  1. Helen, that is pretty cute! Advertisers could do a lot with the song/title Hungry Eyes.
  2. Vinnie, That shows the genius of Eric Carmen!
  3. What did I just watch there?🤔
  4. Great to see the translation from what it sounded like on the piano to that great guitar riff in the introduction especially. Well done!
  5. What a nice tribute for Father's Day LC. I know a little of Dave Smalley's songwriting just through the Raspberries. A very nice tender, touching song regarding his daughter. Thanks for posting.
  6. Love that Susie ...that Pat is sandwiched between Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson♥️
  7. Imagine sharing your birthday with blackhawkpat. Sir Paul McCartney should feel quite honoured.😊 Happy Birthday to 2 great musicians!🎉🎂
  8. And... Happy Birthday blackhawkpat! But I'll take that over to the "Everything" forum.
  9. How impressive is this! Sir Elton John performing Your Song on June 4th, 2022 at the Queen's Platinum party. This man is timeless. His voice is spot-on and he is singing the song in the original key!! Stellar piano playing as usual. I bow down to this music legend for this beautiful live rendition and for continuing to share his talents with the world at age 75. I feel so honoured that I got to see him perform in my own home City of Saskatoon 4 times... and especially honoured that I got to see him perform in his final Yellow Brick Road Tour there as well Oct. 1, 2019 before covid shut him down. His many health issues in the past couple of years have not stopped him. There is nothing like hearing an artist sing their famous songs solo with one instrument. Truly the sign of a great artist. Thank you Sir Elton John!
  10. It definitely sounds like the original vocal Matthew.Thanks for posting. But I think I still prefer the original recording with just the piano.
  11. LC: Exquisite review as always. I also admire any musician no matter what age, who continues to promote music. Just to go and see someone as Paul McCartney live and hear him play those famous songs, the famous chords and the famous melody lines would be a treat of a lifetime. And then top it off with incredible players in the band. How inspiring that you have passed your love of his music down to your daughter. Of course his voice has deteriorated. Imagine all the screaming, shouting and high register vocals he was doing in his earlier years on some of those first recorded songs. And he continued to perform all of those songs for that many years. I hold him in very high regard musically. He looks in awesome, physical shape. To experience all of that with a family member and be there in that crowd sharing the same feeling with everyone there..WOW! Thanks for posting that review earlier and the setlist. That was much appreciated.
  12. Instead of raising people up for their strengths and talents, they tear them down for their weaknesses. 🙁
  13. Don't be sorry Michelle, I agree. I currently do not have a dog but was devastated when my German Shepherd died. Truer words were never spoken...God's gift to Humanity!
  14. Willie Nelson (89) And Bob Dylan (81) are still touring. I've seen Willie Nelson plays some concerts with his family.
  15. Oh I hope the October dates will still be okay. So far looks like it cuz I'm excited to attend in Saskatoon.
  16. I agree Kirk. I think he's very genuine. I liked his reaction. He maybe could have done a little bit of research before he posted online. After he watched the video, he could have easily found out and noted that the original members were all in this video. But maybe as far as reaction videos go, that's all they put on... the initial reaction.
  17. One of the best songs ever! The songwriting Genius of Brian Wilson! With their harmonies they do such a good job here . You can really hear in this song where Eric Carmen picked up some of his inspirations for some of his songs. Thanks for posting Kirk.
  18. Thanks Bernie for confirming that. I was pretty sure it was not true as well.
  19. Well, this is as close as I can get to attending a concert headliner called Carmen. In fact, years ago when I first started Googling and I wanted to Google Eric Carmen,this is exactly what came up. I've heard others say that as well.
  20. This will be awesome for you and your daughters ...just the experience alone. Can't wait to hear the reviews. Enjoy!!
  21. I've seen this a number of times and love it every time. These guys work so well together as musicians.
  22. LC... Thank you! I am definitely feeling the "spirit" in John Stewart's music as you know. And I'm already working on some more playlists. No worries... you are not crazy... At least not yet... I'm pretty sure.🤔
  23. Kirk, thank you for alerting me to this album. It's exquisite! Angelic vocals on all songs. I personally love the cover In My Room.
  24. Matthew, one thing about John Stewart, there's no shortage of the number of versions he has for his songs. It's quite amazing actually. Each version brings out something unique whether it be a different arrangement or a different vocal approach.
  25. This song deserves at least one listen. It is so calming. The reason I'm posting today is because my mom who is in long-term care and and has dementia, is fidgety and alarmed by any new sounds or noises. Elvis Presley, who was her favourite, annoys her now and she gets extremely agitated listening to even her favourite of his songs. However, when I play this beautiful song from 1971, Bolinas, by John Stewart (and his future wife Buffy Ford), my mom completely calms herself. I've tried it three times in a row now and it's the same reaction each time. When it gets to the part "When the world was spinning a song" she wants to touch the phone every time. The first time it got to that part a single tear rolled down her cheek. This song is pure beauty in my opinion. Another song I played for her when she needs to be calmed down is China Sky by John Stewart.. awesome Mastery on the guitar. Thankyou LC for your subtle approach in promoting John Stewart's music. The power of music is truly great ..we owe it to ourselves to experience as much as possible.
