  1. Thanks for posting the never before seen photo and the news clipping from Hamburg! It might be a "joking caption" or it might be true, but the text from the newspaper says that Customs in Hamburg thought the packages were suspicious when they heard ticking!

    I typed the words into a translator and I don't expect that all of the meaning is accurate, but here is what I got:

    In the packages there was ticking ...

    With boxes under the arm yesterday the members of the American pop group "Raspberries" got off the plane in Hamburg (photo). The Monner? by Customs, however, were suspicious, as it was ticking in the packets. There was uncontrolled laughter: The Raspberries had bought a Cuckoo in Baden Baden.

  2. Hope everyone is spending time having some fun!

    Since today is Independence Day in the U.S. I want to wish a Happy Birthday to the wonderful nation that I live in (plus I feel bad I missed the chance to send birthday greetings to many ec.com members who had birthdays in recent weeks, or has it been months?)

    Happy 4th of July! (Enjoy the fireworks at the end of the long hot day) cool

  3. The Hall has an actual voting committee (check the names shown in the above link), and whether they take into consideration what you and I think, who knows. From those on the voting committee, I know that the following are Raspberries fans:

    David Fricke, Jim Henke, Bill Flanagan, Bob Hilburn, Dave Marsh and Steve Van Zandt

    I hope the voting committee realizes that Eric should be inducted and notices the word "legendary" in the recent article about his visit with the Cleveland students preparing for the Footloose production. It is from the second sentence:

    "The students were thrilled to be able to talk with the legendary singer and songwriter."

  4. This article about the song from a few days agon in SPIN magazine by Marc Hogan says (at the end):

    "But for now, you never know: They could ... go ... all ... the ... way (and, while we're dreaming, could they please bring Canadian power-pop torch-carriers Sloan on tour with 'em?)"

    I think we are all dreaming.
