  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Just found this online for all of you lucky fans in Hawaii: "A Walk Down Abbey Road" rock 'n' roll concert with Christopher Cross, Todd Rundgren, Alan Parsons, Jack Bruce, Mark Farner and Eric Carmen, 7 p.m. Saturday (gates open at 5:30 p.m.), A&B Amphitheater, Maui Arts & Cultural Center; $35 reserved general and $45 limited premiere table seating; also an after-concert reception to meet the musicians, a benefit for Mana'o Radio, 10 p.m. Saturday, Schaefer International Gallery, Maui Arts & Cultural Center; $50. (808) 242-7469.
  4. I have tickets for this show. Hope to see you all there!

  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Go Eric, indeed! --Bernie PS: Heloo in Australia!
  10. Okay...here's how to do it. Click on MY PROFILE above. Then click on VIEW/UPDATE PROFILE on the next page that comes up. Then scroll down to where you can select a picture. I'll be adding more Eric/Raspberries pictures in the near future but there's a nice selection to get you started! --Bernie
  11. Hey, hey! Check out this nifty new Message Board feature...you currently have to be a full-fledged Member to use 'em and I haven't decided whether to allow custom pictures, yet...but in the meantime, check it out and pick your favorite Eric album or picture or whatever --Bernie
  12. Hey all-- Eric just gave me a bit of cool information. He'll be meeting up with Todd Rundgren, Mark Farner, Christopher Cross, Jack Bruce and Alan Parsons for rehearsals in Hawaii next week where he'll join the band for the first two shows of the tour. His plans still call for him to rejoin the tour in Denver on July 4th, but if he squeezes in any more gigs before that I'll certainly let you know! Aloha. --Bernie
  13. EricH-- I try to put up the most current tour information I have as soon as I have it so that visitors of EricCarmen.com can be first in line for tickets to get as close as possible to the stage so that Eric can hear us scream and clap really, really LOUD for him! Most of the info I get is gleaned from multiple sources. Until verified, some of the listings are subject to change. --Bernie
  14. Foolin'-- Check out last month's ASK ERIC column for Eric's answer on when we can expect some new music! --Bernie
  15. Kazumi-- Eric personally addressed the alternate DEFINITIVE COLLECTION version of "Boats Against The Current" in ASK ERIC a few months ago. I agree with you on Eric's voice, and most certainly prefer the original version of the song. --Bernie
  16. Steve-- Eric has confirmed that he *will* be appearing in Denver on July 4th, so grab those tickets ASAP.
  17. The drummer for the "Abbey Road" tour is Steve Murphy. The band for the tour is not exclusively an all-star band concept like Ringo's last year. In fact, there's a couple of other studio guys in the band as well. This way the band will have the proper backup to do some of the more complex Beatles numbers and have 'em actually sound like the studio Beatles ... something Ringo never attempted. I'm anticipating a really tight show and can't wait to hear how faithfully they'll be able to pull of the Raspberries classics as well! --Bernie
