  1. Eric coming to Midland, MI??

    Midland rules! "On The Rocks" was my fave album from the past year and from what I've heard from the new album it'll be my fave of this year as well!
  2. I love just about everything Our Hero has put out but this has always been my fave of all his album. Solid from front to back, there's not a song that I skip nor anything I ever get tired of listening to. I might have to bust this out now and give it a spin while trying to figure out if this is the first online post I've ever written where I used the word "Nor".....
  3. You cannot listen to this version...

    Twenty-Five seconds in and I'm trying to decide what the best part of the video is. Is it: 1. The coughing she does before the song starts 2. The pained expression on her face as she *ahem* sings 3. The voice that only one with no ears can truly love But, hey, gotta give her an "A" for effort. Either that or the guts to post it, you decide.... PS: Made it 30 seconds before I had to shut it off. A little pain never hurt anybody but you gotta draw the line somewhere......
  4. "The rumors of my demise are greatly exaggerated". Alive and well, just always tied up by what the late, great Prince referred to as "this thing called life". It's nice to be missed, by the way! Cheers to you all!!
  5. Top Down Summer (2018)

    The smile on my face while groovin' to these gems is a mile wide right now....
  6. Only if you're desperate

    I haven't decided which was worse: - His wig - His studded wristbands - His "Nerd" glasses - His water buffalo bellowing voice - His water buffalo bellowing voice with that accent - His water buffalo bellowing voice with that accent cracking or..... - The 0:40 to 0:44 mark when he caresses his own chest Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue........
  7. Raspberries in Rock Hall

    You guys beat me to it! Was going to post the fotos I took Friday night! B@stards! LOL
  8. Another "Hall of Fame" in Ohio....

    OMG - I NEED to take a trip here. I'm liable to feel like I've dies and gone to Heaven.......
  9. Two Words: Rollerskating Girls

    Simply the best version of this song I've ever seen.... uh.... meant to say ".....I've ever heard" Yeah, that's what I meant.... I guess.... I think......
  10. 1976 DEMOS

    Just got on and saw this post - WOW! These rule, times ten! Thank you for sharing 'em! Cheers!
  11. Classic Tracks: “All By Myself”

    I could read stories like this all day....
  12. "I Wanna Be With You". The GREATEST Power-Pop song ever written (but "My Sharona" comes pretty darn close!).
  13. Mines always been and always will be "Change of Heart". It feels like I have known the song forever but, years ago, when my first serious girlfriend and I split up I was at work and the local radio station was playing a few of EC's tunes in honour of his birthday that day. This was one of the songs played and it was the first time I truly payed attention to the lyrics and suddenly everything clicked. Years later we got back together again ("sooner or later, I don't know when... " you know the rest) and it was fun while it lasted but it didn't last forever. Oh well.....
  14. Thank you Santa B & Santa H

    I third this emotion! Cheers! :-)
  15. Happy Birthday John Shaft!!

    Thanks for all the kind wishes everybody! All of you rule, times ten! Bernie, you know me too well - of course the hat was with me. I may even be buried with the hat when the time comes
