  1. I'll take Slowhand himself, Eric Clapton. And Santana too.
  2. Hi Beep- and anyone else who gets the chance! You must go see Aerosmith! They are the most awesome rock concert band. I went to their New Year's Eve concerts in Boston more times than I can count. I met Steven Tyler one time (he's actually quite small) and he was very cool and friendly. "Dream On" is one of my most favorite songs! They got their start in New England so we feel very possessive of them here. Most of the guys live in Massachusetts still. Let me know if you go and what you think...
  3. I believe "Let The River Run" was sung by Carly Simon for the movie "Working Girl". (Harrison Ford, Melanie Griffith, Sigourney Weaver) The movie was excellent but the song was less than amazing. I did not remember that it won the Oscar.
  4. I caught the "Today Show" this morning too. "All By Myself" played in the backround of a Jay Leno skit with him, alone and lonely, in a hotel room. He was studying the mounds of Today Show research materials he had to read in preparation for his day of trading jobs with Katie Couric today. It was actually quite adorable...
  5. Oh my God! These 2 sites are fun-but who came up with these combinations of people. I am supposedly most compatible with Ray Romano, Vin Diesel, John Elway, Nicolas Cage and Vinnie Jones (who is that???). No musicians amongst them. One bonus-it says my physical score with my husband is 100% WOW!!!
  6. Hope you had an awesome birthday Matt!!! We should have a birthday list for all of us... By the way, my maiden name is Brown and my Mom would love to think she has a "lovely daughter"...
  7. I was never a Bon Jovi (hair band) fan in the 80s or 90s, but admit I am enjoying their resurgence now. "It's My Life" is an awesome anthem song that I now listen to almost daily.
  8. OH My God Julia! I have tears in my eyes. What an awesome story! I am so happy you had such a great experience of a lifetime. It just proves what a wonderful human being Eric is and that our feelings about him and his music are so well placed. Thank you for sharing your experience.
  9. To this day I believe that "Seasons In The Sun" is the greatest "One Hit Wonder" in history. I couldn't believe that it was 30 something on the VH1's 100 greatest one hit wonder list. The "Macarena" was number one...yuck!

    My absence

    JuliaD! I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. Try to take care of yourself too...good music, good food (maybe some of those raspberry creams are in order) and as much rest as you can get...I know your Mom is in great hands with you in charge....
  11. Kate Hudson of "Almost famous" is the daughter of Bill Hudson and Goldie Hawn.
  12. Was the 80s band "Glass Tiger" Canadian? I loved their pop hit "Don't Forget Me When I'm Gone"....I figured they were Canadian because I heard that song when I was dating a guy from Toronto and it took months before I heard it in the US...
  13. I am thinking Charlie too, I cannot see Trista as a Colorado Fire Dept Mama...I'd take Ryan over Charlie myself... I'd rather see a milk mustache on Trista over that doofus Joe Millionaire though...
  14. Hey Billy-I would have loved to have known you back then too. I would have called you first to let you know Eric was on t.v. and share the moments! Yes, Darlene, these have been the best 25 years...somehow this musical anniversary has been a reflective one for me. I always knew how special Eric's music was for me but 25 years means it has been really significant in my life. Maybe that sounds corny but it's true. I think you should did out that memory box once a year and really enjoy... Hey Tony-the idea of you singing "Never Gonna Fall In Love Again" with spinach in your teeth is hilarious. Bad visualization there...
  15. On February 10th, 1978, in the middle of the infamous "Blizzard of '78" in Concord, Mass...I first saw Eric Carmen perform. I was 16 years old. It was a week of snow days and my Mom let me watch afternoon TV. We kids were probably driving her batty... Eric was on the Merv Griffin Show and he sang "All By Myself" and "She Did It" as the new album "Boats Against The Current" was being released. He was amazing and gorgeous and so began my love affair... This was such an important date for me that I documented it in my High School Yearbook..."EHC 2/10/78 All By Myself..." at the very end of my notes section. On top of that, just a few days later my love for Eric was further cemented when I went to France on a school exchange trip. On the plane, "Never Gonna Fall In Love Again" was in the song rotation on one of the headphone music stations. I made sure to time it so I could listen to the song every time it came on-both to and from Paris. It was a great trip as I shared the plane seats with my crush of the day..a boy named Joe and he teased me unmercifully about my new addiction (and a lot of other things). Joe lasted about 18 months but Eric has lasted 25 years... Anyway, thanks for letting me share my anniversary with all of you...thanks mostly to Eric for bring me much joy and happiness through his music...and thanks to my EricCarmen.com friends for letting me cherish him every day...

    I could not believe I watched that Michael Jackson special...I didn't intend to but it hooked me as I flipped channels...too much information that was quite disturbing. Yet, listen to those songs and I cannot help but be a fan especially of the 70s and 80s albums...
  17. We need to find joy in the many albums Eric has already given us...think of all the songs we have to treasure now-from the early bands to the Raspberries to the various stages of his solo career. Yes, we all crave more Eric music. But in the meantime, understand that life takes many stages and this is his family time. I'd much rather think of him with a wonderful and happy family life...than recording an album to just satisy us or a record company. "I was a dreamer...You were a dreamer...But perfection is consuming...And it seems we're only human after all."

    Ask Eric

    Tony's being a bad boy again...JuliaD you must tell us what your question is....
  19. I am so glad I am not the only one who liked Herb Albert! Does anyone remember Ray Conniff? My Mom had like 20 of his albums and I learned so many songs from him...loved it. I still have all the albums. All his covers had gorgeous women on them...He died this past year.
  20. My hand's down choice to sing at "American Idol" would be "Boats Against The Current".
  21. Hi Bernie! I hope you'll be putting all the great photos of Eric in your book. There are so many that I'd love to have...will you have a photo section??? By the way, the Super Bowl milk mustache ads are wonderful (as always)!!!!
  22. You guys better not laugh at this...but my Dad bought me my first album which was a Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass album. I got it for good grades in elementary school and I played the heck out of it-but still own it... My first single (also bought for me by my Dad because I would sing it to him and he probably wanted me to get the words right) was "The Lion Sleeps Tonight". Played the heck out of that too. Am I obsessive??? sure sounds like I am.
  23. My first concert was James Taylor in the mid 70s...he was awesome...still love him...
  24. I always knew, Bernie, that you are brilliant!!! The milk mustache idea is amazing advertising! I will definitely pick up those books.... By the way, Bernie, can you give me the inside scoop on Tom Brady???? He's no Eric Carmen but he's definitely on my 25-30 age group heartthrob list...
  25. I love that Volkswagen commercial so much that I have been listening to my ELO CDs this past week. Was Jeff Lynne the ELO guy in the Traveling Wilbury's? I loved that musical combo of guys. I think the Wilbury's CD is out of print but I would love to find it. Any ideas? I wish VH1 would play some of those 80s videos again...
