  1. Clive on Eric

    There may be other tidbits, but since I haven't read it I can't tell it. But... Amazon has a review of the the new Clive Davis book "The Soundtrack of My Life" and gives his comments on 12 smash hits. He lists "All By Myself" at #4 and says: "I flew to Cleveland back in the day to meet Eric Carmen and hear the songs he wanted to launch his solo career after leaving the Raspberries. The first song he played for me was “All By Myselfâ€. I was knocked out by the song and the performance. This was a potential classic if I ever heard one and so I signed Eric right away." (edit: Oh, just saw Bernie's post about this on a different thread)
  2. Partial Raspberries Reunion October 22, 2011?

    Be sure to say "hi". I'll be there.
  3. I did a shoot for The Explorers Club this past weekend. In talking to the lead singer/writer I found out he is apparently not only a Beach Boys fan, but a Raspberries fan. He says in the next album, out in July, there is a Raspberries influenced tune. I can't wait to hear it. Here is a sample of their Beach Boys influence... http://soundcloud.com/expclub/the-explorers-club-forever
  4. Sorry. I just thought it was funny. I know it's not about religion, politics, or UFOs, but I found it entertaining. If it is disturbing we can have it removed.

    Happy Birfday! Hope to see you before the next show!
  7. I'm Officially Retired

    Palin/Cheney may declare war on them and have their leaders hanged/beheaded. Don't wait too long.
  8. Now THIS is interesting!

    The MySpace site says of "(I've Had) The Time Of My Life"—"the other demo version is a sharp new remix of the No. 1 blockbuster by its original producer, the renowned Michael Lloyd". I guess the notes failed to mention "tweaking" aka "a sharp new remix" of another tune... "Hungry Eyes".
  9. Happy Birthday, PAUL SIDOTI !! *May 13*

    I wish you the best! GT
  10. It Seemed So Easy

    One of the nicest guys ever.

    I can't believe some of what got in before the DC5 or the Hollies. I'ma fan. See toward the bottom
  12. Bernie got banned

    Bernie got banned from Facebook. Well, sorta. There is a news story that MILK is banned from being promoted on Facebook. The headline is: "GOT MILK? Not on Facebook". For any newcomers, that slogan is Bernie's brainchild
  13. Five Years Ago

    Here are some shots from that night in 2004. Seems like a few months ago.
  14. John is a fan, and as I recall made an appearance on Reflections:Side 3, a tribute to the Raspberries.
  15. Harper Simon

    This is his first album. A bit pop, a bit country. Voice has the genetics of his dad on some cuts. Some great folks help on this album. http://music.myspace.com/index.cfm?fusea...lbumid=13843476
