  1. The Little Rascals story was a ruse...it wasn't how the band got their name. Just something concocted by Eric or Capitol to have a story to tell. Eric was using "Raspberries" as his publishing company many years before that band was formed. And it wasn't even a main Our Gang character who said, "Awww, Raspberries!" It was actually a midget (or "fidget" as Stymie called him!) https://youtube.com/clip/UgkxJrsRfI_Vk4HnRZL2i_UviWFLZ5cLuX11?si=lR3MQ3fk1UtvsarZ
  2. Longtime EricCarmen.com Members can attest to Eric detesting the "fruity" connection Capitol Records dreamed up when it heard the name "Raspberries." What's a lebl to do? Especially when another band already had the perfect logo.

  11. I've decided to lift my embargo that prevented non-Members from reading posts on the Message Board. I have some BIG NEWS that will be announced VERY SOON and want to get as many eyeballs on it as possible. Non-Members still cannot post nor can they see certain sections of the website that are for Members only. 😎
  12. Really happened. Still blows my mind! I was a lucky fellow.
  13. There is a lot going on next month as we mark what would have been Eric's 75th birthday: AUGUST 3 • The City of Lyndhurst is having a special Eric Carmen Tribute Concert with donations benefiting an Eric Carmen Scholarship Fund.

ERIC CARMEN AND RASPBERRIES TO RECEIVE MUSICAL KEYNOTE TO THE CITY AUGUST 11 • Eric Carmen's birthday will be declared "Eric Carmen Day" in Cleveland, Ohio. Additionally, I have been hard at work on an official Eric Carmen project that is sure to blow everyone's socks off! 😎 Stay tuned...
  14. Our esteem and recognition! 🥸 Not a betting man, I had to look up six consecutive races: Types of Bets There are many kinds of bets. But let’s start with the basic ones: Win, Place and Show. Win — If your horse finishes 1st, you win $$$. Place — If your horse finishes 1st or 2nd, you win $$. Show — If your horse finishes 1st, 2nd or 3rd, you win $. Exotic Bets or Combination Wagers Across the board — Three equal Win, Place and Show bets. Exacta — Pick two horses in one race. If they finish 1st and 2nd, in exact order, you win. Quinella — Pick two horses. If they finish 1st or 2nd, in either order, you win. Also known as an Exacta Box. Trifecta — Pick three horses. If they finish 1st, 2nd and 3rd, in exact order, you win. Superfecta — Pick four horses. If they finish 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th, in exact order, you win. Daily Double — Pick one horse in each of two specific races. If they finish 1st in both races, you win. You have to make your bet before the first race. Pick 3 — Similar to the Daily Double, but for three consecutive races. Pick 4 — Similar to the Daily Double, but for four consecutive races. Pick 6 — The biggest bet you can make. Pick the winning horse in six consecutive races. If you win, you win big.
  15. In the shadow of Thomas Edison, the world only started hearing about Tesla's greatness in our lifetime.
  16. Lucky local Raspberries fans still get to see original drummer Jim Bonfanti play the drum parts on classic songs that he created!
  17. “Mapquest” dates the original post. Miss MJ. ❤️
  18. Folks, I've been noticing a fair amount of fake Eric Carmen signatures on eBay. Guess it's expected that theives would start offering them to cash in on Eric's passing. Anyway, here is a sampling of recent eBay auctions I would recommend you stay away from. 1. ERIC CARMEN signed album cover; COA 2. ERIC CARMEN SIGNED BOATS AGAINST THE CURRENT VINYL LP THE RASPBERRIES COA 3. RASPBERRIES~Eric Carmen Signed LET'S PRETEND Promo Record Sleeve + 45~Teen Idol
