  1. It's true. With the current exchange rate, anyone born in Canada in 1960 is 46 years old - American. Dave
  2. I'm pretty sure Vintage Vinyl is in Fords, NJ. Dave
  3. very tempting Mavin, very tempting. well played. dave (aka lobsterlvr)
  4. Just a quick note to say thanks to all the great people in this forum. I am no longer in purgatory when it comes to the Devil and The Deep Blue Sea. Dave
  5. Growin' up around Boston in the '70's put Aerosmith, The J. Geils Band, Harry Chapin and Tavares in every small venue from Beantown to the Berkshires. It was great! Dave
  6. I always hated the Raspberries name. It was too cutesy. I loved how they marketed it, but they grew out of it, musically. Maybe they should have embraced the power within and changed their name to 'The Eric Carmen Band'. Dave
  7. I'm ashamed of myself. I've only heard 'devil' once. If anyone knows where I can hear it again please drop me an email. Dave (lobsterlvr@aol.com)
  8. My name suggetions would be; NorthCoast (from what I understand, a nickname for Cleveland and it captures the 'beachy' sound that the 'Berries had) Rockmaninoff (guitar meets piano) The Stinky McNulty Band (a name I came up with for my nephew's garage band. the band never made it but the name lives on!) or possibly The Ohio Lobster Fishermen (because I love lobsters!) Dave (aka lobsterlvr)
  9. (aka LobsterLvr) Little did I know what interest my love of lobsters would create in this enviroment. You'll be happy to know my cholesterol is 135, despite my crustacean craving. As Eric would say, enjoying lobster is 'Am..m..m..merican as apple pie!" In fact isn't the next line 'Eating lotsa lobsters on the 4th of July!"? That reminds me...I gotta go shopping! Dave
  10. LobsterLvr comes from my love of the delicious tasting crustacean. I was born and bred on lobster (lobstah, as my family in New England still says). In fact I was in Maine and New Hamspire this weekend and had lobster in both states. The best place in the world for lobster? Brown's Lobster Pound in Seabrook, NH. Heaven on earth! My only regret about moving to NJ...the cost of lobster!! Dave
  11. Darlene, my email address is, and will always be lobsterlvr@aol.com. As long as no one else takes that name here at ec.com, I guess I can always go back to it. But for now, I'm MarathonManFan, loud, proud, and (what else rhymes with loud?)...wow'ed? Dave
  12. It's me, the poster formally known as LobsterLvr. I figured I'd change my screen name to be more Eric-friendly. Also, I figured Eric needed a bit of marketing help. Since Bernie decided to call his book "Marathon Man", it's only natural that we all start calling him by the same moniker. Johnny Cash was the Man in Black, Bruce is The Boss, Frank was Ol Blue Eyes, why not market Eric as "Marathon Man". It sounds cool. It sounds powerful. It sounds viril (sp?). For a while Eric was "The Kid" but now that he's got two of his own, it doesn't quite match. Long live "Marathon Man". Dave
  13. I did it! From this day forward I am 'MarathonManFan' Dave (the poster formally known as lobsterlvr)
  14. I'm ok with the singles from Eric's debut solo album. But the choices off of 'Boats' basically sank his popularity. 'Marathon Man' would have made Eric a household name had it been released as a single. It's a one of a kind song. ESPN would still be playing it! Just look at the ad banner that Bernie put together for his book...heck, look at the name of the book!! In fact this gives me a great idea for a new screen name! Good bye lobsterlvr...hello 'MarathonManFan'!!! Dave (the poster formally known as lobsterlvr)
  15. I've always had a fear that Eric would cancel on me, but he never did! Saw him with the Berries, The Dirty Dancing Tour, and with Ringo. I've never seen him solo. This thread reminds me that 31 years ago (high school graduation week ) I had tickets to see Led Zepplin and the Beach Boys on two successive nights in Boston. I got strep and the measles and had to give my tickets away. (Had it been the Raspberries, I would have gone to 'the gahden' with my fever, soar throat and rash!!!) Dave (still here after 7 years) Shea lobsterlvr!!
  16. Eric played the same song with Ringo at the State Theater in NJ. It's such a great song. Love it everytime I hear it. Thanks B. Dave
  17. what do you think Darlene? should we have a bar crawl between you house and mine? Ballads at your pad, rockers at mine! And to make things more fun, every time Eric sings the word "tonight", we'll all have to do a jello shot! Dave
  18. LEVETZ LETTER is to Eric Carmen as "Killing Me Softly" is to Don McLean. Dave
  19. I'd say 'thanks' and then we'd talk about something totally different than his music. The last thing he wants to hear is my opinion of his life's work. He's been reading my humble mindfarts on internet for almost 10 years now. (I was a much more active contributor back in the '90's.) So we'd talk about baseball, our favorite bbq sauces, our kids, how our wives drive us crazy, practical jokes we played on our buddies back in the 70's, and who we liked best of the original Charlies Angles. Important stuff. Dave
  20. I bought both WD CD's. So glad I did. The Japanese know how to package things. Nice graphics. Great pics. And 'Caroline No'. I give WD just as much air play as all the other EC CD's. I'm an equal opportunity player. DAve
  21. The song has always amazed me. It's like taking five different roads at the same time...to some place great. It's like each guy wrote his own part of the song and they all got together and didn't change a thing! The drums are insane. The guitars are all doing something completely different. And then there Eric's singing! It's an amazing example of 1+1+1+1+1 equalling a perfect 10. Dave
  22. Next month That 70's Show is going to do a follow-up episode and plans to use "Hands On You" and "I Think I Found Myself". ;-) Dave
  23. I'll kick in $100 bucks if Eric kicks in a new CD.
  24. the episode is about 'self pleasure'. one of the characters thinks he's 'all by himself' and gets caught in the act. Dave
