Photos of Eric with Hall & Oates, and w/ David Cassidy & Gerry Beckley

Recommended Posts

The main EC site used to have a photo of Eric with David Cassidy and Gerry Beckley (of America). Photo was taken in the mid-70's. I have since read that the three singers used to hang out a lot. Could someone post the picture again?

About a year ago, while searching Google Images for the above photo, I happened to come across a shot of Eric with Daryl Hall & John Oates. I'm guessing that they were on the same bill, somewhere, back in the 70's also. I should have saved the photo but I didn't. Has anyone else seen such a photo?

Backstage at The Roxy in L.A., circa 1976. I was a sweaty mess, after 100 minutes on stage. David is one of the sweetest guys I've ever met. He was absolutely wrecked by being a "teen idol." 

As great as it was for his bank account, he could never be taken seriously as a musician. It really messed him up, because he was MUCH more talented, as a writer, and as a singer, than anyone ever gave him credit for.

He was, and is, a terrific guy. Life is not always kind. I wish him the best, always.

Hello Mike,

Sending my thx to you (esp) for asking about the photo of Eric w/Hall & Oates. That prompted my dear friend Mary Ellen to search for the photo & post it in the gallery, which I was THRILLED to see! My three favorites together, smiling & looking super cool <3 Sometimes it's the little things that make us so happy!

Reaching out again to see if anyone knows where/when this pic was taken? I just guessed the Agora Ballroom...

Many thx. :)

E,

Thanks so much for the update on the pic and on your friendship with David. 

(Needless to say I don't think you look like a sweaty mess in any of your pictures!) 

I am curious to know how it feels for you to see yourself in so many photos over the years?

G,

Do you think I am just sitting with my arms around a pile of Ec pics waiting to post? 

(Not a bad past-time in lieu of the real thing ;)...)  

Glad you like the pics, dear.

I thought David Cassidy was great as an actor on the Partridge Family TV show.  He is not thought of as a "funny guy", but some of his interplay with the other characters (Danny, his sister, Ruben etc.)..was funny as heck. He created a character that was very likeable. 

And nobody could have sung lead on those great Partridge family records like David Cassidy did.  

I'm also a huge fan of Gerry Beckley's writing and singing on the America albums.  So good.

I saw David Cassidy a couple months ago at Presque Isle casino in Pa. He put on a great but short show. Maybe only an hour? You could tell he had a couple drinks before stepping on the stage. I would definitely  see him again. Still has the chops. And I agree with Eric, more talented than Keith Partridge.

Hall and oates have begun working on a new single song.

Their first in 10 years.

Dear Mike,

Please, please keep me updated on any/all H & O news. Have loved them 4-ever <3 Have you heard any songs from John's most recent solo album? I hear his song High Maintenance (on a XM station) frequently & it's really growing on me, although I'm partial to Daryl.

I think they sound best together. Daryl has a terrific band that tours with him. I saw H & 0 at a small outdoor concert venue in Ohio last year, what a great show!! That concert ticket was the best bday gift I think I've ever received :D

Thx

OMG...I forgot about this picture..My two favorite hotties :P Eric and David :P  I was able to meet David after a concert a quite few years ago....I told him I waited for him, but he never showed up :angry: so instead I married my Hubby and named my second born son after him..David got a good laugh out of that..he told me.."poor kid" to have that stigma attached to his name :P  I loved the both of them, but David seemed to be more approachable because of 'The Partridge Family' :P  I knew I would never have a chance with EC :P ..such were the thoughts of this young teenage girl :) AHHHHH MEMORIES :D

I know David was a friend of E's per his statements in this thread...David's had some definite ups and downs recently.  Sure he is a great guy though.  

I wanted to name my son Eric, but my husband (also from Ohio) wouldn't let me...instead the boy was named after my favorite Beatle - PAUL.

;) Cayenne

P.S. Happy Birthday to Paul on your 30th today, 1/15!!  You are a crazy-genius child with a wonderful spirit and you brighten my life every day!!

Dear Cayennegirl,

 

Excuse me that I sent offtopic photo here where you talked about DC, I interrupted you. Maybe must I find a better place to post this photo. ))))

 

Yes dear redd,

 

This old but new found photo (maybe I missed something but I didn't find it before when I googled) became one of my favorites because Eric is gorgeous here (as always).
