  1. Chuck Barris R.I.P.

    Lol! Funny! Just as I'm listening to Weird Al's "Amish Paradise", feel badly for EC, but I think he has a sense of humor.

    Re Keith and Chuck: Then Keith inducts him into the R & R Hall of Fame.
  3. Chuck Berry Passes Away At 90

    Despite John Lennon's oft-quoted quip — "If you tried to give rock-and-roll another name, you might call it 'Chuck Berry' " - Berry was an unlikely idol for a burgeoning teen subculture that he sang about at the dawn of the rock era. He was 30, married and the father of two when he made his first recording, "Maybellene" in 1955. The song — a story of a man in a Ford V8 chasing his unfaithful girlfriend in a Cadillac Coupe de Ville — charted No. 1 on Billboard's rhythm-and-blues chart and No. 5 on the pop music charts. From The Hamilton Spectator. No, we never thought the song "My Ding-a-Ling" was what a few folks believed it was. It was about a toy given to a little kid by his grandmother!

  5. Joey Gregorash "Together (The New Wedding Song)"

    Well it's interesting, and I admire Mr. Gregorash for his efforts. Years ago, I attended my kids' cousin's wedding and heard Captain and Tennille's "Wedding Song" by a member of the church. It ran through my mind four days in a row.
  6. Chuck Barris R.I.P.

    I don't love the fact that I remember those days at all, but then again, if I can outrun an almost twenty-year-old old, remember when Justin Trudeau's father was my Prime Minister, and Nixon was replaced by Gerald Ford, life is enjoyable! I'm staying around a lot longer and try to eat as well as I can. In October, I took a fall, bruised and swollen gluteal muscles and could have sued the owners of my building 'cause I know the law. Bob Barker is an animal rights activist today. Remember "People Are Funny" ? Saw it on an old TV console in black and white. Please, somebody bring back the sixties and seventies!
  7. Chuck Berry Passes Away At 90

    Aww... what did he do? In other news, Chuck Barris of The Gong Show" has died. As for Richard Simmons, he isn't dead. He's doing the same thing as Greta Garbo did, and Gene Hackman. These people need time out of the limelight. When you've had paparazzi and fans surrounding you, you need to have a private life. I just look at the pictures, smile, put on the music. I promise, I'll stop nagging Mr. Carmen.

    Captain Kirk hails from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Good shot anyway, Bernie. William Shatner, dual citizen. Oh, brother...
  10. Orchestra 88 project

    Trump is the man who needs to be impeached. The man is a businessman, gone bankrupt several times, grabbed woman by their privates, insulted minorities, and wants his closest neighbors to sell more resources to America with as little money as possible. Several states in the US depend on Canada, we sell our electricity to the north east part of America, and he plays all night on Twitter, insulting everybody, including one of his countries best friends. The 25th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states clearly that if the President is incapable of doing the job well i.e. mental of physical illness, acts of criminality, failure to reveal taxes, fraud, et al, the Vice President is next in line for the job of President. He owns a lot of property even in Canada! We need jobs and homes, and he does not care. I'm near the border, and in 1972, Richard M. Nixon was impeached because he was found guilty of many wrong doings, like taping the opposition party's meetings. Why do I know more American history than Canadian? We're having our 150th birthday this year, and America is over 100 years older than Canada. Back to Orchestra 88 Project and music, please.

  18. The Essential Eric Carmen / Complete Track Listing

    Maybe because just like families, groups feel they need to 'cut the apron strings' and find new things to do. Groups, just like families, do have their disagreements, and still end up being successful. At one time, we had an "Ask Eric" forum. Bernie is the one to ask if Eric isn't available.
  19. Eric's Tweets

    Well, at least you and Eric got some people off of the Garage Sale nagging jag. BTW, when is it going to happen? Just 'cause I'm saving for a home doesn't mean I can't spend some money for the cause. Okay, okay, once I get on my feet again, I'll become a supporter, I promise. I love the tweets! Make more sense than you know who's incomprehensible tweets.
