  1. Have a happy and HEALTHY New Year

    Steve -- hope you are feeling better. Health is number one -- without it we don't have much. I echo you wishing all on the board a HEALTHY and HAPPY New Year.
  2. Ringo/Santa

    Check out Ringo on the Santa tracker -- http://www.noradsanta.org He is Santa's offical spokesman.
  3. Happy Holidays To All

    A very happy holiday season to all on the board. Keep up the great work Bernie in 2004 --- thank you for all your efforts on this great web site.
  4. Next up: "All By Myself" Rap?

    My first good laugh of the holiday -- thanks Tony. Keep up the good work!
  5. Paul Williams

    Go Bulldogs. Hey Gord, Hartford Wolfpack fan here. Formerly New Haven Nighthawk fan (team disbanded in the 90's). Hockey rocks!
  6. Eric & Play Station

    Dave -- which version? Eric's or Wilson/Reno's.
  7. Be Warned: Mushy Topic

    Julie -- play him the entire Tonight You're Mine CD -- stay away from "My Heart Stops". The only thing that did for Eric was stop a hot streak.
  8. Lets talk about the albums

    I'm not into country either, but I do remember hearing "Maybe My Baby" and I knew Louise Mandrell didn't write it! As for "As Long as We Got Each Other", I liked it --- it was right around the Hungry Eyes and MMLC period.
  9. Lets talk about the albums

    Also around this same time period Eric worked with one of the Mandrell's and re-released the theme from Growing Pains "As long as we got each other" which was also on the country stations around here in the late 80's.
  10. Lets talk about the albums

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that Maybe My Baby was released by one of the Mandrell girls (maybe Barbara) and it was a hit on the country charts...sometime around 1986.
  11. What song deserves a 2nd chance?

    My choice is It Hurts Too Much.
  12. "The Way We Used To Be"

    Quick question: I thought Eric's Geffen release was not out until sometime in 1985. Julie, you reference 1984 -- just wondering -- am I wrong?
  13. Lion King

    Gord -- Bryan did a super job with "Spirit - Stallion of the Cimarron". I highly recommend the movie as well as Bryan's music.
  14. Lion King

    So did Bryan Adams.

    That's seeing them live...not what I typed the first time!

    I'll second that Def Leppard is great. Went to their show here in Connecticut at Wallingford in August. They sounded great, played for three hours. If you like em, I strongly recommend ssing them live.
  17. feelin' guilty

    Nope, it's just not a Canadian thing --- the only EC release I dislike more than WD is Change of Heart...I'm in favor of more releases like Tonight You're Mine. Then again at this point I'll take anything that is new!
  18. Sounds like we need Don Zimmer to come in and cool things down.

    Julie, I think John Waite is one of the most underrated singers out there. Alot of the stuff he did with the Babys is real good. He was on the Ringo tour this past summer.
  20. BaBa Booey

    Things might have been alot different had Eric followed up MMLC with a new album. I'm pretty sure after having Hungry Eyes and MMLC as top ten hits, what ever single he released off a new effort would have received air play, and plenty of it.
  21. Hey Don -- back on the EC Japan concert -- don't feel bad, back in 87 a guy running a sound board at the Dirty Dancing show at New Haven Col. gave me a tape recorded copy of Eric's five songs -- as a favor to another EC fan I sent him a copy -- he tells me I'll never let anyone else hear it -- long story short he sends it off to these two kids that idolized EC in Wisconsin and now everyone has it!!! Should have kept my big mouth shut!!!
  22. What would you give as a present?

    Andy -- any relation to former NHLer Andre Dore ? Knew him when he played here in CT for New Haven/Hartford...believes he still skates for an Adult league around here and owns a home here also.
  23. Happy Birthday, Eric!

    All the best Eric for your birthday --- sorry for being a little late with this message.
  24. Who did the 'berries influence?

    Count the Rubinoos in as being influenced by the Raspberries.
  25. Keyboardists

    I'll add Johathan Cain (Babys/Journey) to the list.
