  1. GREAT Record Sequels!

    As much as I love GATW, "I Wanna Be With You" is equally as great.
  2. Raspberries on "Deep Tracks"

    Just heard GATW today on the '70's channel. Been waiting a while to hear them so I could set them as a "favorite". Mission accomplished.
  3. R&R HoF Nominees for 2015

    This gets worse each year. To nominate "newer bands" over the plethora of classic, worthy bands is a disgrace. To include such blatant non-rock bands like NWA & Chic is also mind boggling. No one's going to even care in a few years if this nonsense continues.
  4. Boats' Secret Weapon: David Wintour

    I,too, always loved David's playing on the Boats LP. His playing on the bridge of Marathon Man is so brilliant. I also love his work on She Did It. So melodic yet never obtrusive to the song. Questions for Eric- Was David in any bands prior or post working with you? Is he still active as a session player?
  5. Raspberries Finished?

    This project would also make a great album. Maybe Eric could include a favorite cover tune like "God Only Knows" or "Walk Away Renee".
  6. Raspberries Finished?

    Great to hear this! So many Eric songs that could be done with the orchestra. e.g.- Starting Over, Let's Pretend, Last Night, Boats, Love is All That Matters.....
  7. Happy Birthday, Eric!

    Happy Birthday Eric. Wishing you and your family all the best!
  8. WINE

    Don't forget the wonderful Ohio wines (specifically here in the northern portion of the state). Vastly underrated with many great wineries peppering the shores and cities surrounding Lake Erie.
  9. Open Letter To Marvin

    Wow, stunned that someone dislikes "The Long and Winding Road". It's probably my favorite. A beautiful song with great lyrics. Just my opinion.
  10. Monkees DON'T Swing :(

    From what I remember reading, he tried to distance himself from The Monkees through all of the '70's and most of the '80's. The four reunited in 1997 and put out an excellent LP called Justus in which they played all the instruments (like on Headquarters). He agreed to this only if a TV or movie deal was involved. Mike toured with the band in England in '97 & reportedly was ripped apart by the press over there ( mostly about his playing). The criticism was absurd- check out YouTube and see that he sounded great! Mike was so stunned that he backed out of a US tour which led to many issues within the band. Davy's death & his subsequent open communication again with Micky & Peter led to talks about reuniting. A shame that is what it took to resolve differences. Mike's son is in the band as well as Micky's sister which probably makes things much more enjoyable for them.
  11. Monkees DON'T Swing :(

    Mike Nesmith is a brilliant artist. Many of his lyrics are incredible. I agree, too, that it is a shame he did not rejoin in the 2000's until Davy's death.
  12. 7 Minutes With Eric Carmen

    Great interview, hate to be negative but 7 minutes was way too short. The countdown timer was making me nervous! I'm thinking,"Give us 15 or 20 minutes. Cut out the pothole segment and extend Eric's time!" So cool to see Eric getting recognition once again.
  13. Open Letter To Marvin

    Nice to hear 8 Days without the Dave Dexter reverb overkill.
  14. Open Letter To Marvin

    Something positive for E. I mentioned to Harry Maslin, who stated that he LOVES the TYM album, that the two of you should work together again. Just a thought & a question. Is it possible that Harry could have been your 'George Martin"? Jimmy I. was great, no doubt, but something about the sound & vibe of your collaboration with Harry seems so special, as if it was a true collaboration. So the question- would you consider working with Harry again?
  15. Open Letter To Marvin

    Have to add my two cents. Eric,I agree, one can only take so much and then you must address the issue. There's no need for someone to start problems with your personal affairs. Your friendships and relationships are your business. Some people cross the line of being a fan. Ignore ignorance.
