  2. Happy Birthday Kazumi

    This one's for you since I can't speak Japanese.
  3. Happy Birthday Kazumi

    I had her confused with somebody else who seldom posts. So tired and it's raining again. My bad. Murphy's Law's Fault.
  4. Happy Birthday Kazumi

    Many hours ago, and I'm not certain since I went to my doctor's office and my bank today, I did see her avatar as she had signed in for a few moments. Her profile revealed less than 100 posts. Must be shy?
  5. Rush Sucks

    Bumping, but I'd like to inform everybody not all Canadians love Rush. Must be an acquired taste, like Lady Gaga. (Ick). Molson? No. Labatts Blue anytime over that (insert expletive here). Five Blues and I am totally stewed and smiling. No fair making fun of Canadians. We are good neighbors, really.
  6. Eric Carmen Birthday Live 2017 Vol.1 Vol.2

    I'd love to see Burton Cummings of The Guess Who, but he is very busy still writing, producing and recording. The guy can vocalize most other singers spot on,and learned mostly the same way Eric Carmen did. Naeko, thank you from a wonderful 'flash from the past'. Talent like that is rare these days. EC, where are you?
  7. Eric'c B-day card

    Darlene, wearing that mustard seed necklace means you have a of of faith. Something we all need to hold on to, especially these days.
  8. Eric'c B-day card

    Thanks to Kirk and circumstances within our control, Eric Carmen got his birthday card! Should we send Interpol to find the other members who did not wish him Happy Birthday on this site? No, nobody should draft a book titled "The Death of............Forum" yet.
  9. Many legendary musician had been hosted by Le Studio in the Laurentian Mountains. The most famous rock singers, bands and folk singers were, and until 2008 they made use of it. *A fire this Thursday morning has destroyed Le Studio, a historic recording studio nestled in Quebec's Laurentian Mountains, about 90 kilometres northwest of Montreal, whose legendary former clients include Rush, David Bowie and The Police. Provincial police received a call about the blaze around 5:30 a.m. Firefighters found evidence at the scene that suggests the fire may have been purposely set, Radio-Canada reports.* (French Canadian version of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation). David Bowie, Rush, April Wine, and many more put out over 150 albums from that studio in the 70s and 80s. The cause has yet to be determined, but arson is suspected.
  10. Abandoned Quebec Recording Studio Burned Down

    It sure is. Last night as I was trying to post the story, I had an open tab for one of Paul Anka's musical videos and had to ask for help to remove it, or folks would have seen "Let Me Get to Know You." These days, it seems with that fire, wildfire out west, city floods, my mistakes, we Canadians are batting a thousand. We takes things in stride. The recording artists must be rather unhappy. It's nickname was 'Rush's Abbey Road'!
  11. Happy Birthday, Marlene!!!!

    Enjoy your birthday as much as you can. Hopefully your friends and family have given you all the presents and love you deserved and the weather is beautiful. I cannot do emoticons quite well or send you a virtual cake, but I shall dedicate a song for you! Craig Ruhnke's Summer Girl
  12. Happy Birthday, Eric Carmen!!!!!!!!

    Eric, just relax and do whatever you'd love to do. Your fan base is large and hopes to see you back here soon.
  13. Glen Campbell Dead Age 81

    * Glen Campbell, the grinning, high-pitched entertainer who had such hits as Rhinestone Cowboy and spanned country, pop, television and movies, has died. He was 81. Campbell's publicist Sandy Brokaw says the singer died Tuesday morning in Nashville. No cause was immediately given. Campbell announced in June 2011 that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and that it was in its early stages at that time. Campbell was one of the biggest stars of the late 1960s and 1970s. He sold more than 45 million records, had 12 gold albums and 75 chart hits. He co-starred with John Wayne in the 1969 movie True Grit and had a weekly audience of some 50 million people for the Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour on CBS from 1969 to 1972.* Mr. Campbell's last album. "Adios", has been released. Sources: CBC News Online. Updates upcoming. Eight children! Where'd he find the time?
  14. Glen Campbell Dead Age 81

    No intention of changing the subject, but Burton collaborated with Rick Nelson as well. Glen Campbell's last song, "I'm Not Gonna Miss You", was meant for his offspring and most likely the fanbase. We can make Alzheimer's old history. I believe his soul will indeed miss those he cared about.
  15. Eric'c B-day card

    I'll second that, Kirk. Wakey wakey Mr. Hogya!
  16. Glen Campbell Dead Age 81

    One dude who shall be remembered for manners, decency and talent.
  17. Voice of Rocky the flying squirrel dies

    The person who wore the 200 pound costume to portray Godzilla has passed away at age 88. Haruo Nakajima. Anybody who knows their history would recall people were building bomb shelters fearing nuclear war during the mid-fifties. Godzilla was an irradiated lizard, a mythical creature. I don't want to read about North Korea trying this sort of thing. (Typing this under my concrete, lead-lined bed. Hopefully the kids have theirs, too.)
  18. Hear me (Let me) Ou-ooot!

    Raspberries was a group of 'epic' proportions and now I'm stymied, and craving raspberries. Maybe Todd Rundgren has some! They are in season right now. You know you walked into that one I bet Mr. Carmen and Mr. Rundgren mutually respect each other.
  19. Voice of Rocky the flying squirrel dies

    You are healing. Remember that. Even these days I cannot read the news. Some folks have no right to make babies or babysit. We can always get Natasha (with another actress's voice since June Foray played Rocky and Natasha) and... My Dad raised me a fighter. Somebody here in the house stepped on my foot deliberately, and her blooming shin still hurts. I didn't get punished for defending myself. Just because I pay rent doesn't mean anybody on staff owns me. (I do half their job as they're lazy). Made for good comic relief, I must say.
  20. Goldy McJohn (Steppenwolf) dies

    "Born to Be Wild" comes to mind whenever certain motorcycle gangs in our area ride around in their colors. These days, they're just having fun, unless you mess with them. Actually, they'll do a ride to raise funds for the Christmas drive, too, and that surprised me. Later, I may need to bump this thread for a well-known rocker who's releasing another album in September.
  21. Voice of Rocky the flying squirrel dies

    Anne, just forget the grandparents. God will avenge that. You have the strength and intelligence to recall what somebody once wrote: 'Bad things happen to good people.' I had my sister fined for not settling the parental estate, and I didn't have to sign off executing the flipping will, but thought, being on disability, I'd be cut off of Social Assistance, and I was totally wrong! Through therapy three decades ago, I learned to cut the wheat from the chaff and live a fuller life. I know you're a fighter. I am, and seeing as nobody has the guts to do so, I'm on the governments head to have my lodging home and retirement homes set straight on how to treat the homeless, middle-aged and elderly about health and nutrition. I'd love to see unprocessed foods!
  22. Hear me (Let me) Ou-ooot!

    Now now, we Canadians love our neighbors dearly. In The English language there are limits to words for nouns, verbs, adverbs, pronouns, adjectives and the like, so why not song titles? Remember the story about George Harrison and the girl group with a certain song? It made for a hilarious song and video, "This Song." Yes, he DID have a sense of humor. I wonder what Todd Rundgren's opinion on this is? (Probably laughing it off over a drink with Burton Cummings). Oh, by the way Bernard, I pronounce the word in the subject title "owt" not "oot". ( Probably caught it from the Buffalo, NY TV shows I watched as a child).
  23. All By Myself Royalties

    Maybe one could try Inside Story (also known as Ask Eric), but it could take a while. I looked else where and found a debate about EC and the Rachmaninoff family. That was settled years ago by the heirs, and someone mentioned 15% of the royalties still go to the descendants. Our guy in Cleveland is both music and money machine. (Lay off Celine. Your twins need you. Write another cheque to Eric Carmen while you're making supper right now.)
  24. Hear me (Let me) Ou-ooot!

    Arista released "No Hard Feelings" in 1975. Hmm.. lots of companies and artists.
  25. Hear me (Let me) Ou-ooot!

    Todd Rundgren's "Couldn't I Just Tell You" was purportedly released in 1972; Eric Carmen's "No Hard Feelings" was purportedly released in 1977. This question means some research about when both were written, tunes and lyrics. (No, Spell Check, I did not spell Todd's name incorrectly. Get a tune up.) In this universe there are coincidences. On a side note, I agree with the artists' opinion about how those radio stations play the game. Nasty.
