  1. My Favorite Part Of My Favorite Song

    I love this song! How the heck Eric got those high notes...yikes! I have no idea! My favorite part is when he sings "were almost there now....hold me! hold me! hold meeee!" OMG! I'm sure you can imagine what that conjures up in my mind!! LOL Ahhhhhhhh! Pj,

  4. Another celebrity death

    I don't want anybody else...when I think about you I touch myself!! I loved that song! Hubby used to tease me when I sang along with the video. Haha! RIP Chrissy. Pj
  5. What Was It Like?

    Hi eric. I wonder what it was like for you in the beginning. Back when you knew you wanted to be in a rock band, and you spent every moment working toward that end. What did that feel like? Did you have any enjoyment during that time, or was it all about working on the next project? I saw a video where all the guys were playing ball, laughing, and enjoying themselves. It struck me that you were not in any of them. I pictured you hold up in some dark hotel room, writing another song. At what point did you relax and start to enjoy yourself? Pj
  6. Boston Bombing.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved, and affected by the Boston bombing. I hope the person is caught quickly, and justice is swift. Lobsterlover, my heart goes out to you, your brother, and best friend. I can only imagine the horror they endured, being at the scene. Wishing you all here a better day. Pj

  8. Bi Bi Clive, Bye Bye Happiness?

    I just read the Bob Lefsetz letter, and all I can say is BRAVO!!! He hit the nail on the head. The problem is, there is nobody in a position to dethrone Davis. As long as he gets to be the "king" of Arista,and the music business, there will never be a change. Pj
  9. Life...

    Thank you so much Kirk. What a beautiful song! I understand the meaning, and love the message. It's true...you never know what God's plan is. You may have to go through something, to reach the other side. Thank you again. Pj
  10. Life...

    Dearest Pat. How I thank you for reading my post, and sending a reply. You are one amazing human being. When I first joined the site, I saw your warm welcome to me, and I looked at your facebook page. I already admired you for your musical talent, and your wonderful personality, but now I admire you even more! You are a very kind and gracious soul. As I read your letter, I was made even more aware of the vibrant spirit that you possess. How I thank you!! It's true what you have said...every word. I should get back into life again. I allowed myself to fall into the abbyss, due to a twist of fate. We go about our day, doing what is expected of us. One day you find that, like a horse put out to pasture, there is nothing more expected. That is when you must start to expect something more from yourself. I hadn't quite realized that, but thanks to you, I now understand it. I will strive to do more, become more engaged in my own life. Perhaps I can keep those daisies from springing up too soon. LOL Your a wonderful person Pat. Good luck to you on your soccer, softball, volleyball coaching! I know you will be great! Keep playing beautiful music, the window to the soul. Belt out that National Anthem like a true hero...because you are one to me. Thank you again my friend. Pj

  12. Life...

    For those of you in your late 50's and early 60's, what does life feel like for you? I used to be full of life. Always busy...too busy. LOL Now, I just feel tired and bored...bored and tired. One thing is for sure, this is not the path I intended to take. Life throws you curve balls, and I got a huge one hurled at me 10 years ago. I had heard people say that events in their life were so unbelievable, that it was like a hollywood movie. I never took much stock in that, till it happened to me. In a short span of time, 6 months, my life turned completely upside down. It sounds like a country music song. LOL I lost my home, car, daughter in law, mother, husband, and dog. My Brother an his Family were kind enough to take me in. Hubby had no insurance, so I was left with nothing. I hadn't planned on being here 10 years, but time has ticked away, and I'm still here. I'm slowly becoming a shut in. Nowhere to go, nothing to do. I wonder what others do to pass the time. Having very bad knee problems, I don't walk unless I have to. The person that I want to be, used to be, is still alive inside of me. I guess I have just given up on myself. How strange it is....I was wearing bell bottom jeans, dancing around, singing about peace and love, with flowers in my hair. Now I'm just waiting to be pushing up daisies. Haha!! Life...it's strange, magical, mysterious, and fleeting. Eric, this might have some song potential. LOL So I go back to my original question...what does life feel like to you? Pj
  13. Eric's Best Books

    Hi Eric. Any ideas in the books? I'm excited to to get started. Thank you Pj
  14. Glad To Find You!

    Yes Wendy, he came!!! So more than my chin is up! Hahaa!!! Pj
  15. Bi Bi Clive, Bye Bye Happiness?

    Eric, you are a class act...no doubt about it. Despite all the headaches and heartaches, you still hold Mr Davis in high regard. I have read almost every post you have written, and you have said nice things about everyone. No matter who's name was mentioned, you would say how great they are, or how much you appreciate them for whatever. That shows me that you are head and shoulders above the rest. Just like the song...better than all the rest. I wonder, at the end of the day, through the highs and lows, ups and downs, would you say...I would do it all again? I hope so, because we would miss out on all the wonderful music you have given us. I for one am greatful for it all. Pj
