Up On The Roof


Recommended Posts


This week we've got a simple snapshot taken by a Japanese fan on a Tokyo rooftop during Eric's visit to that country in 1979. Enjoy!

When I come home feelin' tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet
Up on the roof

I get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat race noise down in the street
Up on the roof

On the roof, the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let's go up on the roof

Up on the roof

"Up on the Roof"

and now...

You TOOK my breath away!
I want it back again
I don't know what to say
I don't know how to feel

You knocked my headlights out
So turn them on again
I can't see where I'm going
I can't tell where I've been

I don't know how to feel
This hasn't been my day
Seems like I've lost a wheel
You took my breath away

You took my breath away...

Thank you Bernie!!

As I've said before, I was completely taken aback by the kindness, courtesy, and intelligence of the people of Japan when I first performed there in 1977. I have had wonderful experiences there (other than the time I jumped into the orchestra pit in Osaka, and found it had been lowered from it's original depth of four feet, to ten or eleven). I love the food, the culture, and the people. Tokyo is one of my favorite cities in the world.

I think all girls are delightful. Japanese girls included.

This picture made me laugh. I have a photograph of Clayton with the exact same smile on his face.

Sometimes it's remarkable... when we see our younger selves in a child... or grandchild... or suddenly realize we are doing something a way that a parent might have done it unconsciously... almost like they're watching over us still... :D

Great pic as always... maybe for April 1... or Halloween... we can see some "rejects"... ;)
