Speaking Of Duets.....


Recommended Posts

CMT Crossroads recently had Bon Jovi and Sugarland do a concert together. It'd be cool for Raspberries to get going with some younger country act; great exposure to a differnent audience and as Eric has said that much of what's good music wise is coming out of Nashville these days, not too far-fetched. I'd vote for someone like Trace Adkins or Keith Anderson, who seem to like to rock a little themselves! (Although I can imagine Eric sharing the mike with Sara Evans too!)

Eric might want to pull a Frank Sinatra one day and do a "Duets" album with a bunch of artists --- a mix of rock tunes and ballads, originals and covers (perhaps Raspberries' "I Can Hardly Believe You're Mine" with Joan Jett, or (start throwing stuff) a cover of "California Nights" with Lesley Gore).

Worked for Jimmy Buffett just a couple of years ago... He discovered that a lot of today's country artists were fans of his in earlier years; much like many great acts point to Eric and the Raspberries as idols of theirs...

Susanah Hoffs is an interesting choice. She's got a very special vocal quality and I love her vulnerability. There are so many great female vocalists it would be really hard to choose just one. Martina McBride's voice is spectacular. And I love, LOVE Faith Hill! As for the American Idol girls, Kelly Clarkson has now had, what FIVE hits from the last record? And just today I was on my way to the gym, punching the buttons on my car radio and I hit this really upbeat, fun, well recorded, kinda countryish song, but it sounds like Keith Moon is playing drums. And I was thinking, this is some of the most exciting drumming I've heard on a pop record in a long, long time and pretty daring for a song like this and then the record ends and the DJ says "That was Carrie Underwood." And I'll tell you guys one more thing. If Kelly Pickler doesn't have a record just as good out by this time next year, I'll eat my hat. e

It sounds like singing just comes so easily for her. She opens her mouth and there it is. Gorgeous sound, too. Both she and Eric have an amazing complement of tone colors in their vocal palettes. Mellifluous and *very* resonant. Like spun gold, but smooth. Ahhhh! What an idea... (Eric and Faith, if you are reading....!)

Buffett is somewhat of a rarity, true. But it worked. (I loved him and Alan Jackson doing "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere") I think it depends on the song; two guys can get away with a "guy" song, but a love song is another story...

Buffett and Jackson are teaming up again. Buffett is doing the soundtrack for some movie this summer and he and Alan have anotehr duet due out from that like next month.
