  1. I think Joan and Cherie are afraid that the songs on the tribute album will sound better than the originals...which IMO won't be hard to do.
  2. I may not think as "big" as everyone else, but I would like to see Eric, Scott, Jim and a couple other guys/girls ripping thru Eric's catalog at the House of Blues. It doesn't have to be a big production - just five guys having fun playing some great music. Just plug in the guitars, turn up the amps, and let 'er rip. I hate the idea of all of that talent going to waste.
  3. Good list. Glad to see the Raspberries getting some recognition. We could all come up with our own separate lists too though (Cheap Trick, Tommy Keene, Thin Lizzy, Badfinger, Montrose, Foghat, The Knack, Graham Parker, The Go-Go's, along with the Raspberries)
  4. Sorry to break ranks, but I prefer Makin it Easy or Hard to Get Over a Heartbreak.
  5. I thought it was a picture of Suzi Quatro.
  6. Raspberries song - Party's Over; Favorite Wally song ever would be "Name of the Game" on the second Fotomaker album.
  7. I was never a fan, however they did a great version of the Young Rascal's, "I Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore." Never saw them live though...they didn't make it down to the Gulf Coast.
  8. It's my favorite song from his solo career.
  9. Solution - put the two new songs on itunes. I'll gladly pay for the download. Or release a CD single for $10. I really really want to have them but I can't justify laying out $100 for them.
  10. I was the second person to order the special Live on Sunset Strip for the $125. Now, in order to get the two new songs...I have to lay out another $100? There doesn't seem to be anything new in the package except a t-shirt. No offense, but this doesn't seem to be right.
  11. Cool photo and story. For an art director, that guy John Hoernle had questionable taste when it came to hair style.
  12. I hate the Clive Davis version. Love the original EC version.
  13. Easy. Game 6 of the 1993 World Series. Phillies are up by 1 run going into the ninth. Jim Fergosi decided to bring Mitch Williams into the game. At that point I was throwing harder than Williams. He walks the first guy. That brings Joe Carter to the plate. One pitch later, the season is over.
  14. They look like a recent crop of MBAs from John Carroll U. instead of four guys who rocked the Agora.
  15. I have good memories from the 3 shows I attended - the first one in the Cleveland HOB, the second BB King's show, and the first one in the Highline. The first show was extra special though. Since there will be no more Raspberries shows, it would be really nice if any of the other shows that were recorded could be released...if nothing else, put on the website for download. I know, I know, maybe it won't sound perfect - but who cares. Certainly not me, that's for sure.
  16. It's just another stupid list to generate discussion (and sales). The only top 500 list that matters to me is my favorite 500 songs.
  17. Two words: Abbey Road.
  18. Of course, Wally sang "older and wider" instead of older and wiser during the reunion shows on Party's Over.
  19. What can I say...I like the rockers. My favorite bands and songs have 2 (plugged in) guitars, bass and drums. But that's why there's chocolate and vanilla ice cream (not to mention Moose Tracks and Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl).
  20. My Top 10 - in no particular order: Go All the Way (Live Version) - Jim's drum roll near the end does it for me. Tonight - This is THE power pop classic. This is benchmark that all other power pop songs are compared to. Overnight Sensation - Just an incredible song from top to bottom. Play On - Great guitar riff, I love Scott's vocals. I Can Hardly Believe You're Mine - I've been touting this song for the past 5 years. Should have been single #2 from Starting Over. I Don't Know What I Want - I still remember I first heard this song - I jumped out of my chair and said "holy sh*t!". I was as huge Who fan at the time. Ecstacy - The drums, the guitars, great hooks. I Wanna Be With You - I think I like the live version a little more than the studio version because the drums just blast off over the cheering crowd. I'm kind of glad the video failed that night. Nobody Knows - Just a great song all around. I really like Scott's version too. Party's Over - I know, this song is screaming out 1974, complete with the cowbell, but I really like it because it's kind of a down and dirty rocker - something you wouldn't expect from the berries. Makin' It Easy - Just a feel good country rocker. I wish the lyrics had a little more substance though. I remember playing it when I was in high school and my friends all thought it was the Eagles.
  21. They sounded better than I expected. I really thought they'd open with My Generation. And Ringo's boy got a lot of time in front of the camera. He's an incredible drummer.
  22. I hear they're working on a new album. If it's out, they'll slip in a new song. Otherwise, they'll play: Baba O'Reilly, My Generation, Pinball Wizard, Won't Get Fooled Again. Too bad Daltry can't hit the high notes anymore. He had such a phenominal rock n roll voice. Maybe they'll pre-record the vocals.
