I'm going nuts out here in CA waiting for the 'Berries to come out west. Hopefully this will happen before they're all in their 70s! Of course, if it does take that long, they can always change some of the song titles...

"Go Half the Way"

"I Wanna Be With My Doctor"

"Overnight Medication"

"Let's Depends"

"I'm in a Rocker"

"I Reach for the Clapper"

"Hard to Get Over a Heartburn"

"Rock and Roll Grandmama"

"I Can't Get it Moving"

Stir crazy in CA.... crazycrazy

After following the Raspberries for as long as I can remember I finally got the chance to meet Eric personally. Sometimes dreams do come true. In Cleveland I asked his wife and she said yes. What a moment I will never forget, she was a doll and very nice. I went backstage talked a while had a picture that now hangs in my office. It is one of my most cherished keep sakes that I have today. Eric is one nice man and will always have my support. If he comes to Cincinati I hope I can show him what a great town this is and the Raspberries fan we have he still love the music. After all we all have memories of the music and the times we shared. What a BAND...........

Mike, it would be nice to see the band come to Cincinnati. That way I wouldn't have to make the 4 hour drive to load out and then load in. What a dream: The rest of the road crew coming to my town. That would be a first. OK I'm awake and now I have to get in the driving mode:::

Cincinnati to Cleveland::::::: 4 hours

Pack it up load it out :::::: 3.5 hours

Drive to Atlantic City::::::: 8.3 hours

Set up / Sound Check/ Show :: 16 hours

Tear down/pack/ load::::::::: 4 hours

Drive back to Cleveland:::::: 8.3 hours

Load in / reset rehearsal hall: 4 hours

Drive back to Cincinnati:::::: 4 hours

The chance to be part of the greatest rock & roll show in the world PRICELESS !!!!!!!!

and thats why we do it........

Well, I guess you West Coasters can be happy now that you have your shows! You won't have to worry now about having to wait until the only songs the band can still perform are...

"(Put On Your Bifocals And) Come Around and See Me"

"I Saw the Light (Through My Cataracts)"

"Don't Wanna Say Goodbye (But I'm On My Deathbed)"

"With You In What's Left of My Life"

"Goin' Nowhere Tonight (Because My Power Chair Is In the Shop)"

"Every Way I Can (Without Hurting Myself)"

"Nobody Knows (Where I Put My Glasses)"

"It Seemed So Easy (But It Sure Isn't Anymore)"

"Might As Well (Give Up)"

"If You Change Your Mind (Or Forget What You Decided to Do Anyway)"

"Scooterin' Around"

"Tonight (Because I May Not Make It to Tomorrow)"

"Last Dance (And I DO Mean 'Last' Dance)"

"Makin' It Easy (The Viagra Song)"

"Ecstasy (Wish I Remember What It Felt Like)"

"(Buy This Power Scooter With No) Money Down"

"Play On (Until We Collapse)"

"Party's Over (For Good)"

"All Through Part of the Night"

"It's Cold Outside (And I'm Catching Pneumonia)"

I think you get the idea...

And another thing.....this reminds me that Eric and the Berries is the only major acts(to my best of my knowledge)that Wierd Al Yankovic has not done a parody of....the only other exception is Prince(who gave Al the thumbs down any time he asked).....

Isn't Yankovic from Ohio or therabouts?
