  1. Hey there Just a note to alert you that I won’t be member Sally G anymore of your Eric Carmen site. Yesterday someone hacked into my amazon.com account and fraudulently began charging against my credit card. They also locked me out of my hotmail account. I have alerted all the appropriate companies, agencies, and the police. Investigations are underway and Hotmail will close my account. I haven’t been online much lately because of wedding preparations last year, and also my mother has been ill since last year and was just admitted to the hospital again yesterday. I'm sending Bernie an email from a new temporary email account to please close my membership to your site and I will open a new membership again sometime soon. All The Best, Joyce
  2. "Gene The Genius" has got the absolute BEST idea! Count me in (pun intended, I'm a writer and can't help it!!)!
  3. Happy New Year to you, too, Eric! And Happy New Year to everybody on the board! Peace & Love, Joyce & Tom
  4. Just got mine! Whew! That was a close one. I can't believe I almost missed this after waiting all this time... I haven't been online on a regular basis for awhile, been sick, holidays approaching, etc. Really looking forward to the surround sound! All The Best, Joyce
  5. Glad to hear that all is going so smoothly for Dave. We'll continue praying for his speedy recovery. All The Best, Joyce & Tom
  6. I like: A Christmas Story Scrooged and my newest fave Christmas movie is Elf!
  7. No problem, Marvin. I am sooo looking forward to this... CMT has been advertising this really heavily lately, the promos are kick butt! I doubt I'll get to see Lindsey, too, so this will have to do it for me. Oh and that's 9PM ET... Joyce
  8. My absolute fave Christmas cds, in no particular order: I Wanna Be Santa Claus - Ringo Winter Guitar - Laurence Juber Christmas - Brad Paisley All I Want For Christmas Is A Real Good Tan - Kenny Chesney Christmas - Don McLean When My Heart Finds Christmas - Harry Connick Jr. Christmas Songs By Sinatra - Frank Sinatra And.... I *always* have to play these singles every year, in no particular order: Rudolph The Red Nosed Reggae, Wonderful Christmastime - Paul McCartney Happy Xmas (War Is Over) - John Lennon Feliz Navidad - Jose Feliciano Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town - Bruce Springsteen (Live) All The Best, Joyce
  9. Don't miss Lindsey on CMT this Saturday nite (tomorrow, 12/2) with country act Little Big Town, show is "Crossroads" at 9PM. If you do miss it, they do rerun these specials quite a lot... I've been saying for awhile now that LBT reminds me of FM, but with a bit of country twist. Check it out! Joyce
  10. I can't make up my mind on this one... it did seem like she was cutting up and reacted before they announced it... For me, the real show stealer was Kimberly Williams Paisley with the "knocked up and blind" comment! LOL! Joyce
  11. Yes, sounds like a case for Inspector Clouseau... It's a shame so much valuable footage is either lost or damaged from shows of this era and much earlier days of television. When you think about it, the way this priceless stuff has been (mis)handled, it's a miracle we've still got as much stuff archived as we do these days... *sigh*... --Joyce--
  12. Yes, let's remember George today. Couldn't have said it better myself. We watched Concert for Bangladesh again this past Sunday... Joyce
  13. I'm hoping Eric decides to include "Ecstasy," "On Broadway" and the slow version of "I Wanna Be With You." It would be a dream come true if Eric would be able to take this show to NYC for a performance at Carnegie Hall. Oh the goose bumps! We went to the Grand Ole Opry at Carnegie Hall last November and all the artists, mostly well-seasoned, were in awe of the place. The acoustics were incredibly amazing, too, of course. All The Best, Joyce
  14. These photos are outrageous! So nice of Marilyn to share with us. Thanks Bernie for posting them. And as always, thanks to Eric for the inside info to go with them! All The Best, Joyce
  15. Great stuff Bernie, thanks! Great info, Eric,thanks! Lucky lucky us!
  16. Spent a lot of time reading this thread and reflecting on it. Eric and everyone else are expressing honest opinions so beautifully and eloquently, sometimes quite humorously. Everyone's sincerity regarding an extremely beloved subject and sensitive situation is very true. I believe completely and totally Eric's motivations for posting on this site to be this: He adores his fans and enjoys his respectful connection with us, it's so obvious to me. He demonstrates this to us over and over on this site and elsewhere. When Tom and I have said hello to Eric, Eric has walked up to us, we didn't walk up to him. Two friends of mine were going through something recently and was largely due to a misunderstanding. Once again one of them was trying to suck me into the middle of it. Once again I refused to get sucked into the middle of it. Instead what I offered was this: It would be foolish to throw away 26 years of friendship, discuss it. Enjoy the band, enjoy friends, coworkers, and life and all its offerings. To quote Forrest Gump, "That's all I have to say about that." All The Best, Joyce
  17. Paul, Thanks for your posts. I found them particularly enjoyable because of your mention of Mark Hudson and Gary Burr. I've seen them perform several times at The Fest for Beatles Fans, saw Gary on Carole King's tour last summer at Radio City, and both Gary, Mark (plus Victoria)at Birdland, NYC about a month ago. These 2 guys are talents to be reckoned with! And I'm looking forward to seeing Richard Marx for 1st time live on Ringo's tour, with Mark Hudson! I posted about Birdland briefly in another thread right after the show: Saw Mark Hudson and Gary Burr perform at Birdland NYC last nite with Victoria Shaw and Bill (I forgot his last name and can't find it on the site today). It was a round robin type setting with acoustic guitars and piano. Mark told a few of his funny stories too. Was very entertaining. Mark's daughter, Sarah, was also there. We spoke to Mark and Gary after the show and they were fun and gracious as always. We congratulated Mark on his achieving All Starr status (he'll be one of Ringo's All Starrs on the tour this summer) and he thanked us, joked that it's "scarrry!" All The Best, Joyce

They're in the area now, before their appearance at the Fest for Beatles Fans in New Jersey 3/31-4/2... All The Best, Joyce
  19. I, too, enjoyed that tv production of "Cinderella!" Didn't occur to me to check on if it's available now. I did discover a soundtrack cd of it a few years ago! It's wonderful! All The Best, Joyce
  20. I stopped listening to top 40 popular music radio somewhere around mid 80's. Country music radio is where I found the talented songwriting, singing, and playing that was suddenly predominantly absent from the other format. I agree with all that all are saying here. Kudos to Eric for starting some of the most fascinating discussion threads I've seen on this board. The only rap I'll listen to and support is Will Smith. I admire him for his talent and taking the other road, proudly. Kids' lack of exposure to good music contributes to where we are now. Children know good music when they hear it. It's the reason why kids who have heard Beatles are absolutely nuts for this music. All you have to do to see evidence of this is to go to a Fest for Beatles Fans or a Paul or Ringo show. They are not dragged there by their parents, kicking and screaming. The joyous enthusiasm of young kids at these events is inspiring to me, and gives me some hope for the future. All The Best, Joyce

    Welcome, Mitch! Great fans and friends of great talent and great site! I see that you agree! All The Best, Joyce
  22. Pierson, I think you misunderstood me. I meant that Terry was low class to post his commentary trashing Raspberries on his own site. I guess I wasn't clear enough, now that I reread what I wrote. Terry deserves all everyone is saying here and more! All The Best, Joyce
  23. How whiny, really... It's a shame that the little green monster appears to inhabit Terry's being. Also very low class to post commentary such as this on your own web site... All The Best, Joyce
  24. Eric Carmen and Faith Hill! Oh my goodness, what a perfect match vocally! Dream come true for my ears. Even Tim McGraw admits that his woman can sing circles around him. All The Best, Joyce
  25. I remember Jane Olivor's hit with her version of "He's So Fine" some years back. Beautiful voice. I'm not familiar with much else she's done...
