  1. I saw Beatlemania and I saw RAIN. Both shows were great. I obviously knew I wasn't seeing The Beatles, but I didn't leave the show feeling cheated. I also saw Brit Floyd recently, and I left the show almost feeling like I saw the real thing. All I ask is...don't sell yourself as if you're the real product. There's nothing wrong with being a TRIBUTE Band, and if you're good enough, people will come. I'm a big fan of Uriah Heep. The band members slowly changed over the years, and even when Mick Box, the only remaining original member is gone, I won't have a problem with them carrying on under the Uriah Heep name because they have established themselves as Uriah Heep. It was a slow process that morphed from the original. It would be different if Mick had decided one day that he could get a completely new band and call themselves Uriah Heep, because that leaves the door open for every member of the band doing that. You can't have 4 or 5 versions of the same band.
  2. What a coincidence that I was just talking to a co-worker about the Eagles concert that I saw several months ago. I said that Henley sounded SO good that I kept looking fore signs that he was lip-syncing, but I couldn't find any. I was blown away by how good he sounded.
  3. Most cars/trucks have a USB port somewhere in easy access to the driver. If you put all your music on a flash drive and plug it in, your truck radio should recognize it. They usually have pretty user friendly interfaces.
  4. I guess it's possible for both to be true. Maybe the thought of naming the new group "Raspberries" didn't occur to them until Eric blurted it out. I'd say if none of the other Berries support Eric's version though, you're probably right.
  5. There are also two listed here that are very intriguing to me. "Planet Of The Apes". Does anyone know anything about this one. ALSO "Seventies With A Twist". There are 18 different songwriters credited on it, including McCartney. MY guess is that this is something where various songs are samples or which included snippets from various songs?
  6. I notice there are some missing from here. The Way We Used To Be for one.
  7. On April 29, a starry lineup including Babyface, Manilow, John Mellencamp, Busta Rhymes, Carlos Santana, Toni Braxton, Ray Parker Jr. and Dionne Warwick will join The New York Pops to honor Davis at Carnegie Hall with "The Soundtrack of Our Lives: A Tribute to the Legendary Clive Davis." Davis says he doesn't know life "any other way" than the one that has made him one of music's undisputed godfathers. His loyalty to his artists is also as legendary as his reputation, and Davis notes that his relationships extended beyond merely signing a burgeoning star to a record deal. As I stated in another thread, I will be very disappointed if Eric is not mentioned.

  9. I'm not really sure that the other Berries have a good outlet for releasing a statement unless they are contacted to do so. Unless I'm wrong, they don't have websites or other social media accounts. Clive Davis, on the other hand, would be able to. The fact that I haven't seen a statement from him, promotes (or should I say "demotes") my overall opinion of him.
