  3. Happy Birthday, Eric!

    Happy birthday, Eric! Birthdays happen only once a year, but your music lives on year round! BMP
  4. 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
  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. Raspberries Reunion - 10th Anniversary

    BMP
  8. "Go All the Way" Remix

    Anyone see this one? BMP
  9. 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)
  10. Dennis Ferrante

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

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

    Happy birthday! BMP
  13. 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
  14. Wally's Mother

    Prayers and condolences to Wally and family. BMP
  15. Go All The Way - 10th Anniversary LIVE!

    Killer audio, even better than the CD from LA (which is still really good). Nice crunchy guitars! Thanks, Bernie, for posting. Happy Thanksgiving to all here! BMP
  16. Choose a song for Eric Carmen to sing

    "Friday on My Mind" by the Easybeats comes to mind, especially with the "Tonight... tonight..." of which a similar rendition surfaces in the unreleased by fantastic "Oh Tonight". BMP
  17. New Girl

    Hi Susie. Welcome aboard. BMP
  18. Happy Birthday, Eric!

    Happy birthday, Eric! Enjoy! BMP

    Marathon Man - with an orchestra - yeah, baby! BMP

  21. *HAPPY BIRTHDAY Lovely Larisa*

    Happy birthday! BMP
  22. Bob McBride

    Hi Kelly. Sorry to hear about your dad's passing. I do remember him and your uncle with Cyrus Erie. What is your Uncle Mike up to these days? Anything musical? BMP
  23. Your Favorite Lines in Raspberries/Eric Songs

    One more favorite lyric: "Bop om doo don oo mop shoop!" That lyric needs to be PATENTED, let alone copyrighted. BMP
  24. Your Favorite Lines in Raspberries/Eric Songs

    Also: "Here comes tomorrow, it's later than you think. You blew your brains out in the bathroom sink..." ("You Need Some Lovin'", from "Tonight You're Mine") BMP
  25. Your Favorite Lines in Raspberries/Eric Songs

    In a Raspberries tune: "I'm gonna make you sweat 'till the sheets are wet, now don't say I didn't warn ya!" - All Through the Night (E. Carmen/M. McBride) In an Eric Carmen tune: Pretty much the entire second verse of "Last Night" "I waited for the phone to ring, and when it didn't, I turned on the Carson show. I lit another cigarette and dialed your number, but there was no one at home." BMP
