Hi Eric,

Thanks for the brutally frank, yet definitive answer to my question. The three times I saw you and the band during the 2005 - 2007 reunion gigs (B.B. Kings (second show), Atlantic City, and the first at the Highline Ballroom) I had the feeling something that good couldn't last. As great as those gigs were, I'm sorry I was right.

Peace,

Jeff

That being said, thanks again for the reunion 'tour', and I hope you had some fun along the way. It was for your fans. Hope to see your solo shows sometime soon.

So exactly what are you saying?

That there is still a light at the end of the tunnel?

A small ray of hope shimmering through the dark clouds?

So, what you're saying is the band is:

Boinked (Slang for bounced)
Kaputt (You should know what that is)
Slammed, (like putting a top on a 'pressure cooker' that people use to cook vegetables and only steam comes out the top).
Stuffed (As in put that thing where you want it..I guess that really leaves a lot to the imagination).
Muffed (I hope I'm not making up a word- As in the lid is put on it).
Reamed (A little 'pokey', because they've gone through it all).
Sexed out (Hey, I just thought of that moments ago-- As in, "Let me recover", because I'm just beginnig to "Rev-it-up."

Uh, humm. Well, I have go swimming and to buy a book. (Trying to keep a straight face).

No way I could pick just one as the "best"... the first Cleveland show was a dream. My first time ever seeing Raspberries live, I was like a teenager again. Met lots of you wonderful folks at that show. Pretty sure I didn't take a breath after Eric sang the first note ! :)

Chicago was BEAUTIFUL ! Cold, yes, but the heat was ON at the HOB that night.

It was a dreamy, very " castle-like" venue, and the band was PERFECT !

BBKings...both shows were AWESOME !

But of all the shows I was able to attend, I think my favorite Raspberries show was L.A. I can't really put my finger on why....pretty sure it wasn't the crowd surfer :blink:... but a great time/concert/memory !!

But then, really....I'd give anything to have a do-over of any of them !! :D

I was there and had my picture taken with the band. That was me with the Royal Blue pants, and that shirt. Yes, I'm on that DVD recorded concert on Sunset, too.

At the Chicago HOB show. I've been to many concerts and thats as close to a perfect show as I've ever seen. Can only imagine the energy the early shows must have generated. Even Eric cracked a smile during the "radio" simulation of overnight sensation... wonder if he was having one of those "good as it gets" moments...
