Eric Carmen: Marathon Man

Recommended Posts

Eric - have you ever considered doing a second edition to your book so those of us fans who were a little late in getting here could read it? I'd be really interested!

And while you're doing a second edition, please include a new lengthy chapter or two on the Raspberries reunion, new live CD, etc. (and, if possible, a photo of you strangling Tony C. in LA!)....(we fans are so damn greedy!!!)

Although the "Tonight!" book was more Raspberries-focused, it was somewhat of a 'Part 2.' We now need a 'Part 3.'

So JohnO -- was the "strangling Tony" event before or after the gig at Sunset Strip??

Does anybody have pics of this?

Can we incorporate pics into LA area flyers to help sales??

The strangulation was just before the LA show, at the meet and greet. I knew the meeting of EC and TC would be an event, so was watching closely, and am one of a roomful of witnesses. No photos have surfaced yet.

I didn't even know who Tony C. was at the time, but still thoroughly enjoyed it!

Had there been pictures of this attempted strangling readily available, it would have been great to include them in the CD booklet....if for no other reason, to raise the question -"who is this man, and why is Eric throttling him?")

There's a picture with Tony and the band in the "Meet & Greet" photos section. Why do I think that I saw the strangulation photo somewhere? Is it possible that Bernie or someone else posted it at one time?

I'm surprised that this generated so many posts.

Maybe I'm better asking questions than stating facts!!!

I've always said that "sometimes when you ask the BIG QUESTIONS, you get the BIG ANSWERS"!!

The sound of a harp and and cloudy image bubble appearing over my head - Marisa Miller and Jennifer Biel standing behind Eric cheering him on. Oh, and nice duds girls!

If a photo does exist, my lawyers are holding it till said defendent, Eric Carmen successfully completes his 4th comeback to the top of the music charts, and runs out of room to store royalty cash and gold in his underground estate vaults (Kirk and I have seen them).

At that time, said defendent, Eric Carmen will be more open to a generous settlement for the brutal assault allegations depicted in this 2005 Sunset Strip incident.

So, while I'm waiting for Eric's latest comeback, I will continue my chiropractic and Asian massage parlor neck and other treatments, and work on "Photoshopping" Eric into pictures as Michael Vick's pitbull trainer for my next money extortion case...

That ought to get a couple of paragraphs in Bernie and Ken's "Marathon Man" sequel. :cool:

Tony : I hope you haven't paid your attorneys a hefty retainer because the statute of limitations for bodily injury in California is two years. Also, don't just say "yea" to whatever the asian masseur or masseuse asks you. Be certain you understand.

That was such a great show..( I mean the concert, not the strangulation haha , but that WAS really funny !) Can't wait to re-live it via DVD/CD !!

Regarding that photo...I DO seem to remember seeing something...but I think it was just as the color was returning to Tony's face after Eric had loosened his grip !! ;) Ahh....memories !
