  1. I'm thankful I have a file of Eric singing "After You".......One of his best, few have heard....
  2. Chesterland Hullabaloo....How many of you remember seeing Cyrus Erie here?
  3. Eric ....as well as The Raspberries, are long overdue for Rock Hall nomination!
  4. Bernie....Remember The Cyrus Erie opening for The Who at Musicarnival tape? I grew up when Eric played the Hulabaloos in NE Ohio....We talked many hours on the phone in those early days and even helped him move Cyrus Erie equipment from Chesterland to downtown Cleveland to a recording studio. There was a time after Cyrus Erie, and before Raspberries, he practiced with a band I was in, in Solon, Ohio to play some gigs in NY. It never materialized but the practice sessions were memorable...playing with this local giant. He was always soft-spoken, intelligent, and courteous to me. His memory will live on forever.....

    Where's Eric?

    Is Eric still living in the Cleveland area?? Been awhile since I've been here but Bernie should remember when I shared my videos of The Cyrus Erie and The Who at Music Carnival.... Last I knew Eric was still here but that was a couple years ago.......
  7. Giving grease a ride!
  8. R.I.P..........Leo Murphy.....Father of Marty Murphy, one of Eric's best friends and also an original member of Cyrus Erie passed. He served as the trainer for The Cleveland Browns many years. https://www.cleveland.com/obituaries/index.ssf/2018/08/leo_murphy_94_worked_longer_th.html
  9. Hey Marty....Eh,I mean martinwilbury.....I was also at that show where CE opened for Jeff Beck Group. Mentor Hullabaloo on a wintery Sunday afternoon. I was sitting....yes,sitting...on the floor with Jeff beck within reach of me. Rod Stewart on vocals...Jeff Beck,guitar....Ron Wood,bass....Mick Waller,drums....I distinctively remember the drummer shaking his head in disgust about Mike McBrides drum set-up. I thought his kit was great! Sweat dripped off of Beck's nose he was so intense. And yes....no one could play Nights in White Satin like Cyrus Erie! I miss our conversations at Gateway Drug,Marty!
  10. I think the opening is played fingers across the D,G,B, and E strings at the 7th fret,with hammers on the G string,9th fret.........then B string,10th fret....G string, 11th fret. I saw Eric play this part....not sure what Wally played. Droning on the A string throughout.... ????
  11. This guy is one of the best classic Rock guitarists on Youtube...I think he nailed this!
  12. BTW....I am "catter" in the comments section........I wanted to voice how I truly feel about Eric and his rightful earnings.....
  13. http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2015/11/former_raspberries_singer_eric.html#incart_m-rpt-1
  14. In the Cyrus Erie pic on stage....wasn't the guy in the striped shirt named Pete??? A roadie??? BTW...what was Don Ladanyi's younger brothers name?? He was a roadie with Pete....
  15. Imagine how good Clapton would have been had he learned to play guitar with ALL his fingers....he never uses his pinky! Observe......
