  1. Thing One: The set list for Chicago will probably be different from the Cleveland shows. I doubt they'll do Choir material. Any word on what songs will be added, or dropped? Thing Two: I couldn't help but notice Bernie's use of the word 'tour' when referencing the band's plans. I guess there is a Santa Claus! Thing Three: Speaking of Santa, what goodies does Ol' Saint Bernie have planned for under this year's Chrismas Tree??
  2. Thanks June...I think a Raspberries concert in the NorthEast is just what the therapist ordered. Dave
  3. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I like the old Raspberries logo better than the new one at Raspberries.net. The old logo was on Jim's drum and on the t-shirts sold at the concert, and on this website. If the band wants to promote itself, it would help to chose one or the other. My vote is for the oldie but goodie. Dave
  4. Wow! This thread really made me think! It's amazing how many songs Eric and the band have written 'just for me'! So instead of saying which songs I've 'lived', here are the ones I'm currently 'living': "All By Myself" "Boats Against The Current" (assuming it's about the end of a relationship) "It Hurts Too Much" "I'm Thru With Love" and "Someday". As you can guess, I'm at the of a 25 year marriage and I'm not too happy about it. Hopefully the next time this thread comes around I'll be living "Starting Over". Dave
  5. Jim, you also need 'grammar check'. You forgot the apostrophe on 'Its'. ;-) Dave
  6. Hey, if the redsox can win the world series and the raspberries can reunite, getting a couple of signatures from a bunch of money hungry pinheads should be a piece of cake! Dave
  7. I wonder if they can get the rights to reproduce the Kirshner concerts or other shows? dave
  8. We're all excited about the potential of a concert DVD. Has any thought been put into including any OLD footage of the band, such as old concert footage, GO! show, promotional videos, etc?? Apparantly it's available as bootleg videos/DVDs on ebay...how about the guys making some cash on this footage, instead of somebody else!? I know I'd be willing to pay a few extra bucks for it. Dave
  9. Pat! How did your show go? I would have listened but didn't see your post until too late. Dave
  10. The way I look at it Darlene, is that 33% of the times we've met, we've seen the Raspberries, too. Pretty good odds! Lookin' forward to seeing you again SOON. Dave
  11. "Don't Want To Say Goodbye" was a real moment for me. I never thought too much about the song until I saw them play it live. It used to feel like a heavy, durgy kind of song to me. But after hearing them play it live I've found a new love for the song. Not only did they rev up the power, they LOVED doing it. And it showed. At one point while they were playing it, Dave, Wally and Eric we're all lined up diagonally across the stage...and from my angle (on the right) I couldn't help but notice they were beaming...smiling like kids on Christmas Eve. (I just noticed that many of my posts since Friday night mention people smiling. I guess that kinda captures how we were/are all feeling.) Dave
  12. 1) The guys smiled as much as we did. 2) Wally has an incredibly supportive family. 3) Dave is still 22. 4) Jim hasn't missed a beat. 5) In Wally's next life he'll be a comedian 6) HOB was great (special thanks to Laura) 7) Native Clevelanders really loved The Choir 8) Native Clevelanders love to rock 9) This message board has really great people, spouses, kids, and friends. 10) In Bernie's next life he'll be a film editor (nice job on the video, B!) 11) Eric can do it all...and man! he does it all incredibly well. 12) Those guys can still play! 13) I don't think the show could have have sounded better (except maybe Eric's piano...my only nit) 14) I flew to Cleveland with fellow New Jerseyites Bernie, his wife Kathy, and Dennis Ferrante (engineer for the 'Berries' first 3 albums). Dennis' stories are incredible. He was totally psyched for the concert. Hadn't seen the band since the 70's. He put this as the 3rd most exciting time in his life, right behind the birth of his kids and working with John Lennon. We sat together at the show and I know for a fact that he was not disappointed. 15) None of us were! 16) I'm still smiling! Dave
  13. It's now 5:5am. I updated the list for the last time. It's on Pg 2. Hope it helps. See you "To-niiiiight, I'll be with you to-niiight, baby tonight!" Dave
  14. It's now 11pm EST. I'm going to sleep, I hope. But for the first time in over 40 years I feel like it's Christmas Eve and I may not catch a wink! The list on pg 2 is updated. I'll do it once more at 6am EST on Friday. See ya tomorrow! Dave
  15. Yahoooo! 24 hours to go! It's just about 9pm Thurs EST, I just updated the list on Pg 2. Sorry Paula for dropping your 'a'. Dave
  16. Gotcha Art. I added you and your posse to the list.
  17. Tiggs, anyone else arriving at the airport around noon Friday, my cell # is 609-571-6329.
  18. I'm not eating that much today because tomorrow I'm going to stuff myself on some 'good, good, good rock n' roll'! We've all got a lot to be thankful for. Have a great holiday. Dave
  19. Updated list as of 2pm Thanksgiving Day. I'll update this list tonite and Friday Morning before I leave for the airport. From what I understand, not everyone is going to the pre-concert reception, so this list might come in handy for those who don't get name tags there. I'M TOTALLY PYSCHED!!!

  20. I put together a cheat sheet of many of the recent posters. Please copy and paste this list and add any first names that I didn't fill in and re-post it. By Fridday morning we should have everyone's name. Then print it out before coming to the concert and we'll all know who is who! Oh, and please add yourself, or anyone I may have missed. (I didn't want to assume any first names, so I only filled in the ones that people actually used as a signature.) raspbernie..........bernie lobsterlvr..........dave mannoman............ted Tiggsherby..........harry peirson.............pat Art.................

  21. Since there are so many of us dot com'ers attending this concert, in addition to our Raspberries Ribbons, perhaps we should wear some kind of name tag with both our screen name AND real name. (I thought of walking around with a lobster, but I ate him for dinner!) Dave
  22. Tigg - I arrive from Newark on Contiental flight 525 at 11:50am. I'm grabbing a cab. If your flight arrives around the same time I'll be happy to double up! send me an mail at daveshea1@comcast.net dave
