  1. Eric opened for The Sweet in the mid 70's. I thought that was a bit odd. Love is like Oxygen

    "REFRESHED AGAIN" or "NOT FROZEN"
  3. Got my cd's/dvd yesterday. When I popped in the dvd, I just sat there and smiled through the entire show. What a treat! Eric doesn't look a day over 58. (haha) They can rock it.Wally is just so cool on the dual.
  4. Diane in Dallas; This is Randy in Houston. Let's bring the Raspberries to Texas!
  5. We always say,,," let's do it tomorrow." And then look what happens. Brad Delp
  6. It seems that the momentum has stalled. I saw Raspberries in the summer of 2005 in Cleveland. Like many of you , I thought they were on to something. I was pumped. Maybe new material? Maybe a new cd? Expanded tour? Well, here we are 2 years later and really NOTHING. I don't get it. How about a new cd with 10-12 newly written songs ? We want more! We want more!
  7. Anyone have a recipe for simple steps to download videos from you tube to a dvd?
  8. Driving Home for Christmas by Chris Rea !
  9. EC and WB: Come on , let's hug and make up. That was a long time ago and the fans know it was a hit. Eric loved it and the song helped launch Wally. It is what it is! GATW is one great , classic tune.Can we be friends?
  10. I think it was the "other Carmine" who was drunk and tripped and fell off the stage.
  11. Check out Eric and the Raspberries on www.youtube.com Some new old video up. Cool
  12. That's a tough one. I'd have to go through my record, tape and cd collection. Off the top of my head (and this might change in an hour), "Dust in the Wind"-Todd Rundgren, "Darlin"-Dwight Twilley and "Gentle Way to Ride"- Shake Russell.
  13. Eric and Wally ; I know you guys must have a dozen new good ones ready to crank out. Come on guys-we are ready!
  14. I just got in from Flint-Chicago-Houston flight today and the Flight Attendant told everyone to turn off their Blackberries, Strawberries and Blueberries. When I exited, I told her"don't forget Raspberries too!, they are my favorite group from the 70's. " She smiled, but not sure if it registered. She looked like she went to school with Frank Sinatra.
  15. How about Scott McCarl! He lives out there (I think).
  16. Did anyone see a review of Friday's show in the local Cleveland paper? If so, can you link it here? thanks Cleveland fans
  17. If the Plain Dealer writes a review of last nights show, can someone link it?thanks
  18. My life is now complete! If I die tomorrow, I'll be smiling while they set me 6 feet under. It all started with the "Ticket to Ride " @ 9:36 pm e.s.t. then... (in this order) I wanna be with you It seemed so easy Lets Ptetend Last Dance Tonight Should I wait Nobody Knows If you change your mind(the baby don't go line..Eric nailed it baby!) Makin' it easy Party's Over Overnight Sensation I can remember It's cold outside Play on Hard to get over a heartbreak Ecstacy I don't know what I want Time was 11:00 Encore: Lose that girl Twist and Shout I'm a rocker and then Go all the way. It was 11:28 and that was it. I'd estimate the crowd at 2,300 out of 5,000 or so. The floor was about 90% full.I ran into Ken Sharp and said hi to Amy Rocker. The plastic seats in the grandstand , with no back and hurt everyone's rear end.. Eric was wrong..the Indians lost 7-1. Maybe it was thunder! hahha ERic introduced a fan from Japan and one from London (Julia) on stage after the first song or two. Wally, Jim and Dave bring out the best in Eric. He was rocking . How the radio people never understood , back in the 70's is a ? mark.After the show, My wife and buddy asked me what I thought of the show. I said, "it was even better than I expected." It was really a dream come true. I've loved these guys for 33 years and flew from Houston to see them. Marvin you missed a good show. I wanted to meet Bernie, I found out from Ken he was in the crowd , but never got a chance to say hi. I sure hope the tour continues , at least another stop in Cleveland next summer, a dvd or new album. Just for the real fans like us. How about it guys?

  20. Is there a repeat? I missed it. randycmu@pdq.net
  21. I'm hearing a 2 hour set. Let's hope.Bernie?
  22. Buy TOP 40 HITS book by Joel Whitburn. It is the rock and roll bible.
  23. I was member #30 on the board. I go waaaaaaaaay back. Been a fan of the Raspberries since 72. Had tickets to see them in Detroit in 75, but they cancelled and broke up. I'll be in Cleveland. I can't wait. I got my 6 year old even singing "Let's Pretend!"
  24. What was the size of the crowd? How many does the Wisconsin place hold and how many seats were filled? Is there enough momentum to sustain a tour beyond the summer? I suppose Cleveland will rock and NY, but I wonder if that will be it? Just got my Cleveland tickets and I'm ready to rock! I waited 35 years to see these guys.
