  1. Howdy From Texas

    Was checking out a bunch of Badfinger vids, reading up on their history, & thinking back on all the power pop fans here, & decided to check in w folks here. I used to post a lot in the forum here & hope many or most of the same folks are still around. Lots of you I met at the reunion concert in Cleveland at that magnificent theatre downtown, where the Raspberries KILLED and we all had a great time partying before, during, & after the show (I also caught them in LA @ House of Blues reunion show). Hope everyone's been well & can drop in & say hey! - Austinberries
  2. calling all (musical) gearheads + trivia4u

    Man I thought there were a buncha musicians/gearheads on these boards... Not a single guess among the ones around, eh? guess I hafta go back to discussin' politix to get a rise..
  3. "Go All The Way" Live Videos

    ok, that is hilariously funny - tony, u should inject as much ironic accuracy into ur politix!
  4. $67,000 to whoever can name the mfgr of the bass i am playing in the picture (far left) at my signature link below.. on the far right is a guy named JJ - you've heard him play bass before on the impossibly catchy mega-hit 'Kiss Me' by Sixpence None the Richer!
  5. Billy, Paul & Jennifer

    ec quotes: "I miss working with each and every one of them." to which the house replies: "well if u miss them so much, why don't ya (marry them? no..) put on some more 'berries shows!!" ;-) we all know it ain't as easy as it sounds, but life could be worse not having die-hard fans like the 3k or so of us who packed the downtown cleveland theatre not so long ago; hell, we'd do it again, i'd wager!
  6. Cleveland's Original Mop Tops

    wow, so who was singing lead on the beatles cover? wasnt ec, right? oops, never mind, hadnt looked at page 2 of the thread b4 i posted
  7. Mike Edwards (ELO) dies

    easily the weirdest music 'news of the weird' this year. terribly tragic too. what a great band ELO was.. may he have his cello in heaven w/ him.. thx for the music, Mike!
  8. New Raspberries Tribute Album

    i love it, but any version done anywhere by anyone is, let's face it, downhill from the 'berries; still, glad to see 'em pluggin' away at it & keeping the fire burning by wearing their influences proudly on their sleeves! love dude's pronunciation of 'tonight' in the video.. way to go clifford records!
  9. the great Ron Dante..

    dante looks young still, & paul schaeffer intro'ed him as "the guy who opened the door for me to the music biz" or some such accolade cant say i ever knew what the guy looked like, tho i'm sure i saw a pic b4
  10. the great Ron Dante..

    fresh, dont let it kill ya, just pass the peace pipe & know i never meant no harm w/ my colloquial comfort zone, which def doesnt include NJ
  11. the great Ron Dante..

  12. EC in Japan

    i TOTALLY want that hair! luckily, there's enuff for us to split it
  13. the Sweet at it again

    hollies - look at us agreeing on sumthin! u should hear it, its a load of cr*p..
  14. the Sweet at it again

    oops, looks like 1 orig member (steve priest, bass) + a bunch of LA heavy metal guys <groan>. they tout a "new single" which is none other than... a heavy metal version of "i saw her standing there" - color me soured (get it?) & jaded!
  15. the Sweet at it again

    maybe i missed this before, but did y'all know The Sweet is reunited/touring? i think w/ 2 orig members. now there's some power pop for ya, w/ a side of glam. i wonder if EC & the 'berries dug 'em?
