted the group with the mix of their song “Overnight Sensation.” The Raspberries had a poster in their recording studio that Lennon painted over including eyeglasses and other swirls of color, signing it at the bottom. Surprisingly, none of the group members took the poster home from the studio and its current whereabouts remains unknown. Rumoured Lennon Rickenbacker It had been rumoured for some time that Lennon was so taken with the Raspberries’ music and Eric Carmen’s interest in the Rickenbacker 12 string that he present a member of the Raspberries with a Rickenbacker 360/12 Fireglo. It was not possible to document this through any written source either than the interesting comments made in preparation for a Bonham’s Auction. Repeated visitations to the site were unable to determine whether the instrument was purchased, and if so, for what amount. The photograph and particulars of the instrument and the auction are presented here. Rumored 360/12 Fireglo presented to Raspberries 1967 GI 3950 used in Nillson Album recorded at Record Plant Bonham’s Auction Lot 762 Raspberries’ Reaction All of the previous members of the Raspberries have a busy schedule and of their email response to date only one has commented the “Rumoured Lennon Rickenbacker.” After sometime Eric Carmen graciously responded to my query about the instrument. A quote from Eric was received late in 1998 and was as follows: Thus ends the story and speculation regarding yet another Rickenbacker guitar owned by John Lennon.

  23. A new nugget of info for Kirk...

    Lew, good find! This looks familiar, but I can't say for sure that at least part of it isn't new...
