  1. Hello - nice tune by the Partridge Family. Thanks.
  2. now it's been 7 years.... I drove from Texas, via Mich. to see them in Cleveland. I had a feeling this would be the last chance. I was right. 1400 miles and is was worth every penny. I even saw the Knack, as a warm up. with Fieger now gone, it makes it even more important. Eric and Wally will probably never play as the Raspberries again. I hope I'm wrong.
  3. The Circle is Small! I love Lightfoot and almost forgot this one. Really great song!!!!!!!!
  4. WKYC's Russ Mitchell did an interview with Eric Carmen. Did anyone catch it? Randy
  5. Gotta be "On the Beach" or "If you change your mind".
  6. I don't pretend to be an expert in the matter, but I think if you were planning on seeing Eric , the chance was 4-5 years ago , during the Raspberries Reunion tour. I know the saying "never say never", but If I had an extra $1000, I'd bet against seeing him or the Raspberries again, excpet a show here and there, like at the Rock n' Roll HOF. As days pass into weeks and months turn into years, I can't see them doing a series of shows at age 70. Eric probably doesn't have the zeal for a solo tour that he once had. That's not a knock on him, but probably just the truth of the matter.
  7. Is there any Fotomaker footage?
  8. Nice cd. There are a couple throw aways, but I give it a solid "B."
  9. Someone beat me to it. I took my daughter to see the movie (a nice film too). They only played about 10 seconds of ABM, but that ought to pay the light bill for a few months in Cleveland.

    Lyle Lovett

    I wish I could make. He's got a nice voice and good looking ex-wife. I saw him sing at his church Sunday (Trinity Lutheran-Klein, Tx)
  11. AT the school where I teach, someone put together a slide presentation the last day of school. It included pictures of teachers at their own prom (20-30 years ago) or graduation pics and music from the era , playing in the background. When they got to those graduating in the 70's, much to my surprise, Go ALL THE WAY came blasting out! I just sat their and smiled , as my picture popped up on the screen. I could see teachers mouthing along, but probaly had forgotten who that great group was that sang it. I mean, of all the songs of the 70's to choose, I thought it was kind of cool that they picked this one.
  12. I heard that he was very ill, but that was a couple of years ago. Not sure how true the report here was .
  13. If you want to see how illegals are milking the system, go sit in emergency at the hospital. They use it for primary care and we, the insured, wait in line behind them! I know. Been there done that a few months ago. The nurse told me that 75% out there do not have insurance and never pay their bill. So guess who does it for them? "We are the world...we are the children."
  14. Danny S. (Curly) you are correct on all counts. Why do illegals take the jobs that nobody wants? Because our poor don't have to work. We support them. What would happen if welfare only went to the deserving needing help and not the lazy? Oh my gosh.......somebody might have to get a job. As long as one can make more on welfare and sit home, why should they find a job at wal-Mart ? (other than dignity-which doesn't make the house payment last time I checked)
  15. So when he wins in Nov. get ready for capital gains taxes to go from 15% to 28 or 35%. Both him and Hillary already said that. They think the only people drawing on a 401k are the wealthy , with over a million or more bucks. Get ready to reinstate the inheritance tax, and discontinue the Bush tax cuts, set to expire in 2010. I'm not a Bush fan, but when it comes to taxes-just wait till Obama and the guys take over! We can debate Bush's spending policies another time. So much for being a fiscal conservative.
  16. Got a question that only a few may know the answer to, (although Eric should). When the Raspberries were on VH1 and played an acoustic , slowed down version of "IWBWY", they recorded several others for the show. What happened to Overnight Sensation," "Last Dance," "Should I Wait" and "Nobody Knows?" Will they ever turn up or are they in the VH1 vault? Were they played acoustic too?
  17. So what did they say on TV? A tour coming next year ? New music?
  18. Mary had a little lamb? It worked for McCartney.
  19. How about the question of why people listen to them and Frey said," Take it easy, Peaceful easy feeling, already gone, witchy woman, new kid in town, hotel california, lyin eyes , take it to the limit, long run, life in the fast lane...etc.. ? I guess that covered it pretty much.
  20. So,I found the concert dates on the Raspberries link. How about a set list? Are they playing EC songs? Is it the same lineup of backup singers?
  21. Is there a list of tour dates in LA and Cleveland on here somewhere? How about a set list for the NY shows in Oct?
  22. I didn't check on the site for awhile and next thing you know the Raspberries are touring again in LA, NY and Cleveland? Any dates and details of other shows coming?
  23. I bought 125 cd's for a $1 last weekend. Most in good shape, but a lot of country, which I don't like. I had a couple diamonds in the rough, worth 10-15 bucks though. (double cd's)
