  1. Marvin can encourage Wally. Fans here are amongst the greatest in the world. Incredibly with fewer people. I hope Wally can get back to his roots, or songs that he liked, early in his career. Maybe a CD lie, "Wally and Friends Play Badfinger, The Choir, etc." Something he would really enjoy. And how about Christmas songs, with a violin riff, like he plays on guitar. Wally played violin, which would bring him back to his music beginnings. A riff intro to 'Away In A Manger' It would have been better if Kay responded to The Raspberries fans with just a correction, Like, the article that the fans were upset about was written months ago. Not intended to coincide with Eric's new CD. And for Wally, it really is a Brand New Year. Heck, he even gets paid for past work. That's pretty cool of Eric. But Wally nissed the whole prospective of the years past. Everyone wrote songs, but The Record Label wanted certain songs, for the best of the band, they felt. So, hopefully, more songs later for Wally.
  2. Eric has now been redeemed, as I was reading a script, today, to co-write and produce - this thought came to me: Might as well raise the facebook total even higher now. For an incredible insight, I just happened to think about- Hey, could someone please tell Kay's friends on facebook that Wally is on Eric's new CD? And that Kay should be praising him, instead? -Psst, Wally is on Eric's CD, folks. Please tell Kay. He gets credit, too. Imagine seeing a counselor- Let me see, Wally is on Eric's new CD, and you're upset?
  3. I would keep on working, writing, playing music. Exercising. Passing on songs, if I was a famous person, to new bands, or a band. Writing funny stories.
  4. Happy Eastover. Hey, Eric invented a good word.
  5. Good one, Eric, from page one. More to read for everyone at The Mystery of the pineal gland / Medici That's Dr. Medici Scroll down for more terms, articles, diagrams, etc.
  6. Wally's gets into the time warp machine and hears, "Wally, Wahhhlyy!! When Wally gets out of the time warp machine, he sees his earlier self. With the double guitar, and the V-Guitar. Confidant, struttiin' and striding again. He says," That was me?"The earlier self looks at Wally and says, "I have a concert to play. Time to go"
  7. Apparently, there is some "New" song with Paul and John Lennon. With a technique called, "Mashing", two songs are put together. John's "Imagine" is speeded up. While Paul's "Band On The Run" is slowed down. For an interesting music experience. But, I don't know, for sure, But, maybe it's going to be out soon.
  8. He's got a Director's credit in the new movie, "Jersey Boys" Due out on June 20th About the Four Seasons Band.
  9. Great that your business is selling vinyl records on this Vinyl Records Day celebration. Several artists are distributing vinyl records. Look up the list, if you like.
  10. Yes, ira. And the Afikoman, or Matzah, half is broken at the meal. And the other half is hidden. When someone finds it, later, though it is rarely taught- Some believe, that looking back at the past, both halves of the Afikoman represent the broken body of the Messiah. The most revered rabbi, over the last 100 years, who is the most respected of them all, says this is Jesus, the messiah, to other faiths. That he is the one who is being waited for.
  11. And, don't forget, for the ladies, that Stella has her new line of clothing out.
  12. Lucky for everyone there, Mike. Ringo is doing a lot of concerts in your area.
  13. I looked up an artilcle about The Raspberries, awhile back. It's titled, "Fresh Raspberries" by Cleveland Magazine.com Issue date, April, 2007 That's when I fouind out about Wally's concert, last week. When I was reading about Wally I listen to all the bandmembers equally, because it's their own perspective. I accept all the bandmembers as well, regardless of what they thought. I wanted to hear from Dave- About his perspective of the band. Well, every bandmember was quoted. -And, even Kay. I found it interesting that Kay would let Wally do that interview, from what she said in the Fresh Raspberries article. Online, Wally doesn't like to write, so Kay conveys his messages and thoughts. That's a unique situation.
  14. Unless games means that Wally couldn't play all of his choices of songs, from other bands. And his own songs. I meant the 50 year anniversary of The Beatles. Called in by fans, who talked about The Raspberries, on the same show. Here's more positives- I just realized that Ace Frehley, of the early KISS band is also working on his own animation film. ( His own project) Who knows, maybe Wally can work with him. Imagine the two great guitarists working together. I think Ace was consulted on The Guitar Hero game. They've both had ups and downs in life, like everyone else. Ace said he has ADHD. He would probably be great to work with, for Wally. Maybe Jesse can work with him, on a new project. (Read the latest Rolling Stone Story, on KISS, and scroll down, for his story). I would take those riffs from all those songs that he thought he deserved credit for, and write new songs. Put them throughout your new songs. There you go. It's up to you.
  15. I read the article, Marvin. I see why Gene is a businessman. He also admits his shortfallings, in the article.
  16. The Raspberries were mentioned twice, by fans, on the same radio show during the big 50 year anniversary. I was at Agua Caliente Casino, around 1:40 am, when they played GATW, loudly, because the crowd got louder and louder. Wally shouild start a music project, for an animation film, or something. I've always supported Wally. I think, if it was me, whatever Wally said, I'd turn to the next musician to get the song started. Whatever it would be. Professional on stage need to be together. What I would do, if I were Wally, is to take that famous intro, and put it to a new song. Then, slow or speed up the playing. Play and write what you want. Here's a, perhaps, therapeutic title: This Time, It's Mine. Not intended as a joke.
  17. That was fantastic, Eric. It was the greatest earlier move in your career.. And, Ace agreed with Paul of KISS- that some bands with replacement members have been allowed into The Hall, while others haven't. And, I don't think that Ace has publishing or patent rights on latter KISS products or it's images. So, he couldn't go out and play as a KISS cover band, since I think he doesn't own that brand name. KISS always plays as KISS, extending their image and songs, of earlier and latter times. I have never heard of them playing, currently, as a KISS cover band. Every professional goes by their brand or vocation name. Like a doctor, or business. Just because someone isn't in their business anymore still allows that business, brand or doctor to coninue, into the future, also.
  18. And, the question to ask, in regards to sports, is, 'Has there ever been former athletes from the same sports team name and brand, put in their SportsHall Of Fame, and a player or players from the same team, decades later? Profoundly, the answer is, 'Yes" But why? Because the latter player earned everything he did, like the earlier athelete. And newer KISS members earned everything that their name is attached to. They played on multiplatinum records. And they earned it, all by themselves. The former members didn't play on their albums. The newer albums give them credit. And, promoting the brand name, just like any athelete does, by carrying the team name from fifty years more or less.

  20. Happy birthday, and to everyone on the board.
  21. He's starting again, June 6th, with a summer tour. 18 concerts in june, starting at Ontario, Canada. His peace and love celebration will be in July. With Todd Rudgren, Toto's Steve Lukather, Mr. MIster's Richard Page, Santana's Greg Roli, and Drummier Gregg Bisonnete.
  22. KISS will be on The Tonight Show, with Jimmy Fallon, friday, April 11th. I don't know what songs they will play, if they play at all then. With Anne Hathaway, tuesday, Kevin Costner wednesday. Stevie Nicks and Dave Grohl thursday, There is a huge contest by KISS to who can tell them how to celebrate their epic 40th anniversary, With money to be paid to the winner of the contest, in 500 words or less. When KISS plays, they are playing with The Brand name in mind. Now the CEO of The Hall says they are not considering the whole body of work, by KISS. This means the multiplatinum albums. Each new member has played for 10, and 20 years, except for a five year time, when the originals came back. Here's what I believe Ace and the CEO have missed, using sports and doctors as a comparison: And Ace, who is finishing his new album, should be promoting music, and the band, just like former sports players give workout clinics, on how to play the game. If they like a certain professional sports team, the former players are considered to be members of the same team, with the same brand name. Even if the first group played 10 years, and the next group played for five years. The newer players are current members, of the same brand name team, from way back. If someone was the first opthamologist doctor, that next doctor is equal to the former. And maybe the newer doctor invents something, unlike the original member. But, they are still members of the same vocation. If you played team sports, you were a member of a team from the same alma mater as a current team member. They ought to buy jackets for the induction, with the current members showing the inside of their jackets with a photo, showing they played for KISS, when Gene and Paul walk up to the stage. And signed, KISS Member, Forever. They just put on a big show at their first AFL game. Over 12,000 fans. 4500 more than the average AFL attendence. Over 300 NFL players have played in the AFL League, making it a top notch league. With Steel Panther playing, guitarist Nita Strauss singing The Anthem, and Lemmy. Their team was lowered from the ceiling. Dancing cheer leaders in bikinis, during breaks in the game. Lasers, etc.

    Aerosmith Tour

    They said they will announce a summer tour, with Slash, very soon. Joan Jett, along with Axl Rose, and Korn, are to be honored at Revolver Golden Gods Awards, April 23rd. Alice Cooper will give Joan her award. Joan is the first female to be honored. Alice said that Joan deserves the award, if anyone deserves it the most. Axl will receive a lifetime achievement award. Slash said the reason he plays guitar is because of 1976 album by Guns N" Roses.
  25. Paul and Gene, of The KISS Band are very savy. they are playing an acoustic concert, tonight At The San Manuel Casino. They learned the game as entertainment and business. I had read that they have the most patents of any rock band in history. I thought I read over 3,000 patents. I'm really thinking 300, to my self, if that was a type-o errror. I was hearing two RRHOF stories. One, that the original members were to be inducted. Second, that everyone deserved to be inducted. With the last two being the ones. It seemed like the hall asked for the first two, then it was decided by the band that the next two should get in, too. My friend, who is a promoter, says he can make 50 to 75,000 dollars from 100 to 250 dollar seats, in one night!! And, another friend tells me to tell the place where he will entertain, to pay for airfaire, or busfare. Also for The room, and $100 per day dining fee, for each person in the music band. After that, the entertainment fee, for performing and singing. That's how he does business, each event. And what he told me to do, when he's signing on for a concert.
