  1. May you have the most joyous birthday of your life, be blessed with great company, love and health. You're one of the most valued, polite members on this site.
  2. I had her confused with somebody else who seldom posts. So tired and it's raining again. My bad. Murphy's Law's Fault.
  3. Many hours ago, and I'm not certain since I went to my doctor's office and my bank today, I did see her avatar as she had signed in for a few moments. Her profile revealed less than 100 posts. Must be shy?
  4. This one's for you since I can't speak Japanese.
  5. Bumping, but I'd like to inform everybody not all Canadians love Rush. Must be an acquired taste, like Lady Gaga. (Ick). Molson? No. Labatts Blue anytime over that (insert expletive here). Five Blues and I am totally stewed and smiling. No fair making fun of Canadians. We are good neighbors, really.
  6. Lovely, I have to shut down because some scam artist said he was going to fix my computer. What I said to him was too rude to read, and he wanted money. My bank said NO DEAL. Naeko, you'll be a star!
  7. I'd love to see Burton Cummings of The Guess Who, but he is very busy still writing, producing and recording. The guy can vocalize most other singers spot on,and learned mostly the same way Eric Carmen did. Naeko, thank you from a wonderful 'flash from the past'. Talent like that is rare these days. EC, where are you?
  8. Darlene, wearing that mustard seed necklace means you have a of of faith. Something we all need to hold on to, especially these days.
  9. Thanks to Kirk and circumstances within our control, Eric Carmen got his birthday card! Should we send Interpol to find the other members who did not wish him Happy Birthday on this site? No, nobody should draft a book titled "The Death of............Forum" yet.
  10. It sure is. Last night as I was trying to post the story, I had an open tab for one of Paul Anka's musical videos and had to ask for help to remove it, or folks would have seen "Let Me Get to Know You." These days, it seems with that fire, wildfire out west, city floods, my mistakes, we Canadians are batting a thousand. We takes things in stride. The recording artists must be rather unhappy. It's nickname was 'Rush's Abbey Road'!
  11. Many legendary musician had been hosted by Le Studio in the Laurentian Mountains. The most famous rock singers, bands and folk singers were, and until 2008 they made use of it. *A fire this Thursday morning has destroyed Le Studio, a historic recording studio nestled in Quebec's Laurentian Mountains, about 90 kilometres northwest of Montreal, whose legendary former clients include Rush, David Bowie and The Police. Provincial police received a call about the blaze around 5:30 a.m. Firefighters found evidence at the scene that suggests the fire may have been purposely set, Radio-Canada reports.* (French Canadian version of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation). David Bowie, Rush, April Wine, and many more put out over 150 albums from that studio in the 70s and 80s. The cause has yet to be determined, but arson is suspected.
  12. Enjoy your birthday as much as you can. Hopefully your friends and family have given you all the presents and love you deserved and the weather is beautiful. I cannot do emoticons quite well or send you a virtual cake, but I shall dedicate a song for you! Craig Ruhnke's Summer Girl
  13. Eric, just relax and do whatever you'd love to do. Your fan base is large and hopes to see you back here soon.
  14. No intention of changing the subject, but Burton collaborated with Rick Nelson as well. Glen Campbell's last song, "I'm Not Gonna Miss You", was meant for his offspring and most likely the fanbase. We can make Alzheimer's old history. I believe his soul will indeed miss those he cared about.
  15. I'll second that, Kirk. Wakey wakey Mr. Hogya!
  16. One dude who shall be remembered for manners, decency and talent.
  17. * Glen Campbell, the grinning, high-pitched entertainer who had such hits as Rhinestone Cowboy and spanned country, pop, television and movies, has died. He was 81. Campbell's publicist Sandy Brokaw says the singer died Tuesday morning in Nashville. No cause was immediately given. Campbell announced in June 2011 that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and that it was in its early stages at that time. Campbell was one of the biggest stars of the late 1960s and 1970s. He sold more than 45 million records, had 12 gold albums and 75 chart hits. He co-starred with John Wayne in the 1969 movie True Grit and had a weekly audience of some 50 million people for the Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour on CBS from 1969 to 1972.* Mr. Campbell's last album. "Adios", has been released. Sources: CBC News Online. Updates upcoming. Eight children! Where'd he find the time?
  18. Eric Carmen is making money from the royalties in his sleep, we hope. If he isn't I have a long list of lawyers who can cross the border. "The Killers" version? Heck no.
  19. The person who wore the 200 pound costume to portray Godzilla has passed away at age 88. Haruo Nakajima. Anybody who knows their history would recall people were building bomb shelters fearing nuclear war during the mid-fifties. Godzilla was an irradiated lizard, a mythical creature. I don't want to read about North Korea trying this sort of thing. (Typing this under my concrete, lead-lined bed. Hopefully the kids have theirs, too.)
  20. You can like it, anybody can like it, cover versions are good for having a spin. I prefer Raspberries' version.
  21. Raspberries was a group of 'epic' proportions and now I'm stymied, and craving raspberries. Maybe Todd Rundgren has some! They are in season right now. You know you walked into that one I bet Mr. Carmen and Mr. Rundgren mutually respect each other.
  22. You are healing. Remember that. Even these days I cannot read the news. Some folks have no right to make babies or babysit. We can always get Natasha (with another actress's voice since June Foray played Rocky and Natasha) and... My Dad raised me a fighter. Somebody here in the house stepped on my foot deliberately, and her blooming shin still hurts. I didn't get punished for defending myself. Just because I pay rent doesn't mean anybody on staff owns me. (I do half their job as they're lazy). Made for good comic relief, I must say.
  23. Speaking of Burton Cummings, his friend in show business, Neil Young, not born in Toronto, but another small town, has made an announcement (and I wish Eric Carmen would take his advice and do the same): *Neil Young recorded his 1976 acoustic album "Hitchhiker" in a single day, but until now fans could only dream of getting their hands on it. After sitting in Young's vaults for more than four decades, the Toronto-born rocker has marked Sept. 8 for its official release. Recorded in a Malibu studio, "Hitchhiker" is one of several elusive "lost albums" in Young's repertoire. It features two never-released tracks, "Hawaii" and "Give Me Strength," and early versions of songs like "Pocahontas" and "Powderfinger," which later appeared on his 1979 album "Rust Never Sleeps." On Friday, the album's title track arrived on streaming music services and in digital stores. An alternate cut of the track appears on 2010's "Le Noise." Pre-sales of "Hitchhiker" are available on Young's website as a standalone CD or vinyl, or packaged with an official "Hitchhiker" campfire mug.* The Canadian Press (Via The Hamilton Spectator) Tell Marvin I tried calling everybody in music land here to get "The Stampeders" into our Hall of Fame, but the lines were busy. Burton, if you're really wonderin' what I'm doin' in your backyard...
  24. "Born to Be Wild" comes to mind whenever certain motorcycle gangs in our area ride around in their colors. These days, they're just having fun, unless you mess with them. Actually, they'll do a ride to raise funds for the Christmas drive, too, and that surprised me. Later, I may need to bump this thread for a well-known rocker who's releasing another album in September.
  25. He's quite multitalented, James. Do I really have to slow down the words to "Albert Flasher"? Yup. He was given a flute and performed spot on! Blew the audience's minds. He's the Canuck version of Eric Carmen... but not as gorgeous.
