  2. I don't know about creatively, but I've read that a man's sexual peak is 19. It was just my luck that I was 39 when I read that. I've been depressed ever since. And the real killer is that I was in the semenary when I was 19.

    Live CD

    Professor Carmen... From some of your posts, I am assuming that you are working on the post production of the live CD. What do you do if you are working on a song that is a classic and there are problems with all the different recordings from the tour. What is your process to remedy the problem? By the way, I really appreciate your posts. They've been well worth the price of tuition and the field trips to Cleveland and New York. Thanks.
  4. Vernor's Ginger Ale is great, but Barq's is the absolute best.
  5. They have been saying that diet sodas will make you go crazy and/or leach all the calcium from your teeth for years... I'm here at the Texas State Hospital for the Criminally Insane to tell you it ain't so. I would tell y'all in person but it's hard to be understood with only three teeth. The big bunny I room with can vouch for that.
  6. We all know that the record producer of today pretty much totally determines the "sound" of what comes out of the studio. How much of the Raspberries studio product was the band and how much was Jimmy Ienner responsible for the sound?
  7. I believe Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman of the Turtles and Flo & Eddie fame used to teach a course at UCLA on the business of being a rock musician. Evidently they were screwed out of massive amounts of money and decided to try to educate some of the new wave of entertainers as to how to ATTEMPT to avoid the pitfalls of the biz. But I'm sure the record label weasels are always thinking one step ahead.
  8. One man's Big Mac is another's fois gras. It astounds me how folks say "My favorite song is better than your favorite song" when it is all a matter of personal taste. My songwriter writes better songs than yours. Is an oak tree more beautiful than a palm? Is a golden retriever better than a collie? Is Pam Anderson more beautiful than Barbara Bush?
  9. My dog relieves himself on the speaker whenever I play ANYTHING by Vanilla Ice.
  10. I saw The Sweet on the 4th of July of 1978 in Biloxi, MS. They were with Eddie Money and Alice Cooper. It was like a war zone in the auditorium because it looked like just about everyone brought in a ton of fireworks. Every time an announcement was made about ejecting anyone shooting off firework, the place erupted with rockets, firecrackers, roman candles, etc. The explosions would finally die down and then they'd make the announcement again and the place would go crazy again. It was a night I will never forget.
  11. Mum's the word??? I thought Grease is the word.
  12. Wasn't "Hey Deanie" written for one of the Dean Martin / Matt Helm movies?
  13. I was told by an industry insider that they are thinking about finishing up their half-time show with a Village People medley. Chalie Watts as the contruction worker Ron Wood as the cowboy Keith Richard as the Indian chief Mick as the motorcycle cop
  14. Paul Shaffer's imitation of Cher's version of "O Holy Night" is the best there is. Be sure to catch Darlene Love's annual "Christmas, Baby Please Come Home" on David Letterman next week. She has been on Letterman every year for the past 20 or so years do "the best rock and roll Christmas song of all time". It always blows me away.
  15. The Mothers of Invention - We're Only In It For the Money had great insert ripoffs of the Sgt. Peppers Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits included my very first poster. Procal Harum had my second
  16. Condoleezza Rice??? I thought that was Eric with a good tan.
  17. Well, I never been to Spain But I kinda like the music Say the ladies are insane there And they sure know how to use it
  18. I think I'd choose "What Kind of Fool Am I" for my first marriage
  19. Suicide Pete? I thought it's been Suicide Badfinger. Haven't they all attempted or succeeded at suicide?
  20. Speaking of "Day After Day"... The first time I heard it on my Chevy Nova AM radio, I thought it was Andy Williams. The opening vocal is spookily like Andy.
  21. Negative? Bet you don't like dodgeball either...
  22. Does every single reference to the word "Raspberry" have to be reported? Let's see... One time when I was working in a machine shop, I saw a guy working with a rasp. Guess what, he had some berries in a baggie on his work bench! A coincidence??? I think not!!!
