  1. I've been dying to post on this topic since Wednesday, but the site wasn't allowing me to log in (Wierd but THANK YOU Bernie for helping me get back in!) I happened to visiting former Hollie Terry Sylvester at a show in Massachusetts on Wednesday, and I had the honor of being the first to tell him of the nomination. He was VERY excited to hear the news, and he announced it to the crowd that night - there was a truly rousing reception when he shared the info. What The Hollies has going for them is that they are the only nominee with a strong presence in the 60's (as well as Terry's era from 1969-74). The others are mainly 70's/80's artists. My picks are : The Hollies Genesis ABBA KISS and (begrudingly...under political pressure) LL Cool J
  2. Happy birthday - to the only person on this board who loves The Hollies more than I! And who always has the coolest youtube discoveries for us to explore.... Hofner65
  3. I liked the movie personally. Moved a bit slow at times, but what English film that leans in the "arsty" direction doesn't? I didn't know that much about WHY Brian acted the way he did, so this movie was uite entertaining & informative for me personally. The butler did it. ;^)
  4. Walt Disney was right...it IS a small world after all, yet this is even more meaningful being confirmed by you two. Now I wished I talked to Marco a little more to make a stronger 'connection'. Eric, that was SO cool what you did for him. He was beaming as he tried to describe his joy, which was a language unto itself. But I was running off to the Hard Days Night Hotel for a pub lounge gig - where the one and only Klaus Voormann was in the crowd for a couple songs! (But I didn't put down the guitar quick enough to meet him before he went to the elevator to his room I'm home in 'my' Liverpool just now. We made it safe, thanks Tim.
  5. Sorry to say 'no'. A band called The Cryers will be doing that. I think their leader even helped put the show together. But I will be joining Terry & Joey for their 2 week tour of Australia in late Oct/early Nov. THAT...I cannot wait for!
  6. I'm typing this from my friend's house where I'm staying in Liverpool UK, as I was blessed with an invitation to perform throughout the city that bore The Beatles, at Int'l Beatle Week. Yesterday at the big convention, I saw a Raspberries CREW shirt on an attendee and asked "so...who are YOU on ericcarmen.com"?! That question was a bit confusing for him, but in slightly broken English, he said he was from Brazil and had seen the band at the HOF show in Cleveland! And, that it was the second time he had done so...that he had hung out with the boys backstage...plus, that he had been given the shirt as a gift. I loved hearing that story, amongst the overload of Beatles music and chat that this festival provides. And I truly enjoyed the experience of meeting someone new, from so far away, who was a Raspberries fan. Bravo to the band and posse' for providing this gentleman the shirt, and memories to last his lifetime. He was glowing the entire time he was telling the story!
  7. Yes...very sad. The man got around a LOT of studios in his time. But at least his spirit lives on in his music.
  8. Happy Birthday to the most creative post-er on this board. You never cease to amaze with your brand of humor!
  9. Have the hap-hap-happiest of birthdays Darlene!
  10. Sorry, I'm a day late - was out of town for McCartney's Saturday night show. Happy Birthday Wally!
  11. I truly had the best one ever today. No arguing amongst the kids, now 14/12/12. And even THEY said, it's not about the stuff we did, it's that they spent TIME with me. Pretty heady stuff for pre-teens. I am truly blessed. I hope every father on this board had as great, if not greater, Father's Day as me.
  12. Sorry I'm late to the dance....happy birthday!!!
  13. All right Bernie! We'll have to hook up somehow before the show....I, too and a PM.com member and got 9th row on the "field side" on the Rusty Anderson side. If my damn van hadn't broken down and needed repair, I would have had more balance available on my credit card to try for center seats like you. Part of me is just giddy that I'll be on the actual field that my beloved Mets play on...even if it is at the "new" Shea!
  14. The happiest of belated birthdays to you, Kiwi/Marilyn. So sorry I could not be take part of your "American Tour"...tough being a father to 4 teens and having a band on weekends...but things are looking up for me to seeing YOU in December! The promoter just last week said is working on 2-3 shows in NZ with Terry & Joey. Alas, Billy S. cannot come due to his new commitment to Peter Noone. (But I'm happy for him, securing steady work with an entertainment LEGEND!) I hope your 'birthday buzz' lasts for weeks on end! Paul
  15. Maybe I'm late in saying this, but did not see any past threads... I rented Bedtime Stories on DVD for my kids this weekend, and "All By Myself" came on halfway through the flick, when the Adam Sandler character was...well, all by himself. Amazing that the song continues to 'say it all' after all these year, no matter the generation.
  16. Oddly, and sadly the passing of this great producer wasn't publicized much. And almost two full weeks after the fact. Ron was there during the very first Beatles sessions. He produced PS I Love You and the Love Me Do single, Ringo-version. He was definitely the "6th Hollie." Or 7th.
  17. Same for me, Paul. Sorry I'm late. Hope you had a great one. Congrats on your success with Taylor, too.
  18. NICE!!!!!!!!! I can never EVER get tired of that song (no matter the mix).
  19. Happy Happy Birthday Sherry Berry Baby!
  20. Well, there are a TON of common threads here. I don't want to sound like a broken record with some of my choices. Here goes in no particular order: 1) Paul McCartney - Toronto 2005, 11th row...and the night I just knew that Linda was the one for me! 2) The Raspberries - THE reunion at the Cleveland HOB 2005. Nice & close up front, right between Eric & Dave! 3) Ringo & The All Starr's 2000 (w/Eric!) in Syracuse NY. Front row and I got Ringo's towel! Jack Bruce - oh...my...GAWD! 4) A Walk Down Abbey Road - 2000, Turning Stone Casino, Verona NY. BACK STAGE! Got to meet Alan Parsons, Todd Rundgren, Ann Wilson and John Entwistle of THE WHO - my all time bass GOD!! And for completely selfish reasons... 5) Badfinger's Joey Molland at The Cavern Club, Liverpool UK on August 29, 2006. I played bass for Joey, and The Spencer Davis Group opened for us. But to be fair and take me back out of it.... 5) Brian Wilson & his band performing SMILE! at Saratoga in August 2005. Hearing those songs, including the other Beach Boys hits, played perfectly like the record was a very emotional experience.
  21. Thank you EVERYONE for all the well wishes. Darlene, you made me blush with your kind words. I appreciate it more than words can say. I enjoyed this birthday weekend greatly - I had two band gigs that kicked a$$, enjoyed today with my three kids (who I onlt see every other weekend) and best of all... My wife got me a tattoo...on her! It was a brilliant piece of art on the small of her back, called "Forever" - a direct reference to our wedding at Strawberry Fields in Aug 2006 - and it had strawberries scattered throughout the design AND she worked in the the first intitials of my three kids (all "C's"). And a long time friend of mine gave me a custom, hand made Fender Strat for my birthday too! Holy cow...he gave it to me with no conditions or anything. My jaw is still on the floor over that. I am truly blessed. So, thank you again for all these birthday greetings!
