  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  5. 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!"

  6. 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.
