  1. Chet-- Many thanks for the review! Eric told me that the first two shows in Hawaii were going to be VERY loose. Apparently they only had a couple of days to rehearse. Thanks again! --Bernie
  2. Steve-- I'm still waiting to hear from Chris in Hawaii who had floor seats near the stage. I'll post his review as soon as I get it! --Bernie
  3. Howard, Sounds like fun. --Bernie
  4. Howard-- Speaking about that ASK ERIC...did you get a chance to compare the drum in "Cartoon World" to both "Sgt. Pepper" and "Magical Mystery Tour" to determine exactly which one Eric sampled? --Bernie
  5. Not to mention the first photo of Eric and the boys on the Abbey Road tour during rehearsals in Hawaii...check it out right here ! --Bernie
  6. First photo of Eric and the boys on the Abbey Road tour during rehearsals in Hawaii...check it out right here ! --Bernie
  7. Hey, cool! Even *I* didn't know about that. --Bernie
  8. Darlene-- Just go to the main MESSAGE BOARD. You can click on the word MESSAGES above. Then simply go to the "A Walk Down Abbey Road" Message Board. --Bernie
  9. Julie-- We should know more about where Eric is on stage, songs played, etc. after this weekend's Hawaii shows. Sounds like you got GREAT seats! --Bernie
  10. Marvin-- Kyle actually recorded his excellent version of "On The Beach" with Rubinoos popmeister Tommy Dunbar for the PRESERVED CD, but they didn't finish it in time for it to be included on the CD. --Bernie

  14. Billy K.-- You definitely need to check out the Japanese CDs. If you go hunting for 'em on eBay look for the later reissues. The most recent CDs were 20-bit remasters and are really AMAZING. I'm still stinging over the fact that some of Eric's solo and Raspberries LPs have been released 3!!! times in japan while most of them have yet to surface once here in the States. What an outrage! --Bernie
  15. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of highlights on the PRESERVED CD ... IMHO, the Rubinoos cover is the clear winner. But then again, the Rubinoos are a GREAT band in their own right. (FYI, that is Ken Sharp on the CD. I never thought his voice sounded feminine. Think: Nick Gilder, and you'd be closer to my take on Ken's voice.) --Bernie PS: I happen to like quite a few of Nick Gilder's album tracks. "Hot Child In The City" doesn't even come close to the power-pop splendor of a number of his toe-tapping gems. A pretty good songwriter with plenty of catchy groovin' guitar licks.
  16. Patience, Leonard...patience. --Bernie PS: As Steve said, you guys are getting this info FAST!!! Sometimes even faster then the venues (believe it or not). Eric has told me that he'll play the Hawaii dates and all July dates. That's what I'm going by. A lot of the venues have info from before Eric was brought into the tour. Hopefully they'll change those listings as the shows get closer and closer. One caveat ... thangs can change. The schedule is jam-packed. I can't guarantee Eric will be at every show listed. But there's a good enough chance that he will, which is why I've already locked up tickets for anything within driving distance of my home! --Bernie
  17. Go Eric, indeed! --Bernie PS: Heloo in Australia!
