  1. If 300 needed to be sold to make this project a GO, and get the 'regular' edition into even more hands, then I'm glad I could help!

    You've crossed your hurdle, so hurry up and sign the darn things, and even sell more if you need to.

    I missed the concerts, and I'm NOT going to miss the DVD. And I'm ecstatic that I get the bonus stuff!

    294 and counting

    Excellent--page 5 is MINE!

  2. I hate to bring this back on topic, but I just saw the MD piece for the first time. Holy cow, what a voice!

    I don't see anything out of the ordinary, just a great performer doing his best.

    And I love public speaking, but suck at small talk/small group mingling...

  3. 1) Could you ever have imagined that 30+ years later your musical legacy would be so treasured, and that fans would STILL clamor for MORE new music from you?

    2) The Hair. The early-mid 80's Hair. What's up with the Hair?

    3) Believe it or not, you're up there with Lennon/McCartney and Brian Wilson. My top 3 songs EVER: 1) In My Life 2) Let's Pretend 3) God Only Knows. Try to pretend that your work isn't on par.

    4) Boxers or briefs?

    5) Beer, wine, or the hard stuff?

    6) Paper or Plastic?

  4. Eric, I saw you at Wolf Trap on the "Eric Carmen and his All Star Band (with Ringo Starr)" tour. During the show, you remarked about the great acoustics at Wolf Trap. I've been attending concerts/plays there since the early 80's, and it is a WONDERFUL venue. Lawn or pavillion, a good time is guaranteed for all.

    I think the band that was most "tuned" to it was Lyle Lovett and his Large Band. Very big, full sound.

    What would you say is your favorite outside venue?

  5. I remember hearing in a Paul Simon interview that one thing he ALWAYS does is make the first lyric of his songs a real statement, such as "A man walks down the street" or "I am just a poor boy".

    Do you have any tricks or cues that you ALWAYS include in songs you write, either lyrically or melodically?

  6. I agree. My wife and I both love the same 70's pop we grew up with. ABBA, Barry, Neil (saw him last year in concert!), Partridge Family, Bee Gees, BCR, and the list goes on. Our Road Trip bag is filled with those.

    Where we diverge is my love of Rush, Van Halen, Iron Maiden, Dio, Black Sabbath, RHCP, etc...
