  1. Don-- Wow! That's something even I didn't know. Kudos to you! --Bernie
  2. Stut5-- I *had* to remove your post. It had nothing to do with content. You typed a continuous line with no word breaks that pretty much screwed up the entire page layout. Most internet browsers simply didn't know what to do with it and the entire page looked screwy. Other posts under this topic *were* removed due to an unusually large number of complaints. I try and keep out of it for the most part but really don't want this place to get ugly. Criticism is fine (and Eric should not be immune to it even here on his official web site), but please keep in mind that Eric *does* read these posts, and act accordingly. We now return to your regularly scheduled Message Board. --Bernie
  3. I've made some changes to the Message Board this morning, introducing a new COMMUNITY sub-head. This area will be for non-Eric posts. Michael Jackson, Orange alert, the Hudson Brothers Razzle-Dazzle Hour, Kennedy assassination theories, what have you. I'll be policing the Board and transferring all non-Eric related posts there. Oh, and I'm also going to clean up some of the cruder posts that have been appearing here lately. I've received several complaints from regular visitors about some of the content expressed here. So, please keep it civil...okay? --Bernie
  4. I did ask him the "Tonight You're Mine" album cover question...but you'll have to wait to find out his answer. --Bernie :-)
  5. Hey Ria-- Click on MUSIC in the Menu above. You'll find a discography as well as lyrics to all of Eric's songs. --Bernie
  6. Well it's up, and fun for all ages. Check it out! --Bernie
  7. Marvin-- When you say "Pop" music in your post, are you talking about the genre or your dad? :-) --Bernie
  8. Jeff-- I'm really looking forward to transcribing them. The first question is one that I have never seen Eric address! His answer is a detailed breakdown of each of the guitars he has used, from his first through the Raspberries into his solo years and today. --Bernie

    Ask Eric

    Heads up! I'll be posting a new ASK ERIC column this weekend. Eric picked some good questions to answer this round. I think you'll find his answers very interesting. --Bernie
  10. George Harrison at Madison Square Garden in 1974...I think that was the first one. --Bernie
  11. First single: "Valleri" by the Monkees First album: "McCartney" by, well...McCartney My second album was "Let It Be", which I believe was released just after McCartney's first solo LP. I remember reading about a rift between Paul and the others over his album being released first. Bernie
  12. I believe that a shortened version of the Berries first appearance on Kirshner has been replayed on VH-1 already, so it may eventually appear again. As far as I know, the Midnight Special performance (which featured the band live and rockin' -- not mouthing to canned hits) has NEVER been shown anywhere since it was first aired! --Bernie
  13. I'm pretty sure there's a happy ending :-) --Bernie
  14. Hi all-- I uploaded two new chapters of The Eric Carmen Story today with a twist...each chapter features a short MP3 file to illustrate the story. If you like how it works, let me know. If enough people agree I'll go back and add something to each of the earlier chapters, too. --Bernie
  15. I loved that song and even worked up a TAB on it. I can e-mail it you anyone who wants to play it on the guitar. The Parthenon Huxley part requires a bit of finger gymnastics, but there's an alternate Kyle fingering if you have a capo. --Bernie
  16. Heh! I wrote 90% of both of those books. For the first one, my boss took top billing. I got even on book #2. --Bernie
  17. ...not to mention the cool prizes coming up when we hit 400,000! --Bernie
  18. I created the celebrity milk mustache print ads and have done every single one of them and have also done television commercials for the campaign (although there are a number of other people who work on that part of the business as well). --Bernie
  19. Well, I managed to pound out two more chapters! It should take me to just before the release of Winter Dreams, so I'm in the homestretch now. Look for it sometime this weekend. You can also look for my Super Bowl milk ad in USAToday this Friday as well as a bunch of magazines next week. --Bernie
  20. Ummm....I'm flying out to San Diego today and will attempt to put the finishing touches on the last few chapters of The Eric Carmen Story --Bernie
  21. Eric's speaking voice is a whole lot lower than his singing voice. I think I'll try and find a cool interview with Eric to put up for the next MP3 file. --Bernie
  22. Check out "Boys and Girls" by Good Charlotte. It's getting a pretty decent amount of airplay here at home :-) Pretty catchy in a sort of powerpop meets punk 2003 sort of vein. The band is currently being promoted on "spankin' new bands week" over on MTV. --Bernie
  23. That question is already on the list...Eric has the next batch of questions, so an ASK ERIC update should be coming soon! --Bernie
  24. I'm just not buying Bill Clinton playing his sax as the top music moment in television history. I'm also not buying Michael Jackson's Moonwalk at #2 or the Beatles on Ed Sullivan at #3. My picks would be: 1. Beatles on Sullivan; 2. Jackson's Moonwalk -- evertything after that is up for grabs, but those two events in that order seem to fit for me. I don't think Clinton's Arsenio appearance would be in my Top 20. --Bernie
  25. Mike-- Congratulations! And nice choice on the Eric pic! --Bernie PS: Don't forget, I work in advertising, so spelling brand names comes second nature
