  1. Holy Smokes but that sure is Fifty Shades of Awesomeness right there!!
  2. This rules. It simply flat out rules. We had Tom at the club a number of years ago and not only does he still look amazing but he still SOUNDS amazing too. Although this really adds nothing to the conversation my "dream band" always consisted of: Tom Jones: Lead Vocals Ted Nugent: Guitar Lemmy: Bass Bun E. Carlos: Drums And they would play nothing but covers of 50's Rock & Roll classics. To this day I still get chills thinking about how awesome this would be. ... Just saying.....
  3. Another tip of the hat to the 'Berries courtesy of Paul Stanley can be found in the intro to "Firehouse" and the way it nicks the intro to "Making It Easy"....
  4. Why choose one or the other? Cheap Trick has "Surrender" (One of the greatest Rock songs in the history of recorded music) while Raspberries have "I Wanna Be With You" (One of the other greatest Rock songs in the history of recorded music). In the end it's a win-win situation for all of us!!
  5. Ahh... but do you have "Hawaiian Shirt Fridays"?
  6. Thanks for the info, Helen!! I have Pop Art Live but I haven't played it in quite a while. Now I have a reason to dig it out again!! I do know that the "Bonus Tracks" (a.k.a. the tracks otherwise available only on the vinyl release) are on Spotify (and I've listened to 'em plenty) are they also available on iTunes?
  7. Dunno who Tommy Allen is but I second this emotion!! Would LOVE to hear the rest of this!!
  8. Raspberries: I Wanna Be With You Solo: Change Of Heart
  9. - "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" (Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell) & "What's Going On" (Marvin Gaye) both courtesy of the Incomparable James Jamerson (my humble vote for the Greatest Bassist of All Time, if I may be so bold) - "Rio" (Duran Duran) played by John Taylor - "Le Freak" (Chic) played by Bernard Edwards (shoot, ANYTHING played by Bernard Edwards is an education in Bass 101 Master Class)
  10. One of the things I look forward to every year are the goodies that Santa Bernie would leave for us. He's never let us down before and he certainly didn't this year, either. With this being said, I wouldn't have complained One. Single. Bit. if that vision of loveliness pictured in Susie B's post was under my tree as well. Just saying.....
  11. Granted, this is one person's opinion so I'll give them that and I won't get too worked up over it. However, to have a "Funniest Movies of All Time" and "National Lampoon's Animal House" missing from it completely invalidates this list for me.
  12. Damn, this guy simply does not age. He still looks great and delivers each and every time.
  13. My post has absolutely nothing of value to add in this topic other than to say that, in my book, "Zenyatta Mondatta" is the coolest album title in the history of all recorded music.
