Eric Carmen was the featured artist last Monday

Recommended Posts

I DO like Mondays!

The Plastic Waffle website honored Eric Carmen as the "Mondays Featured Artist". (last week)

The write-up they show was copied from somewhere else, but it's important to see references about the influences on other groups by the Raspberries and Eric with lines such as the following:

"(it wasn't long, however, before other groups began translating the Raspberries' sound/approach into their own hits, especially Cheap Trick and the Knack, among countless others)."

Nice job, except for the ending of the article:

"1998 saw Carmen issue his first solo full-length in 13 years, the Japanese release Winter Dreams (released in the U.S. as I Was Born to Love You a year later), while rumors began to swirl regarding an impending Raspberries reunion tour. While it was true that all four original Raspberries members met up in early 1999, and three of them performed a few months later in Cleveland at a party, a reunion ultimately failed to materialize."
