  6. It seems thet it is the first step towards the Imperial Rule Assistance Association. I think it is one of the reason that it isn't active recentry here. We should a lively discussion with respect each other. You should not oppress others opinion even if you are not like the opinion. Because it is the way to find brand new and move forward!
  7. Great post Lew! You know, your posts sometimes annoyed me and I got angry, but this time I adore your post! I think Marvin is one of the best poster on this site (as for me, he is the BEST! I admire all his posts) and most important royal fan for the Raspberries. Then why EC treated him so bad? His 2 posts about Kay's thread must really hurt Marvin's pride. I was also shocked and disappointed when I read those posts. Why Why Why Did EC used the words that insult him? EC doesn't need fans anymore? Is he such a person? Might I understanding be mistaken? Why does nobody mentioned about it? I thought again and again. I got sad and got rid of motivation to support EC. But But But...I'm thinking I should ask EC about this matter. This thread gave me a good opportunity. Thank you, Lew. Naeko

  13. 3 years has passed since 3.11 earthquake. So many things have changed in Japan since then. The situation of northeast Japan is still dire especially in Fukushima. This is because of concerns about radiation. Prime minister Abe made an official statement “Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant has completely controlled.†But unfortunately it is NOT true. Radioactive water is through leaking in the pipe, and drain out to the sea even now. The people of Fukushima received less than 5 millisieverts of radiation during the first four months after the nuclear power plant accident. Thyroid exam have also been conducted on 370.000 Fukushima children (under 18) over the past 3 years. The people of Fukushima had lost not only their family, house, estate, firm, family photo album, memorial goods and everything but also their health. Their lives were completely disrupted by the tsunami and nuclear power plant accident. The “Master plan†is also still unfinished. It pains me to think of it. We should sympathize with them and keep thinking “what can I do for them and northeast Japan?†and pray. In addition I would like to tell you our sincerely appreciation who had support the people in northeast Japan. Much donate, thousands of volunteers, dozens of countries sent doctors, the Red Cross………. all over the world. Songs and words also ease our mind. Especially U.S. military in Japan conducted “Operation Tomodachiâ€, 24.000 service members, 189 aircraft and 24 ships had helped us. We always appreciate your sympathy and support. Thank you.
  14. Congratulations, Wim! I wish you the best of luck!!!
  15. March 7, 1982…..it was 32 years ago, Eric played at Osaka (Japan) Rock Super Session(RSS) with the band “Carmine Appice & Friends†Members are Carmine Appice, Eric Carmen, Rick Derringer, Tom Peterson, Duane Hitchings !!!
  16. Thanks Kirk, Foolin' Yes, I thought BNY and Boats Against The Current were written while reminded of same kind of image like this!
  17. I got an info about "The Essential Eric Carmen" from Legacy Japan, it was postponed April.28.
  18. Eric is coming back to music world with the new song “Brand New Yearâ€!!! Shall we express our gratitude to Eric for his brilliant work with our story? How do you feel about the song or how are you impressed with the song? First I’ll tell my story. When I heard “Brand New Yearâ€, I imagined dark, cold ocean. It comes from slow, simple, law-pitched “arpeggio†played by left hand. It sounds over and over again, all through the song from the intro to the end. Then I FOUND! The “arpeggio†means wave! Never ending wave! In the≪Verse≫, every motif were composed just like this, first=law-pitched at the middle=rise end=law-pitched I thought it means another wave, it must be boat! I felt the boat is swaying in the dark ocean, ride on the wave with dude and female. Even though dude is rowing the boat, the current is drifting their boat toward far, far away. Just then, here comes glimmer of the moonlight upon the sky. Dude says “We’ll never let them break us down as long as we still believe†to female. She smiled. Dude starts rowing again, at that time big wave has come. Splash! Here comes ≪Chorus≫. The wave isn’t means a sense of foreboding, it has good feeling! And here comes big wave again, Splash! ≪Bridge≫ tells how deep is their love. They cannot control the destiny of their future just like their boat. But we can see the boat is surely drifting toward happiness! ≪Chorus≫ Then here comes big wave again. Splash! Then moonlight glow-in-the-dark, as soon as the dawn breaks. They gaze each other, smile, hold each other tight….and kiss! Here comes angel upon their head. Angel celebrate them with beautiful “falsetâ€. No fear. They finds hope! The song shows me a sweet, romantic love story. On the other hand, the song reminds me of terrible, horrific disaster occurred in Japan, the earthquake and tsunami…..many people has passed, and the victims had experienced so terrible night. No heat, no phone, no internet, not even the faint hum of electricity. I can remember it was very cold night at the day. They had stayed just only bonfire, they were shivering from the cold. Eric mentioned about the day when he wrote the song. It was similar situation both of them. The night he wrote the song, what did he imagine? I thought if he reminds the people who experienced terrible disaster or dispute. Not only Japan, Philippines, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Syria, Ukraine, Afghanistan……and many other countries. He mentioned about “The Universal†on his comment about “Brand New Yearâ€. “Something that resonates inside every human being, Something EVERYONE has felt†Well, EVERYONE! The song has “The Universalâ€. Everyone can see their pain and find their hope for a better tomorrow on this song! The song means so much. Congratulations! Brilliant song has written to the world by Eric Carmen!!! …….This is my story dedicate for Eric. Who’s next?
  19. Great expectation....... If EC will make preparations for a new band??????
  20. Thank you again EC. Sincerely hope many Japanese fans can read it! I found a interesting news about Eric today. Do you know Mao Asada( a Japanese figure skater)? We hoped that she won Olympic GOLD MEDAL, then she did a complete failure on short program. Everybody thought she has over! Then next day she did perfect on free program with Rachmaninoff piano concert No.2. Many Japanese were deeply moved, include me! Eric mentiond how we Japanese love classic music on his comment. That's true. And now there are many posts on the web like this, "Rachmaninoff piano concert remind me of Eric Carmen"!!!! Isn't it lovery?
