  1. Happy Birthday, Eric!

    Happy birthday to a pop rock genius --- Eric Carmen! BMP
  2. Eric's solo rankings

    6. Change of Heart 5. Geffen self-titled 4. I Was Born to Love You (or "Winter Dreams", depending on what country you bought it from) (I have the American release, which, unfortunately, lacks his superb "Caroline No" cover.) 3. Arista self-titled 2. Boats against the Current 1. Tonight You're Mine BMP
  3. Hope your day is full of joy, lovely weather and all the blessings you deserve.

    We could have used your talent years ago when our church organist was ill. The fellow member of the congregation tried his best, but Dad, my aunt and myself couldn't wait to leave! It was like Jay Z trying his hand at Handel's Messiah.

      Sorry I just saw this now.  Thank you.

      Yup - 36 years an organist, six at my current church (fairly small Catholic church in Kent County, RI).


  4. Happy Birthday, Eric!

    Happy birthday, Eric! Birthdays happen only once a year, but your music lives on year round! BMP
  5. A striking pose!

    Hard to tell who would have passed for who. I was pushing to emulate Eric (Come on! Get a load of those shoes!) BMP
  6. A striking pose!

    I had just turned 8 when I first heard "Go All the Way" - loved it! Young, yes. But I loved the music, and still do today! L-R, by the way: my brother (then 6), my cousin (then 11), my cousin's neighbor across the street, and yours truly (then 9). BMP
  7. A striking pose!

    I think most of you know which pose we were trying to emulate. Taken in September 1973 by my aunt in her back yard. I'm the goofy looking guy on the right. I was 9 then. I had gotten the "Fresh" album as a 9th birthday gift in July 1973. BMP
  8. Raspberries Reunion - 10th Anniversary

  9. "Go All the Way" Remix

    Anyone see this one? BMP
  10. Happy Birthday, Eric!

    Happy birthday to the man whose "Go All the Way" inspired me to want to be a musician when I was eight years old! BMP (Now a church organist at 51, but still enjoys Eric and Raspberries tunes like they day they were first written)
  11. Dennis Ferrante

    RIP Dennis. Very shocked and saddened by the news. BMP

    Happy Mothers Day to all the moms of ec.com. BMP
  13. Happy Birthday LobsterLvr (Dave)

    Happy birthday! BMP
  14. BMP's teenage daughter and F. Scott Fitzgerald

    My youngest child - my 17-year-old high-school senior daughter - just finished reading "The Great Gatsby" and ENJOYED it. I told her Eric Carmen would be proud and explained to her (as best as I could) the connection between that and "Boats against the Current". BMP
  15. Wally's Mother

    Prayers and condolences to Wally and family. BMP
