I've been curious to know what kind of music/artists Eric's fans listen to when they're not listening to Eric's music. It would be interesting to see if there are some similarities in taste in music beyond EC. I love a lot of 70s and some 80s-era rock and pop music. I've also discovered I really enjoy Lindsey Buckingham's stuff within Fleetwood Mac and solo (his 1992 album is a delight). If I have only the radio, I have to confess that as much as I used to hate country music, I've been listening to it lately since much of what else is on the radio is so repelling. Let me know what you're listening to! Thanks!
Whether it's soft ballads or hard rock, the common denominator here seems to be melodius artists. Kyle Vincents "Arianne" is as fine as they come. I've heard him cover the Raspberries, and that too, was delightful.
Bernie, did you read the same bit that I did where Clive Davis was talking about Michelle Branch? Kind of reminded me of the way he talked of Eric when he first signed him. Eric was going to be Clive's giant slayer, and Clive put him in pretty good company when he mentioned Eric along with Paul McCartney and Elton John in the same sentence! Kirk.
