What’s the story, Bern?...Is Eric officially retired?...What happened to that solo show he was gonna do but couldn’t find a proper date because Streisand was booked in the place already...Does he ever get the urge to do something “live” after these one shot appearances like this Ringo anniversary thing?...or does he have nothing left(songwriting wise)...The Winter Dreams albums contained very few “new songs” with older things and some covers...Why on earth did they go into a studio in L.A. and record covers during the reunion tour...?Why bother?...And the IWBWY remake on VH1?...Did the network want an older song?...It seemed like a perfect opportunity to showcase something new...

My guess is he’s has some sort of “writer’s block” and is not interested enough to bust through it...

Lew, while you're waiting for Bernie to chime in...a couple of observations: 

I think Brand New Year came pretty easily to Eric, so the goods are still in him.  The way people listen to music, the way they buy music; the entire music business- Eric has talked about the paradigm shift- that it might not be worth the blood, sweat, and tears to make an album that might not reach his audience and there may not be any $$$ in it for him.  The one thing that might get him back out there for more than a one-night stand would be if Amy wanted to see her rock star hubby shining bright in his own light...
